Overall, the JBL Charge 4 enjoys all the positives of its predecessors, with one notable addition. It has an upgraded version of “JBL Connect” that allows you to connect up to 100 JBL speakers and play one song simultaneously. The speaker is conveniently lightweight and comes in ten amazing colors for you to choose from.
1.Ultimate Ears Wonderboom 2
The Wonderboom speaker series from Ultimate Ears has remained a favorite choice for music enthusiasts who want to keep their preferred playlist close whenever they are conducting their day-to-day cleaning routines. The first Wonderboom boasts an IPX7 waterproof rating, which allows it to function effortlessly under the shower.
The Wonderboom 2 comes with various upgrades, including an IP67 rating for waterproofness, in addition to protection from dust. This makes it the perfect speaker for outdoor showers. An outdoor boost button on the speaker enhances the bass and acoustics when you have to play your music outside.
The speaker is also Bluetooth-enabled and can connect to devices at a distance of up to 300 feet away. With 13 hours of battery, you’ll have numerous shower sessions filled with fun before you have to plug in the speaker.

2.Polk Audio Boom Swimmer Duo
Polk Audio’s Boom Swimmer Duo is a high-quality shower speaker that boasts an IPX7 rating, which means it will continue functioning uninterruptedly even under the highest shower water pressure. The Swimmer Duo features a malleable tail that lets it wrap around any solid object.
This gives you an easy time when you want to install it temporarily inside the shower. There is also a suction cup that allows you to stick it to the wall with no worry of it falling off. Overall, you get multiple mounting options that enhance the practicality of the speaker.
Another exciting feature on this device is the built-in microphone that enables you to answer incoming calls right from the shower. As if that’s not enough, you get to enjoy dirtproof, as well as shockproof ratings, which makes for a durable and high-performance speaker.
Add to this resistance to water drops and you end up with a functionality that is not easily rivaled in the shower speaker market!
3.iFox iFox12 Bluetooth Speaker
Don’t be fooled by the minute 3.4-inch frame of the iFox12, this circular shower speaker delivers a strong and audible audio performance in any environment you choose to play your music. Whether you’re in the shower or inside a hot tub, the speaker will provide you with the sound quality you desire.
What the iFox12 lacks in size, it makes up for in durability. The speaker boasts a 100% waterproof certification, with full submersion to 3 feet, in addition to FCC, CE, and ROHS certifications. All this top quality is backed by a one-year warranty to ensure that your investment will never go to waste.
When it comes to usability, this shower speaker is pretty user-friendly. With easy to read and super-responsive buttons, you won’t fidget when you want to tweak the setting of the speaker. A large suction cup at the rear end of the iFox12 makes for easy mounting on the wall.
The suction cup is pretty effective and allows the speaker to stay in place all the while. This speaker also features Bluetooth compatibility with fast connection to compatible devices that are as far as 33 feet away.
Aside from jamming to your favorite music inside the shower, you can also answer incoming calls thanks to its speakerphone capabilities. Lastly, you get up to 10 hours of uninterrupted music fun with the iFox12, which will require a paltry 3 hours to fully recharge!
The last shower speaker on our list is the AYL Soundfit, which although affordable, is by no means a pushover! This portable outdoor speaker will deliver spectacularly inside your shower the same way it does on outside trails. Despite its modest size, you’ll be surprised by the deep and bold audio performance that it offers.
It’s 12-hour battery life cycle is also impressive but not as impressive as the Bluetooth 5.0 compatibility, which is actually quite novel to affordable portable speakers. This allows for quick and seamless pairing with devices, something you’ll appreciate if you are sharing the speaker with family.
The Bluetooth connectivity range spreads to a distance of 33 feet, which is also pretty remarkable. One underwhelming feature on the AYL Soundfit is the IPX5 rating, which only allows for resistance to splashes; not actual submersion. So, take care not to get too distracted by the sweet tunes you’re listening to and put your prized possession in harm’s way.
Instead of the suction cup we’ve discussed in the previous models, the AYL uses a strap, which will need you to improvise when mounting it inside the shower. With that said, the speaker will sit easily on a shelf, or you can choose to strap it to the showerhead.
With the above high-quality speakers, you’ll be spending more than the eight minutes that an average person spends in the shower. They are among the best shower speakers you can get your hands on. So, if you’re looking to embellish your showers with a karaoke session, these are just what you need to be installed!
