Our take on the Beats by Dr. Dre™ Pill
A pill that can cure your musical ills? It may just be possible. The Beats Pill is a compact speaker system that lets you wirelessly stream music from your smartphone, tablet, or other portable player. It's small enough to deliver your daily dose of music wherever you go, with rich Beats by Dr. Dre sound.
Bluetooth connectivity for music and talk
The Pill is compatible with virtually all Bluetooth-enabled devices, including your Android™ phone or tablet, iPhone®, iPad®, or portable game console. Its NFC (Near Field Communication) technology gives you simple, one-touch Bluetooth pairing with compatible devices. Plus, it features high-fidelity aptX® audio coding for better sound quality with compatible devices.
The signature Beats sound
Like all Beats products, the Pill's sound profile has been crafted to Dr. Dre's exacting standards. The system's four built-in speakers deliver your music with clear highs, detailed mids, and, of course, plenty of bass. The Pill may be small, but its sound is anything but!
It doubles as a speakerphone, too
Need to talk? Pair the Pill with your smartphone and carry on the conversation in style. It features echo cancellation to ensure call clarity, and also has feedback control to keep the sound right where it should be.
Remember to take your Pill
Clip the carry case's carabiner onto your belt or backpack and you're ready to travel. The Pill can give you up to seven hours of continuous play from its built-in rechargeable battery. An auto-shutoff function turns off the system after a half hour of inactivity, extending the battery life. Charge the Pill via the included AC adapter or by connecting its USB charging cable to your computer.
From the review Beats by Dr. Dre™ Pill: This tiny Bluetooth® speaker delivers big sound
"The Pill is a very cool product, one I could find a lot of use for. Its portability, wireless function and ease-of-use would make it a worthy addition to any home where music is welcome in every room and beyond."
