Review: The idea of a Bluetooth shower speaker fashioned as a cute yellow flower seemed worth trying. However, I’m not much of a techie kind of gal, so I need very clear instructions in order to make things work. Unfortunately, the instructions to the device were written in much the same way as the description above. In other words, English was not the primary language. As a result, it was a bit challenging to get the device paired with my iPhone.

Once that hurdle was overcome, I tested out the music feature before stepping in the shower. Even with the volume turned all the way up, the sound quality wasn’t enough to make this a “must have” device. Add the water noise, and the end result was less than stellar.

I did, however, like the concept of the suction cup. The speaker was easy to move around as needed for testing purposes. As for the camera aspect of the device, I was never able to get it to work. My overall impression was that the product concept is good, but more time needs to be devoted to making it perform as expected.
