I am not a music freak and i also don't want too much bass. I only want the sound quality to be very clear. Which among these are the best?

Audio Technica ATH-CLR100
Panasonic RP-HJE120
Panasonic RP-TCM125
SoundMAGIC ES18

If you don't want too much bass, then your choice should be the one with a higher frequency response and a smaller driver (so that the bass will not go too deep for your hearing). Spec data show that:

Audio Technica ATH-CLR100: 20Hz-25kHz w/ 8.5mm driver
Panasonic RP-HJE120: 20Hz-20kHz w/ 9mm driver
Panasonic RP-TCM125: 10Hz-24kHz w/ no data on driver
SoundMAGIC ES18: 15Hz-22kHz w/ 10mm driver

Among your 4 choices and based on your needs, I would select the Audio Technica ATH-CLR100 for having the possibly "least bass" due to its higher frequency and smaller driver unit.

Do you know how to 'burn-in' headphones?

Just play 50+ hours at normal listening levels (although not really required).

I don't actually want anything 50-100 hrs of burn-in or so but can i just for the sake use the burn-in player from below given site to burn-in my Audio Technica only 2 cycles of 4 hrs each?

If not better anything can it have negative effect in any ways?
