I am a confirmed podcast listener following several shows a day. I usually start listening in the morning in my shower. I’ve been listening using an external speaker sitting outside the shower but, with the volume needed, voices were sometimes distorted.

I wanted a waterproof Bluetooth speaker that I could put close to my ear inside the shower. Given the environment, I didn’t want to spend a lot on a item subject to spray and accidental falls.

The Splash Tunes has been a good in-shower speaker. I’ve been using it for a few months now with no problems. The suction cup lets me put it at ear level on the shower wall making voices clearly understandable over the water noise.

It also has speakerphone capability but, not being one to answer the phone in the shower, I don’t know how well that works. Volume and pause controls do work well and the rubber-membrane covered buttons give good tactile feedback.

A good low-cost choice for wet environments when you don’t want to worry too much about damaging a more expensive product.
