Best Shower Heads 2019 with Top Model Reviews
Below you’ll find 2019’s best showerheads.
If your current shower head is showing signs of rust, weak-pressure, or if it’s just plain boring … you’re going to LOVE our top-rated shower heads of the year!
Best Shower Head on the Market
To start our list of the best shower heads of 2019, we have the Hansgrohe 27474001, our #1 rated, best shower head on the market.
The Hansgrohe 27474001 earns our highest regards because it is the industry leader when it comes to quality, price, and performance.
If your master bathroom contains an old, ugly, worn-out shower head, the Hansgrohe 27474001 will surely give your bathroom the 180 degrees turn around it needs.
This Hansgrohe model has 180 easy-to-clean silicon nozzles, that work together via the RainAir Spray Mode, which infuses water droplets with air.
This process leads to a more relaxing shower experience, with water droplets that feel lighter, fuller, and softer.
Best Shower Head Under $200
Moen S6320EP Velocity
If you’re looking for 2019’s best shower head for under $200, you’re going to FALL IN LOVE with the Moen S6320EP Velocity.
First, and important to note, this shower head from Moen has an 8″ face, that is covered with 100 easy-to-clean silicon nozzles. These combine to create a blanket-like water coverage, that can’t be replicated with cheaper & smaller shower heads.
Also, another benefit, the Moen S6320EP is fantastic when it comes to saving water. Due to its design, you won’t have to worry about weak water pressure, and at the same time, you’ll save on your water bills while helping the environment. Sounds great right?
Another plus, this Moen S6320EP comes in 3 awesome finishes:
- Brushed Nickel
- Oil-Rubbed Bronze
One last thing, the chrome finish is the under $200 option. The other finishes are slightly more expensive.
Best Shower Head Under $100
Ana Bath SS5450CBN
If you’re looking for the best shower head for under $100, we think the Ana Bath SS5450CBN is an absolute home run.
The Ana Bath SS5450CBN is a fixed + handheld showerhead, that really goes above and beyond when it comes to the showering experience.
The best thing about this shower head is – both heads actually – since they come stocked with 5 spray patterns each:
- Rain + Massage
- Bubbling + Rain
Also, we love that the nozzles are made with easy-to-clean silicon. This is a MUST HAVE feature if you’re spending around $100.
Another feature worth noting is the 3-way diverter. This is a key component that helps the Ana Bath SS5450CBN dispense water through the handheld showerhead, fixed shower head, and both simultaneously.
Ultimately, with the Ana Bath brushed nickel shower head, you’re getting an incredible value for the price.
Best Budget Shower Head
If you’re a … what we like to call, “A Value Hunter” … look no further than the Speakman S-2005-HB.
Speakman is among the best and most traditional brands of shower heads, and this model specifically is quite popular, from gyms to hotels and most standard lodging places. The S-2005-HB is quite compact, a fine wall-mounted shower head.
It includes the Anystream 360 patented technology that enables a full body spray spread of water and versatile performance for up to 5 different adjustments of spray patterns, including a focused strong massage jet spray.
The adjustment can be set easily with the leveler. As it is made of sturdy durable plastic, the price is quite much more accessible than metallic models.
It is a 2 to 2.5 gpm water consumption and includes a limited lifetime warranty.
Best Cheap Shower Head
If you’re looking for the best cheap shower head of 2019, we love the Kohler K-10282-CP.
The Kohler K-10282-CP brings you industry leading quality from one of the biggest shower head manufacturers today, without breaking the bank. This model is a single function wall-mounted shower head, and it provides strong water pressure from its focused jets on its 5.5-inch head.
Important to note, even though this Kohler shower head is cheap in price, that doesn’t mean it sacrifices quality when it comes to spray patterns. In fact, the Kohler K-10282-CP has “Katalyst Air-Induction Technology,” which infuses each droplet with air, making them heavier, and better for retaining water temperature.
The Kohler K-10282-CP comes in three different brushed metallic finishes: nickel, chrome, and bronze. Lastly, and worth mentioning, the Kohler K-10282-CP has a 2.5 gpm flow rate.
Best Bluetooth Shower Head
It’s tough to see in the picture, but this shower head from Kohler has a removable Bluetooth speaker that syncs with (R)-enabled devices including smartphones, mp3 players, laptops, and tablets. It has a range of up to 32 feet.
The water-resistant bluetooth speaker pops in and out of the showerhead, and is charged using micro USB, that also comes with the shower head (but isn’t pictured).
How does it sound though? Glad you asked. The bass on this speaker, and clarity, both top notch of the industry.
Lastly, and also important to note, is that this Kohler K-9245-CP doesn’t sacrifice shower quality, for sound quality.
It has an impressive 60 angled nozzles that provide a full range of coverage.
Best Rain Shower Head
If you’re looking for the best rain shower head of 2019, not including the more expensive models we’ve already reviewed above (Hansgrohe/Moen), you’ll love the AKDY AZ6021.
This elegant and minimalist rain shower comes with a sleek square design, all made in plastic, making it also quite affordable, even though it is finished on polished chrome to make it even more refined and impressive for modern decor sets.
The shower head is 8 squared inch wide and works with a normal water flow stream, and while you can adjust it to work on higher pressure, you can handle the head to provide a specific angle as the stream is not weak and can produce direct straight jets.
Above all, this model is also an economic one, with 2.5 gpm of water consumption.
Best Wall-Mounted Shower Head
While this Culligan model is one of the most accessible of our list, it offers some of the best features that no other models here have for you. If you live in cities where water is not that trust-worthy even for showering, a good model with a filtering system is a must-have.
The Culligan WSH-C125 model already comes with a filter system embedded in the shower head, and it will filter excessive chlorine from the water, scale and many other impurities and toxins.As a plus, this shower head has 5 different spray patterns, from a powerful jet stream to a smooth full body spray.
After 10000 gallons of water consumed, you have to replace the filter for a new one, so around every 6 months is time for a new filter. This is a standard time ratio considering most filter available in the market.You can buy filter separately and attach them to any shower head.
You can check our extra section after the reviews to know how to get a filter attachment and how they work.
Best Dual Shower Head
Ana Bath Anti-Clog Dual Shower Head
If you’re looking for 2019’s best dual shower head, look no further than this Ana Bath Dual Showerhead.
When you’re looking for a multi-head shower, there are 2 key points to keep in mind.
First, you have to make sure that the fixed shower head is top quality. With this Ana Bath dual shower head system, we love that this shower head has 5 different spray modes, and as its name suggests, they’re anti-clog nozzles.
Who likes to clean limescale and hard water deposits? Not me. Probably not you either.
Second, and also important to note, you have to make sure the handheld shower head portion is also the best on the market. With this Ana Bath model, we’re happy to confirm that the handheld portion of the shower system is the best you’ll find around.
How many dual shower heads have 5 spray modes? Not many. Then, out of all the dual shower heads on the market today, how many can say their handheld portion ALSO has 5 spray modes? The answer would be … even less.
Best High Flow Shower Head
Aqua Elegante 3 in.
If you’re looking for 2019’s best high flow shower head on the market, you’ve hit the jackpot with the Aqua Elegante 3″ Shower Head.
The 3″ shower head from Aqua Elegante earns our top spot because of its unique ability to boost the pressure in your shower. So how does it accomplish this?
Glad you asked. The key is the removable flow restrictor.
Once you remove the flow restrictor … BOOM. Your shower is going to feel brand new. This 3″ Aqua Elegante packs quite the punch.
We also love that the Aqua Elegante shower head is super easy to install. Simply twist off your old showerhead, and twist on the Aqua Elegante. Took less than 3min. Amazingly quick for such a huge improvement!
Best Overhead Shower Head
SR SUN RISE Ultra Thin 12 in.
Our favorite overhead shower of 2019 goes to the SR SUN RISE Ultra Thin 12″ Rainfall Shower Head.
If the Hansgrohe 27474001 (“The Best Shower Head on the Market”), was too expensive for you, the SR SUN RISE shower head is an excellent alternative.
Right off the bat, you’ll notice the high quality 304 stainless steel, that is ten layer chrome plated. This creates an incredibly modern, and sleek look to your bathroom.
We love that the SR SUN RISE shower head is coated in nozzles that are made with silicon. This makes them super easy to clean. This is important because you want to avoid limescale and hard water build-up.
Also, we love that this overhead shower head has an adjustable arm (not pictured). This is important for creating the perfect angle for your shower set up.
Most Powerful Shower Head
Speakman Anystream S-2252
If you’re looking for the most powerful shower head on the market in 2019, the Speakman Anystream S-2252 takes the cake.
We’ve reviewed other high flow shower heads, but the Speakman is the most powerful, in our view, due to its superior coverage. Its’ superior coverage is provided by the 48 individual streams on the 6 adjustable plungers, and head face.
This Speakman Anystream S-2252 has 3 different spray modes. The 3 modes are “Intense,” “Rain,” and “Flood.” The “Intense” mode was our favorite in particular. This created the most powerful shower we’ve experienced in 2019.
Best Waterpik Shower Head
Waterpik FlexNeck – with Power Spray
Waterpik has been making quality shower heads for over 11 years, and in 2019, they’re still one of the hottest brands around.
By popular demand, we’ve selected our favorite Waterpik showerhead of 2019, the Waterpik FlexNeck in chrome.
Waterpik has a TON of options when it comes to shower heads, but the FlexNeck in chrome reigns supreme due to its rare versatility.
The 18″ FlexNeck does a fantastic job at bending to the angle you desire, whether that’s above like a rain shower head, or maybe to the side when you’re cleaning your shower walls.
To add to its versatility, this Waterpik flexible shower head comes with 6 awesome spray modes. Our favorites … we have 2. First, is the “Full Body + Power Spray,” which is the strongest, and widest coverage. Second, we loved the “Water Saving Trickle” spray mode, as it’s perfect for quick showers designed to save energy.
Lastly, and worth noting, this Waterpik showerhead comes with a Limited Lifetime Factory Warranty, so that’s a huge plus in our books as well.
Best Moen Shower Head
Moen has been a leader in the shower industry for over 14 years since it’s birth in 2004.
Today, in 2019, they’re still as popular as ever.
Our favorite showerhead from Moen, this year, is the Moen Magnetix Handheld Shower Head. Most handheld showerheads today do not come with magnets to hold them firmly in place, but rather, they come with hostlers, that you have to lift and slide in place.
The Moen Magnetix saves you the hassle of trying to re-rack your shower head while there’s shampoo in your hair, and your eyes closed. Simply reach out in the general vicinity of the base, then … SNAP! You’re back in place.
Also, and worth noting, this Moen Magnetix comes with 6 different spray modes, making this magnetic shower head wonderfully customizable.
Best Delta Shower Head
Delta 3-Spray Touch Clean – Venetian Bronze
Delta is no stranger to the shower industry, so to make our list more complete, we had to select our favorite of 2019!
This year, we love Delta’s 3-Spray Touch-Clean Shower Head.
To start, this Delta shower head comes in 7 fantastic finishes:
- Venetian Bronze
- Aged Pewter
- Champagne Bronze
- Chrome/Polished Brass
- Polished Brass
If you’re having trouble matching your current shower faucet finish with your new shower head, this is a PERFECT option. With the wide variety of finishes, you’re sure to find something that goes well with your bathroom design.
Also, and worth mentioning, this Delta shower head comes equipped with 3-spray modes: Full Body, Massaging, and Drenching.
Lastly, this Delta shower head has a standard flow rate of 2.5 gpm.

What To Look For
Spray & Coverage
Typically, you’ll want to look for a powerful spray (around 2.5 GPM), and full-body coverage. This can be achieved with most shower heads with spray faces > 7 inches or so.
To properly access a shower head’s “overall design” its best to ask yourself things like:
- How easy is it to use?
- How easy is it to clean?
- Is it heavy, or lightweight?
- How does it look?
When selecting a showerhead, it’s important to consider it’s quality, as you don’t want to end up with a dud, when you were looking for a stud.
To evaluate quality, ask yourself:
- What is it made out of?
- Is it solid construction? Or, hollow?
- How “thick” is its metal or material?
Ease Of Installation
The final thing you should consider when selecting a shower head in 2019 is its “ease of installation.”
Before you purchase, it’s best to know what you’re getting yourself into. For example, going from an old wall-mounted shower head to a new wall-mounted shower head will take less than 5 minutes. No biggie.
On the other hand, going from an old wall-mounted shower head to a new ceiling-mounted showerhead will probably take a couple of hours, and may even require the help of a professional.
