One of the greatest pleasures in life is taking a good shower with hot water – or if it is in summer, freshwater. The levels of pleasure, however, increase even more if the aforementioned shower is accompanied by the reproduction of good music, so that you can sing loudly, in “duet” mode with your favorite artists, the songs that you like the most.
I must admit that, until not long ago, I would put my iPhone in the bathroom and leave it playing the songs that I wanted. As an emergency solution, this is not bad at all – although the integrity of the phone is compromised – but then I discovered an infinitely better alternative: the shower speakers, completely waterproof, more powerful than those integrated into the phone itself and … you can put them right next to you and control the playback and volume as you like during the shower itself!

Tips for buying the best shower speaker
Whichever waterproof Bluetooth speaker the user chooses, the battery should be checked first. The device becomes useless when it is not efficient in terms of its battery capacity.
The second criterion is the size and weight of the enclosure. The compact models are less bulky and above all light. They slip easily into the pants pocket or into handbags. However, there are some that their sound may not be as sharp and powerful as that of a larger Bluetooth speaker. This feature is highly recommended for listening outdoors.
The third criterion concerns its protection index. Since the enclosure is waterproof, it is vitally important. Some models resist everything: dust, liquids, water splashes, etc. These devices comply with the IPX7 standard. This is what it takes to have a speaker that can survive all external aggression’s.
Faced with the multitude of waterproof Bluetooth speakers on sale currently on the market, some features can make the difference. Among them, we can cite as an example the light effects, the charging port for tablet or smart phone, the dedicated application, the control buttons, the voice assistant, etc.
