Best Shower Speakers in 2017

The best thing about music is that it can create a wonderful environment anytime, anywhere. And I’m sure that’s the one reason why we all love music. But if you happen to be a music maniac, and that you crave for it even in your bathroom or when you take a shower, you better equip yourself with a decent Bluetooth shower Speaker of your choice.

Bluetooth shower speakers are not new in the market, which means there are hundreds of choices available. So there is a great chance you might end up choosing the wrong model, falling prey to the marketing gimmick of the manufacturers.

If you are somehow lost, or if you are not certain which one to pick, you can confidently choose from our handpicked shower Bluetooth speaker list below.

These speakers are carefully chosen by the Thundering Sound Team taking into consideration the design, features, price, audio (sound), adaptability/user-friendly and users’ rating and comments.

Just before heading for your best shower speaker, here’s an eye opener for starters. Mind you, this section is important if you don’t want to end up buying the wrong shower speaker.

Things to Consider While Choosing a Shower Bluetooth Speaker

Striking out other less important points, your focus will be on the following points stated below.

IP Rating- Ingress Protection shows how well your gadget is protected from outer solid and liquid intrusion, which is indicated by two digits/number (e.g. X5, 56, 67). Talking in terms of Bluetooth speaker, noticing the second digit is important as the second digit of the IP rating indicates the degree of protection against liquid intrusion. Do not go for speaker with less than 5 rating (the second digit) if you are buying a shower speaker or for using as an extreme outdoor Bluetooth speaker.

User Friendly- It is always a smart move to opt for speaker that offers quick and easy command system. By this, I simply mean the speaker should feature all the necessary control buttons such as play/pause button, next/previous button, volume control button, etc. This is important because it gives you full control over the speaker, even when your phone is out of reach.

Built-in Mic- This is a must have feature for every shower intended speaker. A built-in mic will let you take calls directly from the speaker so that you wouldn’t have to miss an important call or you don’t have to rush back to your room to attend the calls.

Price- Don’t spend too much on a waterproof Bluetooth shower speaker. There are many shower Bluetooth speaker models available at an affordable price.

Size- Most of the buyers prefer a smaller size speaker for use in shower or bathroom. If size is not an issue, and if you prefer a loud audio sound, than go for bigger size models.
