dust and/or humidity can be the source of these 'squeals'
i wouldn't give up so early considering the fact that the unit didn't make any noises when played at the store. sometimes the strangest and least likely things are the source of these conundrums. for example, i use to have the electrostat hp by koss and it was making strange popping/farting sounds the longer i played it thru the accompanying amp. i found out later that it was the humidity in my room that was the cause of the noise. as soon as i played it with the...
this may sound dumb, but try listening to your system in another part of the house connected to a different wall outlet. there may be another variable in your chain that your not thinking of, the wall outlet and/or electronic/magnetic interference from a dimmer light switch or a faulty/incompatible headphone jack on your amp.   wait... you said that the sound is present even after the hp is disconnected from the amp... it's gotta be an electrical or mechanical issue...
you should take it back to the store and have a listen thru their system. if it crackles then you can share this issue with the store owner and perhaps get some assistance from them in dealing with head-direct . if i were the store owner i wouldn't want this issue to pop up frequently in the future, as it seems not to be an isolated case of a single bad transducer. good luck

my silly guess:   he560 $899 he6     $1299 he7?   $1999 he1k   $2999
personally, i don't think the 009 needs a bhse (it being voiced for the 007mk1 cans) nor a high-end diy amp to sound 'best'. i've heard it thru a lowly, relatively speaking of course, srm-007tll and it sounded fantastic. even a woo ges makes the 009 sound great imo. but head-fi being what it is, a grounds for the connoisseur and obsessive- compulsive who must have the newest and highest priced offering to be sated, some folks look down with disdain and even contempt at...
