Good music needs to be heard on amazing speakers, this is not up for debate. That new mixtape you downloaded or playlist you’ve created is begging to be shared with others so make sure you have the best equipment on hand. As the season of giving starts to roll through in the next couple of weeks, let’s get you familiar with some of our favorite tech devices- perfect for your family, friends, and yes, even for yourself.
FOR THE SPORTS ENTHUSIAST, ADVENTURE-SEEKING, NATURE-LOVING TYPE:
This mid-size bluetooth speaker delivers an amazing 360-degree, direct, full fidelity sound, making sure everyone around you will hear the same high-quality beat. It’s also waterproof, shock proof, and dust/mud/snow proof. Seriously, this was designed for anything the outdoors will throw at you. The “GO” model also has a super-strength, elastic mounting cord that we wished all our other outdoor speakers had, you would think this was standard across all brands. The 10-hour battery life was more than enough when we took it to our local SoCal beach. You would probably go through 3 or more SPF reapplications before needing to charge again.
The best part? The price tag won’t break your budget. And with its 2 speakers pairing mode capability, you can go ahead and add a second “GO” speaker to your cart. See the available colors now on Fugoo.com.
FOR THE TECH/GADGET EXPERT, INTERIOR DESIGNER, HOMEBODY TYPE:
In comparison to the “GO” speaker, this larger model packs a bigger punch, longer battery life, and will compliment any room in your house. The interchangeable outer shell/sleeve is both stylish and functional. As with most of the FUGOO speakers, the “STYLE XL” is also waterproof, shock proof and dust/mud/snow proof. Inside the sleeve is the “CORE-XL”, boasting a bevy of amazing tech specs: “8 symmetrically placed drivers crank out clean highs, midrange punches and deep, roaring lows. With 4 tweeters, 2 mid/sub drivers, 2 passive radiators and a 97 db sound pressure level, the CORE-XL fills large rooms and outdoor adventures with rich, immersive audio.”
The voice-enabled microphone came in handy when we were on a conference call. And with Siri and Google Now capabilities, you can easily multi-task and control your music without looking at your phone. The USB Port and cord charged our devices super quick and with a battery life of 35 hours, we spent the whole 8 hour work day with the speaker on and phone charging. Ever feel like streaming Kanye West and Jay Z’s whole music catalog all day and not worry about your devices getting low on battery? Ya, we feel that way too.
