I know that gifts can be new. That's why I said "and" your friend used them etc. Perhaps burn in may not be noticeable in ALL headphones,but I sure noticed it with my Tiamats. I have no issues with the mic. either. I think the problems people had, were related to drivers and the USB power connection on many motherboards. Mine included. If a USB hub is used to power the Tiamats,the noise etc. is gone. I use USB 3 to power my set,loaded the latest drivers,and have not had ANY issues at all. Speaker burn in,is not a placebo effect Jackquelegs. Speaker burn in is a fact. Trust me. I've owned, and still own, enough headphones to have made that determination. I'm no audio expert or engineer,but I know what I hear.
