Fun with Bluetooth-earphones and mp3-Player for Kids

Did you know? – Tips around the Bluetooth module for hörbert

Is your child still a toddler or already a school kid? Time just flies by and the cuddly toddler phase is over. Your child is getting bigger and bigger and with it the desire for autonomy increases. Did you notice that as well? “Do it myself” is the favourite sentence. At the same time we parents are imitated in everything we do. We are the most important role models for our children.   Hörbert would like to accompany your child in all phases of life. The very youngest children like to use him as a sleeping aid with their favourite music. Kindergarten children discover their creativity with captivating radio plays and are always on the move – with hörbert in their luggage.   And what is important to the older kids, the school children? Current hits are becoming more and more interesting. Perhaps they will listen to a children’s podcast here and there. Streaming services expand the repertoire and have the ideal content for every mood. Among the best known streaming providers are Audible (www.audible.de), Deezer (www.deezer.com) and Spotify (www.spotify.com).  We have developed the Bluetooth module so that your child can listen to this content in a safe and manageable environment, without distraction from mobile phones and the like. The mobile phone remains in your vicinity to select the streams. Your child listens to the desired music or radio plays with its hörbert as a familiar and high-quality loudspeaker. This way, your child can safely and easily dive into the streaming world of the big ones.   Thanks to the automatic switch-off function already integrated in the Bluetooth module, you always have your child’s listening time under control. A special feature and exclusive to the Bluetooth module: the switch-off times can be combined. For example, if you set it to 10 minutes and 20 minutes, hörbert switches off after 30 minutes.   But your Bluetooth hörbert can do even more. Bluetooth compatible headphones can be connected to hörbert for undisturbed listening pleasure. You can even play the content on 2 headphones simultaneously.  And best of all: you don’t have to buy a new hörbert, you can install the module into any hörbert yourself and thus upgrade your hörbert. If you prefer to have us retrofit the module, we will be happy to do this for you.
