Default Best Method to Burn-In (Break-In) IEMs?

Hey guys,

I recently purchased a SoundMagic PL30 and will purchase a Klipsch Image S4 soon to replace my busted Creative Ep630s.

I was wondering what technique you guys use to burn-in your IEMs fresh out of the box. I know there are different ways of "burning in," but I would like some tried and tested suggestions as this is the first time I'll be conducting these.

While I'm open to suggestions, I have actually tried the following methods:

1. Continuously play the same looped audio file from the JLab Audio Site.

2. Download all the files from the Burn-In Wave Website and create a playlist that repeats.

My playlist is as follows:
1. All noise tracks
2. 30 Second Rest (Silence)
3. All the Sweep Files
4. 30 Second Rest (Silence)
5. All independent low frequency waves
6. 30 Second Rest (Silence)
7. Sound Channels Mix
8. Heavy Drum
9. Various test sounds (Shower, car, church walking, and storm)
10. 1 Hour Rest (Silence)
-Repeat everything for approximately 6-7 hours (including the 1 hour rests)

Please advise me whether these methods are appropriate for burning in and if my test times are proper. I wouldn't want to destroy my drivers, but would like to expedite the process of getting optimum sound.

Thanks for any replies!
