We love technology in this house and one of the things we have yet to buy is a good sound system for the bathroom which is one of the places we enjoy listening to music. Whether it be soaking with our feet up in the tub or grabbing a quick shower before we start the day, there’s always a reason for music in our house! We were recently contacted to see if we would like to test out some shower speakers and since they are similar to what we were after, we decided to give them a go!
We have previously worked with SoundPEATS on their headphones and we do like some of the products they currently offer. SoundPEATS is a professional design and production company founded in 2010 that mainly produce acoustic products such as earphones and speaker sound boxes. The shower speaker’s main features are that it is portable, waterproof and wireless. The speakers connect to your device easily via Bluetooth and even on the first go, connect very quickly and easily. My device was picked up straight away and we were good to go! With a 10 metre wireless range and 4 hours of playback time, you can take the speakers wherever you need them to be, not necessarily in the shower! The speakers are splash proof and with no wires or cables it’s absolutely perfect for popping onto your bathroom tiles using the suction cup and listening to your favourite tracks!
The speakers themselves are really easy to operate. There are 3 main buttons; a long press of the – button or + button increases or decreases the volume and a short press of either button plays the previous or next track. Then a long press of the power button switches the speakers on and a short press plays or pauses the track. The speakers flash blue when a track is playing which is an interesting feature and if you get a call whilst your music is playing, the speakers inform you and using the inbuilt microphone, you can carry on with your call which is handy if your soaking in the bath and don’t want any phone disasters! The speakers are easy to charge up with the USB cable supplied and will last for 4 hours from a single charge. The current price of the SoundPEATS shower speaker is £17.99 which is more than good value for them. The downside to the SoundPEATS shower speakers for us was that you can only connect to 1 device at a time, which when you have a few devices in the house becomes a bit frustrating as the previous user has to ‘forget’ the speaker in order for the next device to connect to the speakers. Saying that, we will be using the shower speakers in our house as they are great for listening to our music in the bathroom!
