 It is not release yet. 10K is the "special" introductory price.  Without the amp. Makes the 009 a great value; especially since the 009 bests it in build quality (by ALL accounts) and has equal or better sound quality (by most accounts). I've seen a few reports that say the Hifiman is better than the 009, but most say it is not as good or just different. I'd still like to hear for myself.
I read it too. How could it have just disappeared? Weird. Edit: Never mind. I think WB is referring to a different long post which probably none of us read.
I would guess that your comment was deleted because you made yourself sound like a HiFiman dealer in your original post, apparently unintentionally. If you care, contact the mod who deleted it and ask why...

 I've always wanted a WA6 SE for my work setup, but it is not practical for me. Would you say the WA8 is a similar sound signature to the WA6 SE or closer to the WA7?
Maybe try setting your pre-amp to 0 db gain (unity gain) and using the BHSE volume control. if it resolves the issue, it will help you narrow down the source of the problem.  Re: grain - It makes me think of photographic film grain or wood grain. That is, the surface texture of the material. I'm not really clear on what it means in audio-babel, but probably one of the many words for distortion.  Audiophiles have as many words for distortion as Eskimos do for snow.
 Same here. Ordered early July 2015, I think.
I fully agree. I just did not want anyone to think that I was claiming that the PM-3 is superior in sound quality to the LCD-XC (for example), because it is not. However, I'd would pick the PM-3 over the LCD-XC as my office headphone for a number of reasons that I already detailed. 
 Edit: I don't want to have an argument over this, but that is not what I said.I said that the PM-3 is better than headphones I've heard under 1K (a number have been discussed above). All the ones you listed are approx 1K or more. I did say that it beats some closed headphones over 1K, but I did not mean the headphones you listed. i was thinking more of models from Final and some others.
They fit my average size ears fine and I find the PM-3 comfortable enough to wear all day. I had a pair of over-ear Momentums that touched my ears and they were like a torture device to me, so I get why that would be an issue for you. I do not find the highs harsh at all, but they are a bit rolled off. I partly agree with you about the bass. It does not have slam, but it does go fairly low. Overall, I hear them as neutral and I think the mid-range has exceptional...
