The Fugoo Tough will keep making beautiful music wherever you take it
Most ‘rugged’ portable speakers are like school bullies: noisy, unpleasant to listen to and not as tough as they think they are. The Fugoo Tough, on the other hand, not only sounds beautiful but
it can also survive environments that would make Ray Mears look for the nearest Airbnb. It’s sandproof, snowproof and waterproof, and has been tested for drops up to 183cm. It also makes all types of music sound lovely thanks to its two tweeters, two woofers and two passive radiators
(for the non-audiophiles, these help distinguish the high-, mid- and low-range frequencies to make all music sound exactly as it should). There are mounts available to attach it to just about anything, while support for Siri and Google Now mean you can get weather updates while mountain biking or find out how much the world weighs while abseiling. And then there's its 40-hour battery life – for comparison, the next best battery for a Bluetooth speaker currently available is 20 hours, and that’s at half volume. The waterproof remote (available separately)
even doubles as a bottle opener, safely securing the Fugoo Tough’s place on our next trip.
