Same here. I love the SR-009s with metal. Marginally more than the 7MKIs. It was surprising to me as I didn't like other neutral headphones with metal, such as the HD800s.
The debate regarding tonality cannot be decided on either side. The transducer is as much responsible for end result tonality as is the rest of the downstream - all of it. I am very pleased with my SR009s atm, but will see what changes when I get my KGSSHV.
