Fugoo TOUGH Portable Bluetooth Speaker Review: Incredible Sound You Can Take Outdoors

Trying to find the best portable speaker you can take anywhere? The Fugoo tough portable speaker may just be the one – it promises to deliver 40 hours of music, true 360 degree sound while being one of the toughest speakers out there. It also offers Bluetooth connectivity (or wired) to devices such as an iPhone. I’ve been using the speaker for some time now, so for my review I’m going to give you an overview of the speaker itself and my thoughts.

First of all I had no idea who Fugoo were, but they certainly deserve to be more known because what they have come up with here is certainly impressive in terms of features, protection, and speaker design. If you want a speaker to withstand just about any outdoor adventure, this is going to tick all the boxes. The speaker is completely 100% waterproof, shock, mud, and snow proof. On top of that it delivers 40 hours of music playback, which will take you far between charges, and boasts true 360 degree sound.Fugoo TOUGH Rugged Portable Waterproof Bluetooth Speaker

I had two particularly memorable moments with this speaker where I was extremely impressed. The first was when I actually took the product out for the first time, and held the speaker – the build quality of this speaker is right up there. The speaker feels solid, and because of the materials used which include fibre-reinforced resin, and solid aluminium I certainly felt if I ever dropped the speaker, or it somehow fell it wouldn’t break. Nothing at all seems to be made from plastic or cheaper materials, even the speaker grill which reveals the speaker design inside.

Audio is insanely good in both sound quality, and in volume.

Most importantly – how does it sound? Well this brings me to my second moment I was impressed, as soon as I played a song from the speaker I was pleasantly surprised with its quality. This speaker is insanely loud for its size, however it doesn’t compromise sound quality. I paired my iPhone to the speaker, and played a range of songs from Apple Music from all different genres, and no matter the song the speaker was consistently impressive.

The sound was clear, punchy bass, and overall provided a great music experience. This speaker is easily one of the loudest portable speakers I’ve come across. I’m still wondering how Fugoo managed to pull this off particularly when the speaker is 100% waterproof – most waterproof speakers drown their sound out due to the need to make it water tight.
