If you’re talking strictly about audio quality, there’s nothing to miss about cassette tapes and boomboxes. Analog sound that can wear down over time just doesn’t compare to digital tunes. Even still, whenever we see an 80s inspired boombox design on a t-shirt or a pillow it’s hard not to feel a little pang of nostalgia. There’s something cool and rebellious about young people everywhere carrying heavy-ass ghettoblasters on their shoulders playing their favorite music for all to hear—whether they want to or not. Walkmans and discmans killed the boombox (and MP3 players put the final nail in the coffin) but it’s time to bring it back—sort of. The free Jamboxx app turns your iPad into a boombox, only lighter and with better audio quality.
