Sony celebrates the 40th anniversary of the Walkman cassette player with this charming, nostalgic short film. In it, we get a guided history through all the different designs and styles of the Sony Walkman music player.

Today, portable music isn’t really anything special. We all carry thousands of songs in our pockets at all times and people wearing headphones are a super common sight. But before the Walkman came out in 1979, the only place people could listen to music was at a concert, or at home with a record player. The Walkman changed all of that. It let us listen to whatever we wanted, wherever we wanted.
