The Beats Pill speaker has got some pop
-Hi, I'm David Carnoy, executive editor for cnet.com.
And I'm here with the Beats by Dre pill bluetooth speaker.
The speaker is very much in the vein of the Jawbone JAMBOX.
It is a little bit longer and is in the shape of a capsule.
As you could see, it actually comes packaged much like a pill and it comes with a nice carrying case.
Like JAMBOX, this one has a rechargeable battery and a built-in speaker phone capability.
One feature you will not find in the JAMBOX is NFC capabilities unless you take an NFC phone such as the Samsung Galaxy S3 and tap to pair it.
Like a lot of other small bluetooth speakers, this one charges via USB.
It also has an input for non-bluetooth devices if you have an optional capable and it has an output as well.
But really what sets this apart from the competition is its form factor, its design, and also its sound quality.
It's a little bit better than the JAMBOX.
It plays loud for its size, has decent base, decent clarity.
It's not gonna blow everyone away, but certainly it offers impressive sound for its size.
I'm David Carnoy and that's the Beats by Dre pill bluetooh speaker.
Thanks for watching.
