I don't think the HE 90 is brighter, but flatter in the midrange moving into the treble, closer to the DF target. Memory comparisons are not trustworthy. I didn't phrase that in an honest way either. The 009 is lacking until the upper treble, at which it recovers somewhat excessively. It lacks lower treble energy and some degree of presence.
