It’s pretty safe to say that the iPod (in its many forms) has more-or-less conquered the portable music playing market. Of course that wasn’t always the case. There was a large period of time where the Walkman reigned supreme. If you weren’t walking around with one of those bad boys clipped to your belt, you weren’t one of the cool kids. Well now you can reclaim that 80’s look without the need to create mix tapes.
If you head over to Urban Outfitters you can snag yourself a $50 Cassette MP3 Player. It has the look and feel of a classic Walkman, with the technology of a modern MP3 player. Granted, it is no iPod, but it can be loaded up with music onto an SD card. For maximum authenticity, this retro-style device is powered by a pair of AA batteries. None of those fancy rechargeable lithium-ion batteries here!
