Beats Pill XL (review): Bigger Bluetooth speaker justifies its premium price with strong design and sound
30 January 2015
Summary: The combination of the Pill XL's strong sound, excellent design and feature set make it a reasonable value despite its elevated price tag.
Pros: The Beats Pill XL is well-designed with an integrated carrying handle, a robust feature set, including speakerphone capabilities and a USB-out charging port, and strong sound for a portable Bluetooth speaker. Also, battery life is decent at 15 hours.
Cons: Speaker requires its own AC adapter (not Micro-USB) for charging; no carrying case included.
Beats Pill XL Review: The Doctor Delivers a Bigger Dosage of Sound
13 July 2014
Summary: I wasn’t sure what to expect with the Beats Pill XL , as much as I thought the Beats Pill was adorable, how was the Beats Pill XL going to wedge its way in between the smaller Pill and the Beatbox Portable?
Pros: Once again – the pill capsule design is back and looks even better larger. NFC support. 15 hour battery life. Convenient carrying handle. You can charge your devices from the Beats Pill XL. Sound fills a room well. Great sonics with strong mids and highs. Does well with all genres. No distortion ...
Cons: Takes several hours to warm up the speaker drivers. Only one color available so far.
Summary: There are so many Bluetooth speakers, you could easily be mistaken for feeling like you’re drowning in them. So what does it take for a company trying to sell a Bluetooth speaker to stand out?
Conclusion: Whether or not audiophiles sneer at the brand, the Beats Pill XL is not an over-hyped, sham-y, glitzed-up toy of a speaker. And while we know some will balk at the speaker’s intentionally robust bass response, we feel like it has been kept in check this go-around, as its boom seems less egregious...
Pros: Lots of thoughtful features, Clever design, Long-lasting battery, Huge sound, lots of bass, Clean, controlled treble a refreshing change
Cons: Bass can be overwhelming at close range, Bass can have a “one note” effect at times, Mids/vocals a little recessed
Excerpt: When Jawbone released the Big Jambox , it was the first big tech brand with a super-sized wireless speaker to up-size from the original Jambox. Then Ultimate Ears jumped onto the bandwagon with the Boombox .
Pros: Powerful sound., Versatile connectivity., USB device charging.
Cons: Troublesome multi-pairing., Dedicted AC charging (no USB)., NFC issues.
Beats Pill XL im Test: Die portable Power-Pille im Test
6 January 2015
Summary: Stolze 299,95 Euro verlangt Beats für die Maxi-Variante der pillenförmigen Bluetooth-Lautsprecher und kann damit vom Klang her durchaus überzeugen. Wie schon bei unseren Tests zum Solo 2 und den PowerBeats 2 Wireless stellen wir auch beim Pill XL erfreulicherweise fest, dass Beats nun nicht mehr nur...
Summary: Den almindelige Pill var en sovepille, men Pill XL er en energi-indsprøjtning. Med dobbelt størrelse, dobbelt batteritid og dobbelt så høj lyd er den præcis så sej, som en Beats-højttalere skal være.
Cons: Den overdrevne bas betyder, at Pill XL kun duer til visse slags musik.
