Ivation IVA-400 Waterproof Wireless Bluetooth Shower Speaker and Handsfree speakerphone : This had to be the best waterproof speaker!

Portable Speakers
1

And i wasn’t expecting the phone-call function. How handy to be able to take or make a phone call in the shower.

This product is really worth the money. The sound quality is good and it goes really loud. Really easy to connect to your phone and being able to change the song is helpful.

My husband loves it portable,good quality music and lasts.

Easy to follow to get it to work good sound little bit expensive for what it is but works good.

Features of Ivation IVA-400 Waterproof Wireless Bluetooth Shower Speaker and Handsfree speakerphone for All Bluetooth Devices, BLACK

Compatible with any Bluetooth media player or phone –

I brought this after looking for a speaker for my iphone that i could use in the shower, i was a little unsure if i should purxhase it after reading some reviews on here, but i have been using this for a little over a month now with no problems, the sound is crisp & clear with no hissing like i have had with cheaper products.

Use this with my google nexus 5 to listen to bbc radio and podcasts. I’ve learnt that if you only turn it off on the front and not the slider switch on the back it loses charge on the battery but if you switch it off on the back it lasts ages.

This is a really great item and i use it all the time. It has a great connection distance and the speaker may be small but it gives out a really loud high quality sound. Fair enough if its not in the bathroom it doesn’t sound that great but as soon as it goes into the bathroom it sounds really really good and the battery lasts for ages. I use it for about half an hour every night and i only need to charge it like once a month. The reason for giving 4 stars and not 5 is that there is a few small things that could be a lot better. The product still seems quite cheap and still in early development, its a great idea but its just not the best quality product. You have to open the back and flick the switch on and off every time you use it so thats not the best, and you can only connect it to one device without going through the process of un pairing and re pairing. I think its a great product and a great idea and i would recommend it but i also recommend further development.

I can phone him at any time and he answers, even in the shower.

It looks ok and does the job. Plus:- good sound, not too bassy, not too trebly- phone calls work fine. People say they hear the water and can’t believe i am actually under the shower :)- decent build qualityminus- takes quite a long time to charge and sometimes the led doesn’t turn green to say it’s fully charged- charge doesn’t last long — i use it briefly under the shower every day and it lasts perhaps a week or a bit more. Even if you don’t use it the charge will deplete itself, which is not great- no eq optionsoverall good i would recommend it. But i have another bluetooth speaker that has a battery life of weeks compared to this.

My 18 year old son listens to music on his phone while having a shower & didn’t think that was very goos for the phone. Bought this because i loved the idea of it & the colour is funky. He absolutely loves it & he assures the sound quality is good & he likes all the functions on it. So if he’s happy, i’m delighted.

2 Key features where updated 1: The battery was upgraded.

No problems at all with this product. It does what it says on the packet. Don’t expect hifi quality sound, but that said, for listening to music in the shower it’s the best i’ve seen or heard. It has good volume and a reasonable tone and has marked an end to the use of shower radios in my house.

I’ve brought my partner and my best friend one of these each for christmas. Highly recommend them, most speakers tend to go crackly when loud.

Bought as a present and apart from little initial trouble with foreign plug (that was quickly resolved) it is brilliant. My daughter loves it and told me not long ago that she’s heard others and hers is the best so she’s very pleased and i’ve got my brownie points :).

Auto Pairing Feature: Pairs your device with the Ivation speaker automatically when it is in range of the speaker.

Pros:- bluetooth pairing was as easy as advertised- the speaker is waterproof- sound is ok (for a budget bluetooth speaker)cons:- the power switch is difficult to access (behind waterproof cover)- battery drains very quickly (. In its current state, it is mediocre at best – i would not buy this again.

Great item, great quality sound and does what it says on the box.

I chose this as a good compromise between price and reviewed capability. Paired after updating the laptop driver. With connectivity through a brick wall or two.

A great little speaker, connects at a respectable distance so your iphone, ipod, or i-whatever doesn’t even have to be in the bathroom; easy to connect, easy to use, my sons are happy (and clean), altogether a great quality product.

Waterproof (Rated IPX6) Can withstand powerful water jets –

Good for a year or two then wouldn’t charge, or battery end of life?decent sound for the price. On button was a bit hit and miss.

This is not a radio and requires many steps just to listen to music.

Having tried a couple of cheaper bluetooth speakers and have them break or have terrible sound quality i decided to stump up for this. I do most of my listening in the bath so the water resistant feature is a big plus. I *think* this is the second generation as it was purchased after the manufacturer said they made changes fixing issues that others complained of. I bought these speakers around a month ago and it’s still running off the first charge.I use them every other day for around half an hour for either postcasts (quiet) or music (fairly loud). So, the battery life is very impressive. Other details that might interest. I use it with a galaxy nexus, nexus 7 and iphone 5 without issue. It’s been in a very humid environment for around a month and seems fine. The sound quality is better than i expected and bass is fairly punchy for the size.

One that genuinely fills a gap in your life, making dead time more enjoyable. This speaker works perfectly, so now i can listen to podcasts while i shower, making it a much more enjoyable way to spend my time. Great sound, reliable bluetooth connection, reasonable price.

Very poor battery, even when telephone is not connected and the switch on the back is not off the battery is consuming. When telephone connected or disconnected the device does not anounce status. Good and sufficient speakers.

Had a previous version of this product which was wonderful and woul last 2 weeks worth of showersthis version is a disaster. I’m on a replacement already and the battery works for 10 minutes then next morning, is fully discharged. It’s upsetting when a good product is destroyed.

Battery lasts about a day before needing to be recharged (even being turned off). Quality is alright, although no bass at all. Takes ages to turn on and off. Gone horribly rusty after a couple of months.

The only thing i would change about mine is that the soft-power button on the front does not stop the battery draining, while the switch at the back under the waterproof cover (i call it the hard-power button) does. This means that i have to switch it on twice each morning and dry it before i switch it off. This is the only flaw, though. Otherwise the sound quality is amazing and the switches are easy to use even with wet hands, and there’s no indication any water’s getting in at all (unlike my old fm one which was only splash proof).

Appalling battery life if you don’t use the rear covered power switch. The front power/standby button must be leaving it draining battery. 2 uses, then a day later the battery was completely dead.

The speaker initially worked well, but within two months, the power inlet socket at the back of the speaker broke meaning the speaker could no longer be used. I contacted the seller, but did not hear anything back for a month when they contacted me saying “recently there were some technical issues with our email server so i am writing this email to confirm that as a valued customer your issue has been resolved. Do you still need assistance?. How can i be of assistance?”this was strange as the issue certainly had not been resolved, so i replied to let them know. I received the following message back “the email message could not be delivered because the user’s mailfolder is full”. I continued to try and have emailed them on the following dates with the same message returned to me: – 16th january – twice – 20th january – 5th february – 23rd february – 3rd marchit is a shame as it could have been a great product, but due to the non-existent customer service i would recommend that you do not purchase this.

Bought it for my son for christmas,sound really good, loved it but has now packed up, not been dropped or submerged in water, just stopped working. Amazon and manufacturers don’t want to know so massive risk if you buy one.

Very frustrated as was rather happy with this item. Then after 3 months just stopped working, no discernible reason. Too late to return to amazon. Trying to go down the manufacturers warranty trail, no luck as of yet. But not willing to just eat it and go away, these things should work.

I was so looking forward to finally having some way of listening to internet radio in my shower as i live abroad and can’tlisten to uk channels in any other way. So, having fully charged the speaker, i enjoyed 10 minutes of play in the morning. Making sure the speaker was switched off i set off to work in the comfort of knowing that i had read that the speaker would last for 25 hours of play. Surely weeks if not months of play as i would only listen for only 10 minutes in the morning. The following morning – dead battery. This happened continually over the following week. Now i have to prize open the back every morning and use the master on-off switch in order to listen. Apparently i am (we are) not entitled to a working replacement only a refund which would involve postage from my country of residence to my elderly mother’s house with a collection date such as to render my refund impossible. If only they could actually test one which works and replace it at a time further than 6 days from now. All very disappointing as i have now seen many bad reviews on amazon.

Excellent sound, have purchased 2. The charging connection is very poorly soldered to the back plate, minimal force and it will break off falling inside the radio and there it is useless. Do not waste your money on this.

The somewhat ugly design didn’t stop it working very well after its first charge. But whether poor quality control of the effect of water, the unit failed to charge after 5 or 6 cycles.

Imagine a speaker loud enough to be heard in a running shower but resilient enough to take on splashing water and soap. The hipe waterproof wireless shower speaker does all that and more. The speaker connects wirelessly to iphones, ipads, ipods, or android-powered devices, allowing you to listen to your personal music collection or stream music from apps. You can control the track selections, volume and you can even answer or make calls.I have not had the nerve to make a call yet – i don’t know how the other person might react knowing i am scrubbing away while talking to them. Just imagine how that conversation could go. :-)the included instructions are simple to follow. Pairing the speaker with my iphone 5 was extremely easy. No inputting of pins or codes are needed. I also paired my daughter’s iphone 4s and my son’s ipod 5g.
