Sports "walkman" w/ cassette

Recommended Posts

My "walkman" recently died on me and I need a replacement. I would be VERY interested in any deals on a sports style personal cassette player. I plan on using it when I go running so something designed for active use is preferred.

Welcome to the forums, harryhood.


While I look for a deal, check out this Pricegrabber listing and see if any of these models catch your eye. If you have a particular model I might be able to find a better deal on it:




Do you definitly want one of the "sport" models? Because it looks like if so, Sony is pretty much the only manufacturer still making them.

No tax for CT on Amazon...


In the past I know that Panasonic made great cassette models with their "Shockwave" line. They currently only make radio-only and CD models though. Here are some places that still carry the older Shockwave cassette models:


RQ-SW48V - http://shop.store.yahoo.com/discountsonline/parqshporawi.html

RQ-SW48V - http://www.millionbuy.com/panrqsw48v.html

RQ-SW99V - http://www.1-877camcorder.com/cammy/pansw99v.html


You might be better of looking on eBay for these particular models.


Otherwise you have the Sony S2 Sport models, of which I can't really find any deals on. They are all pretty much the same price whether you get one online or in a local store (Best Buy, CC, Target, etc...)





Hopefully someone can find a better deal... Otherwise that first RQ-SW48V I linked to wouldn't be a bad deal depending on what they charge for shipping.

Thanks for all the links. I'll have to dig through them.


It's really gotta be a "sports" style cassette player. I don't have a set budget, but I want a high quality model that will last and won't break if falls on the ground once and a while. My last sony (the yellow sports) walkman lasted for over 6 years of heavy and pretty abusive use.


I'm off to search the links you guys provided. :yelclap:
