Over the years, I’ve brought a LOT of gadgets home to test. But in all that time, only once has my wife ever uttered the words, “I love this product.” And guess what – it was the Kohler Moxie showerhead!
So if you want, you can skip to the end, because when HollyPoz says she loves it, you know the Moxie is getting a Geek Beat Editor’s Choice award. But if you want a few more details first, read on fellow gadget enthusiasts!
What Is It?
The Kohler Moxie is a showerhead. But it’s also a Bluetooth speaker. They accomplish this by taking two fairly average products, and ingeniously blending them together.
On its own the showerhead is a pleasant water saver, running at 2.5 gallons per minute, which doesn’t make you feel starved for water. It’s just a shower. No more, no less, and without any fancy knobs to give you pulsing and other water patterns.
The speaker is a small, conical-shaped, water-proof unit powered by a sealed internal rechargeable battery. It has a waterproof flap on the back concealing a micro USB port for charging the battery, which is good for about 6 hours of usage. And on the front is a single button which also serves as an informative LED. Solid blue means you’re playing. Flashing blue means you’re pairing.
When the Moxie is running a little low on juice, the power button simply flashes intermittently to let you know its time to plug it in for a charge.
Why Would You Want It?
If your household is anything like ours, one partner tends to wake up and go to work before the other. Meaning the first person has to be relatively quiet so as not to disturb the other. Of course, the second person (that’s me) can be as loud as they want – which is why we have a Sonos in the bathroom!
Well, for you early risers, the Kohler Moxie offers you the ability to listen to tunes from a speaker positioned only about a foot away from your head while the water is running. And from extensive testing I can tell you for certain that this won’t wake up even the lightest sleeper in the other room! Boo-yah! Music in the morning!
Kohler Moxie Showerhead Editor’s Choice
The Moxie can be purchased online at Amazon for $149, or with local retailers such as Lowe’s or Home Depot. If you enjoy your music in the shower, but need to keep it discreet, you can do no better than the Kohler Moxie.
