Turn heads with this Sony Walkman cassette player and drippingly retro orange headphones. Take a break from digital media and live in the moment. Rewind, fast-forward, flip the tape, watch it spin. Listen to an album all the way through. Slow down and embrace the analog experience that is music on magnetic tape.

* This unit is labeled on its exterior as "Rechargeable." This means it is compatible with the optional rechargeable adapter that Sony produced during the same time period as this model of Walkman. The adaptor was sold separately and is not included with this cassette player. This Walkman will run normally on 2 AA batteries, which are included.

This cassette player has been expertly refurbished by our analog electronics gurus. This unit has new drive belts, a calibrated playback speed, a deoxidized volume potentiometer, and demagnetized tapehead. All components have been gingerly polished by our refurb technicians. If you're getting into cassette tapes for the first time or revisiting an old music format, do it on a Sony for consistent, reliable audio performance.

Please note this little player had an entire life before Retrospekt. It will show signs of previous usage, but it is guaranteed to be working, clean, and restored.
