For you 009 owners. How do you find the bass impact and power compared to other dynamic and planar headphones?

I was always happy with the bass impact, though not in love with it. Hit a bit too quickly with minimal bloom that made the mental image seem a tad over-sharpened. I think the Focal Utopia do a better job in this regard and maintain much of the speed and improve on the dynamics overall.

With my KGBH amp the 009 had great bass impact and foundation, but with my eXtatA and KGSS I felt the bass was too thin.

In the end I sold the KGBH and KGSS along with my 007 and 009 to help fund my daughter's college education. But I kept my Sennheiser Baby Orpheus forever (HEV70 + HE60) and eXtatA which I have to install my new hybrid amps boards one of these days.
