Tom Fuller's Adventure in Audiophile Land
It was an ordinary day, the sun was shining, the birds chirping and the post man is delivering his packages, carefully avoiding dogs that barked at his presence. Today however, is anything but ordinary for our main character, Tom Fuller (Look up Tomfoolery if you don't get the joke). For day, it'll be Tom's first time listening to audiophile quality headphone.
You could say that Tom is a virgin when it comes the joys of audiophilia. The door bell rang, and Tom knew exactly why. He rushed downstairs to the front door, and find no but the postman, holding onto his big package. His amplifier, DAC and headphones have arrived. After thanking the postman for the delivery, Tom eagerly stepped into his study, where all of his music, now re-downloaded in the most high definition format available, awaits him. His ears perked up, expectant of the pleasures that awaits Tom. Tom finds himself shaking as he stripped away the packaging, revealing the seductive aluminium finish of his amp. Tom took off his glasses, he did not want anything getting between his ears and the beautiful audio he desired. As he connected his system together, his hands gently moved across the surface of his DAC, admiring its luxurious curves. With a trembling hand, Tom pushed the power button to his amp. As the amp turned on, Tom felt the heat from the tubes, and his ears screamed with the force of a thousand tinnituses, yearning for the sound. As Tom plugged in his headphones, the connectors linked together with a satisfying click. It was time.
Tom was not sure if he was ready for it all, but he is in far too deep to turn back now. His finger touched down on the play button, full aware of what is going to happen, and then, it hit him. "Aaaahh~" Tom moaned involuntarily, lost deep in the pleasures of his cans. Each note of the music hit his ears, strong and yet pleasurable. The bass showed him frequencies he did not know before, the mids bewitched him and the treble gently sent shivers down his spine. This was heaven.
Hours later, Tom removed his headphones, his eyes half closed and his mind numb from the pleasure. he managed to get back onto his bed, and dropped onto it. As he drifted off into the dream world, a smile appeared across his face, for tomorrow, he will do this all again.
