I thought this was a great concept: it was easy to install, looks nice, and the shower-head function works like a shower-head should. It's easy to operate and the way the speaker is held in place magnetically is pretty ingenious. I was able to synch it quickly to both an iPad 2 and an iPhone 5. I can't really speak to battery life, although I haven't had to charge it yet after using it for about 3-4 hours so far. The mono sound quality is acceptable and about on par with that produced by a decent clock radio.
My main complaint, and it's a big one for me, is that the speaker JUST CAN'T GET LOUD ENOUGH. Even with the volume cranked all the way up on the iPad or iPhone, the speaker doesn't produce sufficient volume to cut through the water noise when the shower's running. Outside the shower I compared the relative volume of the Moxie speaker with the built-in iPhone speaker and, while the audio quality of the Moxie was much clearer, had better fidelity and was generally nicer...
Most of the reviews are from relatively new owners. I loved mine too when it was new. After a year and a half the volume has dropped to the point where I can no longer even hear the words (if you ever could with AC/DC!). When new, my wife complained it was too loud in the next room and worried about the neighbors complaining. To be clear: the same songs purchased from iTunes, played by the same iPhone 4, played thru the same iTunes Ap, listened to over and over, just getting quieter and quieter. Really wish I could find a resolution as I loved it when it was louder, but very disappointed now.
Update: New iPhone 6, reloaded the Ap and it keeps getting quieter. Honestly don't bother with it anymore. Shower head works great, but so did my old one.
Good Sound! Not super loud, but its perfect for some listening while in the shower. Looks great! Has a great water flow.
