What customers say about "Key Specs"
iFox iF012 Bluetooth Shower Speaker
  • I have a google play account set up with his favorite music and I connect it via bluetooth from my chromebook.
  • My phone or tablet are far away and safe, the volume is awesome, and if you have it connected to the phone and get a call, you can answer! This thing is great!
  • Blue tooth on my Alcatel One Touch connects easily every time.
  • I can wholeheartedly vouch for the water proof design, still would not fully submerge into any liquid though.
  • But the bluetooth connection was horrendous! My iPhone being like 20 feet away in another room made the playback annoying enough to create a habit of bringing the iPhone into the bathroom for my showers...
iFox iF013 Bluetooth Shower Speaker
  • Bluetooth paired easily with Ipod and Android phone. It stays connect with phone in back bedroom or kitchen.
  • I have a Android and it connected very easily. Great product!
  • Connecting was simple, great sound while I showered! I would recommend.
  • It connects really easily and gives great sound. I love the funky colors and matt finish.
  • If you're looking for a waterproof, dust proof, shock proof, Bluetooth wireless speaker this is it. Unlike some competitors I saw, this isn't just splashproof it's completely waterproof.

What customers say about "Audio"
iFox iF012 Bluetooth Shower Speaker
  • I listen to NPR in the mornings, and audio great for that. If listening to music, sounds about the same as if you played directly from your phone so don't expect a good high range or thumping bass.
  • I decided to try the phone feature again a few times and every time I tested it again, it the audio quality was on par with the sound I got while listening to music/podcasts.
  • The sound quality is great and now I can listen to my audible audio books in the shower without missing a word!
  • If you're addicted to podcasts, live sports audio, music, audio books, anything that streams/plays on an iPhone, get this shower speaker. You will be delighted with it!
  • It paired perfectly fine however absolutely no audio was produced from the speaker even when using the volume up and down.
iFox iF013 Bluetooth Shower Speaker
  • If all of the above were not enough the speaker that I received cut off the first word of every sentence when playing audio books.
  • The sound quality is very good (as it should be in the shower) and I have not experienced any negative effects from water coming into contact with the speaker (as expected).
  • Pairs easily, decent sound, but distorts at higher volume levels.
  • The sound bounces around all the walls.
  • Sound is excellent. Any phone or device with Bluetooth capability to send sound will work.

What customers say about "Features"
iFox iF012 Bluetooth Shower Speaker
  • At first the controls were hard to figure out but then I read the directions, who knew that's what they were for.
  • The controls are large and easy to use.
  • Amazing speaker though with easy to use controls definitely recommend for any music lovers and terrible shower singers like myself.
  • I would recommend iFox creations to add the FM radio feature and add an LCD display with a temperature sensor feature.
  • It was okay, but limited in volume and control.
iFox iF013 Bluetooth Shower Speaker
  • I don't know if it has an auto shut off feature. Otherwise, 5 stars!
  • The radio feature is really nice as well as it comes in nice and clear with no static whatsoever.
  • One issue is seeing the controls is a little difficult. Other than that if you want an inexpensive small waterproof speaker this one works great.
  • This little speaker has awesome sound and it gets loud!! We've only tried it out 1 day so not sure of battery life.
  • The thing that really ruins my enjoyment of this speaker: The volume/skip controls. Placing volume +/- on the long-press function was a design mistake.
  • The second issue is the raising volume. I hate how I can't really control the volume well.

What customers say about "Power"
iFox iF012 Bluetooth Shower Speaker
  • It has an amazingly long battery life and only once did he burn the power all the way down, and that was on a night I forgot to recharge.
  • As far as battery life, I listened to mine every day for about 30 mins for about 2 weeks before needing a charge.
  • Battery life is good, but it’s difficult to estimate the amount of time you get on a single charge unless you count your showers. I would definitely recommend this item.
  • I had a little difficulty powering off the device, but customer help pointed out that I have to hold the power button down for 5-6 seconds.
  • Even if I charge it up and don't use it, with the power off, for a couple days, it will be dead.
iFox iF013 Bluetooth Shower Speaker
  • The battery life is about 8 hours, give or take, depending on volume and lights usage, only taking 2-3 hours to charge.
  • Battery life isn't the greatest. I feel like it's always dying and once it gets to low battery it still won't let you play music even while connected to a charger.
  • I feel like it's always dying and once it gets to low battery it still won't let you play music even while connected to a charger.
  • Great concept but it does not last on the batteries if it's cold at all.
