I got the Beats Pill speakers as a Christmas gift and thought I was going to LOVE them! I did for a little while the music sounds pretty good for a speaker of this size. I have a Bose Portable that is much larger and has GREAT sound. These speakers are a good substitute for traveling and they have good sound, like I said. However, since my iPhone 5 and iPad have been upgraded to iOS 6.0 and beyond the Bluetooth has been HORRIBLE! It will connect and play for about 5 minutes, sometimes longer but NEVER longer than 10 minutes. After that the connection drops out, without warning. The iPod still shows that the music should be playing but nothing can be heard. In order to get it to work again you have to turn the speakers off, or hit the button to repair the connection, then turn your bluetooth off/on after that it will work for another 5 minutes. Go with ANOTHER speaker or wait until Apple and Beats figure this issue out because it is a HEADACHE!!
This device is seriously a disappointment. Regardless if you're a fan of Beats or not, this was really disappointing for $200. After medium volume the device startled to crackle and pop. It had a very thin frequency response. I expected something with a little bit of bass coming from a Beats product - nope.
The $100 UE box is much better and half the price. A much better bargain.
