Singing in the shower is a longtime tradition of those who want to show off their vocal talents, just not in front of total strangers at the karaoke bar. It’s a sanctuary for those with a flair for the dramatic and who need their favorite tunes to get started on their day. But, instead of singing along to whatever drivel permeates the airwaves on FM or AM, you’ve got the chance to take control of your set list with the best shower speakers.
A waterproof speaker will fit as seamlessly into your bathroom as your brand new shower head, and will do just that little more to get you ready for the day. We’ve already discussed the awesome, sometimes surprising, and often overlooked benefits of cold showers for men, but a great day shouldn’t end so quickly, and with water resistant speakers you can be prepared all thanks to your favorite wake up tunes.
The Best Shower Speaker
Our top pick for the best shower speaker is the multipurpose and multifunctional AOMAIS Sport II Portable Wireless Bluetooth Speaker. With a 20W output, it’s loud enough for you to hear every beat of the drum, every high note, and every twang of the guitar as you sud yourself up in the morning, while the IPX7 ensures complete protection from splash back and any accidental drops.
It comes at a great price, and the 4.0 Bluetooth system ensures excellent reliability and wide connectivity options across a variety of devices. To save cable space in your bedroom, it also comes with 15 hours battery life, so if you only use it for your shower, you’ll probably only need to charge it once a month.
