    Extremely happy, I was down to the last minute again, I was having a party at my house. I didn't decide what to do for entertainment so I decided to go to Best Buy and get another Bose® SoundLink® Bluetooth® speaker III I have one and I love it but I didn't think it would be loud enough to have it outdoors for a party. I saw their was a Sony Representative their and I asked her what is the loudest portable speaker you have and she showed me Fugoo XL Water resistant speaker OH MY GOODNESS JUST GREAT. I am very happy

    I use 5 days a week, to listen to my ipod. (Plug in style). I have used the bluetooth about 20 to 30 feet no problem (not sure of range). Produces great sound with talking capabilities telling you when battery life is half and low (or by pushing the power button quickly will give capacity. Next I love that I can charge my samsung galaxy s4 or ipod at the same time while listening to tunes. My phone at 40% will charge in about an hour and half, and my Ipod dead will charge fully in same time while you listen to it and it will not drain the speakers battery down that much, I would guess about a quarter, but not positive. I bought as a try it or buy it. I love it. Thanks Best Buy for you customer service.

    Love this product! Long Battery life and quality sound! We take it everywhere we go! Camping, to the lake, in the barn, and even in the shower! It's loud enough to have a dance party outside, even if it's raining!

    Disappointed

    Posted .

    I have purchased two fugoo style xl speakers. The first one sounded horrible out of the box so I exchanged it (because of the reviews I've read) for the same model. 2nd one out of the box it is missing two of the sticker legs so it wobbles back and forth when playing music. Is this a common thing? When you pay $300 for a speaker you'd think you'd get a quality checked product? Sincerely, Disappointed

    A nice speaker.

    Posted .

    There's a lot of choices out there right now, but this is a very nice addition to my collection of speakers. It has some very decent bass, with neutral mids and highs. It's not overly exaggerated like the Bose Soundlink III and JBL's Xtreme. Bose has a bloated bass and JBL has bumped up bass and enhanced highs. Not bad in either case, just a reference for those who haven't heard them next to each other. The battery life of the Fugoo is a huge selling point, but the water proofing is truly impressive. I have submerged this thing completely under water several times to ensure that its not a gimmick, and it's still impressive to me. It's very durable and hold up really well to drop tests, and the 360 degree sound is a nice experience. It has similar power of the JBL Xtreme, but since it spreads its sound out in four different directions, it makes the speaker sound less powerful. It's misleading because of how it disperses sound, but it's a really nice unit to have. I recommend it to people who don't have a need for ear bleeding listening levels, but want accurate, warm sound. The speakerphone works well and the battery charging feature is decent. It's a little on the heavy side, but it's equivalent to its peers. Fugoo has finally made the carrying straps available too, which has changed the user experience for me.

    Best Bluetooth Speaker to Date

    Posted .

    So, I RV 4 days a week and do at least 100 miles a week biking, surfing, and hanging out with friends at the beach.Tthe crashing surf, and wind means any speaker I was going to buy needs to get louder and clearer than what I am replacing which is the JBL Charge 2. great speaker, just not loud enough and I got caught in the rain miles from home and fried it. I've been reading all the reviews, and narrowed my purchase to the JBL Extreme, the Fugoo XL. and the Megaboom, I also bought but returned the Braven Balance; just not accurate enough and sounded like my kitchen radio even though it got loud. Ultimately I returned all of them and kept the Fugoo XL! Plays loud, nearly distortion free, open 360 degree sound, important because sometimes people in front on the boardwalk can hear me coming and move out of the way, no need to ring a bell! The most important thing though is the sound! Oh, is this speaker special, seriously, the megaboom was the first to be returned once I compared them, so really, it was between the Fugoo XL and the JBL Extreme but the sound, the accurate sound and the depth of the bass to the lowest notes, combined with double the battery life and 3x the distance of the bluetooth was just to much for the JBL to overcome.although the JBL looks cooler with the side passive radiators thumping. Essentially, I kept the Fugoo XL! When in the RV it has all encompassing sound with no extra thump that drums out some of the other octaves of sound; piano's sound like it's live, the bass, accurate, the vocals soft and you can hear the breath of the singer, the highs extend to the extent of hearing; no sizzling other speakers pass off when the volume rises, aka any of the Bose and Sony speakers. Last thing; true stereo separation with no hocus-pocus dsp widening. The left and right channels are on the ends of the speaker totally engulfing the listener. A must buy for those who like accurate, outside, loud room filling music.

    AWESOME Portable Wireless Speaker

    |
    Posted .

    I have had this speaker for a few months now and I Love Love Love this portable wireless speaker. I did a lot of research on portable wireless speakers on the internet and narrowed it down to 3 choices...... Fugoo style XL, Boise (not waterproof), JBL Flip 3 before buying this speaker. Then I wanted to Listen to them before making my purchase so I went to Best Buy and they had all 3 of them. I am the picky type and knew what characteristics I wanted from my new speaker and this Fugoo XL had them all and much more! I wanted a 360 degree sound from a balanced bass, treble, sub-woofer sound like my stereo sound in my living room or a boom box sound..... to be able to use it outside and on the water in the boat (waterproof).......able to charge my cell phone battery at the same time I am listening to my music, a very long lasting battery (35 hours of playtime), small enough to travel with but large enough to be durable and heavy duty to get a GREAT Sound. I also can use it for a speakerphone thru Bluetooth (up to 120 feet) (voice enabled speakerphone) which is an nice extra I didn't count on. So far it has become one of my Favorite things!!!! I love the sound inside my house as well as outside. It Rocks!!!! I listen to Jazz, country, rock and they All sound Great! It also has an "inside" setting and "outside" setting. Also, I would like to add how easy this speaker is to operate. With me being over fifty, I can say it is VERY easy to use. Some of this new tech stuff is over my head. I definitely made the PERFECT choice for my needs. I carry it outside on my deck to listen to while working in the garden or out front when washing the car. When I get a phone call, the music stops and pauses and then resumes after the phone call is finished. I absolutely Love this speaker. If I had to give a complaint for this speaker it would be that it did not come with a strap to carry it around which would make it much more convenient, but they do sell those separately. They say it also has a remote control you can purchase separately, which in my opinion should have been included in the purchase of the speaker as well as a strap, but I just use the buttons on the speaker or my cellphone and have not really missed a remote. It is kinda heavy but still carry's easy but needs to be in my opinion, because it makes it very stable. It will NOT blow away in the wind..trust me!! If you want a 360 degree stereo living room sound to go with you outside on your deck or patio, in the basement, upstairs, in the car, at the beach, in your boat, practically anywhere then you will love this speaker!!!! It is worth every penny of the price I paid for it and time I had to wait for Best Buy to ship it. Actually the store here in town sold out of them, so they ordered me one and it came before its estimated delivery date which was only a few days :) Thank You Best Buy for having this speaker in your store for me try out! It made the difference in my choice!

    Very good, but not the best...

    Posted .

    The Fugoo XL is a great speaker. Sound quality is superb but it seems a bit muffled when compared to something like the JBL Xtreme. It does have 360 degree sound which is nice. I was trying to decide between this speaker and the JBL Xtreme and went with the JBL for several reasons. The Fugoo hits a lower bass note but overall does not go as loud as the JBL or keep its bass at higher levels. Indoors it does a great job but using it outside even when placed in outdoor mode, most bass gets lost and it just can't pump out enough sound to sound very good in an open space. I would still recommend it over most speakers in this category but for me, the JBL Xtreme is just better.

    Impressive Sound

    Posted .

    I was looking for a Bluetooth sound system for around the house. I wasn't sure I wanted to spend the money for a high dollar unit but wanted something a little nicer than those units that sound like it was coming from a tin can. Stumbling on to the Fugoo display inside the store, I was immediately impressed. Great sound, sharp looking, waterproof, light weight and portable are just a few things that struck me at first. And the Fugoo system connects with your phone with ease. My 20 year old son came home for the holidays and was equally impressed and asked me to get him one.

    The new standard in bluetooth technology.

    Posted .

    I had first purchased the first Fugoo with the tough case from Amazon and loved it. Used it every day for work. I am in the trades ( remodeling/tile and stone/ craft woodworking) and it held up perfectly to all the bumps, drops, dust, mortar, and being forgotten in the rain. The sound quality was excellent and the overall volume in relation to the size of the speaker was impressive. Distorted a little if I'll was above 85% max vol but still impressive. Once I learned they were making an XL version I looked into selling the old one to get the new one. Couldn't be happier! The XL surpasses any other bluetooth speaker I've heard before. It out performed my friends Sony and another's Bose. Both nice speakers. Has immensely clean highs with warm and full lows. Even all the up (wich in fact is very loud) it sounded excellent. So much so my neighbor came over to investigate the racket ! ( a band called Every) I believe he went to go buy one. Especially once I showed him that my phone was in my pocket playing music through my speaker about 150' away! I look forward to what the good people at Fugoo develop next!

    Better than expected!

    I went in to Best Buy to purchase a new speaker system that I could take "on the go" for summer events (pool, beach, boating, etc.). I wanted a Bluetooth based system (previous speaker was only for iPhone 5 connections- no Bluetooth). I had planned to purchase another system entirely, but I saw this system in a different area of the store (as I was walking out with the "other" system in-hand!), and it caught my attention. Needless to say, I decided to give this one a shot instead. I think the main reason I wanted this one was due to the fact that the "other" speaker system was "water resistant" and the Fugoo said it was completely waterproof and that it could even FLOAT!! I just admit, I was very skeptical of both these claims. I took it out on the boat the very next day, and the system absolutely holds up to such claims! It absolutely does float and waterproofing was on point! And the sound is fantastic! Great bass and very loud volume when using the "outdoor" feature. The battery didn't hold up as long as the manual said it would, but it got us through most of the day being at 100% volume and played constantly. I did have one other small issue with the case. The tether for the strap attachment (purchased separately later) was not attached properly and simply fell off. I contacted support (very helpful agents!) and they sent me a RMA to be able to ship it back for a replacement. As of this date, I am still waiting for the new one to arrive (it's only been about 4-5 days). All in all, I am very pleased with my purchase and would absolutely buy another one!

    Best kept secret

    Posted .

    I bought this on a whim after looking for a new speaker for over a year. I was all set to buy the JBL Extreme. This happened to be on clearance so I took a chance. After getting home I was amazed at the sound quality. I then watched multiple reviews on you tube vs the JBL and everyone chose this speaker over the Extreme. While it has just slightly less bass volume; it has a broader range of bass sounds & clarity. The mids & trebble are just as awesome. It was like listening to my songs for the first time all over again and hearing things I never heard before. I can't express how great this speaker truly sounds. The only con is the battery life can be short if you listen above mid volume.

    Great Speakers that can only improve

    Posted .

    Got these while on sale after debating for the longest time between these and the JBL Xtremes. I believe i got the best deal (price/quality) by picking Fugoo. Fugoo is a smaller company that is trying to grow and i don't mind supporting their product as it seems they are delivering quality. These speakers deliver superb bass and a filling sound - in addition battery life is great (although i doubt i am getting the 35 hours) - set up was a breeze and the button options are great. You can activate your personal assistant (IE SIRI) - play/pause / rew/fwd etc...these options were important to me as i wanted to be able to control my music without worrying about my phone especially in a wet environment such as the pool and shower(the JBL doesnt have these features) Sound compared to JBL is less powerful but also more natural to the ears and i believe is enough for indoor use. The design is great and you can eventually add straps to this speaker (would have been nice to include them with it but wont complain at the price i paid). I took a star for two reasons: -Lack of IOS/Android app to update the speaker firmware and or tweak sound -Evident distortion at levels of 70% to max volume on certain tracks (even played at very high quality 320 audio) which can be annoying if you are picky / i believe the distortion is sometimes due to the jacket but i am not sure - i have recently downloaded a firmware update but couldn't find the release notes anywhere nor had the chance to test the speaker. i would hope it somehow improved distortion. Overall, a great quality speaker that is good looking and anything proof - you have the ability to purchase a different jacket and add accessories which is a plus.

    Powerful and stylish speaker

    Posted .

    I was looking for a wireless bluetooth speaker to use in my family room that was softer in appearance and would not look like a big electronic piece on the shelf next to family pictures and vases. This works well in our space. It's inconspicuous and blends in softly with everything around it in my opinion. The sound quality is great for the space and easily fills the room without going very high on the volume. It's portable obviously, and I've used it on the patio a few times and produces more than enough sound to entertain a backyard BBQ. My only gripe with this speaker is when you turn it on, a VERY LOUD annoying voice says "POWER ON". I'm afraid that I will wake up my small at night when I'm just trying to have some light music in the evening. I'm sure there's a way to disable it, I just haven't looked it up yet.

    Really like the Speaker

    Posted .

    We purchased this to replace a Jambox speaker that had died. We love the fact that it is waterproof as we spend time around water and now don't have to be worried about our speaker getting wet. We also like the sound, the "outdoor" function is awesome and the highs and lows are really clean. We like the color of the XL as it goes with our decor, not that we chose it for that, but it was a nice bonus. Our only complaint is that you can't pair to the speaker once someone else has paired to it. My wife and I will often time switch up who is playing music and this forces us to have to hold the paring button and search out the unpaired device. Not a big deal, just wish you didn't have to handle the speaker to change devices.

    Best outdoor speaker.

    Posted .

    Unlike Bose, JBL, or etc., it has really neutral "hi-fi like" sound signiature, and is able to produce sound at 360 degree. Also it is able to produce low bass about 45-50 hz (There is no speaker out there that can play such a low bass like this one). I think it is the best outboor bluetooth speaker in the market now.

    Wow! Crystal Clear Sound! Indoor or out!

    Posted .

    I spent at least an hour in my local Best Buy listening to various wireless Bluetooth speakers for my deck. I came in expecting to purchase a KRAVN HD, listened to that one first. I was wondering why all the good reviews on that one as the sound was very hollow. Next i checked the Bose and it hAd a nice solid sound but when turned up the base overwhelmed the unit and drowned out the music. I would have tried the JBL Exreme but the demo was broken. The Beats Pil sounded good and was loud but could not handle the base. I went back over to the Sonos demo area, which is a decent sounding unit but of course it is not wireless. Same with the Bose Sound Touch, good sound, but a bit more pricey and not wireless. So i went back to the Bluetooth section and found the Fugoo. Wow, glad I did! What amazing sound from a wireless box. Now, this is no ordinary box, well built but heavier, so trackig around with you may be a bit tedious. But if you are going to set it down and play music then you picked the right Bluetooth sound box. Out of the box it is very simple to pair, and when you press the Bluetooth button, the box will prompt you with a voice to say it paired successfully. I streamed it to several Sirius XM channels including Spectrum where the well produced music is noticeable. Crystal clear studio like sound from this box? Yup! the base is amazing, the highs are never distorted. And , this box has separate speakers on both sides, so no matter where you want the sound it will be noticed. There is an outdoor setting that makes the sound even brighter. if you decide to use this indoor, it is better than any Bose sound system! There are several shells for this box to choose from, I went with the casual sand box. Oh yea, and this also acts as a hands free box too. no shouting in to this box and the caller can hear you just fine! I rarely give anything a 5 star, but this box powerhouse deserves it for sure!

    Durable and Loud

    Posted .

    I have used the UE Mega Boom and have that to compare. The Fugoo is louder. However, the cloth style cover got dirty. I noticed a rattle sound with certain music, like how car windows rattle when playing music with lots of bass. You cannot charge via micro USB, only with power adapter. I have not figured out how to adjust the sound quality, such as bass, treble, etc. It is heavy and can be hard to grasp initially. I have the hand strap on order now. I like that anyone can use it vs the Mega Boom where the owner has to be there with their phone or else the "party" stops.

    It has nice sound compared to most speakers this size. Great battery life. My wife loves the fact this actually replaced our stereo components on the bookshelf. I love that I can bring it anywhere and have a great sounding stereo. My only complaint wish it could go a tad bit louder for outside use.
