This walkman works really well. There are zero problems. The sound quality is amazing and rarely makes static sounds. Overall this walkman is great and was worth the buy.
We bought the wrong item and the company helped us right away to get the right one and to get a refund. My son is really enjoying this neat piece of retro technology.
We are very glad we chose this company.
Not only a cool object that is spotless and works perfectly, also really cool packaging and some stickers included! I've cracked out some of my favorite old mix tapes from friends, family members, ex-lovers -- and am really enjoying being able to listen to them while walking around.

Nice product, it has some things I did not expect to receive like the headphones and I absolutely love them, recommend in a 90%, it’s not a brand new but I bet it is the best option today.
Shipping was so fast! Packaging was so cute and in perfect shape!
My fifteen-year-old daughter is really digging the '80s and '90s and mentioned one day about how cool it would be to have an actual Walkman. I visited Retrospekt and found one that I thought she would love. It arrived very quickly, packed exceptionally well, and in excellent shape for a 32-year-old machine. My daughter loved the original orange headphones and has been listening to cassettes since she received it. I highly recommend this reputable company.
A blast from the past:)
wow! i love this walkman so much. it is AMAZING quality.Everything works great, the radio, the sound. it came with a cassette single too. Definitely recommend purchasing.
Bought this for my niece who wanted to know if her mom or I still had our walkmans around . Arrived quickly, she loves it and says it works perfectly.
Bought this for my 10 year old daughter's birthday. This is the only thing she asked for. I am so glad I found Retrospekt because we can have the vintage item and most importantly peace of mind it will work well!!
I really like this walkman. Despite its age it looks great and I've been enjoying listening to cassettes again. I highly recommend!
This beautiful Walkman arrived quickly,and sounds great! Will definitely be ordering from Retrospekt again. Thanks for keeping these awesome analog players alive!
Came in a great packaging with batteries and a cassette tape included included! Now I can play all my city-pop and future funk cassettes on the go!
Such a huge difference in quality from what I have been using! I’m a recent cassette collector and had been purchasing cheaper models from Amazon and Urban Outfitters to try out. Even with following directions on how to properly play your tapes, I had gone through so many that were unfortunately eaten by the machines. I decided to pay a bit more for this refurbished Walkman model and I’m kicking myself for not going this route sooner.
The quality is fantastic. Very sturdy and plays my tapes fantastically. I surprisingly love the headphones it came with, that were inspired by the original Walkman headphones. The sound is decent and they are comfortable.
I also appreciate that the packaging came with a handling and maintenance booklet to keep the cassette player in great condition too.
So happy to own this!
This is worth it. After getting a Walkman from eBay whose motor radically sped and up and down constantly, and then trying a new "retro" tape-player from Amazon that had way too much hiss, I am happy with this tape player.
Now if you guys could only start refurbishing VCRs. I can't find a good replacement VCR to save my life.
Love my Walkman! Came professionally packaged (sparkly silver retrospekt box) and even included a cassette single. Operates like brand new. I had purchased a new personal cassette player from Amazon and it didn’t sound very good to begin with, and then broke a couple weeks later. Pondered taking my chances on eBay before I found Retrospekt. You are so much better off getting a quality vintage Sony that was refurbished by a professional, than taking you chances on “owner refurbished”. Awesome selection of cassettes and records as well!
This was the BEST birthday present!! I love it!
Packaged well. Plays well. Came with nice cassette single to test it. Reason to keep playing your old cassettes. Also, modern recording artists like Billie Eilish are releasing cassettes again so retro devices like cassette players ie Walkman are back in style and everything has come full circle.
This Walkman is awesome. I received it in great shape, and every cassette I have played on it sounds great. I am very happy with this purchase!
I'm loving it, it's nice that it comes with a radio too. I've been jamming out with it sense I got it!
This player works great!It plays a really nice sound with any cassette that I put in and functions well. The only problem I had was with myself getting dust on the tape head, but I cleaned it off with rubbing alcohol and that fixed it. I would defiantly recommend this to anyone trying to listen to cassettes even first timers trying to experience cassettes for the first time.
Sound quality is great!
Everything is working great!
Ordered as a xmas gift to myself, had to return for repairs but customer service was swift, understanding and helpful and for that I will continue to be a returning customer. Walkman works fantastic now and I'm thoroughly enjoying my fast-growing cassette collection. Thank you.
I've been using this Walkman for a few weeks now and it works like a dream! I highly recommend it for anyone who wants that genuine cassette listening experience. Not only is the actual device great, but the extras are too. The headphones and the bonus cassette track were a great bonuses!
Absolutly love my new walkman, with a good condition cassette tape, this thing really sings! Very into what this company is all about, I will be returning again! Peace n Love!
so glad I made this purchase. the walkman works perfectly and was well packed for shipping - thank you guys!
I have been searching for a working Walkman (that does not cost $1Mill ) for months ! I am so glad I have finally found it, thank you ! My husband is obsessed with it and it is in mint condition, it works great and the packaging it came in was amazing. THANK YOU !
I needed a new cassette player and I live in a small place, so I didn't want to take up much space. First thought: Walkman! I was so happy to find a refurbished one. It works so well, looks great, sounds great. Very pleased! Thanks!
Better than I expected, I don't regret it, after a long time I finally have one of my own. Very nostalgic, I can't wait to buy other tapes, I've been browsing the website and they have the tapes of my favorite bands. I recommend it
Best birthday present ever. Very well packed lovely box, player works and sounds like new, headphones are much better than expected, and tape from the same period when player was manufactured. Amazing, amazing, amazing!
Awesome! Blast from the past but feels new.
Great condition. Works perfectly. Loved the free cassette!
They did what they promised.
Walkman was at my door two days.< I’m happy.
Love this lil piece of tech, Its super fun making mixtapes and listening while I clean the house
It arrived exactly how I expected it to come and it sounds great!
It’s awesome, really makes appreciate all types of music and it has am/fm radio now that’s cool!
Bought this for my teen and she ABSOLUTELY LOVES IT!!!! You can tell by the photo here.
Thanks so much for bringing these back to life. You do amazing work!!!! Thank you!!!!
Probably one of the coolest music listening devices I’ve ever owned. A must have for any audiophile!

It looked amazing. Except for a few scuffs, looked new! Everything worked perfectly and they included a cassette tape so we could try it! Awesome!
Sound quality was beyond what I expected, and the walkman looked great! Very happy with my purchase.
Just like I remembered it plays GREAT!
I'm so glad I was able to fine this Walkman!I had been looking for one on ebay for months and most were way too expensive or for parts only. I'm happy I was able to find this great website! Thank you Retrospekt!
I randomly wanted to do an 80s concept shoot & started looking for a Walkman. I was so excited when I found this site b/c the look was perfect. The fact that it works and the sound is amazing is a huge bonus. I love when I buy things for shoots that I can actually use afterwards. Great buy !
A real blast from the past that works like it's brand new and looks great!
I was looking at used Walkman’a on eBay but was nervous about the quality and if they would actually work. Really glad I found your website. The Walkman came in a custom box and worked perfectly. My kid LOVES it. Nice job
Just as described, but BETTER. My daughter wanted this for Christmas and I have to say, when I opened the box, I was instantly transported to Christmas 30-35 years ago (when as a teenager myself) I opened a Sony Walkman! I really cannot believe this is refurbished… It looks and feels brand new. Great job and thank you so much! I also loved the little extra “gift tape” you included...That little touch just really put my whole shopping experience with your company over the top. Proud to be a repeat customer!
Awesome packaging like new and came with batteries and a free cassette tape of “Damn Yankees”. Already got my four tapes for my reintroduction into cassette with finally a real Walkman.
Absolutely fantastic!!! and it honestly sounds so much better than I thought it would, it plays tapes like magic and it’s definitely worth the price!!
Amazing!! Such a great job on refurbishing this 30 year old Walkman!! I�m 19 and all my life I�ve loved the 80�s and always wanted to experience one of these and I�m blown away I love it!!

Amazing experience! Got 3 days early alongside free buckwheat cassette. New, custom packaging, and a super comfortable orange headset. Would 100% recommend for anyone looking to buy a high-quality retro cassette player. You definitely get your money's worth.
