Good questions

1 Burn in is a process where you run music or pink noise through them at normal or slightly above normal listening volumes for 20 hours or so. The objective is to allow components to bed in and allow the moving parts of the edge of the dynamic drivers a chance to slacken off and develop more freedom of movement, this has an impact on how fast they react to the current flowing through them and hence changes the sound signature some.

2 Pink noise and white noise are made up of music sine waves which cover many frequencies. White noise to me has always sounded a little bit like the waves crashing against rocks on a windy day. They can be downloaded or bought in CD form from audio companies.
