Shower Speaker Buyer’s Guide
The first thing you want to know is just how long your speaker is going to last. If you’re the type of person to take a long shower you don’t want to lose your music right in the middle of that shower. Instead, you want to make sure you’re going to have plenty of power for an extended period of time. That’s going to ensure you can listen to your music as much as you want and for as long as you want. Plus you don’t have to worry about shortening your shower because the music ran out or getting something with a plug (which is dangerous anyway).
Size and Weight
The next thing you want to think about is the size and overall weight of your speaker. With the advent of new technology you don’t need something large just to get the power that you want. Smaller speakers can have just as much power (if not more) than some of the larger speakers you’ll find. So you want something that is going to be small but still provide good quality and enough sound that you can easily hear it. After all, you’re going to have water running so it’s not going to be completely quiet around you.
We already started to discuss this but it’s something that needs a little bit more attention as well. You want to make sure that your speaker is going to put out enough sound while you’re using it. You don’t want to have a tool that just can’t be heard over the sound of the shower because that’s not going to be worth it to you in the long run. The best thing you can do is try out different speakers before you buy them to get a good idea of how much power they have and how well the sound will carry through water.
You want to make sure that the speaker you choose is going to have easy to use controls as well. After all, you don’t necessarily want to listen to every song that comes on and you might want to turn up or down certain songs as well. So what do you do? Well you’re going to need a speaker that lets you control all of those things easily, since you definitely don’t want to be reaching for your phone or other device while you’re in the shower to change them directly.
Overall, there are a number of things you want to look at when you’re choosing a good quality speaker for in the shower. You definitely want to make sure you get something that’s built for the shower first, and not even something that is just waterproof as this doesn’t necessarily mean it’s good for extended periods under water. Once you’ve found that you’ll be ready to start looking at features that are important to you so you can get a great showering experience with your favorite songs.
