Break in time for replaced capsule?

Break in time for replaced capsule?

I recently had Bock replace a capsule on a U99b but the sound on it feels slightly less forgiving than the previous capsule. Is there any truth to a new capsule needing to be "broken in" the way headphones need to be broken in?

Headphone burn-in refers to dynamic headphones.

A condenser capsule does not need to be burned-in.

Not sure how a valve (vacuum tube) changes with use, though.

Refer your concern to Chef Bock. Why goof around on GS?
