Seattle Backpackers FUGOO Tough Review
FUGOO Tough Speaker Review
  • What impressed me most was the durability of the FUGOO Tough.
  • The speaker didn’t move once and again survived any beatings I could give it.
  • This speaker is one of the best pieces of outdoor equipment I have ever had the pleasure of using and if you love you music and your adventures, this speaker is worth every penny.

Featured Review: FUGOO Portable Bluetooth Speaker
  • FUGOO Bluetooth Speaker lasts a whopping 40 hours.
  • And I can say after using it for about 2 weeks now, that it lasts longer than that...
  • It’s a pretty lightweight speaker, especially when you consider how big the speaker is and how big the battery is.
  • I’d have to say it’s got better sound, and louder sound without getting distorted, than most of the other Bluetooth speakers I’ve reviewed recently.

Techlicious -- FUGOO Bluetooth Speaker
  • Of the many hundreds of Bluetooth speakers on display at CES and beyond, the new FUGOO line caught our attention with two key features: very good audio quality and a singular design concept.
  • ... you can easily switch the cover to change the color or texture, add additional rugged protection, or make it mountable.
  • This versatility plus the great sound it produces make the FUGOO the best Bluetooth speaker we saw at CES.

  • ... FUGOO is the brand to watch in 2014...
  • Despite the non-stop din of the crowd, the FUGOO Tough speaker we demoed delivered booming bass with richly balanced highs and mids.

iPhoneLife -- FUGOO’s Waterproof Speaker Puts Fashion First
  • The FUGOO speaker was a winner of the iPhone Life Best of CES award last week in Las Vegas.
  • I love that its rugged design comes standard, and the option to attach the jacket of your choosing is sweet icing on the cake.
  • ... the FUGOO speaker also belts out absolutely amazing sound, with multi-directional drivers on all four sides and large, passive bass radiators for an immersive 360-degree, full-spectrum audio experience that creates a sound that is worthy of a speaker twice the size.

CNET -- FUGOO Bluetooth speaker family
  • The FUGOO Bluetooth speaker rocks a unique design that aims to please everyone from the outdoor enthusiast to the average Joe.
  • For a device that can withstand a 5.5-foot drop, it's pretty darn light.
  • FUGOO states that its toughest case is "virtually indestructible." Sounds like a Torture Test challenge to me!

SlashGear -- FUGOO Bluetooth Speakers pack Siri and Google Now support: Hands-on
  • We auditioned the FUGOO speakers next to their better-known rivals, and it clearly outperformed them...
  • We're also quite taken with FUGOO's accessories for the speakers, which show a little more imagination than is typical...
  • FUGOO is quoting up to forty hours battery life, too, and a full recharge in around 3.5 hours; if that's true, it'll mean around double what most of the competition can do, if not more.

The Verge -- FUGOO's modular Bluetooth speakers go from stylish to indestructible just by swapping cases
  • FUGOO’s speakers set themselves apart with a two-part design made of an inner "core" — the actual speaker — with a swappable, durable outer "jacket" to protect it.
  • The bottoms of the Sport and Tough jackets have a spot to connect one of three mounts which let the speaker attach to a bike, backpack, tripod, or even strap on to something like a tree.
  • FUGOO is also making a wearable, fully waterproof Bluetooth smart remote with a lanyard and watch strap that can control your music and even activate Siri or Google Now — but the killer feature is the bottle opener on its back.

  • Now here’s my favorite spec of these new speakers. FUGOO touts that these speakers will last about 40 hours of continuous playback, and that’s at 50-percent loudness. That is insane.
  • ... it does support Bluetooth SMART for wireless remote control with Google Now. Now that’s pretty cool.

  • For instance, you can get a jacket that aims for style and then put on a different jacket that aims for ruggedness.

  • And although it’s perfectly suited for home, beach, office, ironman challenge, snowstorm or hurricane, FUGOO’s durable nature makes it perfect for in-car use, particularly by luddites who will throw it into the glove compartment, let it roll around on the dash and effectively treat the device in the less-than-delicate manner for which it was designed.

  • FUGOO's $199 Style and the $229 Sport and Tough are all basically the same speaker. The trick is, you can slide the cover off and replace it.
  • They're all waterproof to 3 feet for 30 minutes, and the design is drop-tested 20 times from 6 feet.
  • The Sport includes a wearable Bluetooth remote with a bottle opener on the bottom. Mmmm ... beer, a pool and Bluetooth. Does it get any better?
