So do podcasts, books on tape, and radio broadcasts. Because showering is nice, but showering with some tunes is amazing.
While we can’t do anything to help your shower voice, we can recommend a good vehicle for your background music.
When you are selecting the perfect bathroom speaker, there are a lot of factors to consider. Should its power source be self-contained or should it plug into a wall outlet? Does it need a clock?
Does it need to be in the shower or just near the shower? Does it need to be mounted on the wall or can it sit on a ledge?
Should your bathroom speaker be able to connect to your phone? Should that connection be a docking station, Bluetooth or an auxiliary cable? Should you be able to use your virtual assistant with it? Should you be able to answer calls through it?
How big should it be? What color should it be? How durable should it be?
Like we said, there are a lot of factors to consider. To help you pick the bathroom speaker that is right for you, we have outlined the pros and cons from some of our top picks.
