BELIEVE IT OR not, the innovation of bathroom tech products meant is advancing like never before. Everything from electric razors to toothbrushes, to bidet attachments, is getting easier and more intuitive to use. New to 2024 is the latest bathroom product to get the tech treatment: shower heads.

Like the name suggests, a smart shower head does more than just get you clean. Smart shower heads are more of a luxury than a necessity, but some models (like our best overall hai Smart Showerhead) helps taper water consumption—which, in return, can cut down your water bill. Other smart shower heads allow for Goldilocks temperature and pressure that likens to a five-star hotel. Then there are smart shower heads with Bluetooth speakers, which are just plain fun and make an early wake-up ten times more enjoyable. And last, but certainly not least, are filtered shower heads that use innovative filter designs to help reduce the amount of unwanted chemicals that could exist in a local water supply.

What to Look for in a Shower Head

Spending big on a a shower head can be a worthy investment. However, there are a few key factors to consider to ensure you choose a shower head that is compatible with your needs and preferences.

Water Pressure

Consider the flow rate of the shower head to ensure a comfortable and satisfying shower experience. Look for shower heads with adjustable settings to customize the flow rate and pressure according to your preferences.

Installation and Compatibility

Opt for a shower head that is easy to install and compatible with your existing shower arm and plumbing fixtures. Check whether the shower head comes with necessary installation hardware, or if you'll need to purchase extras such as a wrench or plumber's tape. (Most options on this list can be installed without tools in 15 minutes or less.)

Build quality

Choose a shower head made from durable materials like stainless steel, ABS plastic, or brass to ensure longevity and resistance to corrosion. Look for shower heads with a sturdy construction and reliable seals to prevent leaks and ensure long-term performance.


Consider the overall design of the shower head to complement your bathroom decor and personal style. Aesthetic isn't the most important factor, but surely it matters. With so many styles, finishes, and shapes to choose from, including fixed, handheld, rainfall, or massage shower heads, it's worth finding one that suits you.

Filtration System

Not all shower heads have a filtration system, but for the ones that do it's important to keep you eyes out for certifications from reputable organizations. Groups like NSF International and the Water Quality Association (WQA) are trustworthy. Filtered shower heads can help remove remove hard water minerals, chemicals, pollutants, heavy metals, and even pesticides from the water

Smart Showerhead

Hai is the brand to get right now. The Smart Showerhead is a game-changer for an at-home spa-like experience. It has a spray controller slider that ranges from a hard stream to a soft mist. The LED light on the handle will turn green once the water reaches your preferred temperature, so you never have to guess the temp by dipping your leg or hand in the shower (if you don't set the temp, the LED will turn on when the water is lukewarm).

The hai is also eco-friendly. The shower head is built with WaterSense certification, which, according to hai, saves up to 30 percent on annual water use. Then there's the coordinating app that allows you to read data on your water usage. Metrics like time spent, gallons used and saved, energy used are tracked. From the app, you can program your temperature (like mentioned above), but also water usage limit. The LED on the hai will turn red once you've used the programmed number of gallons you prefer to use during your shower.

The best part about the hai overall? It has an insanely easy installation. You might need some plumbers tape for install, but other than that the entire process is painless and takes less than 20 minutes.

Some might scoff at a $200 shower head, but really this is an investment that can help you save water while also providing a ton of comfort (and fun). Start here before you look anywhere else.

Jolie The Filtered Showerhead

We first covered the Jolie back in our 2022 Grooming Awards. Our positive reviews on the filtered shower head still holds true today. For starters, the Jolie has a beautiful minimalist design. It's compact, lightweight (under 2 pounds) and comes in several colors. On the inside is one of the best filtration systems you can find in a shower head. We're talking a filter blend of KDF-55 and calcium sulfite, which exceeds NSF-177 certifications for shower filters. KDF-55 is an agent that removes and reduces chlorine and heavy metals, and Jolie filters contain more of KDF-55 than any other shower head filter on the market.

The benefits to using such a high powered filtered shower head? Jolie claims its filter can help limit hair shedding and skin irritation. The downside to the Jolie is you have to change the filter every 90 days. Each filter also costs a little over 30 bucks. However, you can get discounts by opting in on subscription plans.

If you are living in an area where the water quality is suspect, then the Jolie is definitely worth trying. You might see some health improvements, but really the biggest payoff is peace of mind.

Moen U by Moen Digital Shower Controller

Those looking for a truly one-of-a-kind smart shower experience might want more than a shower head. This Moen allows you to control your shower in three ways: voice control through smart speakers, the Moen shower App, or an in-shower controller. You can create up to 12 personalized presets, including name, greeting, outlets used, water temperature, shower timer, and notifications.

We like how the device features a “warm up and pause” function for potential water savings. Another nice features is the Moen U comes with a backup battery pack, ensuring your shower continues to work even if power is lost. There's a bit of a setup process with this device, and the cost is pretty high, but if you're looking for a futuristic experience to really take your shower to the next level then this is worth a look.
