Dance up a storm with wireless ‘rainhead’ style of showerhead

These high-tech showerheads use a portable water-resistant wireless speaker that pairs with your smartphone or enabled devices, so you can listen to music or the news while you shower.

Q: I plan to remove my bathtub and replace it with a large custom shower with a seat.

For the plumbing, I want to install a trendy showerhead to keep up with the times. I know you are up to date on new plumbing fixtures — can you please suggest a cool new showerhead that I can install?

A: I am in tune with your question, and I really mean “in tune.”

One new shower product that I’ve worked with combines music with a “rainhead” style of showerhead.

In recent years, we have seen standard showerheads with wireless-speaker technology. The musical-showerhead craze has spread to rain-style showerheads, as well.

One advantage of this style is that rainhead showers are usually installed directly overhead, so the speaker is in a better listening position.

These high-tech showerheads use a portable water-resistant wireless speaker that pairs with your smartphone or enabled devices, so you can listen to music or the news while you shower.

When you leave the shower, you can pop out the speaker and take it with you for recharging or continued listening.

Bottom line: With a new musical rain-style showerhead, you can groove to the beat while you wash your feet.
