    All Brand and Low Value

    • Written by from Chicago

    I purchased this from the Apple Store as I have been looking for a great bluetooth speaker for summer. Sadly, though the PILL XL, like its' little brothers, makes a great appearance but, severely lacks in the sound department. The PILL XL while certainly loud, doesn't provide clean or clear sound. The treble is flat and the bass sounds, in a word, raggedy. I returned the product thinking it was perhaps the one unit, but after testing both the Beats Pill XL and Beats Box in store, it seems to me the device is all brand and provides little value. I'm all for "sexy" products, but at a retail price of $300 it better'ed have superior functionality as well. If you want a flashy noise box that produces something that resembles actual music, be my guest. I'll hold out for a truly superior product. Hopefully Beats will show up with one.

    I AM Impressed! This little speaker blows away other portables.

    • Written by from rancho cucamonga

    I am impressed! I've bought and returned several other portable boom boxes and this one is by far the best. The sound is great. The Pill XL has crisp clear high and mid range along with a surprisingly good bass. It's small and feels well built and durable. The internal battery, (Lithium-Ion) lasts hours and charges fairly quickly. I've listened to my Beats Pill XL all day at the beach, volume up and still had 1/4 battery at the end of the day. I'm planning on buying a second one, they can be used together, both streaming from my my bluetooth at the same time to fill a large area with my music. It can also be used while plugged into a wall plug to save the battery. I'm looking forward to a summer filled with crisp clear music.

    Full, clear sound; easy to use

    • Written by from Richardson

    I've been using the Pill XL for about a week now and so far couldn't be happier with its amazing sound and ease of use. Despite its small size, it can easily fill a room with loud clear tunes and powerful, but not overpowering, bass. Handles everything from jazz to techno beautifully. It's really simple to set up and has so far connected well with Apple devices. Would definitely recommend over Bose and Jawbone products.

    Not A Beats Fan But This Is AMAZING!

    • Written by from Dickinson

    This beats pill is amazing!! I got a full 24hr use with it before writing this review. First thing i used it for was hooking up to my TV as a Sound bar.. it was perfect for movies. Next, i used it in my garage for my workout, perfect for outside even, sounded like i had the doors open on my vehicle and had the music KrankED! Also i should say i listen to Hip Hop, Rock, all sorts of music and this did well with anything you pump through it!
    Don't waste your time with other portable speakers. Bose makes a nice one too but if you want to FEEL your music. buy the BEATS!!!!!!

    Beats VS Bose VS Big Jambox

    • Written by from Austin

    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. It is so far a Perfect device. Don’t walk to buy it, RUN.
