This thing is great. At first I was hesitant of buying it but after reading reviews I took a plunge and I have never regretted it. It works surprisingly wonderful, sounds great for its money and it is no hassle to hook up to a phone,
Showertime is fun again!
February 25, 2016
Great product! Very easy install. Bluetooth speaker can be turned up quite loud, enabling you to hear it other rooms. It's mostly treble, but the sound is clean and crisp. The showerhead itself provides a very refreshing shower experience. I have not had any hot water tank trouble like some other users have noted on here, but I'm a dude, so I typically shower pretty quickly. I would definitely recommend purchasing the detla extension arm if your pipe set-up is like mine. Not sure how long the speaker lasts, but from the other reviews, it sounds like it should be awhile before I need to charge it again. I intended pun in that last sentence.
Rocking in the rain
December 30, 2015
This was purchased as a gift for my 17 year old daughter, who can't imagine taking a shower without music playing.
1) Excellent value for the price.
2) The speaker definitely provides full, rich sound at volumes that work very well over the noise of the shower.
3) Speaker is easily removed from the shower head, & my daughter prefers it to her other Bluetooth speakers so she uses it everywhere.
4) In her only test of battery life it was still pumping up the volume after 8 straight hours when she gave up at bedtime.
None really, just a few minor caveats listed below.
Please understand that a rain shower head is designed to provide vertical water flow, (straight down) so if you attach it to a standard, angled shower mount it will seem odd: Due to the angle the shower head will begin spraying from the lower third of the jets, & only as the head fills with water will the rest of the jets will come into action. This means that the volume of water will be higher in the lower half of the head than the upper, & also means that when you turn off the water it will take a few moments for the water in the head to drain from the bottom jets.
It has no female-to-male adapter to attach it to a standard handheld shower extension, & although I picked one up at the hardware store for under $2.00, any rain shower head will work best when you use an adjustable shower arm.
Overall this product does exactly what it clams, & for an excellent price. If you want music while showering, & especially if you want to take that music anywhere, I highly recommend it.

The shower head was delivered quickly and very easy to install (we did not order/use the shower head bar extender) The blue tooth capabilities have a far range and the sound is great. The rainfall shower head has nice water pressure as well. Would recommend to anyone.
WOW! WHAT AN INVIGORATING SHOWER! Bluetooth speaker is a nice bonus
December 16, 2014
This showerhead is fantastic. I don't think I've ever had such an invigorating shower in my life. I have a large showerhead that is almost like this, but this one provides far more water power. Even without the bluetooth speaker, it's a worthy purchase for just a good powerful showerhead. EPA says that showerheads should flow at a maximum of 2.5 gallons per minute (gpm). Although I have not done any measurements, by taking some amazing showers I'm guessing this showerhead flows at 5 or 10 gpm. It's something that you'll have to experience for yourself to know how it feels.
The construction of the showerhead is mostly plastic and made in China like almost everything these days. It came in a generic cardboard box with just a small white label.
The bluetooth speaker works as advertised. The sound is a bit tinny, but that is to be expected from a small speaker. The acoustics in a bathroom isn't ideal in the first place. The speaker's volume is loud enough to enjoy your music while taking a shower. The volume is controlled from your phone or audio device. The bluetooth speaker also has a phone function where you can answer calls while in the shower. It's difficult to hear each other with the water running. I suppose it's still nice to have that feature for times when you're expecting someone and they're calling you from the front door.
To charge the speaker you simply twist the speaker 1/4 turn to the left and remove it from the showerhead. Then plug it in to any USB charger with the included cable. The charger is not included, so I used the charger cube for my iPhone. It takes a few hours to charge it up. I'm not sure how long the battery will last between charges, but I've used it six times thus far and the battery is still going strong.
The bluetooth pairing is just turning it on and letting your device find it. There's no password. Keep in mind that if you have multiple devices, the bluetooth speaker will sync up with whatever is the closest device (or the strongest signal).
The user manual is just 1 page. It doesn't say much and it's all in horrible translated English.
I bought this during a Lightning deal for a good price. If I can get it for the same price again, I'd buy another one for my second bathroom.
Four Star Reviews:
It works well, just slightly inconvenient.
December 28, 2016
Only complaint is that it doesn't automatically sync up with an already-established device when you turn it on. When you press the power button you then have to go to your phone and connect there as well. Kind of inconvenient since I don't remember to turn it on until I'm already in the shower. We have another Bluetooth speaker that once you hit the power button, not only does it go ahead and connect to the nearest device but it also start playing the music you last left off (whether that was Pandora or your purchased music).Besides that, the sound quality is good and it looks nice. Has also held up well after 1.5 years.

This is a great showerhead. When I first received it I was pleasantly surprised by its size, it's a big, wide showerhead. The speaker is removeable and uses bluetooth to connect to your phone or music source. As for the sound quality, its not bad, its not good either. Volume can get loud, which is what you want when you have the shower running with the bathroom fan on. The sound comes out clean even at full volume. I have paired it with Vic Tsing Waterproof speakers with a Miccus Bluetooth Splitter, so I now have stereo surround sound in my shower! Battery life is quite long, I have charged it once since I got it a month ago. And since the speaker is removable you can use it anywhere in the house or outdoors for that matter, since its waterproof.Now for the showerhead. It has good pressure and feels great at full power. It does use a lot of water, much more than my old standard small showerhead. I run out of hot water within 4 songs (about 20 minutes). I had to used a Delta extension arm to get it flat for a true rain experience. At about 8 inches in diameter its quite large and will get you soaked fast. Obviously, the center where the speaker is placed there is no water coming down and you can notice it. But that doesn't detract from the product.Its been almost a month since I bought this and it has been a treat everytime I hit the showers after a long day. The product has a quality finish and does not feel cheap. All in all, a great product and highly recommended.
Great Performing Shower-head and Bluetooth speaker
February 4, 2016
I purchased this showerhead back on November 27, 2015 (Black Friday) and have been using the shower-head daily and am thoroughly enjoying it I installed it with the AKDY® 9.5" Brass Chrome Finish Polished Bathroom Adjustable Height Wall Mount Pipe Extension Shower Head Arm which was inexpensive. Granted, the shower pressure isn't that great but sufficient for me. There are other reviews that indicate other more expensive extension arm supports higher spray pressure, so maybe take their advice rather than mine. I must also give high marks for the Bluetooth speaker that sounds and works flawlessly with my Samsung cellphone to listen to music via the Tune-in Radio app. The speaker's fidelity is quite good for music and great for the non-music (talk show) programming. I've been using this little speaker more often outside the shower, i.e., in the garage and in the bedroom...works great as a speakerphone...sound quality is excellent per the caller on the opposite side of the phone conversation. It's been a little over 2 months without any problem. I highly recommend this product...Thinking about purchasing another for my second bathroom shower but with the higher flow extension arm. Stay tuned for the results on whether the shower exit pressure is higher.

I received this showerhead less than a day after I ordered it. Yay! My husband finally installed it yesterday. It took him no time to do so, using no extension pipe, and the height is just fine. I am clueless when it comes to electronics, but once he showed me how to get music on my tablet I found it easy to do on my own. Last night we used it for the first time and I didn't want to get out of the shower! We should have changed our original showerhead years ago, cause this one feels fantastic. The music was nice and clear, clearer than from a different showerhead speaker we used at a very expensive B&B. The only minor gripe (and hence 4 stars instead of 5) is that there is no volume control on the speaker, so you'd have to be to set the proper volume on whatever device you are using before stepping into the shower. All in all, I'd buy another one for my son's bathroom (if I can catch it on deep sale again!).
Overall a solid gadget
November 11, 2015
This is close to a 5 star product to me. I have a couple of minor issues:1) The shower head is large and heavy (for a shower head), but the joint isn't super stiff. If you tilt it at an extreme angle, it will stay there, but you have to let it sit for a moment before you let go. No biggie yet, but I fear it may wear down over time and only sit at an angle that gravity allows.2) There is no volume control on the speaker. Luckily, my Galaxy S5 allows me overclock the volume because sometimes podcast-quality audio loses out to the white noise of a shower.3) The charging cable is proprietary like it's an early 2000's cell phone.I like everything else! It's a great shower head and I would like it without the speaker. I haven't tried taking a call from the shower, and likely will not, but I like the functionality of the speaker and play/pause control overall. It is also easy to deal with pairing multiple devices to it.-----A couple updates after a month of use:1) The battery lasts a long time. I use this thing nearly every day and had my first charge just a few days ago. So I would guess I got a good 12 hours of playback from it.2) This is not a water-saving shower head. It feels great but just sucks hot water through the pipes like it's been lost in the desert for weeks.
A fun shower device.
April 14, 2015
Not a bad product.Good - Works well, sound is good, and the shower head is nice and large.Bad - Water flow is quite large and we have trouble with 2 showers back to back without running out of hot water with a 40 Gal tank. I have turned up the temp of the heater to remedy.I paired my iPhone with the speaker and it worked fine. My wife then paired hers with it the next and it worked good. When I tried mine again it wouldn't connect with the speaker. I have a feeling that it only allows pairing with one phone. I will need to work with it again later.Glad I got it at a very good sale price as anything over $40 is not worth it, at the end of the day it is a basic shower head and small Bluetooth speaker.

We weren't equipped
February 25, 2017
We used this for a while and the first impression was great. We ended up continuing to use the speaker as it was good quality, but removed the shower head. It uses so much water that after 5 minutes, it drains the water heater and there's no more hot water. Unless you have a huge water heater, this isn't a good choice.

December 18, 2016
There are 5 of us and each have our own phones. When we would go to to take a shower we had to find the last person to use it and have them shut their bluetooth off in order for it to work with our phone. Then, the second issue is don't expect your hot water to last long. This shower head is HUGE. Three of us used to be able to take a shower before letting or tank reheat. And even then we didn't have to wait that long. With this thing, you run out of hot water before the first person is out. So beware. As far as the product it works great. The sound is good and sincs with no issue as long as you are using one phone. The water pressure isn't forceful but its not show either.
December 16, 2016
It's a little tricky connecting your Bluetooth to it as the instructions are not clear (hint: it requires using the first 2 buttons). Once connected, it does as it advertises and plays music while you shower. Unfortunately the max volume is not very high - more of a "background noise" level. I also tried a few phone calls and that's where it is seriously lacking. Again, with the volume being low, you can't hear the caller...and they can pretty much just hear the water. That really didn't matter to me because I don't need to have a phone in my shower. I was more interested in the music. The shower head itself works well but is not solid. It's a very lightweight piece of plastic that I could see cracking rather easily if dropped a time or two. Hopefully a family member will enjoy this because I've decided to pack it back up and give it to them for Christmas!
Great for large hot water heaters does not come with water saver. You will be taking cold shower if small hot water tank
January 26, 2016
Does not come with water saver I only have a 30 gallon hot water tank so I run out of hot water using this. This is the only reason for the 3 star. If I had a larger hot water tank and did not need the water saver then I would like it much more. The blue tooth sound is great with music have not spoke on phone while in shower yet though and who does really ? I took the water saver out of old shower head and put in this one and has been ok all though still the hot water does not last as long as the other shower head :(
It would be great but it goes through the hot water
December 6, 2015
It would be great but it goes through the hot water. If your like me and want to listen to some music while you shower this gives you 3 songs--- and no more hot water. It is great for that time--- but would be so much better if it had 2 streams instead of 4 going all around. To much to soon. They only 2 ways to fix 1.) Less output 2.) Bigger water heater.....I'll op for the shower head replacement. The speaker is no big deal, kind of like the old radio speakers, hollow sound and low.

Stopped charging after a few months. No response from company.
August 1, 2016
Liked it, while it worked. A few months after purchasing, the battery stopped charging (only ever used the included charger). When I plug it in to charge, the indicator light turns red and stays that way. Now no longer have bluetooth speaker, just a rather nice shower head. I both called, and emailed, H2oVibe on several occasions, but never got a response from them. I wish I could recommend this device, and maybe I just got a dud, but with the lack of support and accountability, I would recommend going with one of the other manufacturers.
Broken Part Washed Away My Enthusiasm
February 24, 2016
I really wanted to rate this higher, because it's very cool and the shower head puts out a nice flow of water as well as great music. But it broke.
A plastic (why always plastic!) ring that holds the shower head at the correct position, broke. Amazingly, there's four recessed tabs around the ring, which decrease the diameter of the plastic. Guess where it broke? One one of those recessed positions.
Now the head won't hold its angle and flops down. Only good for those about 4 feet tall or less.
I'm going to see if I can find a replacement or disassemble and super-glue the piece back together.
Meh. Major water waster, average speaker sound
February 2, 2016
I ended up returning this. The speakers sound marginal and the water flow is pretty weak. There's a huge gap of water coverage in the center of the flow due to the speaker. It uses tons of water- our bill was noticeably higher and I would consistently run out of hot water toward the end of my shower. For $40 I could get better shower heads so I returned it.
The speaker inside it does not sound good at all and does not get very loud
January 5, 2016
Water pressure from this new showerhead suffered in comparison to the extremely old, dried out, busted showerhead it replaced somehow. The speaker inside it does not sound good at all and does not get very loud. In a small, tile shower, the sound of the rain style water dispersant overpowers the volume of the subpar speaker. When boosted all the way, distortion is present and much of the audio spectrum is lost. So if you like dribbling rain showers with lots of quiet, distorted mid to high frequencies, this is the showerhead for you. On the plus side, it does what it says it does. Water comes out of it and it plays music. It just doesn't do either very well.
BE CAREFUL !!! I was sent a broken shower head
December 4, 2015
I bought this shower head as a gift for my boyfriend. He loved it and says the volume gets pretty loud. Also said that the shower pressure wasn't bad. It took me seconds to install but I noticed that for some odd reason the shower head wouldn't stay in any position but down. Its so loose around the rotating ball. I thought maybe they might all like that until I uninstalled the shower head and noticed a piece of plastic around the rotatator ball that looks like it had broken. I then remembered the review on Amazon with the same crack ....... Coincidence or was I sent a returned and broken shower head ? Anyway I'm pretty disappointed. And from the reviews it doesn't look like I would be able to get a refund.

this product worked well while it lasted (2 months). unfortunately it did me no good after. I tried to return it but it was too late. my sister however bought the same one and hers is still going strong. maybe I got a defective one. who knows.
Only lasted 3 months.
January 6, 2017
After purchasing this product the blue tooth device broke after 3 months. In those 3 months our water bill doubled and the length of our showers shortened. It was not until I put 2 and 2 together I realized it was directly related to this shower head. The amount of water it disburses is substantially more than other shower heads. Since replacing it my water bill went down and the length of our showers increased
I loved this product it was amazing I wish the seller would contact me to discuss my options!
December 20, 2016
BUYER BEWARE!! At first I would have given this product a 5 star review. Although, as of 2 days ago the speaker stopped working, and I am told by amazon that it is not eligible for a return. I loved this product it was amazing, at first. Now it looks ugly and is useless. I only wanted the speaker replaced without having to purchase the entire shower head. I only had this item for two months before the speaker just stopped working one day and I am left with an ugly shower head. I would not by this item again. BUYER BEWARE
Speaker unable to charge. Worthless.
November 15, 2016
Shower head is good, haven't had any problems in 6 months with it, and the flow is good. The speaker worked great for the first couple weeks, but then it died and when we took it out to charge it, it wouldn't. Either the speaker won't charge or the charge is flawed- because we've never been able to get it to work again. If the shower head was super amazing I wouldn't mind, but I'd rather have our old shower head back if the speaker isn't going to work on this new one. Pretty disappointed, wish we would've gotten a working replacement.
Didnt work for me at all
June 4, 2016
I got this item on 6/3/16. Shower head works fine. However the speaker doesn't hold a charge. I left in plugged in from 11pm last night to 7am this morning. If it is plugged in it will power on. But as soon as I disconnect the speaker from the power source it will not turn on. I will be exchanging the item to try one more time.
I ordered this with two day
Update 7/2/16: returned and refunded. However now the price of the item has went up from 37.99 to 44.99. I will not be repurchasing.
