Urban Outfitters: Making cassette tapes cool again?

It seems that Urban Outfitters is trying to make cassette tapes and vinyl records cool again! While there has been an upsurge in vinyl sales lately, I question whether tapes will pick-up steam as well?

I would guess that a large portion of music consumers today have probably never seen a cassette tape or own a cassette player. Tapes are not the most user-friendly of mediums, but I must say I am intrigued by the attempt to bring it back!

Vinyl comes with its perks of amazing sound quality, which is probably a main selling point for music enthusiasts.

Luckily, Urban Outfitters is also selling tape players and a portable record player, along with an awesome tape to MP3 converter. All those mixed tapes you may have sitting in a closet somewhere can be brought to life digitally! Would make for a nostalgic trip down memory lane 🙂

If Urban Outfitters can make purchasing music cool again, I am all for it! Even if it’s just purchased for the sole purpose of a collectors item. You can browse its selection online or in-stores. What do you think of this trend?
