July 1st, 2008 by BallerHouse


If you’re renting your place or don’t want to drop big bucks on a custom shower sound system, we’ve got the perfect waterproof MP3 speaker for you: the Juke Tower. The fully-waterproof Juke Tower comes with an embedded LED clock as well as a track display, and it’s controlled by an easy-to-use top menu panel. To hook up your tunes, you connect your own USB drive to the speaker, and it will play for up to 12 hours using three AA batteries. And when you’re not using the Juke Tower in the shower, you can bring it outside to the pool. Priced at $130, the Juke Tower is one of the more affordable shower sound systems on the market. Unless you’re content putting the old boom box right outside the shower door.

The buttons are intuitive enough that you can control the Samsung Pebble from your pocket, and the player loads easily by USB.

Why it’s baller: the price makes the Samsung S2 practically disposable. When it gets scratched or you get tired of the color, toss it to a friend.
