Sorry, corrected now
£119,099 for some headphones seem a bit excessive

Think you meant £119.99
Only 100 squid too from the warehouse like new
Seem to be on deal on a fairly regular basis now but good price for Mk 2s
Dont know. Got p7 the other day and send them back because of poor sound quality

Not quite. Even Monitor Audio suggest a 70 hour run in period for their loudspeakers.
Maybe they recommend a long burn in so you don't return them straight away because your not happy with the sound and allow your ears/brain to become used to it?

If the mechanical properties of the support and/or surround degraded so quickly as to make a big difference in sound over such a short period wouldn't they continue degrading at the same(or a similar) rate?

They were open box but yes i try them for a while and nothing impresive happend. My missues plasticky bose for 79.99 sounds better and my beyerdynamics dt770 are a 100 percent killer (even on s7 which just can copewith them)

Totally agree. To equate them with cars that have massive loads and temperature fluctuations and myriad complex mechanics is nonsensical.

So much BS spoken about hifi and people swallow it like the gull(ible)s.

Really gets my goat in case you could not tell.

So a driver doesn't loosen over time? It flexes the precise exact same amount from when you open it til the end of time? Manufacturers and even Richer Sounds will say to leave the loudspeaker or headphones playing, even without you listening to them, just so they "bed-in". How would that adapt your ears in this case, and what good is a 70 day "run-in" period when most returns are 14/30 days.
HiFi gullable I agree, when it comes to HDMI cable quality, and speaker cable materials etc. Not movement of drivers.
