If you are one of those who like to sing while taking the bath, you’ll be pleased to know that you don’t have to do it alone, but you can do duets with Alexa. In the framework of the CES 2020 Las Vegas, the manufacturer of products for the home Kohler will present two speakers smart for your shower head Moxie.
The models BT Speaker and the AI Speaker -for the latter, compatible with Alexa – slide through an opening with the shape of a cone in the shower head Moxie, which is surrounded by nozzles through which the water flows.
The speakers that come with the stamp of the manufacturer of audio equipment Harman Kardon, are designed to compensate for the white noise that is generated when the shower is in operation. In addition, they are kept in place thanks to a magnetic coupling system and certification IPX67 water resistance.
Both models have control buttons for touch, that allow you to make adjustments while you’re bathing.
Version BT Speaker offers a maximum playback time of five to seven hours, if you use up to 70 per cent of volume. In both, the model compatible with Alexa have a performance of up to five hours at the same level. Any way, both include a base wireless charging.
Almost as if it were an Echo…
The speaker is compatible with the Alexa set up and managed with the mobile application Konnect from Kohler. When you have paired the speaker with Alexa, you can use it the same way you would with a device Echo or Echo Dot.
In this way, you can use traditional voice commands, Alexa questions about news, weather, sports results or even to chat or use any other skill that you have downloaded. You’ll also be able to control smart devices in your home that are compatible.
However, the speaker Kohler with features of artificial intelligence will be ready to play your favorite songs while you’re in the shower, a task that the Echo Dot is not able to perform.
Unlike the model compatible with Alexa, the horn BT is connected via Bluetooth with a mobile app separate, which allows you to manage modes and settings.
Availability and values
The speakers will be available in the course of 2020. When you release the dial, the speaker with artificial intelligence, will sell for $159 dollars individually or $229 with the shower head Moxie. In both, the BT Speaker will have a value of $99 or $159 dollars if you buy it with Moxie.
Best of all is that not only can you use it in the shower, so if you like the idea of having a horn smart with the support of Harmon Kardon, you can use any of the models as speakers mobile with a base that comes included.
