I'd like to see ones for myself but seems not that soon although I saw my friend's review recently.

The JVC DX-1000 is my current favorite headphone when partnered with the Darkvoice 337. I like a warm HP and tubes. Bass has to go really low and the highs should sparkle without sibilance. Voices should be lifelike and the sound stage needs to be wide and layered. This is what I get with this combo.
I tried the 7000's at the ChiUniFi meet and was thoroughly underimpressed. They were really neutral and did everything well but didn't have the magic of the DX-1000 which grab you and take you somewhere else (better place). I wanted to like the 7000's since I also own the markl moded D-5000 with jena wire cables but it just didn't deliver for me. YMMV
Many folks think the 7000's outshine the MD-5000's so you may have different ears than mine or different preferences. Listen to both before buying either.

Something is wrong with your ears my good man.

Agreed. Or he has not tried them at all. Maybe he means that they are not as bloated as the JVCs?

There's nothing wrong with his ears.
'Neutrality' varies from listener to listener, in practice it is just as subjective as the qualification 'fun'
And he meant it in comparison with the DX-1000s.
