Beats Pill

 

Sales are guaranteed, but is Beat's first portable speaker any good?

NFC Bluetooth pairing, Clear conference calls

Music reproduction is weak and lacks bass, Exorbitantly expensive, Limited battery life

Beats Pill review

 

Is the Beats by Dre Pill Bluetooth speaker an antidote to the Jawbone Jambox?

Portability ; The big red ‘b’ ; Loud volume

Uninspiring design ; Bass performance ; Below par battery

Beats by Dr. Dre Pill

 

All style and little substance – the Pill isn't talented enough to compete with more accomplished class rivals

Small and portable ; Easy to use: Swift pairing ; Agile, speedy rhythm ; Livens up with punchy, bass-heavy music

Thin and weak sound ; Could be more detailed, dynamic and agile ; Picky with music genre ; Pricey

If you’re after that characteristic bold and bass-tastic Beats sound, you’ll be disappointed with the Pill. It’s pricey, too: we expect a much more engaging and articulate listen for £170.

Beats Pill portable speaker

 

Beats is renowned for bringing the bass. The company's latest portable speaker, known as the Beats Pill because of its pill-shaped design, is a change of tack for the company in many respects. With four, 1-inch speakers arranged under its casing with...

Plenty of volume, NFC, Bluetooth, carry case, quirky design, on-device volume controls

Lacks bass, some distortion issues (volume, battery life and track dependent) pricey, battery doesn't last as long as we'd like

If Beats minus much of the bass sounds like a hard pill to swallow then the Pill won't be the product for you. There's volume aplenty though and, in isolation and assuming it's not cranked "up to 11" where distortion is often apparent, the Pill...

Hands-on: Beats Pill review - Pocket-lint

 

Beats by Dr Dre has become so much more than a brand associated with bass-thumping headphones in the last year or so. Perhaps it's the company's split

Beats by Dr. Dre Pill review

 

Portable Bluetooth speakers seem to be one of the most popular consumer technology devices right now, so it's no surprise to see Beats jump into the game. The Beats Pill is compact, well designed and easy to use, but it lacks bass, distorts at high...

The Beats Pill is a compact, well designed and easy to use portable Bluetooth speaker. However, it lacks bass, distorts at high volume levels and is overpriced. Spend your money elsewhere.

Beats Pill vs Ultimate Ears Boom: Which Bluetooth speaker is the best?

 

Bluetooth speakers can be a perfect way to give the music selection on your smartphone or tablet a bit of a volume boost.

The Ultimate Ears wins this one, simply because it's a better device in nearly every respect. Audio quality coupled with longer battery life and useful features like water-resistance make this an ideal portable speaker.

Beats by Dr. Dre Pill review

 

The Beats Pill is compact and well designed, but lacks bass and distorts at high volume levels

Stylish, compact design ; Decent sound at moderate volumes ; Included, zippered carry case

Distortion at high volume levels ; Lack of bass ; Overpriced

The Beats Pill is a compact, well designed and easy to use portable Bluetooth speaker. However, it lacks bass, distorts at high volume levels and is overpriced. Spend your money elsewhere.
