10 Best Shower Radios

We’re all guilty of blasting music in the shower and singing our hearts out to our favorite tunes. And the best way to do this is by using shower radios.

Most of the time, we’re using our phones and turning them up to the loudest volume in hopes that we can hear them over the shower. But not every phone has stellar sound quality. Nor are they waterproof. That’s when shower radios come in.

Armed with waterproof or splashproof design, great speaker systems, and more often than not, radios, these shower radios are great if you’re looking to relax in the bathtub by listening to calming music or rock out in the shower.

To help you choose your favorite one, here are 10 of the best shower radios you should buy.

The Sony shower radio is another that makes it on the list. It’s got great build quality, it’s easy to use and to set up, and the acoustics are impressive. It’s battery-powered. It might not be rechargeable but these batteries last really long.

Be wary though. Sellers sometimes give you the European version with only 5 FM and AM presets instead of the US version with 10 FM and AM presets. And make sure not to dunk the entire radio and submerge it into the water because this radio is only splash-proof.

  • Only splash-proof
  • Great battery life

CONS:

  • Sometimes, sellers give you the European version with only 5 FM and AM presets unlike the US version with 10 FM and AM presets

3. Sangean H205 Shower Radio

SPECIFICATIONS:

Power Source: Battery-powered

Waterproof: Yes

FM Radio: Includes this

Dimensions: 7.9 x 3.2 x 4.4 in

Weight: 2 lbs

Easy to operate and to set up? Check. Long-lasting battery life? Check. Add the solid build quality, the loud volume, and the strap that allows you to hang the product and you’ve got yourself an awesome radio if you don’t mind the price that is. This radio is battery-powered, waterproof, includes an FM radio but it’s pricy and bulky.

If you’re looking for a radio that’s not as heavy, this might not be for you. Check out the other radios on the list. They’ve got the same great quality as this one and they come in a smaller size. If you don’t mind the size, then we assure you that this is a great fit for you and the money you spend will be worth it.

PROS:

  • Can be hung using the hanging strap it comes with
  • Solid build quality
  • Easy to operate

SPECIFICATIONS:

Power Source: Battery-powered

Waterproof: Yes

FM Radio: Includes this

Dimensions: 2.25 x 5.75 x 3.75 in

Weight: 2.75 oz

Unlike the 3rd radio on this list, the Pyle hanging shower radio is lightweight and easily portable. Its simplicity and swoon-worthy price is a winner to almost all customers.

The buttons aren’t hard to navigate and the radio itself is easy to use. For the price you’re getting it at, however, don’t expect phenomenal quality and volume. If you’re looking for a budget shower radio, this is a top pick.

PROS:

  • Simple and easy to use
  • Lightweight and can be hung
  • Inexpensive

CONS:

  • Mediocre volume
  • Unimpressive quality

5. BassPal IPX7 Waterproof Speaker with FM Radio

SPECIFICATIONS:

Power Source: Rechargeable with 8 hours of playtime

Waterproof: Yes

FM Radio: Includes this

Dimensions: 3.82 x 3.82 x 2.95 in

Weight: 8.4 oz

The BassPal shower radio is lightweight and easy to carry around. Plus, the price isn’t too bad either. However, we’ve already seen other radios that are lightweight, easy to carry around, and cheap. And this radio doesn’t even really have an impressive sound quality and some buttons don’t work well.

So, what makes this unique and a top radio? Enter the built-in microphone and the very impressive waterproof feature. This time, this shower radio can handle a dunk or two. And if you’ve got a call, answer it and the radio can easily detect your voice and make it clearer because of the microphone. Great, right? That’s exactly what we would describe this radio.

PROS:

  • Waterproof feature works well
  • Lightweight speaker
  • Price isn’t too bad
  • It’s got a built-in microphone

CONS:

  • Unimpressive sound quality
  • Buttons on the speaker don’t work well

6. CIYOYO 5.0 Waterproof Shower Radio

SPECIFICATIONS:

Power Source: Rechargeable with 10 hours of playtime

Waterproof: Yes

FM Radio: Includes this

Dimensions: 4.02 x 3.98 x 3.7 in

Weight: 8.1 oz

Looking for a Bluetooth shower radio? This is the perfect one for you. It’s got a great sound and great features like an attachable antenna for the built-in radio so it can pick up signals better.

If your device isn’t capable of Bluetooth, that isn’t a problem either because this radio comes with an audio jack. Just don’t use the suction cup because it doesn’t have a great design. The buttons might be confusing to use at first but, after a while, you’ll get the hang of it.

PROS:

  • Great sound
  • Includes great features like an attachable antenna for the built-in radio
  • Includes an audio jack for devices that aren’t Bluetooth

CONS:

  • Buttons are a bit confusing to use the first time
  • Suction cup doesn’t work well

7. CIYOYO Shower Radio

SPECIFICATIONS:

Power Source: Rechargeable with 10 hours of playtime

Waterproof: Yes

FM Radio: Includes this

Dimensions: 4.2 x 4.2 x 2.5 in

Weight: 12 oz

You might think this radio is the exact same as the 6th radio but it isn’t. It’s a different model. This radio’s got great battery life and is rechargeable so you don’t need to constantly buy more batteries. And it’s easy to set up.

Looking to play some music? Use the Bluetooth feature this radio has. The sound might be a bit muffled, however. And much like the 2nd shower radio, don’t submerge this into the water because it is only splash-proof.

PROS:

  • Easy to set up
  • Bluetooth feature works well and the speaker pairs with your device easily
  • Great battery life

CONS:

  • Sound is a bit muffled
  • Only splash-proof despite being called waterproof. Don’t dunk this speaker into the water.

Power Source: Rechargeable with 3 to 4 hours of playtime at maximum volume

Waterproof: Yes

FM Radio: Includes this

Dimensions: 3.14 x 3.14 x 2.16 in

Weight: 3.99 oz

 If you check the price of this shower radio, it’s the complete opposite of a dealbreaker. In fact, people might rush to buy this because of the price. Yes, it is cheap and affordable but if you’re looking for a shower radio with a sturdy suction cup and long-lasting battery life, this isn’t it.

Despite those downsides, this shower radio proves just how awesome it is because of its great build quality, sound quality, and how easy it is to use the buttons and control the volume. It’s definitely a 10/10.

PROS:

  • Great build quality
  • Good sound quality
  • Easy volume adjustment
  • Buttons work well

CONS:

  • Mediocre suction cup
  • Battery life doesn’t last long

9. HB Shower Radio Portable Bluetooth Speaker

SPECIFICATIONS:

Power Source: Rechargeable with at least 6 hours of playing time

FM Radio: Does not include this

Dimensions: 3.54 x 3.54 x 2.56 in

Weight: 6.6 oz

Looking for an outdoor radio that you can use in the shower as well? This is a great pick. It can withstand harsh weather and it’s got great sound quality. The price seals the deal. With its sleek and modern design, this speaker is great either indoors or outdoors.

However, the radio doesn’t pick up signals very well and it is only water-resistant so it cannot submerge into the water. Yet, for this product, the pros outweigh the cons. So it still is worth your money.

PROS:

  • Looks sleek and modern
  • Affordable and great value for the price
  • Great sound quality
  • Great for outdoor use

CONS:

  • The radio feature isn’t that good
  • Suction cup isn’t great
  • Only water-resistant. You cannot submerge this into the water despite it being called waterproof.

10. ASIYUN Shower Radio

SPECIFICATIONS:

Power Source: Battery-powered

Waterproof: Yes

FM Radio: Includes this

Much like the 9th radio, this shower radio doesn’t have a great radio that can easily pick up signals nor does it have an impressive suction cup. But it redeems itself because of the very useful Bluetooth function that works very well, excellent volume levels, and long battery life.

PROS:

  • Small, lightweight, and easy to bring around
  • Great Bluetooth function
  • Excellent volume levels with great sound
  • Great battery life
  • Easy to connect through Bluetooth

CONS:

  • Suction cup’s design isn’t great
