Hear Today, Gone Tomorrow

Just over 30 years ago, Sony introduced us to the cassette player they called the Walkman and it ignited a revolution of music playback not seen since the mid-1950s introduction of the portable transistor radio. 

Not only did the Walkman change overall sound quality, small and comfortable headphones further enhanced the new experience of listening to music on the run with store-bought and custom cassettes – not to mention in stereo!

According to published reports, today marks the end of production for the cassette version of the Walkman by Sony.  Today also celebrates the 9th birthday of one of the Walkman’s technological successors – the iPod.
