Beats by Dr. Dre Pill Design

The Pill by Beats offers a truly unique design, unlike anything that you’ve seen on the market before. Take a familiar, ordinary product, such as a portable speaker, and redesign is so that It’s fresh and appealing. That’s exactly what Dr. Dre did! The pill is shaped like a gel cap, and comes in a variety of different colors in order to add to the unique design. You can get black, white, silver ,red, green, and pink.

Sound Quality

The sound quality on this little pill is good You wouldn’t expect such big sound from such a small product, but this one delivers. It is reasonably loud and can easily fill a small room with sound, but music deteriorates if the volume is raised over 80 per cent. At lower volumes, the Beats Pill produces reasonable sound. It’s clear and full and only distorts when there is excessive bass. The speaker has four drivers, and Dr Dre is fairly mum on the technology inside…..

Beats Pill Customer Reviews

This speaker has above average customer reviews, overall. Most users agree that the sound quality is amazing for such a small device. The unique pill design blows most users away. Most rant and rave about the small size of this, allowing users to easily move around with it in tow. A couple of users do complain about the music reproduction being weak, and the lack of bass. Others believe that it is too expensive for the kind of speaker it is.


Priced at close to the $200 range, it is a little on the pricier side for what it offers. The Dr. Dre name definitely adds to the overall cost. It lacks some important features that other portable speakers contain. However, the ultra lightweight design and unique pill shape makes this a one of a kind product. Overall, we rate it 3.5 out of 5. As new and better wireless speakers are hitting the market, we think you can certainly do better for your money. Heck for a few dollars more the Fugoo Tough Bluetooth Wireless Speaker outshines the Pill in most all areas
