There’s something to be said for the whole retro trend happening in the consumer tech space these days. We’ve seen it work for the video game segment with the classic Nintendo consoles. Nokia made a splash by relaunching their famed 3310 smartphone last year. Vinyl has experienced a well-documented resurgence. And we even just recently reviewed a set of retro keyboards that give a nod to the classic typewriter.
So, leave it to JLab, the trendy wireless audio manufacturer, to bring a little bit of retro to the personal audio space. The company just announced their Rewind Wireless Retro Headphones, which take inspiration from the classic Sony Walkman headphones of the 80s and 90s. Modernized with Bluetooth and JLab’s Custom EQ3 Sound technology, the Rewind headphones give users up to 12 hours of untethered music enjoyment for an incredible price—just $20.
