  • Pros: Portability, The big red ‘b’, Loud volume
  • Cons: Uninspiring design, Bass performance Below par battery

Beats Pill Wireless Speaker Review

Chip Chick

  • Summary: As long as you can swallow the price tag, this is one Pill you should listen to the doctor and take. The Beats Pill comes in a choice of red, white or black and retails for $199 .
  • Pros: Fun product. Great design, that is ergonomic and easy to hold. Comes with plenty of accessories, including a carrying case. Crazy powerful for such a little speaker. Shines on vocals and highs.
  • Cons: Not the most rugged portable speaker out there, but the included carrying case makes up for that. Had some issues when pairing and often had to turn the Pill on and off. Bass is weak. Observed some distortion and popping at very high volumes.

  • Summary: While it was announced to the world back in October 2012 but it is only today that the new Beats by Dr. Dre Pill Wireless Speaker have finally received its official launch here in Malaysia.

18 August 2013
  • Summary: The Beats Pill by Dr Dre is a small, portable Bluetooth speaker that looks, well, like a pill and it can stream your music from smartphone, tablet or laptop. When it’s connected to your smartphone it can also act as a handsfree speakerphone to make and receive calls.
