People often spend a little more in showers after they reach home and want to unwind themselves and give relief from a hassle day. To entertain such people, we have compiled a list of the best shower speaker to add a little luxury to your washrooms so you can enjoy blasting music.
Why Can’t We Place General Speakers In Washrooms?
Many people fail to understand that Shower speaker are manufactured in such a way that they are perfect for washrooms, and outdoor speakers can’t give maximum benefit.
So today, we’ll blow away all your misconceptions and by the end of this, you’ll be convinced to get a shower speaker for your washroom.
- Reason 1: Shower speakers are designed to entertain a small place or enclosed spaces. This is why it has limited bass and other specifications so the listener doesn’t feel that the music is being drummed on their head.
- Reason 2: The shower speaker comes with features like a hook to get hanged on the wall, or a loop to get hanged on something. General speakers lack this.
- Reason 3: Shower speakers are made to resist water, while general speakers might lack this feature.
- Reason 4: General speakers have omnidirectional sound but shower speakers distribute the sound evenly.

- Water-resistant – of course, you do not want to waste your hard-earned money

Now let’s see what options do we have for best shower speaker?
Ultimate Ears WONDERBOOM 2
Ultimate Ears WONDERBOOM 2 is our number one choice for a best shower speaker.
A pool buddy that can accompany you during pool parties, for complete 13 hours without being afraid of getting it dropped. Because the brand claims that it would be absolutely fine even if it’s dropped from 5 ft.
Its elastic bungee cord makes it easy to hang it. I generally hang it on the towel rack, but you can do it in the shower too.
Oh! Did I mention it comes in a compact size and design? Also, it has a 30-meter Bluetooth range, with 360° sound projection with clear vocals, this seems enough to me.
The only con is that the cord is extremely short that makes it useless. Also, we could experience some distortion when we maximized the volume.
Anker Soundcore 2
Another one on the list is made up of all exclusive technology having 12W clean and clear sound quality and can accompany you in your garden if you wish to.
Anker Soundcore 2 waterproof shower speaker is resistant to snow, rain, or dust for complete 12 hours.
It comes with the digital signal processor to set new bars of music experience with its extremely high-quality sound.
Mid and low frequencies were pretty smooth and crisp, but I guess a little distortion was experienced with high frequencies. Also, you can use it with Google Assistant and Siri.
The most important part is that calls can be connected, and put on hold even when the phone is connected.
The disappointing part was that it doesn’t come with an auxiliary cable and you cannot revert back to the last call made.
Altec Lansing Life Jacket 2
Altec Lansing Life Jacket 2 shower speaker comes with an 11 hours battery time and power bank functionality. It has a USB port to eliminate all complaints. Other than this, it has a sturdy body that makes it heavy – and durable.
I can ensure durability because I have tried almost every torture on it, and it surpassed all like being dipped into heaped sand or accidentally dropped down from the first floor.
Moreover, its Bluetooth connectivity is strong enough to catch signals from 40 feet.
But let me tell you that the audio is smooth and crisp until 90% volume level only. After 90% a little disturbance can be felt. Also, the buttons are a little hard to push due to their sturdiness.
OontZ Angle 3
OontZ Angle 3 shower portable speaker has its own charm for being super elegant and offering a neat and clean, premium-quality sound and a built-in mic. This built-in feature allows you to attend the call instead of disconnecting it. The connecting range is 30 feet, which seems quite enough to me.
Also, its triangle shape with slim edges enables easy portability.
Moreover, it is water-resistant so you don’t have to worry about water splashing at pool parties or water during showers.
Bear in mind, it doesn’t have a previous and next button that annoys the user because they have to unlock their phones for listening to a song again, or skipping it.
Lastly, you might be disheartened to know that it only has 7 hours of battery life – which is pretty less.
JBL Charge 4
JBL Charge 4 sound quality is unquestionable because it delivers clean deep bass for straight 20 hours (might vary according to a different level of volume). The design seems like a metallic grille delivering a frequency of 60Hz to 20KHz at 30 watts. The acoustic strumming and percussive is another name of perfection to me!
Also, it can withstand all kinds of wet situations like rain, water splash at pool parties or beaches, and even sand storm. So it’s like a go-to partner for every occasion.
The highs and lows of this shower speaker are just perfect. The boosted and sculpted sound waves make the experience next level!
I believe this speaker has been much better if it didn’t lack speakerphone function because it is the only con of this product.
While I do not doubt Ultimate Ears WONDERBOOM 2 as a perfect and best shower speaker. But keep in mind that you need to select according to your budget and preferences. I am sure, the buying guide and selected options of shower speaker will come into use while you decide to buy one.
