Walkman is a Sony brand tradename, 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 Sony Walkman was blue and silver which contained bulky buttons. It also included an extra audio jack so two people could listen at a time.

The original Walkman cassette player, released in 1979, changed music listening habits by allowing people to listen to their music whilst on the move. This could turn everyday tasks like commuting and running into pleasurable experiences, give commuters a sense of privacy, and add a soundtrack to urban surroundings.

The Walkman was devised by Sony co-founder Masaru Ibuka, and first built by audio-division engineers Nobutosi Kiraha and Kozo Osohne in 1979. Ibuka loved listening to opera on his frequent trans-Pacific flights, but felt Sony's existing portable player - the notebook-sized, five pound TC-D5 - was far too unwieldy for everyday use, and far too expensive to ever sell successfully. Sony thus began work on a portable player that could combine light weight and stereo sound with a price an ordinary consumer could afford.
