Picked up a pair of Neumann NDH20 headphones because I have some sessions coming up where I won't have a dedicated control room for monitoring, and my current reference pair are open-backed (ath-r70x... amazing).

I don't know if there is something wrong with them or what, but man, they do not sound good to me at all. Definitely sending them back.
Let me know how you like the Neumanns. Since getting Nuendo, I am beginning to get into Ambisonics mixing. So I too shall need a quality set of sonic earmuffs.
Did you read my post? haha.

I hate them.

I recommend some quality in-ears if you're monitoring binaurally. Those seem to give me the most accurate spatial sound, but open-back headphones are definitely more comfy for longer periods.

is there a break-in period on those?

I've got some of the DT 770 Pro (250) phones i like (after many years with Sony MDR-7506) for occasional reference.

I mean, there's no way a break-in period would make it so suddenly they have any balls whatsoever. Not so dramatically anyway. They sound like NS10's to me.

I actually swapped for the 770 Pro. I had a pair many years ago and loved them. My open back AT's are wonderful. Mixes translate well with them and the back and forth between them and my dynaudios doesn't really reveal any big surprises. The Neumann's were so different sounding that there is no way I would be able to go back and forth for checking stuff without losing my mind and 2nd guessing everything.

Booked a second shot! Not exactly gear but does mean that I will be able to put microphones in front of real people again soon.

It'll be the most useful thing you have stabbed into your body all year.
