Best Overall

1. BassPal Wireless Bluetooth Shower Speaker

The BassPal Bluetooth Shower Speaker may look adorably small, but I dare you to judge its sound output based on its size. The speaker has two woofers on either side, which allows stereo sound. This is quite impressive considering the fact that this is a single-component speaker.

The BassPal speaker has a multifunctional LED display that tells time, battery level and allows you to navigate the speaker. The speaker also has an FM radio mode.

We wouldn’t place the BassPal here if it didn’t have lights. The speaker has a beat-driven light show option. This means that the lights on the speaker pulsate based on the rhythm of the music offering a synchronous audio-visual experience. The speaker also allows you to customize the color of the LED lights.

The speaker has an IPX7 waterproof rating. This means that the speaker can keep water from getting to the electronics even under the immense pressure of being three feet underwater for 30 minutes. The speaker will likely not have to stay underwater and endure such pressure for that long since the speaker comes with a suction cup that allows the speaker to stick to any smooth surface. (1)

The speaker conserves the battery by automatically lowering the volume when the sound level of the audio file is low. This makes the speaker less than ideal for audiobooks since the speaker keeps lowering during pauses.
  • Connectivity: Wireless
  • Speaker Type: Built-In, Indoor, Outdoor, Home, Travel, Party
  • Recommended Use: Smart Phone / Tablet
  • Portable size
  • Can endure the immense pressure of being 3 feet underwater
  • Floats
  • Works with smart devices
  • Customizable LEDs
  • Stereo sound
  • Not a good option for audiobooks
  • Limited battery

The BassPal speaker is unbelievably small for the power it packs. The speaker can easily fit in a pocket and yet is able to deliver low pitch sounds, including bass. It has all the features you’d want in a smart Bluetooth speaker, and then some. Despite the size, the BassPal Bluetooth speaker does not compromise battery life either.

2. Blufree Bluetooth Speaker with Colorful Lights

The Blufree Bluetooth Speaker is made to survive on water. The speaker has carefully designed using Archimedes’ principle such that only the bottom dome of the speaker goes underwater whereas the top done stays outside.

The speaker uses 360 sound technology and produces a stereo sound that sounds as good as a 5.1 surround system. The speaker also has volume adjustability, and its radially large woofers ensure the quality is preserved even at high volumes.

The Bluefree Bluetooth speaker has a rechargeable internal battery, so you don’t need to change the battery. It has 7 different color themes, so you can set the theme to your mood.

One particularly useful feature is the built-in microphone. The speaker connects to your phone via Bluetooth and stays connected even if your phone is 15 meters away. Say you’re in a shower while your phone is in the bedroom, and you get a call. The Blue free Bluetooth speaker allows you to answer the call right from the speaker. You can communicate via the built-in microphone and the speaker without ever having to get out of the shower or the tub.

The speaker comes with a handy USB cable. You also get a 30-day money-back or free exchange guarantee and a 1-year warranty.

The Bluefree Bluetooth has the highest possible waterproof resistance rating – IPX7. But this is merely half the story. This Bluetooth speaker is designed to be used floating in the water. The part of the speaker that actually remains in contact with water is completely sealed, and no water can get in regardless of the duration. IPX ratings are given to the whole body of a product, but if the bottom 70% of this speaker were to get an IP rating, it would be IPX8 (which is given to hermetically sealed products). This extra water resistance may play an important role in extending the life of the speaker.

IPX rating is given based on performance in regular water of pH 7. However, when you add soap to water, it reduces the pH and makes the water alkaline. The resulting alkaline water has a much smaller surface tension than normal water, which means that soap water can even get into small holes that normal water resists unless the pressure is large. Hence, a speaker-rated waterproof for pools may not be as waterproof for showers and bathtubs, and you should always try not to submerge speakers in soapy water.
  • Connectivity: Bluetooth
  • Speaker Type: Surround Sound, Outdoor
  • Recommended Use: Sound Systems, Computers, Smartphones, Tablets
  • Easy to set up and use
  • Allows remote hands-free calling
  • Quite loud for its size without any decline in sound quality
  • It may be too small for pools

The Bluefree Bluetooth speaker is designed such that no water—regardless of the presence or absence of soap—can get in, it is likely to survive in a bathtub and a shower much better than other speakers.

Best Endurance

3. EBODA Show Light With BlueTooth Speaker

The EBODA Bluetooth speaker is a rechargeable stereo shower speaker made to endure extremes. The speaker has a 2000mAh battery which makes it last up to hours even with LED lights on. Without lights on and at 70% volume, the speaker can last up to 36 hours.

The speaker has stereo-separated woofers. The sound produced reflects off of any walls on either side and makes the sound appear as if it’s being produced via two separate L-R speakers. The woofers are also distorted free-even at maximum volume.

The speaker offers 5 different LED patterns to choose from. (2)

The EBODA Bluetooth speaker has an Ingress Protection rating of IP67. The first digit indicates the level of protection against solids, whereas the second digit indicates the level of protection against liquids.

6 is the highest protection against solids and the first digit being 6 means that the speaker is protected against the finest of dust particles.

7 is the highest water protection level for electronics (except something that is sealed air-tight, which would get a rating of 8).
  • Connectivity: Bluetooth, Wireless, AUX, TWS
  • Speaker Type: Single Speaker
  • Recommended Use: Smartphones / Tablets
  • 2000mAh unmatched battery
  • Stereo sound
  • LED patterns
  • High endurance
  • It may not be loud enough for pools
  • Sound quality lowers if too much water accumulates on the woofer

The EBODA Bluetooth speaker is also shockproof and does not break even when dropped. These specs make the EBODA Bluetooth speaker a pretty sturdy speaker for everyday use. You don’t just have to use it in the shower; you can take it to the beach, to a swimming pool, place it in your car, or wherever you want. This Bluetooth speaker can endure any conditions it finds itself in.

Best Designed For Showers

4. Hydro-Beat Portable Waterproof Shower Radio

The Hydro-beat is one of the best speakers in the market. The shower speaker is certified by FCC, CE, and ROSH. The manufacturer is so confident that you’ll love the product that it comes with a 1-year money-back guarantee.

The speaker has an FM radio and charges via a USB cable. The speaker has 10 LED lights that can be customized according to your preferences. If this is not enough to impress you, the speaker is waterproof and dustproof. It also stays afloat in water.

The speaker is smartphone compatible with an 8-meter Bluetooth range. It also has a 5W woofer. However, it does not have a lot of buttons and has to be controlled via a phone.

The speaker has a built-in mic that allows you to take calls and talk on calls remotely. The speaker consumes too much power, however. It takes three hours to charge while the battery only lasts about 6 hours with the lights on. But this may last a whole week if you only use the speaker when you take a shower.

Unlike some of the other speakers that we selected because of their general features, the Hydro-Beat Portable Waterproof Shower Radio is designed to be used in the shower. The speaker is not just resistant against water but can also survive the high pressure of being submerged 1 meter deep in water.

When stuck to a wall via the suction cup, the speaker stays half an inch away from the wall. This further reduces water exposure as the water dripping off the wall doesn’t flow over the speaker.
  • 1-year money-back guarantee
  • Microphone
  • Smartphone compatible
  • 8 meters range
  • 5W speaker
  • FCC, CE, and ROSH certificates
  • Battery life may not be enough

The speaker is already waterproof, but this keeps water from worsening the sound quality. The distance also allows the sound to reflect from the wall resulting in louder output.

Best Smart Home Compatible

5. Juno AI Smart Light Color Recessed JBL Speaker

This is not primarily a speaker but a light. However, it has a speaker and a customizable light which qualifies this product for this list.

The Juno AI Smart Light Color Recessed JBL Speaker is mounted and has to be wired to supply power. The light has a JBL speaker, which can be controlled via smart devices and smart home devices. The speaker does not have a color show, but the light has adjustable color temperature that can be made cold or hot depending on your preferences.

The light has total output intensity of 1000 lumen, but this can be dimmed to even 10 lumens remotely. The socket adapter required to mount the speaker is included. (3)
  • Connectivity: Wi-Fi, Bluetooth
  • Speaker Type: Premium JBL
  • Compatibility: Alexa Built-in
  • Turntable Color Temperature
  • JBL speaker
  • WiFi-enabled
  • 1000 lumen
  • Smart Home Compatible
  • Wired
  • Does not offer a light show

Unlike the other entries on this list, the Juno AI Smart Light Color Recessed JBL Speaker has a built-in Amazon Alexa module which makes it compatible with all devices advertised to be compatible with Alexa. This allows you to integrate the speaker with other smart devices without a hub and unlocks tons of smart features that you won’t get with other speakers. For example, if you have a smart lock for your bathroom door, you can program the speaker to turn on and start playing light jazz as soon as you enter the bathroom. You can also use the speaker-lock integration the other way and lock or unlock the bathroom door remotely via voice commands while in the shower.

Best 360 Subwoofer Sound

Wireless Speaker with Built-in-Mic

6. Motast IP7 Shower Speaker

The Motast IP7 Shower Speaker is a really impressive speaker for its size. The speaker offers stereo sound with bass, and you can even pair two speakers for true L-R stereo sound.

The speaker is water-resistant, dust-resistant, and shock-resistant. It’s compatible with smartphones, and you remotely choose from seven color themes. The mounted buttons also make it quite easy to use.

The Motast IP7 Shower Speaker can be attached to a wall using a suction cup or placed on a flat surface. The speaker has a woofer at the front, but it produces sound from the round surface as well. This results in the sound bouncing off of walls and adds a feeling of depth to the sound such that it does not feel like it’s coming from such a tiny speaker.

This might not seem like that impressive a feature, but you just have to experience it to know what we mean. You might have noticed that smaller speakers produce a slightly different sound—the sound feels like it’s high-pitched. This is because smaller speakers are not able to produce a high enough amplitude of lower frequency sound waves.
  • Connectivity: Bluetooth
  • Speaker Type: With Built-in Mic
  • Battery Life: 2 years
  • Hi-Fi stereo sound
  • Can be paired with another unit of the same model
  • Water-resistant, dust resistant, shock resistant
  • Built-in subwoofer
  • Sound quality may decline if the phone is not closeby

Using a small speaker is like passing sound through a high-pass sound filter. However, this speaker has dedicated subwoofers that produce low-frequency sound at higher amplitudes, allowing the speaker to even surpass the sound quality of much larger speakers.

Conclusion

As you can see, Bluetooth shower speakers come in all shapes and sizes and have variable specs and features. All these Bluetooth speakers are carefully selected for slightly different preferences. Whichever one you buy, you can count on it being the best in its subcategory.
