At the very beggining of the movie, this child (Peter Quill) is listening to a very special mixtape: the "Awesome mix 1" in his SONY TPS-L2.

Peter, listening to his SONY TPS-L2, while he waits in the hospital. A few minutes later, the movie jumps to 30 years later, and we can see Peter (Chris Pratt) again, listening to the very same mixtape while is looking for a gem in a lost planet.
The SONY TPS-L2 with the Awesome Mix 1. If you are interested, you can have a high quality replica of this tape. Look here. Peter has a strange deck in his spacecraft. Looks like a custom-made deck inspired in the 70s design. Peter wants to share his music to Gamora (Zoe Saldana) and put his MDR-5 headphones over her head.
At the end of the movie, Peter decide to open an old gift from his mother, and it contains a new mixtape: Awesome Mix 2.

Finally he plays the new tape in his deck.

007 A view to a kill (1985)

See A view to a kill at IMDb

Two guys are hidden under a wooden port. They wear wetsuits and they seem to be recording a conversation with a walkman.
Timing: 1:04:53

Here's the walkman; it has two red stickers: one at the top (to hide the SONY logo) labeled as "DGK/32" and one at the bottom labeled as "484/GK". It's clearly a SONY WM-F5 which, BTW, doesn't have any recording feature. A diver gets out of the sea. She is Pola Ivanova (Fiona Fullerton) and wears a SONY WM-F5.


Pola unlocks the security lock of the walkman. This model is water resistant.

Now she pulls out the tape with the recording. She trows out the walkman and look at the tape. It has an important secret conversation of 'the bad': Max Zorin (Christofer Walken).

She and 007 get together and take a bath. After it, she quickly gets the tape and run out...
Timing: 1:10:11
...Where a man is waiting for her and the tape. But they were shocked to realize that it has only classical music. Because 007 has copied the secret conversation in another tape and then recorded music over it. It's clear that it's a Philips UF-I 90 cassette
So Bond (Roger Moore) was smarter than the girl and finally gets the recording.
