Features

Ultra-high-quality sound

Add to that four active drivers and an 8-degree upward angle speaker tilt, and you have portable audio with the full richness of a deluxe in-home sound system.

Waterproof

Since portable Bluetooth speakers are a popular poolside fixture these days, waterproofing is important—but not many models actually have that. However, the FUGOO Sport is 100% waterproof down to a depth of 3 feet (1 meter) for 30 minutes. That means, you could leave it sunken at the bottom of the shallow end while streaming your favorite thirty-minute sitcom and it’ll still be functional. This level of waterproofing makes the FUGOO Sport a true standout in speakers of its class.

Voice enabled speakerphone

The FUGOO Sport caters to today’s modern users by having a fully voice-enabled speakerphone built-in. That means that you can use voice commands to instantly activate Siri and Google Now, allowing for conference calls with HQ sound on-the-go for laid back, but nonetheless important, business meetings.

You can also use this feature to control your music or even get briefs on the news, sports and weather—all by using your voice.

The sound is honestly great, which blew me away considering its small size. My sister accidentally knocked it into the pool at a family gathering, so I got to test out its waterproofing—that function definitely lives up to the hype!

Bottom line: The FUGOO Sport is the real deal and I see it being a regular fixture in my adventures.

Final verdict

The FUGOO Sport provides great sound in a tiny package, but the biggest benefit is definitely its ruggedness. It travels super-well and can definitely take a variety of weather conditions without a problem, which is great for those of us who enjoy the outdoors. The voice-enabled speakerphone feature is a great, modern addition that makes it possible to teleconference while you’re out in the middle of nowhere, which is a feature that is hard to beat. Likewise, the sound is killer—I highly recommend it.

Negatives
  • While overwhelmingly well-liked, the main criticism leveled at the FUGOO Sport has to do with the users’ perception of the tone range (highs, lows, mids). Some complain there isn’t enough bass, while others complain the highs aren’t bold enough. Because of the fact that these complaints vary so much from user to user (it should be noted most are happy with the sound), it is very possible it’s a preference issue or some users may actually have hearing damage (unbeknownst to them) that prevents them from adequately picking up the speaker’s full frequency range. The bottom line here is: For the average user, the sound is perceived as very high-quality, so this con won’t be an issue for the typical user.Fugoo sport
