Audio Cable Break In Time

Moon Audio Headphone Break In Time

Audio Cable Break-in time Recommendations

for your hifi audio gear to sound optimal.

All audio cables require a period of break-in for the sound quality to be at its full sonic potential.

Headphones Break In Time

All headphones - 300 hours

Moon Audio recommends giving headphones 300 hours to break-in both mechanically & electrically (though most of the break in process occurs within the first 100 hours) because this allows time for the drivers to open up and gives you the best experience. We suggest connecting your headphones to internet radio each night while you sleep for an "easy break in" experience and after 7 days, they should be broken in.
