Best Shower Speaker Guide | 2020 | Affordable, Durable, Form & Function


While some of us love singing in the shower, others love blasting their favorite tunes while taking a shower and doing their "happy dance." In fact, listening to music in the shower can help with anxiety, release tension from everyday life, and even lower your blood pressure.

However, who has not been guilty of turning up their home stereo so loud while in the shower that you woke up your neighbor's parents who were staying over, or worse, you woke up your spouse as he/she was napping from their 2nd shift job?  We've all done it, and let me tell ya, it's an instant mood killer for all involved, am I right?

Today, there’s an easy and often affordable solution to this problem: an in-shower music experience. 

What you say, it is not for you? Hold on Nelly. What's life if one can't enjoy the small private moments one has while getting clean? Stick with me here, and I promise to open your eyes to a a little self-indulgence, and it is more affordable than you might think!

Nowadays, bathroom-safe speakers are bluetooth compatible (meaning it is wireless), and goes easily from your bathroom counter right into the shower, with some that attach right to the shower head.

I spend countless hours researching products in the market, often traveling to manufacturing sites, speaking with the manufacturers, and distill it to a few good products that I believe are worth your attention. 

These below are the best of the best, and prices range from $14.97 to under $45. All are IPX rated (see explanation below) and come with manufacturer's warranty.

SHOWER SPEAKERS - How they Work (2020)

These days, most shower speakers are operated via wireless technologies like Bluetooth, and can easily sync to your iPhone or Android phone or stereo. 

Shower Speakers Can Go Beyond the Bathroom
Today, shower speakers can double as portable outdoor (or "go anywhere") speakers. These waterproof Bluetooth speakers are popular with people who want to take the music or radio with them... on the go.

Unlike the bulky "over the shoulder" portable speakers of yesteryear, these mobile speakers are compact. But just because they’re small doesn't mean they don’t pack a punch.

Speaker technology has improved significantly over the last 10 years. This means that speakers have not only gotten smaller and louder, but more affordable. Even today’s budget waterproof portable speakers offer high-quality sound.

Finding the best shower speakers can be a daunting task. There are a lot of things to consider. In our shower speakers reviews, we will look at waterproof shower speakers using six factors:

  • IPX Rating
  • Sound Quality
  • Battery
  • Price
  • Warranty
  • Form & Function
  • IPX Rating is one of the best, if not the best factor you should be considering if you are looking for a shower speaker that can last for years. In the shower, a host of things can happen such as soap, shampoo bottle falling down and things naturally getting wet. Depending on circumstances, buyers will or should assume that whatever speaker they buy will definitely get wet and will fall down unintentionally. The shower speaker should be at least IPX4 certified. IPX7 is even better: your speaker can then be considered fully waterproof.
  • Sound quality is another important factor that can make or break the game. You don’t just want speakers for functionality. You want them to actually be good at being what they are. Even if you have an indestructible speaker, but sound bad, the product in itself can be considered bad since it is not functioning as a proper speaker. Good sounding bass, mids, and lows are the usual things that any speaker enthusiast looks for when hunting for speakers. 
  • Battery. In the past, gadgets were powered by AA, AAA and even bigger types of batteries. They hold a lot of power, but they are also on the heavy side. Now, most portable devices come with Lithium Ion batteries because they are compact and best suited to run the juice on the complicated boards of our current devices.
  • Price is important, especially for budget users. Now, there are different price ranges for all kinds of gadgets. Waterproof shower speakers are no exceptions. There are thousand dollar-priced speakers and even million dollar ones. It can be said that the price you pay is the worth you get. To a certain extent that may be true, but people do not buy these devices for one-time With relation to price, we also should also consider the specifications. Buyers should ask themselves, for this price, are the specifications and features of this waterproof shower better than everyone else?
  • Warranty. Make sure any product you purchase has at least a 1 year warranty.

As a person that loves to teach and share, and a former science grad, I love due diligence and doing research, and sharing the best technology gadgets that the market has to offer. Not just any gadget that passes the first 5 criteria above. The products I recommend must also have Form and Function.

Here goes, my list of Best Shower Speakers for 2020 that are Affordable, Durable, and with Form and Function.
