I don't have monitors so I couldn't say, I mix only on headphones. That's not the best idea in general and like I said, I'm not the best at mixing to begin with, so it's probably not a fault of the K701's.
They sound amazing either way, I seriously doubt you'll be disappointed.

I'm happy with the 701's as well I think they give a good picture
Yeah they do take a while, I saw some posts online about letting them play white noise on loop overnight for a week or so. Dunno how good of an idea that is though.

Most of the articles I've seen about burning in headphones dissuade playing white noise through them overnight...I'd say just use them and let them break in naturally, especially since you're planning on just using them for recreation.

I play normal music and sounds through them, no specific noises. At the normal listening level too.
I was listening to some music and playing games on them last night so they will gradually break in. Plus I get used to them that way too.
