This was a fun addition to the kids shower. It is failing after about 3 years of use. The shower head has a seal that has now broken and leaks water when showering. We will replace with a different type of shower head.

I agree with others, speaker not load enough.
Also, after 3 years of use, about 6 months each year, the silicon face is detaching from the base.
I like the flow rate and size of the spray pattern

I have a waterproof phone but the problem is that the speaker is absolute rubbish. Moxie came to save the day. I have used moxie to listen to both music and talk radio and it certainly gets the job done.
Just push the button on the front of the speaker before you turn the water on and it is ready to sync with a phone. Volume is controlled via your phone. All in all it is quite simple.
Installation was a breeze too, just make sure you have some thread tape to get a good seal. The speaker itself is held in via a magnet so when you need to charge your moxie, just pull it out and plug it in. It uses a micro usb plug which is exactly what i have on my android phone so when I need to, I usually just plug it during the day while I am at work.
The spray itself is good, however, the holes are so small I wonder if they will be clogged quickly from minerals in my water. May need to keep a needle around to free it up if that happens.
The showerhead is very simple to install. The overall built feels good quality. The speaker pod has a magnet and is detachable from the showerhead. It charges via a usb cable that is supplied with the product (Its not the regular micro usb that comes with the cellphones). Takes around 3-4 hours for a full charge and the battery lasts for around 5 days with daily use. The pairing with bluetooth is very easy, basically just find the speaker on bluetooth and pair it (there is no pairing code). Coming to the sound quality, its actually decent considering the size of the pod. I was not expecting much from a shower speaker, but this one turned out really good. Its pretty loud too, i have to keep the settings to 70% of volume on my iphone and that's loud enough. You might have to play with the equalizer settings on your phone to get the best quality sound. The actual shower is not bad either, however you only get a fixed rainshower mode and nothing else. Only con I can think of is the lack of volume control and song skipping control. Overall an excellent buy if you are looking for a nice shower speaker to listen to music or news while you are in the shower.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Install, Looks Great, Stylish, Modern
Kohler has brought music to the shower with this showerhead. The simple easy to install showerhead will transform any shower. Out of the box, I was surprised by the lightness of the product, and its powerful magnet that holds the Bluetooth speaker in the middle of the showerhead. No, latches or screwing just pull/push the speaker and it sticks.
The speaker is waterproof with a one function connect button, lighting up either blue or red. Connecting is simple, enable Bluetooth on the device you want to stream from and hit the button on the showerhead, simple as that. Little disappointed that the speaker came with a USB cable to charge, but no power outlet adapter. You may use your computer or almost any USB to charge, although. The battery has lasted about a week or so with around 1-3 20 minute+ uses a day, so it does hold a charge for quite a while.
The Sound quality is loud enough for our shower, glass door shower only, so the acoustics maybe a bit different than if using in a shower/tub with shower curtain. The quality works for what it is and its size, average sounding, if not a little better. No complaints as the sound is clear and great for the shower, just don’t expect thumping bass or surround sound in the shower.
This showerhead replaces a rain showerhead, which we have enjoyed much better. Love the showerhead even without the speaker installed! Has great water pressure and great flow, as well as looks modern, clean and sleek. This is a wonderful upgrade to our shower.
Pros: Durable, Lots of Features, Easy to Install, Strong Water Pressure, Looks Great, Stylish, Modern
Showerhead was very simple to install. Did not include teflon tape, but worth noting so you can buy some before the installation. To turn on the speaker, simply push and hold the little button on the speaker. Once you find the product from your iPhone or Android device and connect to it, you never have to do it again. Controlling the volume can only be done from your device, and not the showerhead itself, so set the volume before hitting up the shower! Controlling the music as far as pausing, stopping, skipping, can also only be controlled from your device. Device turns off automatically after about 5 minutes of non-use.
The sound has really crisp and good quality! Good highs and mids. Nothing is tinny nor distorted when played. It's plenty loud for me to hear in the shower. The speaker is magnetized to the showerhead, and easy to take out for charging. Charging is done with an included micro-USB cable. Battery life is incredible.
Aside from the lack of controls for the speaker, this device will get the job done, and it doubles as a showerhead, which has good coverage! It also looks really cool; if anyone comes to visit, they will definitely be asking about it. I would recommend it.
average showerhead, average speaker, not great at either

Ease of installation :
It's a beautiful showerhead that comes up short as a head and as a speaker.
The showerhead is white plastic in a chrome housing. The spray is nice, but the pressure isn't that great. It's not as bad as a low flow showerhead, and you can get used to it, but it seems like a compromise that isn't worth making. If you have long, thick, hair, you'll want something with better pressure.
The speaker is a white cone that attaches magnetically to the head. You have to remove it to charge it with the included usb cable, it took about 3 hrs to fully charge out of the box. We've been using the speaker twice daily for two weeks and haven't had to recharge it yet, so that's not really an issue. When you need to charge it you can just do it overnight.
The look is very clean, with just the on/off button on the surface. It blinks a nice blue when it's pairing with a device and is a solid blue when in use. It will automatically turn off after 90 seconds if it's not paired with a device.
The speaker quality is average, about what you'd expect for a small portable speaker. Pairing it with my iPhone 5s was easy, but it wouldn't pair when the speaker was out of the head and charging. As soon as I put it in the head it paired without problem. I'm not sure if this is just an odd coincidence, or if it's designed like that.
The speaker is loud enough with music that you can hear well while the shower is running. With news or talk, depending on the source, it gets a bit hard to clearly hear what's going on, even at full volume. If you have your device set at full volume there is great chance of distortion, and depending on the stream, you have to do quite a bit of noodling to find the correct setting for clear audio and high volume.
The major issue I have with this is that there's no way to adjust the volume from the speaker. So once you step in the shower, you're stuck with whatever it's set at unless you want to get out. This is a problem if you're streaming from a device in a different room. It's also a problem that depending on how you use your streaming device the volume settings will change from day to day, so you'll have to re-adjust the volume each time before you step in the shower.
When the shower's not running the speaker is great, and it's nice to have music in the bathroom while getting ready for work.
I would recommend this if it had volume controls on the speaker and an EQ button to adjust for music or talk. Until then it's just a novelty as there are better showerheads and better speakers out there.
Pros: Easy to Install, Looks Great, Stylish, Modern
Please watch my video review for this product (below).
The Kohler Moxie showerhead is an innovative showerhead that includes a water-resistant speaker so you can listen to music while you shower. The portable, wireless speaker easily connects to all of my Bluetooth-ready electronic devices, and I am pleased with the good-quality sound it produces. The speaker docks directly into the showerhead with a powerful magnet, so removing the speaker to charge it or use it in other places besides your shower is incredibly easy.
Although the speaker takes up a large portion of the showerhead, the Moxie showerhead puts out a full-coverage spray of water thanks to its 60 angled nozzles. Additionally, given its water-saving 2.5 gallon-per-minute flow rate, the water pressure produced by the Moxie is surprisingly good. I don't enjoy low-pressure showerheads, even if they are good for the environment, so I was worried about that aspect of the Moxie, but my concerns were unnecessary – the pressure is great.
Although it is pricier than many traditional showerheads, Kohler's Moxie is a great choice if you want good-sounding music to be part of your showering experience. It's easy to install and use, and I am very happy with it.
Pros: Durable, Easy to Install, Strong Water Pressure, Looks Great, Stylish, Modern
Quite excited to get one of these. I would try to listen to music or podcasts from time to time while showering but never had a good solution. This product is almost perfect. Installation is a breeze and syncing with my various devices was equally as easy. Sound quality and loudness is about what I expected. Nothing crazy, but certainly good enough to get the job done. My biggest wish would be controls on the unit. Pause, forward, back and volume would be amazing. However lets be honest, listening to music wirelessly using a speaker IN your shower head is magic enough, so lets not get greedy.
One comment about the spray pattern. This Moxie replaced a Kohler 2.5 G shower head in our master bath. The old shower head seemed to give a more forceful spray which I actually preferred. My wife likes the Moxie better and says it's more rain like and focused. So to each their own!
Pros: Easy to Install, Looks Great, music in your shower
I must admit I was skeptical about purchasing a shower head with a speaker. 5 years in and we are convinced. Powerful spray with full coverage. Purchased many different types of shower heads over the years. So far, this is one of the best. Units go bad sometimes and need replacement over the years. Called Kohler, they checked my address and BOOM new shower head (no speaker, of course). Slapped the new one on and back in business. Found the unit to be of high quality and works well. I would definitely recommend it.
