JVC Collection


JVC made a brief appearance in the walkman market during the ’80s, but their personal stereos had style and innovative design. The CQ-F22K for example, had a detachable radio that mounted to the headphones for compact, wire-free listening experience. Perhaps sales were low, perhaps JVC’s walkmans weren’t built to pass the test of time but finding a personal stereo under this brand name today is pretty difficult. In Japan, JVC marketed products under the name Victor.
