The Beats by Dr. Dre Pill XL is a bigger, louder version of the Pill Bluetooth wireless compact speaker for iPhone, iPod, or iPad. It delivers enough sound to fill a large room or power a backyard barbecue.
Even though it's larger, Beats by Dr. Dre Pill XL is still lightweight and has a built-in handle for maximum portability. The Pill XL gives you the freedom to take high-quality audio anywhere.
Tap, pair, and play
Sync two Pill XLs by tapping them together to play the same song. You can also tap them together twice to hear your music in stereo, making one Pill XL the left output and the other the right.
Change tracks from your iOS device
Pair the Pill XL to your iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, or any other Bluetooth-enabled device to change tracks and adjust the volume from up to 30 feet away.
Visible fuel gauge
A visible battery fuel gauge lets you always know how much power is left. Pill XL's rechargeable battery gives you 15 hours of continuous play and it automatically shuts off after ten minutes of no signal detection to save power.
Not only does Pill XL deliver music power for hours, it has plenty of extra juice to charge your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch.

Beats VS Bose VS Big Jambox
I love the Pill XL. I have owned the Big Jambox and Bose Soundlink, but by far the Pill XL is my favorite. It has the Volume and B I love the Pill XL. I have owned the Big Jambox and Bose Soundlink, but by far the Pill XL is my favorite. It has the Volume and Bass of the Big Jambox and clarity of the Bose. It also has many features that the other two do not have. You can charge other devices using the Pill XL and you can also connect multiples pills together for a surround sound feel.

Must Buy Product!
I don't own one personally, but my friend got one for Christmas. Since she is completely technologically challenged, she brought i I don't own one personally, but my friend got one for Christmas. Since she is completely technologically challenged, she brought it to my house with her iTouch, MacBook Pro, and iPhone 5S and asked me to hook them all up for her. I got to play with this for quite awhile and I have nothing but good things to say about it. It looks great, it's easy to setup, and the sound is amazing! There's a Power On/Off button, Volume buttons, Bluetooth button, in addition to in/out ports, and even has a handle built-in and little feet that it rests on. Great device to taking out to the pool, beach, etc. The sound is far superior to other devices I've tried. I definitely am putting this on my Birthday Wishlist this year! …

Even when worked, control is not really intuitive.

Pairing works as it should with bluetooth, but from what I gathered NFC on the iPhone is only good for ApplePay as of this moment, so that doesn't work for us :( Stinks that a product that Apple bought and endorses can't even talk with each other...HOPEFULLY A FIRMWARE UPDATE WILL FIX THAT SOONER THAN LATER!! …
