Ion Tape Express Converter: Play Your Cassette Tapes One Last Time

by Lambert Varias

Immortalize your mixtapes with the Ion Tape Express, an easy to use device that converts your favorite songs to mp3 files. Just pop in a tape, connect it to your computer via USB, and let the bundled EZ Tape Converter Software work its magic.


As you may have guessed from its looks, the Tape Express is also a portable cassette tape player. So if you just can’t let go of your tapes even after recording their contents, you can still use them with the Tape Express. Pop in a couple of AA batteries and take it with you wherever you go, just like old times.


You can get the Ion Tape Express at Firebox for £50 (approx. $80 USD). Nostalgia guaranteed.

    This is a piece of shit and best avoided! First; you can’t use the software wothout firswt downloading iTunes (they don’t tell you that!), Then the software, once it has recorded your tape, fails to convert it to the itunes M3 format at least 50% of the time. Secondly it asks you if you want to separate the tracks (you can list them towards the end of the process)and then promptly only lists the firswt 2, the others are God knows where at this point! Your’e also supposed to convert the MP3 format to others formats you might want to use – wwv files for example – you can’t.

    This is absolute rubbish and a waste of money – stay clear, spend your money on a ligitimate product, not this crap!

    I have a way round the limitations – connect up to Ion Express, play the tape but don’t record, then just switch on the sound recorder function which you can install on your computer. Mine is downloaded onto what is called ‘Freecorder 4′. Job done – nice and positive !!!

      The worst piece of shit I’ve ever bought. Sound quality sucks – even though I’ve tried many tapes (to be sure that it isnet because I am recording from old tapes). First of all the soundrange i pure – I cannot measure it, but maybe between 50-13.000 Hz. Secondly the tape is not played of smoothly, so every sound wows.
      Conclusion: not at device to be used. A waste of money!!!
