iFox Bluetooth Shower Speaker

If you are searching for a shower radio that is going to be able to withstand being splashed a lot, and also mounts easily to the wall, you have come to the right place.

This model is certainly one to go for, so take the time to read the reviews below and see what you make of it.

The Good 

This shower radio comes in black and has a compact design that ensures a minimalist look when it is mounted in your shower. 

It is also entirely waterproof, even if it ends up getting completely submerged (up to three feet), so you don’t need to worry about it getting damaged when wet. It also comes with rechargeable batteries that last for a good ten hours of play time before running low.

It has Bluetooth, which means that you can connect wirelessly to your devices in order to stream music and radio freely while you are showering, but also so that you can answer calls if needed.

The controls on the radio certainly help make this easier for you as well. It has superb sound quality and a good range of volume that is fully adjustable, so you can find the perfect level of sound. 

The Not So Good

Some customers have noted that the connection can be disrupted if the device is not in the same room as the speaker. 

Our View

Available at a fantastic and low price, this is a real bargain that you are going to want to get your hands on. While it is true that the connection can be a little crackled (or even dropped) if the device is in a separate room, this is often true with Bluetooth devices as the connection struggles to get through walls.

Otherwise, it offers excellent sound quality and connectivity, as well as the freedom to answer calls and control your music with ease. Not to mention that it is completely waterproof. 

Phillips Bathroom Radio 

Another top brand, Phillips is known for their brilliant electronics, and this bathroom radio is no different.

If you want something that combines functionality with quality, this is the one for you, so make sure you take the time to read through the reviews below to see what you make of it.

The Good 

This shower radio comes in white and has a modern design that will allow it to sit nicely on the edge of the bath, or even hang from the shower wall thanks to the strong strap that is attached to the top.

Plus, the speaker is waterproof for extra protection, and the rest of the model is splash proof, so it won’t matter if it gets a little wet while you wash. It is also battery-powered for your ease of use.

The clear LCD display shows you all of the key information, including the time and a battery indicator, and you even have the option to set an alarm to make sure you don’t spend too much time washing.

You can easily access FM radio stations using the controls on the top of the device, and there is the option to control the volume. The sound quality is also very clear and precise. 

The Not So Good

A number of customers have stated that you cannot see the time when the radio is playing, as it replaces it with the current station. 

Our View

A good model on a budget, this radio may not have fancy features like Bluetooth, but it does have the necessities for you to really enjoy your shower.

While not being able to see the time when the radio is playing can be very frustrating, the fact that you can set a timer really helps overcome this issue as you won’t spend too long in there.

Plus, the sound quality is really good, with a crisp output while listening to the radio. It’s a great piece of kit to invest in if you want something simple and functional. 


Buyer's Guide

How to Choose a Shower Radio

When it comes to picking the best DAB shower radio, or the best FM one, most of it is down to what you like personally.

There are quite a few different models available on the market, and so here are a few of my own tips for choosing the best of the bunch so that you can find your ideal radio.

The first thing you need to decide is if you want a DAB or FM radio. DAB allows you to access digital stations, giving you access to thousands more than FM, and you can even listen to stations from overseas.

However, if you aren’t too bothered about a wide range of stations and your favourites are on an FM frequency, then it’s best that you just stick with the classic FM radio.

A shower radio should be waterproof, or at least resistant, as much of the time they are sitting in the shower with you while you wash.

They are bound to get splashed, or even fall off at some point, and so the better they are with water submersion the better it is for you. If they are not wall mounted, they should at least come with a strong suction cup or handle to help prevent any falls onto the shower floor.

If you are the kind of person that has rushed mornings, some shower radios come with alarms to help you stay on track and make sure you are keeping good time.

Most will also have a time display, so you can keep checking the clock and make sure you aren’t taking too long. A good battery life can also be handy for those that like longer showers with their favourite tunes.

One of the main extra features you should keep in mind is Bluetooth capabilities. If you want to listen to your own tunes instead of the radio, then Bluetooth connectivity can be incredibly helpful.

Some even have hands free calling, so if you need to take an important call in the shower, there is nothing in your way. It’s exceptionally handy.

Keep these tips in mind when you go to choose your own shower radio.

Things to Look for

When you are choosing your shower radio, you need to look out for a couple of things, one of which is that a large price tag does not always mean great quality.

You should always research the models you want to buy and look at online reviews for guidance. They can be really helpful when it comes to determining which products to buy and which to stay away from.

Make sure the shower radio you are buying is right for what you need. If you want something that just plays the radio and sits nicely in your shower, then you won’t need something with all the cool additional features like Bluetooth and hands free calling.

If you want something you can use in more than just the bathroom, models that are designed for use while camping and fishing would be more suited to you as they come with torches and alarms built in.

When you go to buy a bathroom radio, look for something that is good quality. Go for the trusted brands that you know are reliable and come with warranties in case of malfunction.

Often, the big brands are a little more expensive but at least you know what you are getting. Plus, they tend to have more reviews for your reference than less well-known names.

To Conclude

The best shower radio has to be the DLAND Bluetooth shower speaker. It has everything you could want and need built in with easy to access controls.

The powerful suction cup keeps it stuck to the wall with no issues, and the fact that you can accept phone calls on it can make life a little easier for those who find themselves with no time in the morning.

It has a simple design with a lot of power and functionality, all at a very low and reasonable price. With rave reviews and excellent reliability, it’s the number one shower radio to go for.
