I think I get where you are coming from. I also prefer my sound as neutral and transparent as possible, hence the SR-009s. During my time with the HD800s and other components, I also occasionally had the EQ on duty.
From generally reading opinions of others, I was at first slightly worried before I purchased my 009s. It could have not been a more different experience than expected. In fact on this system which is: 009s/KGSSHV/PWD2 I never once could relate to any listening fatigue or anything untowards with the 009s. I rate the sound as very neutral and transparent, yet musical and very engaging. Even my 007s took a back seat and I am listening to the 009s for hours and hours on end, when family life allows. :)
