Kids Vs. Cassette Players

Posted By on Tue, Apr 15, 2014 at 2:00 PM

There was a simpler time when a device like the cassette player was a practical household item. Now, that ancient piece of technology has been long forgotten, and a good way to stump a know-it-all child. Benny and Rafi Fine recorded the reactions of various young people of Generation Z while they try to figure out how to operate the retro device.

Needless to say, the cassette player won.

“This is a rip off because you want to listen, but you can't because you don't have any headphones,” said a seven-year-old.

Honestly, I can't remember when was the last time I seen a tape player, but I do remember listening to Eminem’s Marshall Mathers on my Sony Walkmen in middle school.

Since the vinyl revival, tapes are making a slow comeback. According to the video, over 22,000 cassettes were sold in 2011. You can buy your very own tape player for around $20 on eBay, or dig around your parent's storage unit.
