Sony cassette Walkman goes for $550

Anything is possible on eBay


Who says the Walkman is dead? (And no, that's not a play on Dead Man Walking.)

A gold-plated 1994 cassette version released to celebrate its then-15th anniversary, the WM-EX1HG, sold a few days ago for $550 on eBay, according to TechEBlog. The vintage collectible is ensconced its own presentation case and has never been used, the seller says, so don't expect it to come preloaded with the greatest hits of '94.

Speaking of which, extra credit goes to those Cravers out there who can name the top hit of that year. Answer: "I'll Make Love to You," from Boyz II Men. Why would anyone want to buy something that might remind them of that?
