How many gadgets did smartphone kill in the last 10 years? Uncountable! In the 90s we had a separate dedicated gadget for everything! Camera for taking pictures, compass for directions, FM radio, a game-boy for playing games. But most important of all, we had the Walkman! It wasn’t only about listening to the music, but also the touch and feel of the device.
Each album’s cassette had it’s art cover. More pricey ones had lyrics of all the songs written in the cover.
The feeling of putting a cassette into the walkman, closing the lid and pushing the play button with a click is highly satisfying. Digital songs are intangible and they do not even come close the touch of a cassette and a walkman. No wonder, the opning scene of the “Guardian of the Galaxies” featured a walkman. You can watch that fun scene by clicking here.
I still remember, when I was 12 years old in 2002, by father bought me a walkman as a gift for getting good grades in school. I couldn’t be happier!
I still remember having a big collections of cassettes which I used to take pride in. I still have them. But sadly they are somewhere in my house rotting! They have so many songs which I would love to listen! Not only thorough the walkman, but also using my smartphone.
But luckily there is a way! In AliExpress there are walkman cassette players, which using you can not only listen to your old cassettes but also convert those music into digital mp3 files. Which you can move to your smartphone, listen to them and get back to your 90s life.
So now in this blog I am listing down the Top 4 USB Walkman Audio Cassette Players in AliExpress.
