Top 10 Waterproof Earbuds For Shower

Listening to music to jumpstart your day or whine down after a hectic work session is often the best remedy. Now combine that while showering, and you get a brilliant experience doing the two most relaxing things simultaneously.

Here are 10 of the best Shower Waterproof Bluetooth Headphones on the market today:

1. Anker Soundcore Sport X10 Earbuds

The Anker Soundcore Sport X10 was a pleasure to test, and its ANC (Active Noise Cancelation) technology, although still in the beta stage, showcased the designs’ possibilities. These earbuds come with all the bells and whistles at an affordable price.


Anker Soundcore Sport X10 earbuds come with an earloop for secure positioning. Initially, it may require some adjustment, but it provides excellent comfort once you become familiar with it. The one feature I was excited to try was the Active Noise Cancelation (ANC) technology, which did not disappoint. The earbuds six microphones, combined with the ANC tech, made the audio some of the best I experienced.


The Anker Soundcore Sport X10 Shower Headphones have a button on each earbud to interact with your phone and have dedicated actions when you receive a call. I found one minor setback: there is no volume control when it is set to mono mode in the default settings.

The Sport X10 produces adequate high and mid for clarity, but the bass, especially with the ANC tech, made the sound a pleasure. The Soundcore Sport X10 Waterproof Bluetooth Headphones have Bluetooth 5.2, and its IPX7 rating will let you enjoy them in the shower but not for too long.


The Sport X10 produces great battery time. Between phone calls and music, I found it to last about eight hours, and the charging case upped it to 32 hours before I had to recharge the whole setup. I recharged the case with a USB-C cable, it took about two hours, and the earbuds fully charged in the case within an hour.

2. BEBEN X8 True Wireless Earbuds

The BEBEN X8 earbuds are great if you want the features of a top earbud at a much lower price. While testing it, I realized that these earbuds have many qualities and features you would expect from high-end earbuds, like IP68 waterproofing and Bluetooth 5.0.


The BEBEN X8 earbuds are well built, and its charger case is a little bulky, but the case does have a carry handle that you can hold or attach to your jeans. I found the earbuds a little big, and that took away some of the comfort, but it does come with extra ear tips that helped a lot. The BEBEN X8 earbuds use a standard USB charging port.


The BEBEN X8 Shower Headphones pair easily, and it is iPhone compatible. I enjoyed the calling function on the BEBEN X8, especially the sound on the high-definition mic.

The BEBEN X8 Waterproof Bluetooth Headphones do not have the AptX audio tech, but I paired it with a Samsung Galaxy A51 with the Dolby Audio effect, producing great sound. It is shower friendly with its impressive IP68 waterproof rating, but too much water over a long period should be avoided.


The BEBEN X8 earbuds produce six hours of talking and listening time and recharge fully within an hour and a half, plus it provides about 70 hours of standby time.

3. Jabra Elite 7 Pro Earbuds

Jabra’s new Elite 7 Pro earbuds produce great quality ANC and audio, plus you can adjust it to taste. Most of the ANC earphones I tested are water resistant, but Jabra’s new Elite 7 Pro earbuds are fully waterproof, making them ideal for the pool and shower.


Jabra’s new Elite 7 Pro Shower Headphones have outer shell buttons, and although some may prefer capacitive controls, I loved the outer buttons because they reduced accidental presses. With the onboard controls, I could accept calls and adjust the media play without using my phone. What I liked most was that I could customize the single, double, and triple press with the remap function.

Like most earbuds, the Jabra Elite 7 Pro also comes with silicone tips, but overall, it has a very comfortable and secure fit.


The sound quality of the Jabra Elite 7 is exceptional, even without any EQ, and it provides great bass, although the bass was a little hazy. Jabra’s ANC did a great job canceling out any outside noise, and its Ambient Mode was a refreshing function, especially because I could converse with light music in the background. Ambient Mode and ANC have five adjustable levels.

I found that the Jabra Elite 7 Pro Waterproof Bluetooth Headphones provide good call quality with its bone conduction sensors and four mics, plus the phone app allows for additional fine-tuning to make it sound even better. I loved using it in the shower, and its IP57 rating ensured that I could enjoy it almost anywhere.


Without ANC, the Jabra Elite 7 took almost three hours to drop to 75% and eight hours to drain completely, which I found extraordinary. The charging case provides 30 hours of playtime, and charging the earbuds for five minutes will give you an hour of listening time. Another great function is that the Jabra Elite 7 charges wirelessly.

The Jabra Elite Active 75t earbuds have numerous features, and their comfortable fit provides hours of listening pleasure.


The Jabra Elite Active 75t Shower Headphones do not have a stem design, but three silicon ear tip sizes are included to ensure you get a perfect fit. The small ear tip was the most comfortable, although there was a slight hissing sound. I was impressed that the earbuds still felt comfortable after almost four hours.


Jabra’s Elite Active 75t earbuds linked effortlessly to my phone, and I found the sound to be crisp with loads of bass, producing clear vocals during every call. I tested the noise cancellation function, which worked well, improving the listening experience.

The Jabra Elite Active 75t Waterproof Bluetooth Headphones have an IP57 rating and a 10-meter range which worked well when I tested it in the shower. Overall, I love the design, especially the Jabra Sound+ companion app and the pause function when you remove one of the earpieces.


Compared to competitors, I was disappointed in the six hours of battery life, although it does have an auto turn-off function that shuts it down after 15 minutes if there is no connection. The charging case provides a 24-hour recharge capacity, which I found adequate, although still less than most competitors.

5. Jaybird X4 Wireless Bluetooth Earbuds

Jaybird’s X4 series has some new features that will blow your mind, and testing it was a great experience. Jaybird is ahead in the game for many reasons, and their Jaybird X4 is one example showing the company’s enthusiasm to be the best.


Off the bat, I fell in love with the aesthetics and the fact that it has some size to it but was not excessively bulky. On the right-hand side of the Jaybird’s X4 Shower Headphones cable is the control that features three buttons that charge with a charging cable.

Included are:

  • Gel ear tips (two pairs)
  • Fit wings (three pairs)
  • Memory foam tips (two pairs)
  • Charging cradle
  • Carry bag

The Jaybird’s X4 fits extremely comfortably, and even after a few hours, I had no discomfort or irritation. With all the extras, you will easily find a tip to keep it secure and comfortable.


I enjoyed the sound quality, especially the bass, which was not too overpowering and did not drown out the mid and highs. I found the Jaybird app user-friendly, allowing me to adjust the sound to my preference. However, I could not achieve a high-quality audiophile sound with the EQ.

The Jaybird X4 Waterproof Bluetooth Headphones connect via Bluetooth 4.1 to any compatible listening device and provide a 10-meter range and IPX7 rating that works well in the shower and the pool.


I enjoyed listening for hours on end, and the Jaybird X4 produced eight hours of battery life, but if I push the volume for extended periods, it does lessen the battery time. I did a 10-minute quick charge; it gave me one hour to use and took two hours to fully charge. I was disappointed it uses a proprietary charger, not a micro-USB like most earbuds.

6. JBL Reflect Aero Earbuds

I was excited to test the JBL Reflect with its new upgrades in waterproof ability and noise cancellation technology. JBL’s Reflect Aero Earbuds have an IP68 rating, one feature I was eager to test in the shower. JBL caters to sports fanatics, and its Reflect Aero earbuds are challenging all its competitors with its IP rating and ANC.


The Reflect Aero’s Shower Headphones and charge case are compact and convenient. The case’s large loop allows for easy attachment to a belt, making it a useful feature. I found the wing and in-ear tip in three sizes to fit comfortably in my ear even after many hours.

The JBL Reflect Aero’s app is easy to work on, and setting up the touch panel on the earbuds allowed me to customize it to my liking, which was great. I tested the ANC (Active Noise Cancellation) and found some wind noise when I used it in awareness modes. One feature I love is the voice prompt, which lets you know your sound mode.


JBL Reflect Aero Earbuds’ sound is excellent, especially with the app selection that allows you 5 preset settings. The TalkThru and Ambient Aware sound mode is not the best, but it allows you to customize the sound.

The Reflect Aero is highly durable, with an IP68 rating, which means it can withstand submerging up to 1.5 meters for 30 minutes. This makes it a great choice for use in the shower without worries. The JBL Reflect Aero Waterproof Bluetooth Headphones support Bluetooth 5.2, and its dynamic 6.8mm drivers provide top sound, although the sound on a phone call was not great.


The battery life with the JBL Reflect Aero Earbuds is standard and provides 8 hours of playtime, and with the ANC on, about 7 hours, although it depends on the volume and how often you use the functions. The charging case will ensure 24 hours before recharging the full setup, which takes 2 hours.

7. Senso Bluetooth Wireless Earbuds

Senso’s Bluetooth Wireless earbuds are ideal if you are a sports fanatic and have a tight budget. The IP rating gives it all the benefits of more expensive earbuds and provides good quality and reliability.


I found the Senso Bluetooth Shower Headphones extremely comfortable, and the three different size silicon earpieces made it easy to fit smoothly. Another great aspect that I particularly like is the adjustable ear hooks. The ear hooks are made from memory metal that you can adjust to your comfort.

The two earpieces connect via a wire behind your neck, but I did not experience any entanglement or discomfort.


I was surprised at the quality of the sound. Senso boasts of its performance, and it did a great job. The bass was great and balanced the mid and highs well. The noise cancellation technology is some of the best I have experienced and blocks most ambient noise.

Senso’s CVC 6.0 noise-canceling mic performed well on phone calls. Senso’s Waterproof Bluetooth Headphones IPX7 rating makes them waterproof and great to use in the shower but not too long.

TOZO’s T6 True Wireless Earbuds provide a beautiful and rounded sound quality, and it is one of the most comfortable earbuds I have tested. The noise cancelation is the one factor that sets it apart from competitors.


TOZO T6 True Wireless Shower Headphones are aesthetically pleasing, and their compact charger case makes them ideal for taking out on the road. It features touch-sensitive controls, a great addition to the simple yet stylish design. I love that the manufacturer focused on comfort and included six ear tip sizes for maximum comfort.


TOZO T6 Waterproof Bluetooth Headphones produce beautifully balanced audio, although the bass underperformed to my liking. The mid and highs are crisp, but I found the sound of a phone call lacking. One disappointing factor was that it does not feature ANC, but when I secured it properly, it produced decent isolation. I was impressed that I could use it in the shower with its IPX8 waterproof rating, and the charging case is also rated IPX8.


The TOZO T6 did not particularly impress me with its six hours of battery time, but the charging case provides 30 hours of top-up capacity, which surely makes up for it. The fact that I could charge it on any Qi-enabled wireless charging station made me forget about the six hours of playtime it provides.

9. TOZO T10 Bluetooth 5.3 Wireless Earbuds

The TOZO T10 Bluetooth 5.0 Wireless Earbuds are TOZO’s latest addition, and they showcase several remarkable features, including HiFi Stereo Sound, Bluetooth 5.0, Touch Control, and IPX8 Waterproof. Testing these earbuds was a great experience I look forward to sharing.


I found TOZO’s T10 Shower Headphones very light and portable, and the flexible silicone tips provide a comfortable fit. Some earbuds irritate your ears and cause discomfort after a while, but the TOZO T10 stays comfortable.

I tested it out on a jog and found it exactly as advertised. The ear tips were soft and, even after a few jumps up and down, stayed in place, and the design easily matched the inner contours of my ear.

The TOZO T10 is comfortable but has a few design issues that could be a dealbreaker for some. The controls are less impressive, stiff, and hard to press, causing them to go deeper into your ear when you push them.

Other drawbacks are the two single buttons on each earbud that have the same function and the double-click redial function that caused me to accidentally dial someone.


I loved the TOZO T10 sound quality, especially the bass. The highs are well balanced with the lows, and the secure fit did a great job keeping external sounds out. One of the TOZO T10’s best features is the IPX8 rating that lets you enjoy it in the pool and shower.

The TOZO T10’s Waterproof Bluetooth Headphones Nano Coating technology allows you to go 1 meter underwater for up to 30 minutes, making it great in the shower.


The T10 provides six hours of playing time, and its charging case recharges it fully within 4 to 5 hours, providing thirty hours before the case must charge. I used a USB-C cable, which fully charged the case within one and a half hours, and uses wireless charge.

Has an IPX8 rating and provides 1-meter water resistance for up to 30 minutesThe battery life is poor compared to competitors
Great sound with good bassThe microphone provides poor-quality sound

Secure and comfortable fit

10. Tribit FlyBuds 3 Earbuds

I thoroughly enjoyed testing the Tribit FlyBuds 3 Earbuds with their all-black aesthetics and easy-to-work-with touch controls. In its price range, the FlyBuds 3 compares and competes well in the market, and my overall view is that the designers did a great job. A few small things could be better, but it was a personal taste issue rather than a design flaw.


Tribit opted for a simplistic design, and its Flybuds 3 Shower Headphones with wing tips provide a comfortable and secure fit that performs well with anyone with an active lifestyle. I loved testing the Tribit FlyBuds 3 Earbuds; the lightweight ensured I could wear them for hours without discomfort.

The charging case is a little big, but the 100 hours of playback time it provides had me using it the whole week without doing a full charge which I found amazing. In most cases, the charging port sits at the back, whereas the FlyBuds 3’s sits in the front, which is different but does not affect its workability.


I particularly enjoyed the crisp and full sound of the FlyBuds 3, although the bass was a little underwhelming. The well-balanced mid and highs greatly impacted voice quality, and I found that one of its best features. Many earbuds suffer from disconnecting issues, but the FlyBuds 3’s 5.0 sports Bluetooth never disconnected or went out of sync, and in my books, that is a big plus.

An important factor is the IP rating because I love to use my earbuds in the shower, and the Tribit FlyBuds 3 Waterproof Bluetooth Headphones IPX8 rating passed with flying colors. The easy-to-work touch controls are nice, and playing, pausing, and taking calls were very easy.


If you love your earbuds and spend most of the day using them, then you will love the Tribit FlyBuds 3’s eight-hour playtime and hundred hours charge capacity in its larger charge case.

Excellent audio clarity and great overall performanceUnderperforming bass
Exceptional battery lifeIt has no app, meaning no EQ
IPX8 waterproof ratingNo ANC Feature
Extremely comfortable fit
