I woke up early in the morning one Friday morning in late September. As leaves on the tree began to fall, and the ground is decorated by a new found blanket of yellow scatter, young kids are making their way to school to embark on a new year of challenges. What lies ahead of them is uncertain; what is certain is as surely as the sun rises from the east, the bell to indicate the beginning of class is about to ring. I started my car, and stopped just before the end of my driveway, patiently waiting for a spot on the road between cars driven by parents eagerly trying to get their children to class on time. Sitting in the seat next to me inside a hemp-looking cotton drawstring bag -- with the "thinksound" logo proudly proclaimed across the front -- is a pair of On1 supra aural headphones. I got on the road, drove out of my neighborhood, and merged into an expressway to a endless stream of motorists traveling to their destination of the hour. My destination of the hour, however, happens not to be work or school. Instead, it was to the dealership to drop my vehicle off for a morning appointment. I arrived right on the minute, pulled into the service bay, and dropped my keys off to the friendly receptionist at the desk, who led me to the shuttle bus sign up sheet next door. Fifteen minutes later, I boarded a minivan that took me to the University of Calgary. Still, clutched in my arms is the pair of thinksound On1 in its drawstring bag. After a brief chat with the driver, I arrived to door of my building. I got into my office, pulled out my chair, sat down, and placed the supra aural headphones next to its new friend, the V-MODA XS, who was already there waiting for it on the desk. Things began to heat up as a few of my coworkers dropped by to witness this rivalry on the brink of commencement. I plugged the thinksound On1 into SilverStone EB01-E and EB03 setup. Here at APH Networks, the first day of the thinksound On1 was about to begin.
