I had one of these (probably 20-25 years ago?) I worked with a bloke who was a bit of a gadget freak and used to travel to the US a lot and he bought it out there. I bought it off him a few years later when he was on to the next big thing.

It had a lead acid battery which was nearly as big again as the player (this pic is without), it was heavy, and you couldn't breathe on it before it skipped! It was a bit useless as a mobile player, so I ended up just using it as a source for my domestic hifi until I got a proper player.

EDIT - just found a pic of something like the model he replaced it with.

Ooooh! The original blue-and-silver Walkman with the double headphone sockets... :shock:

Okay, I'll admit it, I'm impressed. 8)

Those sell well on the bay £200+ area depending on state etc I had one BITD could have sold it 50 times over. Lovely deck.

I'm looking for a mint Sony WM-7. The first Auto-rev & remote control Walkman £100 BITD

Aha, some walkman interest, I knew I wasn't the only retrobike walkman freak. Thoroughly approve of the black WM-2.

Here are some of mine...
