It should, because they're every bit as good as their hype, which is an extremely rare thing.

Congrats on the Kings!

 

You must have one the finest headphone collections on here now, theres not many who own both HE90 and SR-009.

Thanks!

 

Although I don't have the HE90 anymore (need to update the sig)

 

IMO the 009 is vastly superior.

HE-90 owners usually insinuate the contrary... but hey, I would also defend my 15k+ headphone if I were them ;)

I too owned both, but now only have the 009's - the HE90s simply arent as good!

Wish I could judge. Probably won't ever own either of them... (Maybe in my next life, since I've been so good in this one very_evil_smiley.gif)

 

Also, there hasn't been much talk of the SR009's in Mr Mahlers thread...? Thought there would have been mayhem!

Yet I'm confident that I'm going to get one in a few years (even on a crappy job), by saving up money.

Correct, the HE90s aren't as revealing or as balanced. I think I may even prefer the HE60s over their big brothers, with my WES they're epic (not an exaggeration).

Browsing through What Hi-fi magazine this month briefly, I noticed there was an advert for the HD800 and in the corner a little pic of the HE90's. Thought it was odd. When did they stop making them?
