Beats Pill Bluetooth speaker review

12 February 2014
  • Conclusion: With its slender styling, competitive pricing, solid build and Beats by Dr. Dre branding the Beats Pill will sell faster than Falafel. It’s a neat proposition with excellent packaging, quality peripherals and seamless NFC connectivity. If you’re looking for a portable speaker with simple controls, effortless connectivity and better than average sound you’ll not be disappointed, but if you’re expecting Dr.

Geek Girl review: Beats by Dr. Dre Pill

26 June 2013
  • Excerpt: The Pill is the latest Beats speaker to join the array of portable Bluetooth speakers on the market. With a hefty price tag of $310 , is this stylish speaker worth the bucks you’re thinking of shelling out? This resident Geek Girl gets her hands on a unit to find out. Not surprisingly, the Pill comes in the shape of, well, a pill capsule. Weighing in at about 310 grams, which is slightly heavier than the Jawbone Jambox .

Beats Pill Wireless Speaker Review

Chip Chick
8 June 2013
  • 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: Audiophiles might turn up their noses at the Pill, but the speaker delivers impressive sound quality for such a relatively small package. For the same $199 price tag, consumers can pick up the Monster ClarityHD Micro Bluetooth speaker, which offers voice command and a better balance of bass and volume. However, consumers looking for a fun design and solid audio can take one Pill and call us in the morning.
  • Pros: Fun colorful design, NFC compatible, Good audio quality, Impressive Bluetooth range
  • Cons: Lacks buttons for changing tracks, No Voice CommandCall Announce, Speakerphone suffers from latency
