While I can understand the concept of the parts "breaking in" because of course most of it is mechanical, I think the differences people hear after breaking in are mostly due to their getting accustomed to the new monitors.

The good news is it's probably not hurting anything and doesn't cost anything unlike some expensive audiophile snake oil so if it makes people feel better and if they indeed do hear a difference, who am I to argue?
Do what makes you happy!

Is there any evidence for this?

Hi!

If attack and decay changes so is the frequency response.
