I've had my DHC cables attached to my Westone ES5's for about 16 weeks now. I've probably burned 20 hours a week through them, or about 320 hours in total. I've had such a blast going through my music and hearing things I've never heard before. On a bad note, I've come to the realization that most of my music has been horribly mastered. I hear doors shutting, voices in the background and even dials and switches being manipulated.
For me, at least at this juncture, I can't definitively say whether I feel burn-in is real. I have listened to so many sources that it's just too difficult to say one way or the other. But what's absolutely clear to me is that my DHC cables help me to hear every note, artist nuance and unfortunately, every freaking artifact. Even still, I wouldn't trade any of it for my previous state of ignorant bliss. Tonight I sampled all my cables including stock, single-strand silver and TWAG V2's. I've packed them all away and my DHCs are back in the game.
