Posted On September 8, 2019
The electronics maker will release a new version of its revolutionary Walkman portable music player, it announced Friday at IFA 2019, a leading annual consumer electronics trade show in Berlin
First released in 1979, the Sony TPS-L2 Walkman was the first truly portable personal cassette player and changed the way we listen to music. Sony has since released various iterations of its Walkman, but it’s gone the extra mile with this special 40th anniversary edition.
The Sony NW-A100TPS Walkman has a 40th anniversary logo printed on the back, and it comes with a specially designed case and package that pay homage to the original TPS-L2 Walkman. It also has a unique cassette tape interface for those who want to take a trip down memory lane.
There will also be a cheaper version without any 40th anniversary branding called the Sony NW-A105 Walkman, the company said.
