We have been listening to your feedback and have been hard at work on improvements to the FUGOO Speakers Software. I’d like to offer you and others the ability to download our newest Beta FUGOO Software 1.00.36. FUGOO Firmware Update 1.00.36 has all of the improvements of 1.00.27 (our current released software) with additional improvements in sound quality and loudness. If you would like to review all the other improvements, you can read more here.
We have made many improvements to the FUGOO Speakers Software in the past few months, but the key one you may enjoy is around improved loudness.
There are two modes for loudness: Normal Mode, and Loud Mode. These modes can be toggled back and forth by simultaneously pressing and holding the Action button (O) while pressing the Power button to power the speaker on.
For Beta version 1.00.36 in Normal Mode we have improved the Digital Signal Processing (DSP) to increase the overall loudness of most songs, and at the same time limiting the loudness of certain songs to limit or prevent distortion. Songs that were recorded and mastered at a relatively low level will be boosted in loudness, while songs that were recorded and mastered at a very high level and can reach distortion are boosted less to limit or prevent distortion. Streaming services like Pandora and iTunes Radio will have an across the board increase in loudness in Normal Mode on version 1.00.36 compared to previous firmware versions.
In Loud Mode, we use the same smart DSP algorithm, and we boost the overall gain to achieve an even louder experience. Loud Mode is great for outdoor use when you want that extra loudness out by the pool or beach or barbecue party and some amount of distortion on some songs is not obvious in that environment.
We hope this improves your experience with FUGOO and know that we will continue to improve the product down the road.
Thanks for the opportunity,
