Shower Heads With Speakers and Lights – Combining Music and Color Therapy in the Shower

Dreamspa showerhead with lightsFor many people taking a shower at the end of the day is the ultimate way to wind down and relax. With technology there are now other things you can introduce into your shower to make it an even better experience. Shower radios have been around a while but with Bluetooth technology you can stream your music from your device straight to your bathroom. And with increasing interest in chromatherapy, or color therapy, you can now also use lights to lighten the mood while showering. In this article we look at some of your options for introducing music and mood lights into your shower using shower heads, shower speakers or a combination of both.

Unfortunately it is actually quite hard to find shower heads that do both speakers and LED lights at the same time. They usually do one or the other. In fact we could only find one shower head that does both, the ThermaSol Rainhead, but it is very expensive – more about that later.

Unless you want to spend thousands of dollars on installing an expensive Thermasol system these are they ways you can combine music and lighting in the shower:

  1. Use shower speakers that have LED lights
  2. Use a combination of shower heads/speakers/lights to combine music and lighting properly

Shower speakers with LED lights

There are actually some shower speakers that have LED lights built in. These would actually provide both the speaker functionality and the lights, although the lights may not be as powerful as some of the other options.

Speakers: Yes
LED lights: Yes

These are some good options for shower speakers with LED lights:

It has a 5W speaker and subwoofer so it is one of the better sounding shower speakers out there. It has LED mood lights so you can shower with the bathroom lights off.

BassPal Bluetooth Speaker

For those looking for something that blends high quality sound, with rich, full bass, with waterproof design, the BassPal is an excellent choice. For a high end system that features mood lights and super bass, it is an excellent value at less than $35.

The speaker system features:

  • fully waterproof and able to stand hours of being submerged in water
  • easy connectivity
  • up to 8 hours of battery life

People who purchase this model love the rich, full bass and stereo quality sound, as well as those little extra such as mood lights and included accessories. It features built in buttons and other technology that allow you to take calls and control your sound system from the speaker itself.

Cowin Swimmer Waterproof Speaker

This bluetooth speaker is not only great for the shower but as it also floats it’s also great for outdoor use, or at the pool. It has great sound – 10W drivers and 3 passive radiators to provide full-spectrum audio. It is IPX7 waterproof so you can drop it in the bath or in a pool and it’s fine (up to 1 meter that is). It supports Bluetooth 4.0  so has ultra-optimised wireless connection. Finally it has some cool LED lights with 5 color modes.

Pros:

  • Great sound with 10W
  • Ability to float so no problem using it in a bath or at the pool
  • Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity up to 30 ft
  • 8 hours of playtime

 

 

Shower heads with LED lights

These shower heads omit colored LED lights, depending on the temperature. The power is generated by the running of the water, so no batteries or wiring needed. These don’t have speakers so you would have to combine this with shower speakers. For a more extensive list of shower heads with LED lights you can visit our Shower Heads That Light up and Change Colors post.

Speakers: No
LED lights: Yes

 

Shower head speakers

Bluetooth-enabled shower head speakers can be synced to your phone, tablet, laptop, or other device. The speaker even pops out of the shower head, allowing you to use it as a wireless speaker in other applications as well. The most popular and high quality model is the Kohler Moxie Shower head and Speaker. Since these only fulfil your speakers needs, you would need to combine this with LED lights, maybe something like dimmable colored ceiling downlight lamps.

Speakers: Yes
LED Lights: No

ThermaSol Rainhead

For the ultra high end experience, the Rainhead shower head by ThermaSol is the ultimate in luxury. These are expensive and sophisticated shower heads that require installation and are not the kind of shower head that can just be added to an existing fixture connector.

It features a wide range of different water pressure and configuration settings. It also features enhanced chromotherapy. Additionally, it features a wall unit that allows you to easily control every aspect of your shower, including piping in your favorite music. It features a Bluetooth enabled interface, or you can use one of the two RCA audio inputs.

Speakers: Yes
LED Lights: Yes

These go for over $3000 and require a lot of installation!

Summary

As you can see combining speaker and mood lights into your shower or bathroom is not that straightforward. There isn’t one product that does it all perfectly (except the pricey ThermaSol Rainhead), so you may want to combine two different products to do this. Good luck and I hope you find the right combination that works for you!
