    Its funny that the first Walkman models all had two headphone jacks. I guess just a year or so later and forever after, Walkmans came with just one headphone jack.
    I guess they realized that two people moving around connected to the same audio source wasn't very practical.

    The use of AA batteries was great. One could use rechargeables, and carry spare batteries.
