CKR9 compared to GR07 has much better depth and height in the image, better sub-bass, better layering, detail, etc in the bass. Mids are more natural, forward, and ethereal than the GR07. The treble is less sharp, but still very bright and detailed. The high mids can be a bit much for some people, but I love how they sound. Overall, the sound is much more realistic and natural. The bass is some of the best I've ever heard and can make you think you're listening to over ear headphones or even speakers on some tracks. Imagine a GR07 with more forward mids, a more forgiving (still bright, sparkly) treble, and more overall refinement and you'd have the CKR9.
As far as the JVC comparison, I think the consensus is something like CKR10=850 > CKR9 > 750. It all depends on preference though. Those who like intimacy, warmth and more mid bass will prefer the 10 where those who love clarity, detail, and airiness will prefer the 9. I've seen people say the 9 beats the 10, or the 750 beats the 9, etc. All about what you like.
