Walkman is a Sony brand trade name, originally used for portable audio cassette players from the late 1970s onwards. In later years, it has been used by Sony to market digital portable audio/video players, as well as a line of mobile phones introduced in 2005.
The original Walkman cassette player, released in 1979, changed music listening habits by allowing people to listen to their music whilst on the move. The Walkman went on to become one of Sony’s most successful brands of all time, transitioning formats over the years into CD, Mini-Disc, MP3 and finally, streaming music.
