Vintage Sony Walkman for sale on eBay:

It's 2021 now, and vintage walkmans are all the rage now. Who'd have thought that? I got my first walkman when I was 11, around 1987. It was a brand-less thing with built-in radio tuner. Those were the days! Riding on my bike with my self made tapes. So if you like to listen to your music the old way, a cassette player is just what you need. Enjoy your music continiously and offline, without being disturbed by social media and email notifications. Bliss.

Sony Walkman

Sony was the first company to introduce portable music by converting a recorder for journalists and reporters to a consumer product with better sound quality. This first walkman was not much bigger than a cassette tape. It proved a huge success and it wasn't before long that other electronics firms followed. Mind, in 1979 you had to pay $150 for a Walkman, which is roughly about $270 in today's money.

Did you find a vintage Sony Walkman? Great! But don't forget to also buy a vintage tape deck and a couple of blank audio cassettes to convert all your modern digital music to retro tape. Groove on, man! (Oh, talking about grooves, do you own a vintage turntable yet?)
