Love. It’s not too strong a word to describe the feelings I have for the Kohler Moxie shower head. The sleek modern lines of this fixture add an instant update to your bathroom decor. I was skeptical when first introduced to the concept of a musical shower head. I just couldn’t wrap my head around the fact that you could listen to your own personal choice of music whilst you’re taking a shower. This was once unheard of, but now having a one-person party in your shower seems like the norm, especially if you’re listening to hot playlists that are circulating at the minute. It gives you the chance to not only listen to the best songs out there but to also get clean at the same time. It’s amazing. But what I really wanted to know is how exactly does it work? One way or another I figured something would suffer, either the quality of the water flow or the quality of the sound. After all, I’d seen those water resistant radios that you can hang in the shower and while I liked the idea, I had never seen one that delivered great sound in an aesthetically pleasing package. My hopes were bolstered by the experience I’ve had with other Kohler fixtures in the past, but I have to admit I was keeping my fingers crossed.
I received the Moxie here at the EncinoMom headquarters for the purposes of review. I knew it would be a hit with my husband, but worried about how the speaker would affect the water flow. I thought my tween age daughter would like it, but was concerned about the safety of having an electronic device in the wettest room in the house. I hoped I would be happy with the way the fixture looked, since I would probably not get to be the primary user no matter where it was installed! My trust in Kohler was not misplaced!
I love the look of this fixture. It’s sleek and clean and shiny and it’s a definite upgrade to the perfectly lovely shower head that it replaced. The outer ring of the fixture delivers a perfect flow of water, similar to a rain head even on the water conservation setting. The speaker fits elegantly into the center of the shower head and is held in place magnetically. Nothing to twist or turn or bend. Simply pluck the speaker out of the center of the fixture if you want to take your music to another room while your playlist accompanies your morning routine.
The pairing of the speaker with your Bluetooth device is exceedingly easy, too. We tested it with an iphone 4 and an ipod, both devices connected on the first try. The shower head install is about as easy as it gets. Just screw it in place of your old shower head using a bit of plumber’s tape to ensure a watertight seal. Literally – takes less than 5 minutes to complete the process. The fixture retails for $199. If you click the picture above, it links to an Amazon affiliate listing we located for $149.25 with free shipping. You can also see a picture of the Moxie from the side. The speaker portion is available in various colors. If you share a bathroom, you might enjoy having your own individual speaker to pair with your personal Bluetooth device. The only drawback to this product is that everyone in your family will want one in every bathroom!
I’m recommending this for Tweens, Teens, Moms, Dads, Singles, Sweethearts and Guest Bath Rooms, too! Whether you sing in the shower or crave a meditative spa-like experience, the Kohler Moxie delivers your playlist flawlessly. You could even use the speaker to deliver baby’s lullaby when you take the family on the road. You can see, hear and purchase the Kohler Moxie at Pirch in Glendale and other fine retailers where Kohler fixtures are sold.
