The pill look like exactly what its called; a pill. It is small enough to carry every where without adding extra bulk or weight. Great for traveling. When I got these speakers I wasn't able to test it out in the store, so I went on a whim because I know Beats by dr. Dre produces such great products. It easily pairs with any bluetooth device, even if it doesn't pair, there is an aux port which also works great; no difficulty using. For such a little device it is really loud and on the highest volume music sounds very crisp and clear. The only issue is sometimes when you pair with devices, it would just stop working mid song which it has done on several occasions, and I had to re-pair my device. It's annoying, but it doesn't really take away from it's amazing qualities. I love.
