Who doesn’t love music while they shower?
Nothing makes you feel more epic than listening to kick-ass music while getting clean. It’s like having your own personal soundtrack for your life!
The problem is: regular speakers are no good in the bathroom. If they get wet, they’ll end up shorting out, breaking, or becoming a real electrical hazard.
Enter shower speakers…
Shower speakers solve every problem in one easy step: waterproofing.
With good waterproofing, the best shower speaker provides you instant access to your music while you shower or bathe.
Best of all, a Bluetooth shower speaker can connect with the phone you leave in your bedroom, safely away from the shower steam and heat.
It’s the perfect solution to help you enjoy every moment of your shower!
Read on to find out our recommendations of the best shower Bluetooth speaker options for you. After reading thousands of reviews on dozens of products, we’ve narrowed our options down to the absolute best to ensure you have the music you want for your shower.
Compact, highly versatile design, can be paired with a second speaker, tough rubber, highly durable and shock-resistant, IPX7 water rating, and good volume despite its small size.
Not the best sound quality.
From a speaker this small, you definitely can’t expect top-of-the-line sound. With a single 30mm driver, the sound is “good” at best. If you want punchy, crisp, immersive sound, you’re better off considering another speaker. However, the volume on this bad boy is surprisingly loud for its size, so you’ll always be able to hear your music over the shower.
This is where the Boom shines! Not only does it have a highly durable, drop-proof, shock-resistant rubber body, but it has IPX7 waterproofing, which means it can be submerged for up to 30 minutes no problem.
But it’s the “tail” of the speaker that’s really the winner! The tail is long and flexible enough to wrap it around shower heads, faucets, curtain rods, even the lip of your sink. Thanks to that tail, your shower speaker can be hung literally anywhere in the bathroom!
The range on this bad boy is on the shorter end—33 to 66 feet—which means you’ve got to keep your phone fairly close to pair it. However, syncing the device and playing your music is brilliantly easy.
You only get about 8 hours of playback time, but that’s about par for the course given the tiny size of the speaker and the built-in battery. The act of charging can also be a bit tricky—you have to unscrew the speaker’s top, open the rubber flap, and access the built-in battery.
At the $40 price tag, you’ll find few speakers more convenient to use anywhere, anytime. The speaker is compact enough to fit in your bag and that “tail” makes it ridiculously easy to hang it in your shower.
Best battery life on the market, very durable construction, fully waterproof, built-in microphone for taking calls, 360-degree sound, excellent volume, good sound, lightweight and compact, and great price.
No way to adjust the sound balance.
With SIX built-in drivers—two 28mm neodymium tweeters, two 39mm neodymium aluminum domed mid/woofers, and two 43mm x 54mm passive radiators—you get sound that far exceeds most of the shower speakers on the market. Though you can’t adjust the sound balance, you’ll find that overall, the speaker can hold up to any kind of music you throw at it.
And the volume—wait until you crank it up to full, and you’ll be blown away by how loud it gets!
FUGOO offers different “shells” around identical core components, and the “Tough” is the shell built for hardcore use. Whether you’re floating on a lake, camping in the rain, or taking a bath at home, this speaker’s durability is never in question. It’s 100% waterproof, shockproof, mudproof, and snowproof.
The speaker comes with no sound controls, but it does have buttons to control playback as well as to take calls. Thanks to the built-in microphone, it’ll make answering your phone in the bath or shower a breeze.
The device has a range of 66 feet, which is about average for Bluetooth devices. However, it’s built to be specifically compatible with both Google Assistant and Siri, so you can use it for hands-free tasks the same as you would an Amazon Echo or other “smart” speakers.
No other speakers on the market can come close to touching this one! With 40 hours of battery life (at 50% volume—more than loud enough!), you’ll find this speaker outlasts all its competitors easily.
$80 is a higher price tag than the others on our list, but it’s absolutely worth it if you want a speaker guaranteed to outlast its competitors.
VERY loud, ideal for use outdoors, heavy bass, good sound, easy to pair with Bluetooth devices, weather and water-resistant, decent battery life, and features instant connectivity.
Does not include a charge indicator and cannot switch between multiple devices without taking time to re-connect.
The volume goes VERY high considering its small size, and it will fill a wide open space with 10 watts of distortion-free, well-balanced sound. Thanks to the two precision acoustic drivers and the passive subwoofer, you get great bass, mids, and highs from this small speaker.
Place the speaker on a hard surface, and you amplify the bass significantly! Note: The speaker may vibrate/move if the bass is turned up, so be aware of placement if you have the bass on high.
The speaker is dust-proof, rain-proof, splash-proof, and sand-proof. You can't swim with it or submerge it, but it can be used in just about any showering or bathing environment without damaging it. It's durable, lightweight, and easily portable!
The built-in speakerphone and microphone will allow you to make and answer calls without disconnecting your device.
While it doesn't have the best range (30 feet), the one-touch pairing allows you to connect to any device in range. And the auxiliary cable input makes it easy to connect non-Bluetooth devices for playback.
With 7 hours of run time, it doesn’t have the best battery life. But the speaker is designed to power down after 15 minutes of inactivity, a feature that helps to conserve battery life.
At $25, this is one the cheapest of the speakers on our list. It's great for outdoor use, can handle a surprising amount of wear and tear, and is beautifully user-friendly.
Highest volume on the market, well-balanced sound, double bass radiators and double 12W drivers, multiple “sound modes”, IPX4 water-resistance, decent battery life, can be used for phone calls, easy-to-use playback controls, and comes with water-resistant bag.
Bass isn’t as punchy as you might want.
Across the board, this speaker delivers some of the best-quality sound around. Thanks to the double 12W active drivers and the two bass passive radiators built into the speaker, you get sound that remains crisp and clear as you run through the treble and mid-range sounds. While the bass isn’t as powerful and punchy as you might like, it’s good enough for all but the most hardcore of EDM music.
However, you’ll love the “indoor/outdoor modes”. On indoor, your sound is set to emphasize the bass to echo off your walls, while outdoor mode focuses on clearing up the highs—better-balanced sound no matter where you are.
Not only is this built for maximum convenience (its cylindrical shape makes it easy to stand up in your shower or on the sink), but you’ll find it’s fairly rugged and designed to last. The IPX4 waterproofing makes it splashproof, and the speaker comes with a water-resistant bag you can store the speaker in while you’re bathing to guarantee it never gets wet.
The built-in microphone makes it easy to take calls, and you’ll find the various buttons are awesome for controlling your music while you shower.
Reliable range on this bad boy is between 33 and 66 feet, making it better than the average device.
At 75% volume, you’ll find the speaker gets about 10 hours of battery life. Charge time is around 5 hours.
$70 is a bit of a high price tag compared to some of the other options on this list, but well worth it if you want a speaker capable of seriously high volume!
Best sound quality on the market, good battery life, IPX7 waterproofing, 360-degree sound, excellent Bluetooth range, connect to a second Wonderboom for surround sound, very durable design, and very high volume.
Doesn’t handle mid-range sounds as well as expected.
With two 40mm active drivers and two 46 x 65mm passive radiators, this compact speaker is built for amazing quality 360-degreesound. You’ll find that while it struggles a bit in the mid-range sounds (one reviewer called it “weedy, lacking detail”), the treble and bass are as crisp and clear as you could ask for. Whether you’re a rock fan, an EDM fanatic, or a classical music enthusiast, this speaker can handle it!
Volume-wise, there are few shower speakers that can compete. Reviewers have called it “ridiculously loud”—perfect for listening to music over the sound of your shower.
With IPX7 waterproofing, you can rest assured that it will never be damaged by water, drops, dust, or falls. You can use it in your pool, in the bathtub, or in the shower, and the durable exterior will survive anything you throw at it. It’s one of the strongest, most rugged shower speakers out there! While there are no buttons to control the music or receive calls, you can rest assured that it’s a speaker guaranteed to deliver years of regular use without so much as a scratch.
Not only does it have a better-than-average Bluetooth range (100 feet/30 meters), but you’ll love how the Wonderboom can be paired with another Wonderboom speakers to produce a surround sound effect. Connection is a breeze and takes a matter of seconds to get the speakers set up and playing your music.
Nothing too special here, just the industry-average 10 hours of battery life on high volume. However, charge time is fairly short (just 3-4 hours) and you’ll be back to listening to your music in no time!
At just under $70, it’s a tad on the pricier side, but well worth it if you want the best quality sound you could ask for from any shower speaker!
Fully waterproof, comes with suction cup to attach to your bathroom wall, reliable Bluetooth connection, easy pairing, surprisingly loud and crisp sound, compact, easy-to-use buttons, IPX5 certified, durable, and can be used for phone calls.
Not the best battery life and can’t be fully submerged in water.
If you’re looking for high quality sound, this is a great choice. While it’s not the best sound on the market (see our Fave #2), you’ll find it’s good enough that you’ll only be able to tell the difference on very specific songs (like Bohemian Rhapsody).
The 5W speaker is larger than average, delivering excellent volume and a steady, balanced sound that packs both punchy bass and consistent treble with no distortion. You’ll find the stereo sound on this bad boy is absolutely excellent.
Built with a rubber casing and IPX5 waterproofing, you can rest assured this speaker is built to last! It’s fully waterproof (though not submersible) and will be resistant to drops.
In addition to the hanger built into the top (perfect for hanging over the shower head), it also comes with a suction cup that sticks it to the wall, providing hands-free access to your music. The two built-in buttons both work as track navigation buttons and volume buttons, and the multifunction button can be used to both Play/Pause your music and take calls.
Not only does it come with the latest Bluetooth update (4.2, compared to the 3.0 used by older models), but you can also plug in your devices via MicroUSB if you want to use them in your vehicle or at home. Though the range isn’t great (just 33 feet), the ease of pairing more than makes up for it!
Sadly, with this bad boy, you only get about 6 hours of battery life at 70% volume (less if you really crank it up). You’ll need to re-charge it at least once a week if you want to keep the speaker all charged up for your daily showers.
No shower speaker can beat the price tag on this one—just $20 for high quality sound and durable construction. Short battery life is a small cost to pay for this great deal!
