I share the same sentiment as you. I had about 5 minutes with the PM1 and I wasn't thoroughly impressed. I think my thought to oleg was "these cost that much?!?, not worth it..."
After trying them at with moded SEX as well as RWAK100 i agree to it. For the asking price I would rather buy used HD800 than new PM-1
Can you measure any piece of gear that way? I've had the pleasure of owning some of the highest praised gear out, for me it allways came down to how much I valued the differences or improvements and if I'm willing to pay for it. Once you've actually lived with gear on the performance level of a Lampizator Lev7 or Lev5 for a few weeks thats when you realize how special they are and what you are missing.
The Oppo PM-1 is actually better when compared to the HD 800 as based on my experience with both of these headphones the HD 800 sounded a bit dull and recessed when compared to the PM-1 and also the PM-1 has even better track separation as it has 'perfect' I mean perfect sound reproduction once compared to the HD 800. I do recommend you audiophiles to demo the PM-1 before you purchase any other audiophile headphones as the PM-1 is defiantly worth the investment for mixing both at home or at a studio.
