The Beats Pill is a light and portable Bluetooth speaker that promises quality sound
The Beats Pill is a light and portable Bluetooth speaker that promises quality sound. We've just received an evaluation unit, so let's go hands-on!
Like all Beats products, there is a real emphasis on the Pill's retail packaging and presentation.
Unboxing the Beats Pill.
The Beats Pill comes packages with an Australian AC adapter, a micro-USB to USB charging cable, a standard 3.5mm audio cable for a wired connection and a carabiner that attaches to the included carry case.
There's also the standard documentation included. Product support, user guide, warranty and the safe buying guide that tells you how to spot fake Beats products.
The Beats Pill even comes packaged like a pill, in this case quite a large one.
The sealed plastic wrapped needs to be peeled back to open, as shown above.
The included zipped carry case is a nice touch.
Removing the Beats Pill from the carry case.
The Beats Pill has minimal physical buttons and most of the operation centres around the large Beats button on the front.
You press and hold this button for three seconds to put the speaker into Bluetooth pairing mode. You can also press it to answer or end any incoming calls, place a call on hold, or play or pause your current music.
Volume up and down buttons sit on top of the Beats Pill. There are no buttons to skip tracks.
The rear of the Beats Pill has a power button, a micro-USB input for charging, and audio in and out ports.
We'll have a full review of the Beats Pill online in the coming days. It is available now in Australia for $259.
