Fugoo Bluetooth speaker family

LAS VEGAS -- The Fugoo Bluetooth speaker rocks a unique design that aims to please everyone from the outdoor enthusiast to the average Joe. It packs six drivers -- two tweeters, two midwoofers, and two passive radiators -- on all four of its sides, enabling 360-degree sound.

Interchangeable jackets

Fugoo offers three different interchangeable jackets that vary in price and performance. The Style Jacket, the one in the front of the photo, is the most basic model and starts at $199.

Core speaker

The core speaker isn't highly visible when inside a cover, but taking off the jacket reveals the sturdy, all-black body. For a device that can withstand a 5.5-foot drop, it's pretty darn light.

Fugoo Sport

Meant for those with a relatively active lifestyle, the Sport model features a more durable build and a variety of accessories for mounting the device.

Fugoo Tough

Fugoo states that its toughest case is "virtually indestructible." Sounds like a Torture Test challenge to me!

Bluetooth remote

Fugoo also offers a wearable Bluetooth remote that's sold separately. Like the speaker, it's waterproof.

Bottle opener

Not only does the Fugoo Bluetooth remote work with Siri and Google Now, it has a bottle opener on the back. It's almost like this speaker is begging to party in a pool with you.
