We couldn't tell the new ones from the old ones in a blind test. So I would say that it is 99% myth and 1% maybe because we might have done better with more listeners.
Or perhaps B&W breaks in their drivers. For the price, they should. As to why all manufacturers don't, even using an accelerated process it takes a good 8 hours, and time is money.
