What makes a good quality shower radio? A quality shower radio has to be firstly splashproof/waterproof. It does not necessarily need to be completely waterproof as you unlikely to be soaking it in the bath. With water and metal there is always a chance of rust developing so a sealed plastic casing is a must.
It should be easy to use, with simple and handy presets. It’s likely that each member of the family will have vastly different listening tastes so if the radio can store your favourite radio stations that’s an instant time saver. Volume is an important factor to consider and you may not considered this but a shower can be a noisy environment and a tiny home radio speaker can struggle to be heard over the sound of the running shower water. If you are searching for a cheap shower radio consider getting a decent size wattage of speaker should help project the sound to your ears (2-3 watts would be more than enough most cheap ones have this covered). Generally at the top end of the market manufacturers use higher quality parts meaning wattage is not as important a factor.
Being able to stick/mount it on the shower wall can be useful if you have limited space. The radio hardware is another important factor as the latest Dab shower radios offer superior digital quality sound and can receive a much clearer signal. If you have ever tried to listen to 5 Live sport you might be familiar with the poor crackly sound quality of the analogue signal in different areas of the country.
Recently DAB shower radios have become popular, if you are used to high quality sound perhaps from dab radio in your kitchen, then you’ll know what to expect. Take a look at the latest bathroom radio reviews on the right hand menu, they should help you decide what to buy.
