Beats By Dre Beats Pill Review
Beats by Dre Beats Pill just as its name suggests, is somewhat of a giant pill, weighing 10.9 ounces and measuring 7.7-inch-long. The cylindrical electronic sound-capturing device has round ends with middle band for holding all four controls.
Its cross-measurement is 1.8 inches, being cut in half on angle with front holding metal grille while the back section consisting of rubberized shell that features a relatively rubbery and flat nature, running down the bottom-side length. The middle band carries large and glowing Beats button which serves as a multifunction Answer / Play / Pause calls button, a Volume Up/Down buttons pair plus Power button located near the back. As well, the band holds an NFC decal which allows you to pair an NFC-enabled Smartphone automatically, such as Samsung Galaxy SIII for instance, with speaker by just tapping the phone to it. Sitting on back panel are a microUSB charging port, Bluetooth indicator light and 3.5mm input/output port.
The pill as well features several accessories aside from the speaker. These include USB-compatible AC adapter, together with charging cable for USB-to-micro-USB. This Beats by Dre Beats Pill speaker comes with 3.5mm audio cable of 5 feet for connecting directly onto devices in case your gadget is not Bluetooth-enabled. The speaker too includes zippered case made of hard shell and having a loop. This case fits perfectly onto the sound-capturing device, though not useful in particular. You can use the case when performing field functions owing to its fairly rugged design, but be careful not to get it excessively dirty or wet.
Beats Pill may not produce a lot of bass due to its relatively small size. It however employs some processing algorithm which softens some track parts to keep them intact within the speaker while sound is generated. Processing could however delay for up to one second. The Beats Pill speaker by Dr Dre Designers doubles up as speakerphone, serving superbly in that capacity. Calls are heard quite clearly as such. You get unique form factor from the device as well, doubling as a satisfactory speakerphone.
Little weighty, deep and solid bass may be heard from this microphone speaker. The sound which proceeds from this device is wispy and lightweight, lacking punchy sonic character produced by many other headphones of the device. Some flares come out still when playing songs endowed with heavy bass.
Beats by Dre Beats Pill nonetheless compensates for challenged bass with its lightweight form which makes it ultra-portable, along with solid build. The casing of rubber used feels smooth when touched too, with four drivers easily visible as they peek out from behind grille of the speaker. Overall, you can expect some decent rhythmic sounds from the Beats by Dre Beats Pill, as it zips through tracks with good agility, generating light sound.
