The StoryPhones Wireless Listening Post Solution

Storyphones solution consists of ultra-robust wireless headsets for the children, and a console which connects to a teacher’s computer.  The console is used to download, store, organise and distribute the audio to the headsets, and can also remotely control the audio as required.  The headsets allow the children to listen and control the trcks at their own pace, or to listen together as a group.

The StoryPhones Headset

Storyphones use very robust, wire free MP3 player headsets.  These are perfect for children to use in schools and nurseries, indoors and outside. Storyphone headsets have no movable parts to break or foam pads to pull off.  These also offer a huge range of different features, such as automatic play and group listening, making them ideal for children’s listening activities.

The Remote Console

The Remote Console (pictured next to the base station) is an easy-to-use loud-speaking MP3 player.  It links with Headsets to become the remote control for group listening, and is switch controlled for inclusive access.  Use the built-in microphone for recording your own stories and activities to share later!


  • Six wire free, rechargeable MP3 headsets for listening anywhere, indoors or outside. (Each MP3 player is charged and ready to play out of the box with sample tracks included.)
  • Foam pads that can’t be picked off! (A row of teeth inside the moulding holds the foam pads tightly in place, they cannot be picked off. The only way these can be removed is by loosening the screw and removing the plastic moulding).
  • Very robust and easy to use. Children can play/pause, adjust the volume and move through the different tracks. (Our headsets are designed to twist and bend and stand up to the constant use of little hands)
  • All of our MP3 players come with over 30 audio tracks including stories, songs and listening games.  You can also load up your own audio tracks (MP3 or WAV formats) using the supplied software for your computer.
  • Each player including the Remote Console can be set up to play a different set of tracks so seven children can listen to a different activity at the same time.  Alternatively, have everyone listening to the same track at the same time! (Remote Control feature for group listening).
  • Site license for your establishment allowing you to share your audio resources throughout your establishment.
  • Loud speaking MP3 player with record feature – the “Remote Console”; there’s also an output to drive a loud-speaker or PA system.
  • Multi-way USB base unit for recharging batteries and uploading tracks.
  • Ability to set players into different modes and settings to suit the needs of your children.
