Great Sound From Small Package 01/17/2014
This review is from: Beats by Dr. Dre Pill Wireless Bluetooth Speaker (White)
Very good bass, very crisp highs. Clarity is very good even at reasonably loud volume. Good battery life. Connects to music source via 3.5mm jack, Bluetooth, or NFC.
Item N82E16855323001 is Beats Pill version 1, and is an excellent little portable stereo speaker. Version 2 adds the ability to act as a charger for your cell phone, music source etc. via a full size USB port on the bottom - you provide your own charging cable. Version 2 also adds the ability to use one Beats 2.0 Pill as a wireless right channel speaker and a second Beats 2.0 Pill as a wireless left channel speaker from a single source connection. Those are the only differences between 1.0 and 2.0. C/N*t gives Pill great ratings on sound reproduction - for unknown reasons, they gripe about the suggested list price, and reduce their rating based on the suggested list price but do not include the price "rating" in their statistics for all similarly sized speakers (so much for ratings consistency and objectivity, right?) Do not expect ANY speaker of this size - including this one - to fill a large room with audiophile sound at a volume level that will rattle the windows and anger the neighbors. For the size, price, and connectivity options, the Beats Pill sounds really good. (Your ears may vary.)
