When listening to music through headphones, does the sound seem to improve over time? Is this an actual phenomenon or is it something that the brain visualizes then actualizes?

I haven't personally noticed a difference in how my audio sounds with headphones overtime. I switch headphones fairly often so that could be why. That's interesting to think about though.

Hi, I doubt that it improves. If the phones are new then a short break in period might change the sound a bit, but if they are already used for a while the sound should not change. It is likely a psycho acoustic effect and you are just "listening" better. Shocked

Good Listening

Seems to me like something that the brain visualizes, the conceives. I really doubt if there is ever a change in the type of sound, unless this originates from an audio file.
