The Ultimate Ears Wonderboom is the best shower speaker you can lay your hands on in 2019.

The Wonderboom features a 10-hour battery life and comes with an IPX7 rating which means it can stay submerged in water for 30 minutes. We tested the Bluetooth range and found it remained connected even when we moved 100 feet away from the source.
Don’t worry about this device dropping and shattering from a height. Our drop test from 1.8 meters showed the device could withstand fall pretty well.

Boom Swimmer Duo – Best for Bluetooth Coverage
The Boom Swimmer Duo is an impressive speaker that’ll bring life to your shower experience. The stylish build makes it truly attractive. But the improved sonic Bluetooth range means it’ll stay connected to the music source about 120 feet away.

If you’re looking to saturate your shower with a booming sound, get Ultimate Ears Boom 3. This speaker lives up to its name “Boom!” with a 360-degree sound that saturates its surroundings.
But we weren’t so happy about the price. We found it somewhat expensive.
This Bluetooth speaker comes with 15-hour battery life and is waterproof for a 30 minute-long submersion. In terms of durability, this device is coated with a rubber skin which allows it to endure all the splashes it’ll receive in the shower. And for eventual falls.

Braven Mira – Shower Speaker with Real Boom
The Braven Mira weighs two pounds and looks quite lightweight. What the build doesn’t reveal at face value is the immense quality packed into this loud device.
We’ll go straight to the point and tell you it’s worth the money. It’s one of those devices that can spice up your shower-time and make you linger in that room a little longer than necessary. We can say this because we didn’t review a smaller device that could produce as much boom from its speakers.
The device has a hinged hook at the rear that lets you hang it on your shower head while enjoying your bath.
It comes with an IPX5 which means it survive a few splashes of water but could become defective if submerged.
