Kohler's New Musical Shower Head

I attended a builder lunch sponsored by Kohler yesterday and the rep had the coolest thing I've seen in a while. Kohler has come out with a shower head that has a waterproof speaker that magnetically sticks into the head! It's called the Kohler Moxie, and the crowd of guys I was with LOVED it. It's basically a small bluetooth connected speaker that streams music from your iPhone. 

Looks like a standard shower head, just screw off the old and screw this one on. Simple install.

 

The bluetooth connection paired flawlessly. Cue the music, press play... simple

 

A magnet holds it in securely. Pop it out to recharge with a USB connection.

 


It was loud, and sound quality was pretty darn good. I think this would sound really good in a shower. I connected my iPhone 5 to this unit and was playing music from it in about 10 seconds!  I also like that it comes in the standard 2.5 GPM (gallons per minute) or a water saving 2.0GPM.  

I missed this for Valentine's Day this year, but at $150 this is a killer gift. I really want one. I give the Kohler Moxie a major thumbs up, nice work Kohler people.   
Best,
