    Hi
    How much breaking in for the k40-y?
    I have them on the VTA ST70 in place of
    the AURICAPS from yesterday.
    I think that any verdict after a week,right?

    Kost,

    It takes 100 - 200 hours of play time for the Russian PIO caps to completely break in - more like a month or two of time - playing maybe 3 hours a day.
