Kohler Launches New Rainhead Design for Moxie Showerhead + Wireless Speaker
Rainhead design adds a new level of customization to the integrated delivery of water and music through Moxie
KOHLER, Wis. – Feb. 4, 2014 – After an overwhelmingly positive reception of the Kohler Moxie showerhead + wireless speaker, Kohler Co. introduces a rainhead configuration for the showerhead and speaker combo. An increased consumer demand for differentiated and personalized showering experiences brought the Kohler Moxie Rainhead to life. The original design's ability to stream audio through Bluetooth*-enabled devices introduced the opportunity to make showering a more personalized experience. Now, the new Kohler Moxie Rainhead design allows for even more options.
Moxie Rainhead features ninety angled nozzles and utilizes air-induction technology to maximize the combination of air and water to deliver a full, rich spray. The rainhead design pairs well with the Kohler HydroRail shower column to provide an elevated showering experience. Configuring the rainhead on a shower column allows users to easily reach, remove, and reconnect the wireless magnetic speaker inside the showerhead.
Kohler debuts the new showerhead – available in White, Polished Chrome, Brushed Nickel, and Oil-Rubbed Bronze finishes – at the 2014 Kitchen & Bath Industry Show.
"The number of people using technology in the bathroom continues to grow," says Kohler performance showering product manager Leslie Bronson. "We want to provide product options that will allow people to customize that technology, and integrating the delivery of water and music is a great way to do that."
About the Kohler Moxie Showerhead:
The Moxie showerhead syncs with any Bluetooth-enabled device—smartphones and mp3 players—and streams music, news and more directly into the shower. But the fun doesn't stop there; the speaker pod can be removed for enjoyment on the go, throughout the rest of the bathroom and beyond. "Smartphones are transforming the way people access music," Bronson says. "Half of all smartphone users stream music directly from their devices. The Moxie Showerhead takes accessibility to a whole new level. It offers a convenient, stylish sound boost. It's like having your own mobile DJ."
• Audio Control is managed through the paired Bluetooth-enabled device
• The on/off button on the speaker includes a light that changes color to indicate when the speaker is paired and when the battery needs to be charged.
• A lithium battery** provides on average seven hours of playtime; recharging the speaker is easy with the USB cord provided.
• Redocking the speaker capsule is simple. A strong magnet located in the dock's base maintains a secure hold.
