The one bit I really don't get is that most of the kids didn't "get" having to use headphones with the walkman. Although ear buds are much more popular now, some kind of ear-mounted speaker is still the standard for portable music; the connection port even looks the same.

Ben, but everything these days already has speakers built-in, so these kids were expecting there to be speakers. They all knew what headphones were, they just didn't know you had to have them.
