The new EHEIM streamON+ 9500 is a powerful, universally applicable Streaming and circulation pump with a new type of ball joint. The comfortable magnetic holder holds the pump securely at the desired place in the aquarium. The EHEIM streamON+ 9500 is very easy to maintain and durable and is characterized by very smooth running.

The description says "quiet", and it is not. The humming buzz at 100Hz is too annoying for a living room aquarium. The damping feet look too small and stiff and don't do the job. Before, I used a streamon+ 5000 unit that I didn't like either (for other reasons) but it was more quiet and I can compare with its larger and softer damping feet.
Compared to the older design, the new one is easier to clean and seems more powerful for a comparable size, may be too powerful, I should have gone one grade lower. The stream power can be lowered in the unit though.
In total, if you are not after quietness, this is a reasonable and well built stream pump.
