From the images available, the Beats Pill Bluetooth speaker has a curved design, four drivers and an auxiliary-in jack. Details about the Pill’s full specifications are a bit sketchy since the product’s prototype is still being registered in the FCC. But from what information we have gathered, the Beats Pill speaker will have a battery life of 8.5 hours and will run on a USB rechargeable lith-ion battery.
The speakers quickly won me over. During the demo, I began to see that a new Pill speaker from Beats makes perfect sense. It’s a product that desperately needed a redesign. The first Pill has sold more than a million units since its debut in 2012. Though it’s a hit, it’s gotten long in the tooth and the audio quality is really poor. That makes the Pill the perfect thing to tear down and rebuild. (Also, Bluetooth speakers are way easier than headphones.)
