The Ion Sound Splash Bluetooth Waterproof speaker: a review

ion sound splash Bluetooth wireless speaker
I love music. I shower everyday. How great to be able to maximise the joy that is iTunes Match on my iPhone by listening to it perfectly safely in the shower.

I love this gadget. It's my new favourite piece of tech. Simple, smart, pleasing to the eye. You can even, if you were super sad, answer the phone using it. Thankfully video calls wouldn't work.

It takes less than 30 seconds to read the 3 steps involved in pairing it to your phone.

Basically press a couple of buttons and you are on.

I left my iPhone in the bedroom, got in the shower, turned on the Ion Sound Splash and pressed play. It started playing where I last left off. Brilliant. I need to keep testing the range, but the Bluetooth connection is pretty darn good.
You can play and pause the song and also control the volume. You can't skip tunes though, so make sure you have a shower playlist, or album, ready.

It is big enough to provide good sized buttons and a speaker that can easily cut through the sound of the water. It's small enough to hook happily on my shower unit and not get in the way.

I'm seriously considering purchasing a second one, to save having to re-pair with my iPhone after my husband has been using it with his. But it only takes a second, so maybe that really is lazy?

It's brilliant.

An Ion Sound Splash Bluetooth waterproof speaker was provided for the purpose of this review. Views are the authors own and entirely objective. In other words, I only rave about stuff that I feel deserves it, and I love this!


  1. I actually hang mine just outside of the shower (away from the water) because I worry about the hook rusting. I can easily reach out of the shower to adjust the volume if needed, so it's great. The battery life is fantastic. I've had it 4 months and charged it twice, and there's been a couple occasions where I've left it running for hours at a time (like when I clean the bathroom and rooms around it).

    Unfortunately, despite having only charged it twice it no longer works. It appears the connector is now loose and can't make a connection to charge the battery. I expected much better quality for the price and am pretty disappointed.
