According to the research, people shower for eight minutes on average, three times a week. This equates to over 20 hours of our time being spent in showers every year, with many of us spending much more than that.

So if we spend so much time in our bathrooms, why not make this time more fun, relaxing or productive and perhaps find the best shower speaker for our needs?

A carefully selected shower speaker can be your great companion that allows you to listen to songs or podcasts making that shower time of yours a little bit more exciting.

We have reviewed the top shower speakers available on the market today

There are three main ways that people tend to use Bluetooth speakers in bathrooms which depend on the mood you are in or perhaps your morning or evening rituals.

More often than not people like to spend their shower time with more fun, so some light, yet energizing musing is a great way to start your day.

For some of us, we like to take a bath and wind down after a hard day at work, so quiet and peaceful music will surely help you get to the relaxing state sooner.

For others, productive geeks like me, we like to spend our time with maximum use and listening to a podcast while showering is the way to go.

With wireless Bluetooth speakers becoming increasingly popular and an abundance of options on the market – which speaker is the best for your shower use?

1. Best Bluetooth Shower Speaker – Fugoo Sport

Fugoo Sport, in essence, is the same as Fugoo Style we have previously reviewed and given it an Editor’s Choice award.

The only difference between the Sport and Style is the ‘jacket’ they are wearing, hence the difference in their names.

The best speaker for your shower 2019 has to offer. The Fugoo Sport is so good that we struggled to find a fault with it, simply brilliant!
The Fugoo Sport is wearing a rubber jacket which has been designed to provide additional protection from water, dust, and physical impact.

The IP67 water resistance rating allows the speaker to be submerged in water for up to 30 minutes, which is one of the best results in our review.

To make it even more attractive for travel use and stay true to its name, the  Fugoo Sport boasts a 40-hour battery capacity. This makes it the longest lasting Bluetooth speaker in our review by a country mile as no other speaker gets even close.

The speaker delivers a 360-degree sound with the help of six built-in speakers. There are two neodymium woofers, two tweeters and two passive radiators that create a vibrant, balanced and clear sound unrivaled in our review.

A handy advantage that Fugoo Sport has compared to most speakers in our review is that it has a voice-enabled speakerphone built-it. It allows you to use Google Now or Siri as your virtual assistant and even take conference calls.

Bottom Line

The Fugoo Sport is truly the best travel Bluetooth speaker which will easily get the job done in your bathroom. It is ultra-durable, waterproof and lasts forever on a single charge. Couple that with a premium sound and you have an exceptionally versatile speaker that will be your perfect companion for travel, camping, shower and any other use you can think of.

Fugoo Sport is not only one of the best rated shower speakers around, it is also the best versatile Bluetooth speaker around. We can’t think of the way you can go wrong with it.

2. Best Budget Shower Speaker – AYL Soundfit 

The AYL Soundfit is one of the smallest Bluetooth speakers in our review.

Despite its size, it packs 5 watts of sound power in a fairly compact and rugged body.

The sound delivered is very decent for its size. In fact, the speaker is louder and more prominent at low-frequency than we have expected.

AYL is one of the best cheap Bluetooth speaker available today

The speaker comes with a heavy-duty rubber strap which you can either use for carrying or attach a carabiner to it and hang it off your backpack or a bike.

The bottom of the speaker features a threaded hole allowing you to use all types of mounts with it to endlessly expand your mounting options.

Since the speaker is small in size and ultra light, it makes it one of the most portable speakers in our review.

AYL Soundfit also supports a 3.5mm jack connection, so if your device does not have Wireless Bluetooth connectivity, you can always resort to the good old auxiliary cable which also comes in the package.

The battery provides around 12 hours of music playback and takes 3 hours to recharge, which is an excellent result for such a cheap Bluetooth speaker.

Bottom Line
The AYL Soundfit is a great little speaker that is full of surprises. It is light, tough and features an IPX5 water resistance rating making it ideal for shower and outdoor use. The included strap makes it versatile to hang or mount almost anywhere.

With around 4000 positive reviews on Amazon, the AYL Soundfit is quite easily, one of the best cheap shower speakers around.

3. Best Mini Bluetooth Speaker – BOOM Swimmer Duo

The Boom Swimmer Duo is the latest model from Polk that replaces the original Polk Boom Swimmer.

In addition, the tiny speaker is one of not many that has been designed and built with specifically shower use in mind.

It has a flexible tail that can wrap around taps, shower rails and shower heads making it extremely easy to mount. If your shower does not have any of those things you can use a suction cup that comes with the speaker.

Boom Swimmer is an amazing approach to shower speakers. It is one of the best mini shower speakers you can buy today

The body is made of a tough rubber that makes the speaker shock resistant and durable. Combining that with an IPX7 water rating that allows the speaker to be immersed in water for 30 minutes – you have a pretty rugged wireless speaker that is ready to survive almost everything you can throw at it.

The integrated battery allows up to 8 hours of playback time, which is quite modest compared to the competition. Moreover the updated version now features an ability to be paired with the second speaker to produce a better quality sound and add volume.

To recharge the battery, the top cap needs to be unscrewed and open a rubber flap inside. It may not sound too bad, but in practice is quite uncomfortable.

The Boom Swimmer Duo features a 30mm driver, which is tiny and you should not expect a punchy and immersive sound from it. The high and mids are not the most refined either, creating an acceptable sound quality with no ‘wow’ factor.

Although the speaker is tiny, it can get pretty loud. Yet, you don’t want to push it beyond 70-80% of its volume, the low-end distortion becomes apparent which blurs the overall sound.

Bottom Line

The Boom Swimmer Duo is a great little speaker if you use it to its strengths. It is the smallest and the lightest speaker in our review by a mile. It will not blow you away with the most amazing audio quality, but it compensates it with the durable and waterproof design and is extremely travel-friendly.

If you are looking to use this speaker indoor, there are probably better speakers to select from, if however, you need a speaker that takes close to no room in your backpack and you are not very demanding on the sound quality – this is the best speaker for your shower in the smallest size there is.

4. Best Versatile – Treblab HD55

You may know Treblab from their headphones as that is the niche they have started out in and their main specialty. But not so long ago, Treblab have released their first speaker with Bluetooth capabilities – HD55.

The company is known for making their customer happy and getting a disproportionate amount of positive reviews. Have they managed to pull it off with the Bluetooth wireless speaker? Let’s look into it!

The speaker has a classical cylinder shape, similar in size to the well known UE Boom 2 that we have reviewed previously.

The TREBLAB HD55 is amazing speaker that will most uses and preferences except bass lovers. It is definitely one of the top shower bluetooth speaker options on the market

The Treblab HD55 comes with a spare red color cover, so if you feel that you need to add a little bit of excitement to your music device, it comes in the package.

The playback controls are simple, yet quite innovative for portable speakers. To change the soundtracks, you merely need to swipe your finger on the panel left or right. It is simple to use, and it works well, even with the fingers being wet.

As far as the speakers go, the body has four of them integrated, one dual bass radiator, two tweeters, and a single midrange. This sound arsenal results in 12 watts of pure sound power making the Treblab HD55 one of the loudest Bluetooth speakers in our review.

The sound produced is not only powerful, but also full, vibrant, crisp and clear, even at maximum volume.

One of the things that set the Treblab HD55 apart from the competition is the indoor/outdoor button that changes the sound mode to tailor it best for your environment. Opting for indoor mode enriches the sound with a better bass response, whereas the outdoor mode focuses on louder, but slightly less rich sound.

The speaker has a built-in microphone, so you can easily use it to make phone calls, and the voice quality is great.

The battery delivers quite average results, providing the speaker with close to 10 hours of playback time. It is worth mentioning that it takes around 5 hours for the battery to recharge, which we found to be quite long.

Bottom Line
The Treblab HD55 is a great lightweight speaker that delivers loud, clear, rich and distortionless sound at any volume. Although we appreciate the sound to be balanced across the frequency range, the bass lovers will find the lows lacking punch. Otherwise, it covers the wireless speaker basics perfectly and we are sure you will find this versatile speaker ideal for any type of use, including your bathroom or shower.

5. Best Durable Bluetooth Speaker – Photive Hydra Rugged

The Photive Hydra Rugged is a stereo wireless speaker with a strong focus on durability.

The body has an industrial design feel and uses a rubber material which makes it easy to hold the speaker in hands and provides additional physical protection.

The IP66 rating means that the speaker is dust and water-resistant making it a perfect companion for camping, hiking or shower use.

The Photive Hydra is the top shower Bluetooth speaker for floor placement. It has 45-degree speaker angle making the sound coming bottom-up simply great!

The integrated lithium-Ion battery provides 8 hours of use and can be recharged in one hour. Not the best battery life in our as we were expecting better results given the price tag.

The Photive Hydra Rugged has a unique shape for shower speakers that would fit nicely in your shower somewhere in the corner facing the wall. Not only it is practical, but the speakers can be positioned at a 45-degree angle to channel the sound bottom-up.

Although it is a great speaker for your shower, it fits outdoor use just as well. If you do choose to use the speaker outside at the beach, you can use a 3.5mm connection as an alternative.

The built-in two 40mm drivers and a passive subwoofer deliver a clear and balanced sound that can get quite loud. The bass levels are vague at low volumes, and progressively build up to average levels as the volume increases.

The Photive Hydra Rugged has an integrated speakerphone which allows you to take phone calls without needing to use your phone. You are unlikely to require it in the shower, yet could come quite handy at the beach or outdoors.

Bottom Line

Overall, the Photive Hydra Rugged represents a great balance between quality and price. It is also quite versatile and shower is just one of many uses this speaker fits perfectly. It produces a punchy yet balanced sound in any conditions and is tough enough to survive reasonable levels of physical abuse.

The speaker’s best testament is more than 5000 happy customer on Amazon, which not many other speakers can share. We only wished it had a slightly longer battery life, otherwise, this is the best shower speaker to put on the floor.

6. Best Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker – UE Roll 2

Ultimate Ears is one of the best speaker brands specializing in portable audio out there.

UE’s occurrence of making something that stands out from the crowd design-wise is slowly becoming their signature.

For us, it started with the UE Wonderboom, which we have reviewed below and it looked like a can of coke that was about to burst. The UE Roll 2, on the other hand, looks like a squashed can of coke.

In real, the UE Roll 2 is bigger than we have expected it to be based on web pictures. It keeps the design lines of its predecessor and visually remains identical.

Ultimate Ears is one of the best speaker brands for Bluetooth portable speakers. The UE Roll 2 is a great example of their unique approach and amazing build quality.
The design is very robust and the body is made of waterproof and shockproof grey color military grade mesh. At the same time, if you feel that speaker colors in our review are dull and boring, then UE has prepared a whole array of color options from you. They even come with artistic impressions, such as ‘Drippy’ created by the artist Jen Stark.
The best waterproof Bluetooth speaker UE Roll 2, features various colors to match your taste and keep it fun!

Similar to the original speaker, the Roll 2 features a bungee cord at the back. This is quite useful for most showers given that you have a hook or something similar. The speaker also comes with an inflatable base that can be used in a pool if you want to have your music as close to you as possible.

With speaker controls, again, nothing has changed. The massive and simplistic plus and minus signs at the front of the speaker still control the volume, which we find convenient. Conversely, the absence of playback controls on the speaker constrains us to use a mobile phone to skip or pause a song.

The wireless range has improved, and UE claims 100 feet, yet in practice, we found 60 to 70 feet (in the open) to be more accurate.

The claimed battery life of 9 hours can be achieved when using the speaker at moderate volumes. At the same time, as the volume increases the battery life drains exponentially quicker.

The area where UE Roll 2 is ahead of the competition is the mobile app that lets you control the sound equalizer levels, pair up to 50 other speakers and set the alarm.

Inside the body, you will find a 2″ main driver and a pair of 0.75″ tweeters that deliver a surprisingly loud sound for the size. The speaker manages to maintain clear mids, highs and undistorted bass throughout the volume range. The lows, however, seem to fade as the volume raises to avoid sound distortion as the speaker does not have a built-in passive radiator.

Bottom Line
Overall, the UE Roll 2 is a special speaker due to its unique design. It is surprisingly loud for its size and delivers a clear sound with a good punch of bass. The waterproof design, bungee cord, and a very compact size make this speaker perfect for outdoor or bathroom use. If you are on a budget, UE Roll 2 is one of the best Bluetooth speakers under $100 you can find.

7. Best Cheap Shower Speaker – SoundBot SB510

The SoundBot SB510 is the second speaker in our review that has been designed with shower use in mind.

It comes with a suction cup that allows the speaker to be attached to the shower wall quite easily. In fact, it sucks up on the wall so well, that it stays on it very solidly and does not lose suction.

You have a number of fun colors to pick from, such as green red, white, blue and others.

The speaker is water resistant and splash proof, yet it does not come with an official certification. It is designed to be mounted on a wall and hence not fully submerged in water as it may cause damage.

The SoundBot SB510 is more than affordable. It is the best cheap Bluetooth speaker on the market for shower use.

The battery allows for up to six hours of playback time and takes around three hours to charge. The result is nothing spectacular, but given that this is the cheapest Bluetooth speaker in our review, we think it is acceptable.

We did find the playback controls at the front of the speaker to be handy and easy to use. It allows you to pause and skip songs without having to leave your shower. Conversely, there are no volume controls, which we found quite odd.

Additionally, SoundBot SB510 has a built-in speakerphone, yet we are not sure how practical it could be to take phone calls in the shower.

The sound quality won’t blow you away, yet it very decent given how small and affordable this speaker is.

Bottom Line
The SoundBot SB51 has been specifically designed for shower use and given its price point – it is the best cheap Bluetooth speaker for the shower use there is. It features an easy to use playback controls, that are very handy as well as delivers a very respectable sound quality. If you are on a budget and looking for a best affordable shower speaker around – SoundBot SB51 is not to be missed.

8. Best Shower Speaker for Bass – UE WonderBOOM

The Ultimate Ears are represented by two speakers in our review, the UE Roll 2 previously reviewed and the UE Wonderboom.

The UE Wonderboom is a great portable waterproof speaker from UE that was designed to compensate where UE Roll 2 was lacking – the bass department.

It is similar to a cup or a can in both size and shape. The body is made of a waterproof mesh fabric also used in other UE speakers, which features the maximum IPX7 water resistance rating making it one of the best waterproof Bluetooth speakers around.

The UE WonderBOOM is a great all around speaker favouring low frequencies. Definitely one of the top shower Bluetooth speakers for bass out there.

The top and bottom end feature a durable plastic that is designed to absorb the impact in case of a drop. UE claims that the speaker can be dropped from a 5 ft height and guarantees no damage to the speaker.

At the top of the speaker, you will find an elastic bungee cord, which is not practical due to its short length. The only time we could see a use for it was the soap rack in the shower.

The UE logo at the top of the speaker is a button that allows you to pair the devices and pause/skip the songs.

The feature array, however, is pretty dull. It does not support the UE mobile app, does not have a 3.5mm jack and does not feature a speakerphone. The only physical connection on the speaker is micro-USB port for charging.

With the sound, UE Wonderboom takes the best of UE Roll 2 and substantially improves the quality of the low range. The newly added two 40mm active drivers and two passive radiators create a powerful 360° sound projection. The result is a relatively clear and rich sound across the frequency range with a noticeable emphasis on the lower frequency range.

Although the speaker is relatively small in size, it can fill an average size room with loud sound. In fact, despite its size, the UE Wonderboom is the loudest speaker in our review.

Bottom Line
Overall, we are very happy with UE WonderBoom. Its ultra portable, waterproof and robust design will perfectly fit your bathroom or shower. In fact, it is so versatile that it could be used indoors, outside, at the beach or anywhere you can imagine. The UE WonderBoom is not only one of the best shower speakers around, it is also one of the best general purpose Bluetooth speakers in a medium range. With the release of the WonderBoom, Ultimate Ears have once again positioned themselves as one of the best speaker brands on the market.

9. Best Shower Speaker With Suction Cap – VicTsing Shower

The VicTsing Bluetooth speaker is one of the smallest speakers in our review, yet unlike other similar size speakers – it packs 5 watts of sound power.

The speaker body is made of durable plastic and silicone making it dustproof, shockproof and waterproof as it comes with an official IPX5 rating. In fact, we had it fallen off the shower wall a couple of times, yet the speaker has remained fully functional.

Although the speaker has been designed for a general use, it fits showers perfectly.

First, it comes with a removable suction cap which allows you to mount the speaker on a wall or glass.

If you are looking for best cheap portable speakers, look no further. The VicTsing Shower Speaker is a strong contender to seriously consider.
And second, it features a simple carabiner that allows you to hang the speaker on a shower tap or rack.

Unlike a similarly priced SoundBot SB510, the VicTsing features full playback controls including volume, skipping and pausing. You can even use the speaker as a hands-free alternative where pressing the play/pause button will dial the last number dialed. Answering the phone calls is as easy as tapping the button once, whereas holding it rejects the call.

It also comes with two integrated microphones, which manage to capture the voice surprisingly well. This is perhaps a small feature, yet may come in handy depending on how you use the speaker. Using it while taking a relaxing bath could be one of your options.

The sound is powered by a 500 mAh battery which can give you up to 6 hours of playing time given that you keep your volume levels below 70%. It will take 3 hours to recharge the battery fully, which we found to be a little too long compared to the competition.

As mentioned before the VicTsing features a larger driver compared to other speakers of the same size which gives it a more powerful sound that can get pretty loud for the size. The sound is relatively balanced across the frequency range making it one of the best cheap Bluetooth wireless speakers on the market.

Bottom Line
We are quite pleased with the performance demonstrated by VicTsing. It is durable, water resistant and ultra-portable which puts it amongst the best budget Bluetooth speakers you can get for your shower. If you are looking for a pick where you could save some money and get a whole lot of value in return, you may have just found it.

10. Best Value Shower Speaker – OontZ Angle 3

We have previously reviewed the Oonts Angle 3 in our Best Portable Bluetooth 2019 shootout and were greatly surprised with how much value has the speaker managed to deliver for such a small price tag.

The speaker design is quite plain and some may even see it as boring, yet it is practical, compact and robust at the same time.

It won’t win any beauty contests, but the solid, rugged mesh and rubberized sides are sure to protect the speaker from dust, water, and physical damage.

The OontZ Angle 3 is quite comfortably the best Bluetooth speaker under 50 to consider for your shower.

The sound is delivered by two precision acoustic drivers and a passive subwoofer that adds an excellent punchy note to the overall sound experience.

The Oonts Angle 3 delivers 10 watts of clear, loud and distortion free sound. Highs are clean, and midrange is detailed with decent vocal reproduction. The passive radiator is positioned at the bottom of the speaker, so placing the speaker bottom down, delivers a more profound and pronounced bass compared to the vertical speaker position when it stands on one of the rubber ends.

The speaker has an integrated microphone allowing you to take phone calls hands-free.

Bottom Line
If you are looking for a budget speaker that is simple, durable, waterproof and packs more sound power than the entry-level, mini size speakers – the Oontz Angle 3 is one of the best options available. It creates loud and clear sound with close to distortion at high volumes. Quite comfortably one of the best budget Bluetooth speakers around.

11. Best Premium Bluetooth Speaker – Libratone ONE Click

We have previously reviewed one of the larger Libratone Bluetooth speaker, the Zipp and were quite pleased with the aesthetics and the sound quality.

The Libratone One Click seems to confirm the overall minimalistic yet classy design philosophy of the brand, however technically One Click is a very different speaker compared to the Zipp.

It features a partially modular design allowing some level of customization. The speaker comes with a hard rubber hook and a soft rubber loop in the box, and you can pick one of five places on the speaker to attach it to.

The unused fitment points play a role of a rubberized bumper bar protecting the device from damage in case of a fall.

Like all of their products, Libratone have approached One Click with class making it one of the best premium waterproof Bluetooth speaker you can buy

The speaker is using a mesh fabric we have seen in other Libratone speakers, which is both functional and visually appealing. The fabric provides a good grip in the hand and prevents the water from getting in as it is IPX4 certified.

At the back of the speaker, you will find a power button which like the Zipp features touch sensitive pad. The touch sensor is meant to be a feature that set Libratone products apart, which it does, but probably not in the way Libratone have expected it. Unfortunately, with both Zipp and One Click we had a similar experience where some of the finger gestures take multiple times to register. For One Click, we only had issues pairing the speaker where you need to hold the finger on the button over time.

The speaker lives up the manufacturer claim of 12 hour battery time, which is fine, but not exactly amazing.

The sound is delivered by a 1″ tweeter, 3″ woofer and two passive radiators. The Libratone claims a 360-degree sound, yet to achieve that you need to have the speaker standing upright, which is not very practical.

The overall sound is mostly balanced. The lows are present, not too punchy, yet manage to boom-out due to not being entirely controlled at times. The mids are slightly elevated and can fill up the room quite easily, yet are not as refined as we would like it to be making some of the vocals sound a tad processed. The highs do not come across as harsh, even at high volumes, but they do lack a tiny bit of clarity.

Bottom Line
The Libratone One Click is definitely not your everyday speaker and it is not trying to be. In fact, it is the most expensive shower speaker in our review and it is not only the sound quality that makes up for the price tag but also the looks. If you are looking for a speaker purely for sound, there are better options out there for this price tag. If however, you are after a lifestyle speaker that can also be a feature in your bathroom or a shower, the Libratone One Click is one of the prettiest waterproof speakers on the market.

12. Best Compact Bluetooth Speaker – Anker SoundCore Sport

The Anker SoundCore Sport represents Anker’s line of mini wireless Bluetooth speakers which is light and compact.

You may know Anker as it is a big name in efficient and affordable power banks, one of which we had the privilege of using and reviewing before.

We were pleasantly surprised with the close-to-perfect balance that Anker has managed to strike between quality and value, but can they do that again with a portable speaker that is general purpose but could be easily used in the shower?

The Anker SoundCore Sport is an amazing little speaker that will blow you away. In our opinion this is quite comfortably the best mini Bluetooth speaker available today.

With the weight of only about half a pound and a tiny size, the speaker is ultra-portable and can fit the smallest of handbags. The speaker features an IPX7 waterproof rating which is the highest rating the Bluetooth speaker we’ve seen, especially in such a small size and such an affordable price.

Also, the speaker has been designed to float in the water, so if you ever wanted to take your music to the pool, with Anker SoundCore Sport you definitely can.

The case is made of hard plastic which is reasonably sturdy, yet not as impact resistant as Oonts Angle 3, we have reviewed earlier.

The button layout is quite simple as it only has three buttons. Two buttons are reserved for volume control whereas the third button is used to pair your speaker, answer or end calls, pause or skip forward the tracks. Our only complaint is that the buttons are a little hard to press due to them being so sealed behind the protective rubber.

You can also use a 3.5mm cable connection which is hidden behind a rubber flap to protect the port from water exposure.

The battery seems to provide 10 hours of playback time which is neither good or bad.

The sound quality is where Anker SoundCore Sport truly shines as it is punching well above its weight. It is loud, clear and despite its small size delivers a very reasonable amount of bass. Both music and podcasts come out clear and balanced across the frequency range, which we do not often see in mini wireless Bluetooth speakers powered only by a single driver.

Bottom Line
The Anker SoundCore Sport is a great little performer. It is super small, light, sounds good and boasts the highest water protection rating we’ve seen in waterproof speakers. If you are shopping for the best mini Bluetooth speaker for your shower, the Anker SoundCore Sport is almost a perfect mix of size, features, sound quality and extremely affordable price tag.

How do we test?

Like with everything, picking the best Bluetooth shower speaker requires you to determine a set of features that are essential and the ones that are secondary. Going into this shower speaker review, the key five factors we have considered for our buying guide are:

  1. Ease of setup and use
  2. Audio and video quality
  3. Connection stability and reach
  4. Feature set
  5. Real life usage and practicality

This is not to say that other factors such as charging time, long battery life, watts of power, detachable suction cup, mood light, true stereo sound, LED light and many others are not important. They could be for some of us, but, in general, we feel they have less of an impact on your showering experience than the key features we’ve mentioned above.

Whatever your budget or requirements are, we hope you will find a perfect shower speaker in our best shower speakers of 2019 shootout.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does different waterproof ratings mean?
The IP stands for International Protection marking and classifies the level of protection against intrusions such as dust and water. To learn more about the classifications, please check here.
How can I make the speaker battery last longer?
There are a couple of easy tips to maximize the battery life of your wireless Bluetooth speaker:

  1. Reduce the volume, some Bluetooth speakers will last twice as long when used at 70% volume compared to maximum volume.
  2. Keep your phone closer to your speaker.
  3. Charge the speaker as soon as you have a chance, do not let it run out of battery completely.
What makes the wireless speaker waterproof?
What makes a bathroom speaker waterproof is mainly the outside material that is used on a speaker. The complexity and the reason why only some speakers are waterproof is that the fabric should not let the water through, but should not prevent or block soundwaves and distort the audio quality.

Here is a quick summary of what makes the top shower speakers waterproof:

What if my phone does not have Bluetooth?
Your only other option would be an AUX 3.5mm connection. You will need to ensure the speaker supports this connection type, so please check before buying.
How to pair Bluetooth speaker?
The instructions vary across different brands and models, yet in general, the steps are:

  1. Enable the Bluetooth on your mobile phone
  2. Hold the main button on the Bluetooth speaker for 2-3 seconds to enable pairing mode
  3. Devices pair and you can now playback your music
What can I do if the battery runs out of power?
There are two things you can do:

  1. Recharge the Bluetooth speaker battery using the wall charger
  2. Use a portable battery pack to recharge your wireless Bluetooth speaker when on the go
