It was when the cassette player that came to our scene first and for more than a decade, majority of the companies grew by developing cassette players and also recorded cassettes. This was then followed by the Walkman which popularized the cassette industry and the cassette players. Thereafter Sony launched another invention known as the Discman which also revolutionized the music industry and companies which were into cassette manufacturing went through a transition to develop music CDs. Discmans gave us excellent playback class for a very long time that it seemed like things couldn’t be improved for some time. Many users even believed that nothing could overtake Discmans and that they are here to stay. That was not so since popularity of the internet increased gradually and the Discman lost its followers and users.
