I really like my 009, I would never sell all my stereo equipment for them. I use them for late night listening, can not disturb my wife or baby :)
I will have to disagree that one has to spend 009 amt of money to get that level of resolution. I am a new 009 owner, had them for about a month. I also have the 007 m1 and BHSE, I have owned the 007 for a long time.
To be honest I can not hear anything more with the 009 over the 007. Every time I think "ah that's something I have not heard before!" I switch to my 007 and sure enough it is there in the recording as well. My main interests are in jazz and classical since I have been a piano player for the past 25 years. I also have HD800 that I use at work, and those resolve details just as well as the other 2.
I think what it comes down to is these are my new toys so when I am listening to music I am really listening. So obviously I am going to hear things in the music since my level of attention has been increased. I found them fascinating in this regard, but going through my Cds and Sacds I can honestly say I have not heard any new information on them
If someone cares to point me to some particular recordings where you do feel you are hearing something new on the 009 please let me know. I don't really like other genres besides those 2, but I might be willing to take a chance and live on the edge
