Is it the Walkman or the cassette?

Patricia W. Park, Amazon
25 February 2015
  • Summary: I've given it 3 stars because it slows down some times. Not sure if this is because my cassettes are old. When I remove the cassette and bang it sharply on a table the Walkman seems to gain speed. I'm still testing my theory that it is the cassette, not the Walkman.

good quality

  • Summary: I have been enjoying this cassette player for a long time and still works. It also has FM/AM radio that you have to turn a dial to find the stations. I still have books and talks on cassette tapes that I don't want to get rid of.

Good walkman

S. Kaminski, Amazon
4 September 2014
  • Summary: Great Walkman. AM/FM radio, Megabass boost. It is lightweight and not cumbersome. I would recommend paying the price for a NEW or LIKE NEW item, as the one I got seems to have some trouble moving the tape forward, and the music tends to draaaaaaaagggggggggggg.

Everything I wanted

Julie Heckmann, Amazon

  • Summary: This suits my needs for walking outside perfectly. It has fast forward and rewind, is easy to operate, and the buttons are very accessible. The sound is very good--adequate bass, but not overpowering.

Solid and satisfying performer

Anne in San Fran, Amazon

  • Summary: The player seems robust, not delicate like some players that shut off when jostled during my morning run. The rewind operation is fast. Altogether a nice little performer.
