Around the pillar supporting a building, people was flowing like a river.At the side of the stream of walker, a girl waiting someone pulled a cable on the front of the chest.
Because the song finished or she found a friend in the distance, she removed earphone by pulling it and tilting her head slightly.To Set her eyes on the walkers, she kept looking on the stream which ran near her.
This sight might represent the relationship of music and us very well.
Walkman hit the market from Sony about 30 years ago.As the portable music device was radio caset recorder before, the emergence of Walkman was the revolutionary event.
Until that time, it was common to carry heavy and bulky radio cassette recorder on the back.However, its purpose wasn’t for listening to music at anywhere but to play music outdoors.
After the creation of Walkman, the emergence of portable device even a girl can put into a pocket and carry resulted that new style listening to music in anywhere and anytime has been made up.
Scenery about music has changed as well.Because it has come to be common sense carrying your favorite musics with a mobile player and listening to it as you like.And earphone was added to fashion item.
