One of the best places to hit those high notes, the shower stall offers excellent acoustics–for novices and divas alike. Now you can rock out like the splashy sensation that you are with help from the Kohler Moxie Showerhead + Wireless Speaker, a sharp looking showerhead with a Bluetooth speaker attachment that makes it rain music.
Designed by industry-leader Kohler, the Moxie is a real game changer, combining the delivery of water and music, simultaneously soaking you with music and a best-in-class shower experience.
So how does it work? Kohler’s Moxie Showerhead features an integrated Bluetooth speaker capsule that’s removable, rechargeable and wireless. Moxie pairs with any of your Bluetooth-enabled devices, like your smartphone, MP3 player, etc, allowing you to stream your favorite jams or station directly into the shower.
The showerhead has 60 angled nozzles that deliver full-spray coverage, an easy-to-clean silicone sprayface that makes it easy to wipe away mineral buildup, and a sleek exterior that compliments any bathroom. The wireless speaker has a rechargeable lithium-ion battery that provides up to seven hours of play, an LED light letting you know the status of the unit (pairing, battery low, etc), and a single button to power on/off the unit.
But the fun doesn’t have to stop once the shower ends. Simply remove the speaker pod from the Moxie (it’s held in place magnetically) and take it with you. Dance your way from the bathroom to the bedroom to the kitchen table for toast and coffee before you head out the door.
Yesterday morning, I put Eye of the Tiger on repeat while I was getting ready, and it really helped me push through those Monday blahs. Much like Rocky, I felt like I could knock down anything that came my way!
There’s a lot to like about the Moxie. It looks much nicer than a clunky water-resistant Bluetooth speaker you might bring into the shower with you. The showerhead delivers nice water pressure (available in 2.0 gpm or a 2.5 gpm spray) and good coverage, which isn’t surprising considering it’s a Kohler. The sound quality is very good, and it had no problem competing with the water noise in the shower.
That said, there are a few shortcomings that are worth mentioning. Since there are no buttons on the Moxie, there’s no way to adjust the volume or skip a song. That’s the compromise made in exchange for a sleeker, more minimalistic look. In addition, the Bluetooth range of the Moxie is roughly 30 feet, while other devices we’ve tested have a range many times that. And lastly, you can’t answer the phone if a call comes through, as the Moxie doesn’t have a microphone.
Don’t get me wrong though, none of these issues are deal breakers for me, but rather features I’d love to see Kohler add to their next generation Moxie. Overall, I was really impressed with the Moxie, and just a few short days into it, I can’t imagine showering without it!
The Kohler Moxie Showerhead + Wireless Speaker retails for $199, but you can get one MUCH cheaper on Amazon.com. And for the price they’re selling for on there, it’s a total no-brainer. Happy showering!
