Your NEW music box - made in Germany

the new hörbert

The NEW hörbert is much more than an MP3 player for children. Robustly made of solid wood and sustainably handcrafted in Germany, each hörbert is a valuable one-of-a-kind.

Thanks to child’s play intuitive operation with nine colourful buttons for nine playlists, hörbert is already suitable for children from the age of 2.

The hörbert design is unique and a real feast for the eyes. Solid wood meets high-quality stainless steel. Plastic parts are reduced to a minimum. Even the colourful keys are made of wood.

The inside of hörbert is also impressive. With Bluetooth, recording function, microphone, sleep timer and the possibility to play Internet radio, no wishes are left unfulfilled. And all this without expensive follow-up costs such as subscriptions or licences.

hörbert’s rewritable memory card offers an incredible amount of space for your own listening content – about 50 hours of music and radio plays (when using MP3 files) fit on the SD card. You are completely free to decide which content you want to include – depending on your child’s wishes, age and preferences.
This is very easy with the help of the hörbert software for Windows, Mac and Linux, which can be downloaded from our service website.

When you purchase, choose which free children’s songs and stories you would like us to include in your hörbert package: We already include over 2 hours of music and audio plays.

Die bunten Tasten sind jetzt Holzdrehteile geworden. hörbert beinhaltet damit weniger als 5% Kunststoffe: Nur noch die Leiterplatte und die Bauteile darauf. Das lässt sich nicht mehr verbThe colourful keys have now become wooden turned parts. hörbert thus contains less than 5% plastics: Only the circuit board and the components on it. There is no more room for improvement left.

Your storage space will be larger because hörbert can now play native mp3 and m4a files. That’s why more hours fit on the same card – each of your memory cards can hold up to 5 times the amount of content compared to the previous format.

In the future, we can easily provide you with new functions and bug fixes so that you can always be up-to-date with your hörbert and its many possibilities.

We are introducing the Playlist Language, with which you can control hörbert down to the smallest detail. This feature will be expanded in the future. It’s already a treat for tinkerers.

hörbert is made of wood

Children learn from nature. Frame and handle are made of solid beech wood, the front is made of poplar plywood and the back of birch plywood. With hörbert, your child has a loyal and long-lasting companion. Insensitive, robust and suitable for romping around. If something does break, you can have any mishap repaired in the hörbert workshop – thanks to the replaceable parts – or repair it yourself with a little manual skill.

Things of value stay with you for a long time. We rely on wood, stainless steel and few (but recyclable) plastics. This, combined with features like durability, repairability, minimal packaging and CO2-neutral shipping, are our answers to your search for a sustainable MP3 player.
