ION Tape 2 GO- USB Cassette Walkman

ION Tape 2 GO- USB Cassette WalkmanIf ever there was one device that defined the 80’s, it would have been the popular Walkman. This diminutive square rectangular device is the precursor of today’s MP3 and other portable music players. Instead of digital songs stored in flash memory, the songs come in analog form and stored in cassette tapes. It became a very popular medium for listening to the music in the 80’s. However, the technology that both the Walkman and cassette tapes use has become obsolete through the years. But the appeal of nostalgia is still there among people who cherished the 80’s down to the early 90’s. Today’s generation may still have that 80’s experience using this unique ION Tape 2 GO- USB Cassette Walkman.

But the ION Tape 2 GO- USB Cassette Walkman comes with some added features that today’s generation may also appreciate- it provides users with a way to convert analog sound from cassette tapes and make them digital as MP3 files.
