Beats Pill+

 

The portable Beats Pill+ speaker delivers strong Bluetooth audio for its size, USB charging, and speakerphone functionality, but it's priced a bit high compared with the competition.

Rich, distortion-free audio with well-defined highs. USB port for charging mobile devices. Functions as a speakerphone.

Drivers not angled for best sound quality. Lacks truly deep bass response. High price.

Conclusions If there's a real gripe here, it's that the Pill+ sounds markedly different depending on its angle to your ears—an issue that could have been fixed by angling the drivers upward or building in a kickstand that allows you to tilt the speaker...

Review: Beats Pill+

 

Now owned by Apple, Beats has revamped its small Bluetooth speaker. The new portable Pill+ has a sharper design and better sound.

Beats' new Pill+ Bluetooth speaker charges with Apple Lightning cable

 

Slightly bigger and shaped differently than the original Pill, the new Pill+ offers better sound and battery life, as well faster charging with an included lightning cable.

The is a great choice if you're looking for a portable speaker that can produce high-quality audio. However, the fills that niche a bit better.

Beats Pill+ Review (2015) – Beats Just Blew Away The Competition

 

Beats' latest Pill is their best yet. The new Beats Pill+ is the company's first speaker since Apple brought Beats into the family, and it's clear that the fruits of this partnership have been juiced up and poured into the Pill+. The design of the 8.5″...

Beats Pill+

 

The Beats Pill+ is a small wireless speaker. However, it's totally different to the Pill and Pill 2.0 that came before.

Smart splashproof design ; Goes pretty loud ; Best-sounding small Pill yet

Harsh and coarse at higher volumes ; Bass power drops a bit at low volumes ; Fairly expensive ; No apt-X or NFC

It’s much better than the first two small-scale Pill speakers, but it’s not quite good enough to get close to matching the best on sound.

Beats Pill+ review

 

Beats' first wireless speaker under the Apple umbrella isn't quite what the doctor ordered...

Big, clear sound ; Can pair speakers ; Good integration for Apple users ; USB phone charging ; Good weight

Price ; Struggles at high volume ; Rivals are more expressive and dynamic

With sound still not up to scratch, the latest Pill leaves us prescribing better and more affordable rivals

Beats Pill+ review: A pricey pill to swallow

 

Portable Bluetooth speakers are available in abundance right now. Whether ones made by companies you've heard of, or ones that you haven't, the price and ability of such speakers hugely varies. With Beats now owned by Apple adding a sense of extra...

Best looking Pill design to date, reasonable battery life, loud output, pair two for stereo/amplified output

Sound limitations, limited bass, no NFC, some Bluetooth connectivity issues, pops/clicks/drop-outs, competition offer more for less money

The Beats Pill+ is the best looking pill-shaped portable from the now-Apple-owned company. But that's not enough to make it stand head and shoulders above its competition, particularly given the overall sound quality and a scatty Bluetooth connection....

Beats Pill+ Speaker review

 

The first Apple-fied Beats speaker isn't quite what the doctor ordered

Multiroom aspirations ; Decent battery life ; Clean, compact design

Not waterproof ; Lacks expression ; App not UK-ready yet ; Pricey for the performance

The best Pill yet gets the Apple treatment, but leaves us prescribing more talented rivals

Beats Pill+ review

 

The Pill+ is a product you'll want to love, but probably won't

Great build quality ; Gets loud ; Charges your phone

Uncontrolled bass ; Piercing highs ; Distortion at high volumes

The Beats Pill+ far improves upon the original, but this iteration's mediocre sound and steep price mean that there are still some improvements that need to be made.
