Do you really miss your Walkman headphones? Or maybe you just want to carry out the perfect cosplay of Guardians of the Galaxy? Either way, JLab's Rewind headphones can be the solution for you, with the style of the old-school bright orange headphones that the original Walkman made famous. They look more or less like the original Sony headphones, but with an additional dose of today's Bluetooth technology that allows them to cut the cable and a microphone to answer calls.
The problem is that although the Rewinds look great, unfortunately the sound and the quality of compilation can not be maintained: JLab sells the Rewinds for $ 20, and you get what you pay for here.

I have had the opportunity to try the JLab Rewind headphones in person, and unfortunately they do not sound good: the music is muted and indistinct, with basses and basses, even with the various equalizer settings that JLab offers. As for the headphones, the plastic seems cheap, and the foam pads have a hard time staying together. JLab states that Rewinding lasts 12 hours of battery life, which is good, although charging is done through MicroUSB, not USB-C, and there is no 3.5 mm connector, so you can not listen to music once the battery runs out.
You can collect the rewinds in three colors: black, blue and white, although all models are currently sold out until the end of April or May, depending on your choice of color. But you better invest the money in a pair of decent Bluetooth headphones.
