If you’re old enough to recall the glory days of the eight-track tape, you’re about to be treated to a trip down memory lane. We Are Rewind, a retro-inspired audio outfit with its eyes on the past, has announced a new generation of the cassette player, and the company is pulling out all the stops when it comes to modern integration.
The We Are Rewind Cassette Player boasts an updated design that strikes a perfect balance between the iconic look of Sony’s original WALKMAN line and more modern audio peripherals. Inspired by the wave of 80s originals that have been making a comeback, as of late, and citing mainstream media offerings (like Stranger Things, and Guardians of the Galaxy), the aesthetic qualities of the device are second to none. But it’s the player’s technical upgrades, like a rechargeable lithium battery, integrated Bluetooth, wireless listening, and internal recording function that make it all-the-more appealing. Buyers will also find that the example’s aluminum finish, 10-hour autonomy, and sleek architecture make it a great addition to any retro collection. If you’re interested in acquiring one of your own, head to We Are Rewind’s website, where the device is available for pre-order at an attractive $100.
