What customers say about "Key Specs"
SoundBot SB510 Water Resistant Shower Speaker
  • It connects easily, and is connected to 3 phones. It has a long range, as I can charge my phone in my room and still have the Bluetooth connected (so like probably 6 feet or more).
  • It's super easy to connect to your Bluetooth; although, I do recommend putting on the speaker first, then your music, then turning on your Bluetooth and connecting it.
  • It's water-proof and works great if you want to listen to music at the beach or in the shower
  • Love it!! it's speakers sound soo loud and its water proof cool now I can listen to my music in the shower or pick up the phone when somebody's calling me.
  • It worked for a good 2 months before it just stopped connecting. So sad because it was such a good product.
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...

What customers say about "Audio"
SoundBot SB510 Water Resistant Shower Speaker
  • I received the SoundBot a week back and so far I've been quite satisfied. The audio quality is pretty good.
  • This inexpensive device works great! I do know a thing or two about audio and for what it is I was impressed with the volume level and ease of plug n play.
  • Nice design good audio and quality.
  • One down side is it appeared to stop audio when I plugged it in to charge up.
  • It's okay to use. the audio quality is so so.
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.

What customers say about "Features"
SoundBot SB510 Water Resistant Shower Speaker
  • Works great, and has controls to skip along, if wanted, or repeat your favorites.
  • Amazing volume! Controls can be a little tricky, but once you get the hang of the volume/skip button (one button 2 functions) it's good.
  • Volume controls are a bit tricky, but only because sometimes I skip a song I really like when I mean to be turning it up.
  • Works perfectly. Volume control works good
  • It does have volume control on it, but I find it better to adjust the volume on my phone, which is irritating if I want to adjust it when my phone isn’t nearby.
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.

What customers say about "Power"
SoundBot SB510 Water Resistant Shower Speaker
  • I love this thing! It's got great volume, it has fallen off/been dropped a couple times and it works perfectly fine, and the battery lasts FOREVER
  • Long battery life. (I only use it for minutes a day)
  • Battery life is good so far, but I don't use it every day.
  • We have not had any battery issues like those stated in other reviews.
  • But after testing it out with the battery charge it came with, I plugged it in to charge it and it never woke up again.
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.
