Go Retro With NINM Lab’s ‘IT’S OK’ Bluetooth Cassette Player

Jul 10, 2019

With the resurgence of vintage audio players like the vinyl turntable and Walkman, it comes as no surprise that a number of independent manufacturers are diving deeper into the realm of analog than ever before. The latest development in the realm of all-original audio comes in the shape of NINM Lab’s ‘IT’S OK’ — a Bluetooth-capable cassette player that brings retro nostalgia into the modern-day.

The ‘IT’S OK’ recalls some of our favorite principles from early-era cassette players, including the implementation of AA batteries, an iconic rectangular design, and visible internals that give you a first-hand look at the tech’s moving parts. If you’re lucky enough to have a few cassettes laying around, they’ll pop right in; but, if you’re like us, it’s likely that you’ll rely on the player’s integrated Bluetooth and 3.5mm audio jack — features that are entirely new to the medium. The ‘IT’S OK’ also comes in three different colorways — Sakura, Cloud, and Evening — giving buyers a trio of devices to accent their own personal style. If you’d like to pick up your own retro player, head over to the company’s Kickstarter page.  For just $75, you’ll be able to relive your cassette-laden past (albeit, with a modern twist).

Kickstarter: $75+
