Bringing a smartphone or tablet into the bathroom has become commonplace for those who want to listen to their tunes while in the shower. But before you follow suit, consider this. It’s said that a majority of mobile phone failures are due to accidental damage, with the leading cause being water damage.
Enter the iShower2. With the iShower2’s 200-foot Bluetooth range, your phone or tablet stays safe and dry, while still giving you control to Play, Pause, Skip tracks, and even answer or ignore phone calls. That’s right, now you can participate in that boring morning conference call while you enjoy a nice soak in the tub.
We recently had a chance to try out the iShower2, and it’s really an impressive product. While it’s not the first water-resistant Bluetooth speaker on the market, there are a number of things that help set it apart from the pack (along with it’s predecessor). The iShower2 features new speakerphone functionality, extended battery life and improved sound quality.
Like I said, with the addition of a speakerphone, you never have to worry about missing another phone call again. This is huge for me, because I’m constantly missing calls when I’m in the shower, and I come out to see that dreaded “Missed Call” notification. On the flip side, it’d be nice if the iShower2 displayed the number of the person calling. Additionally, callers on the other end might notice some echo or water sounds on their end.. But what do you expect, you’re in a shower after all!
The iShower2 is powered by 3 AA batteries, which are good for 25 hours of battery life. Frankly, I was a little surprised by this, as most Bluetooth speakers are rechargeable these days. But considering that you’ll only use the speaker for 10-minutes a day, you shouldn’t have to change the batteries that often at all.
Sound quality is another area where the iShower2 really impressed us. When I first turned it on, I turned the volume up to 10 (it’s max) and the music was still rather low. But after thinking about it for a minute, I went and raised the volume on my iPhone. All of a sudden, the iShower2 came to life! Considering the small size of this device, I was really impressed with the amount of volume and bass this put out!
There’s a lot to like about the iShower2. The Bluetooth water-resistant speaker lets you listen to music, audio books, podcasts, sports and more without the fear of water damage! The iShower2 features a 200 foot range, speakerphone capability, 5 user profiles and a clock display (so you’ll never be late for work again).
The iShower2 retails for $99.99, and we think it’s money well spent.
