Top Pick: RainSpa® Microban® 2-in-1 Combination Showerhead | $30 | Bed Bath & Beyond
A good shower can be the ultimate oasis for a challenging day, and we’ve all had our fair share of those. Personally, I prefer a handheld option for comfort and versatility, but everyone is different.
Tons of reviewers have spilled the tea on their opinions of countless showerheads available for online purchase. At Kinja Deals, we’ve combed through those reviews and compiled a list based on water pressure, flow, and usability, among other factors. Let’s get to it!
Best With Speaker: Kohler Moxie Showerhead + Wireless Speaker
“I’m well aware that inviting Alexa—and therefore Amazon—into my shower is probably not-so-smart. Nevertheless, I love shower karaoke and my bathroom Bluetooth speakers weren’t cutting it. Some fell down off the tile wall because of their weak suction cups. Others sounded muffled because of the shower curtain. So it was in this exasperated state that I installed the Kohler Moxie Showerhead + Wireless Speaker... Pairing the device to your phone is also easy—it’s the same process as pairing any other Bluetooth speaker, though you can also go through the Kohler Konnect app. (I didn’t find the app itself added much to the experience.)
Once I enabled Amazon Alexa, it was very easy to ask Alexa to play a certain artist or playlist. Sometimes it struggled with less common names—I’ve yet to find a digital assistant that identifies Mitski correctly 100% of the time—but for the most part, Alexa got the job done... Design-wise, the Moxie is sleek and inoffensive. At $200, this is the priciest showerhead that I, a cheapskate, have ever used. But if you’re willing to splurge just a little bit, or can split the cost with roommates/a significant other? The Kohler Moxie is actually a convenient way to get a nicer showerhead and a good quality shower speaker in one easily installed package.” - Victoria Song, Gizmodo.
With built-in microban technology, this RainSpa® Microban® 2-in-1 Combination Showerhead comes with 30 variable pulse settings and a three-way diverter. The product has a chrome finish and a wide face that measures six inches in diameter. As a bonus, this head is Watersense certified and will conserve natural resources.
This is the second RainSpa 2-in -one showerhead that I have purchased from BB&B. The first one lasted over ten years and was still working well but needed replacement because of natural buildup from hard water. Easy setup, work well, and a great value.” - Vic, Bed, Bath & Beyond Reviewer
Best for Low Flow: Niagara Conservation Earth Massage
The Niagra Conservation Earth Massage fixed showerhead is well-known among shoppers and home renovation crews alike for its performance and affordability. This feature is perfect for those worried about reducing their water consumption and saving on utilities for the household as a whole.
“We average about 6,300 gallons of month for a family of 4. I replaced both bathroom shower heads with two Niagara 1.25 gallon per minute heads and put in a 1 gallon per minute aerator on the kitchen sink. Grand total invested = $22....
First bill (only used the heads for 20 days of the bill) we cut our water consumption down to 4,400 gallons! Saved $23 on our water bill. So they paid themselves off in less than a month. Plus we can feel good for saving water and the energy to involved with treating it.
Little things add up.” - awesomeness, Amazon contributor
Best for High Pressure: HO2ME Chrome Powerful Shower Spray
High-pressure showers are a great way to unwind after a long, stressful day. If you’re looking to relax after a hard day or workout, this showerhead is great for providing muscle pain relief and creating an overall soothing experience.
“If you like water pressure this is the shower head. I pretty much just powerwashed myself and it feels great. It’s intense!” - Tyler S., Amazon contributor.
“Looks great and works even better. We have struggled with poor water pressure for years. I have tried other shower heads for a modest improvement. Decided to try this due to the price and the ratings. It works AMAZING. Water pressure in the shower now feels like it should. Previously I felt like the Seinfeld episode with the low flow shower heads. It was actually difficult to rinse shampoo out. No more. I liked it so much I immediately bought another. Both arrived way earlier than expected.” - Brad Clark, Amazon contributor.
Best from Consumer Reports: Delta Traditional Collection
Consumer Reports used the Delta Traditional Collection Touch-Clean in a lab test and discovered that this product has a number of amazing features. To start, its settings can be navigated very easily. It’s easy to install and has an intense full-body spray. The showerhead is designed so that calcium and lime build-up can be cleaned effortlessly.
“Have 2 of these shower heads—they rock! We’re on a well and the 60 PSI water pressure is more than sufficient for this shower head. Great coverage, low water usage, plenty of water—easy to clean by rubbing your figure across the nubs.” - Howard, Amazon Contributor
Best Luxury: PULSE Shower Spas Splash Shower System
Easy to install, the Splash shower system comes with multiple functions, guaranteed to keep you feeling clean and invigorated. You have the option to keep the showerhead in place or use the handheld wand. The flow rate is 2.5 gallons per minute and has a three-year manufacturer’s warranty. Make pretend that you’re at the spa, right within the comfort of your own home.
Best With Hose: Waterpik Powerpulse Handheld
If you can’t be bothered with dual showerheads or rainfall showerheads, and prefer something nice and simple, the Waterpik Powerpulse Handheld is your best bet at an easy $40. Reviewers at Bed, Bath, and Beyond rated this a solid 4 out of 5. It has six spray modes and two turbo massage jets to massage your skin while you’re getting clean. And if you don’t clean your bathroom often (which you should!!), it has anti-clog nozzles so grime won’t block your good time.
Best RV: Oxygenics Brushed Nickel Body Spa
Looking for a showerhead that’s perfect for a compact RV shower? This Oxygenics Brushed Nickel Shower Kit uses technology to amplify water pressure and widen coverage while minimizing your water usage. As a result, your shower time will be reduced. It’s also made with non-stick internal parts to prevent mineral buildup.
Best Rainfall: Waterpik® 7-Spray Showerhead in Chrome
With seven different spray options, this fixed mount Waterpik® showerhead in chrome is a really affordable, high-performance showerhead option. This product is Watersense certified for proper water conservation and has great flow, including a massage feature.
“One of the best products I’ve ever received the flow of the water through this shower head is so relaxing.” - diehard22, Bed, Bath & Beyond Contributor
