      Clean loud sound with well balanced bass - impressive

      I bought this and the Bose sound-link mini II and did some blind comparison inviting several people.I was using the iPhone 6 Plus connected via Bluetooth. The p I bought this and the Bose sound-link mini II and did some blind comparison inviting several people.I was using the iPhone 6 Plus connected via Bluetooth. The pill+ was always favored. This was a gift to my 12 year old daughter, even she liked the pill+. I played several songs, pausing and then switching speakers. The Bose is good but the pill+ was more open (natural) in vocal and had better instrument separation, bass was also clean although not as emphasized as the Bose sound-link mini II. It also plays louder than the Bose counterpart. Overall, the Beats Pill+ was the winner. I actually went to buy the Bose, but the Apple sales guy was just setting the Pill+ on display (Apple SFO store). He suggested to buy both since the Pill+ was just released and did not have much info. I now have the Bose packed and ready for return (sorry Bose). Please be advised that Pill+ is perhaps the best choice in <$230 price range. It cannot be compared with other more expensive Bluetooth speakers given it's small form factor. Also I did not test the speaker phone since my daughter has taken full possession of this device. PS - I save the 5 stars for the ultimate sound, also reliability, let's see how long it lasts...

      Very Picky Consumer: Would recommend!

Honestly, if it wasn't for the fact, that I might eventually have a problem with my battery, I would have never returned the speaker. That speaker was amazing. Loud, Well-balanced sound, durable, long battery life, reasonable charge time, charge-out, line-out, and of course the nifty handle were the main reasons I liked it. I purchased the Beats Pill+ last week and have been using it everyday since. I did a lot of online shopping and comparing different brands and features and finally decided on the Pill+. Incredible sound for it's size! Seriously, turn this little guy up and you won't be disappointed by the amount of sound that comes out, the clarity and how it fills the room with ease. I currently also own an iPhone 6 and connected with no problems. The app seems a little lacking at the moment but I will cut them slack since it's a new product. I would not say that this is a direct trade off for the Beats Pill XL especially because of the lack of audio-out, included audio cable, and just the lack of bass that the XL could achieve, but none-the-less still highly recommend. Durability test will have to be done over time, although I don't think that will be an issue. Very solid product. One last thing: As far as the battery goes. I used the Pill+ for 3 days straight listening to music in the office for a majority of the day on a single charge!

It is easy to use and I have it simultaneously paired with both my macbook and my apple tv at the same time, so can play audio through either without having to do any re-pairing. It works with both audio and mic for facetime calls. The charging port is in the back, making it easy to hide the wire if using it while charging. It's a very sleek, well thought-out design. It is loud and clear with decent bass. It is far better than any laptop speakers or built-in monitor speakers. I almost decided to get the much cheaper jam heavy metal, which is a slightly better sounding bluetooth speaker with deeper bass. Although this pill+ doesn't sound quite as good as some of the other portable bluetooth options, it looks better, has better wire placement, has great multi-pairing functionality, has a good mic for calls (when my laptop is docked under my desk), and is classy. It still sounds better than many portable speakers of this size.
