A look at the Sony Walkman TPS-L2

Legends. These are the truly great, revolutionary products that change everything. They elevate themselves from being merely a design icon to a cultural icon. The Sony Walkman TPS-L2 introduced in 1979 is one of those legends. It’s the first Walkman ever made and the first product I’m showcasing that’s older than myself. This was the first time music became truly portable making it historically more significant than even the iPod. The TPS-L2 has become a collector’s favorite so expect to pay a premium for one in good condition. I was lucky and purchased this from a university museum for a reasonable price.

Fantastic write up and photos.
