The Audio File is a promotional cosmetic item for all classes. It is a pair of light green headphones, with a large, portable 70's woodgrain gramophone resting on top. The tonearm of the turntable bounces as the player moves. The vinyl record seen on the item spins while equipped.

This item is awarded in Genuine quality to players who open What's in the Team Fortress 2 Soundtrack Box?

Audio Files awarded after the June 29, 2023 item schema update are untradable, as they are awarded from untradable Team Fortress 2 Soundtrack Boxes. Audio Files awarded prior to the item schema update remain tradable, and may be listed on the Steam Community Market.

Update history

April 20, 2017 Patch

  • The Audio File was added to the game.

June 29, 2023 [Item schema update]

  • Added an untradable version of the Audio File.


  • The item's name is a pun on the word "audiophile".
  • The description is also a pun, referring to the term "scratching" (producing sound effects by moving a vinyl record back and forth on a turntable) and the idiom "make something from scratch" (i.e. from the very beginning, without any pre-made components).
