Music to Your Ears: How to Turn Your Bathtub into a Speaker

Some things just work better when they’re together, like your favourite tunes and a long, relaxing soak in the bath. If you’re a fan of music in the bathroom, today’s blog post is for you. Tired of lugging your Bluetooth speaker into your bathroom every time, or settling for your phone’s tinny speakers? Then read on… and learn how you could transform your entire bathtub into a speaker. (Yes, you read that right).

When is a bath not a bath?

Baths are known for many things, but not many of them include any form of electricity – for reasons that should be very clear. Even with the advent of Bluetooth technology, bringing any form of electronic entertainment into the bathroom has always been a risk. From finding a safe place to plug things in, to losing a speaker to a bubbling spa bath, there’s lots that can go wrong – until now. With our Bath Sound System, you can safely bring your favourite music with you as you enjoy a lovely long soak in your tub. Even better? The experience is far more than simply being surrounded by the songs you love…

Don’t just hear your music – feel it

Unlike traditional Bluetooth speakers, even wireless ones, our Bath Sound System is entirely unique because it doesn’t just play sound into the room. Instead, this smart system uses the shell of the bathtub itself as a transmission vector for the sound. What does this mean for you? Well, in a nutshell, you’ll not only hear your music filling the room in rich detail, but you’ll actually feel it too. Due to the positioning of the speakers, the soundwaves produced will actually reverberate inside your bath (and even the water) to amplify the tunes and create a truly one-of-a-kind experience. The system relies on a clever speaker system discreetly installed to your bathtub; let’s find out a little more about how it works its magic.

How it works (the short version)

If all this sounds a little too good to be true, here’s an abridged explanation of how the system works. Essentially, we use a specialised form of speakers known as ‘exciters’. Two of these speakers are fixed to either side of your bathtub in discreet locations to represent the left and right channels of your music. You can simply connect to the Bath Sound System wirelessly via Bluetooth on your phone or tablet, (away from the water in the bath, naturally), set your favourite playlist going, then sit back and relax as the music envelops you. What’s more, if you have a smart device which supports Apple’s Siri, the Google Assistant, or Amazon Echo, you can use voice commands to choose the music you like without ever having to touch your device. Pretty smart stuff, right?
