80s babies, do you remember walking around school with your uber-cool Walkmans, listening to your favorite MJ tunes. If you are even a little nostalgic, you probably have a whole cupboard full of those cassette tapes, and have no idea what to do with them! The Cassette To iPod Converter from Hammacher Schlemmer lets you bring these back from retirement, and regale you with their sweet music once again. It is a device that converts audio tape cassettes into MP3 files, and then lets you listen to the music over your iPhone or iPod touch. After conversion, the MP3 files are stored directly on your iDevice. All you have to do is download the free app, insert the cassette into the Converter, and dock your iPhone or iPod. It is designed to look like an old-fashioned music player or recorder! Just attach the headphones or connect the audio output to a speaker and push play! With two small AA batteries, you will be able to listen to your favorite retro music anywhere! It can also be converted to a PC running Windows 7, XP, or Vista or a Mac using the included software.
The Cassette To iPod Converter from Hammacher Schlemmer works perfectly well with most iPhones and iPod touches, and normal or chrome cassette tapes. It measures 4 1/2″ L x 3 1/4″ W x 1 1/4″ D, and retails for just $80.
