    Too slippery to hold on to

    Love the sound, but if you carry it to move around room to room, be very careful, it is very slippery to hold on to. I dropped mine twice, the last time something happened, sound is terrible now. Please make this more grip friendly!!!!!!!!

    Great Speaker Ever

    I just bought this speaker and it has great HD sound. Sleek design and even comes with a lighting cable port since I am all in Apple. Good Job Beats!

    Great portable speaker

    I recently purchase this speaker, I am not an audiophile, rather someone who enjoys listening to Pop music, podcasts and watch YouTube videos on all my iDevices, this is perfect for my needs, the sounds is clean and balanced.

    The device is not too heavy, it can be moved around with ease.

    I would give it five stars if the price was more affordable, but like with all Apple items you pay an extra tax.

    Old vs New

    I really didn't like the old Beats Pill XL. But this new Beats Pill Portable is a lot better than the old system. The bass sounds warmer and the treble is not too overwhelming. The bass radiator on this version is positioned correctly so it's more pronounced compared to the XL.

    I sold my Bose Soundlink Mini to purchase the Beats Pill. Overall, I'm more satisfied with this Beats product than Bose Soundlink Mini. Bose overdrives their bass so you can't really push the speaker that much because the compressor starts kicking in.

    It's perfect!

    I bought this around Christmas for myself and I love it. Plays perfectly, the sound is clear, And that bass is just like whoa. The first time I used it I was pleasantly surprised by how well everything sounded. It's pricey but worth it! I have no complaints, buy it!

    Such a great product

    I bought this product for myself as I listen to music quite a lot. I previously had a Bose soundLink mini 2 but then took a risk and bought the BeatsPill+ because of its additional features. Best decision ever. The BeatsPill+ is much louder than the previous speaker I had, and the bass is so rich whilst the overall sound is crisp and high quality. The design is stunning, and I love the feature of being able to charge my iPhone when I'm out with the speaker. The sound that comes from the BeatsPill+ can be really loud on full volume and is yet a small little thing. So happy with my purchase.

    Great speaker

    I've had the speaker for about a week now. For the price and the size, it is a great speaker. I've used it inside and outside. I have no complaints about the speaker. The bag could use some work. It offers little to no protection. I have the last version of the the beats bill and the neoprene case seems to have enough padding to protects the speaker while it's in your backpack, etc.

    For the Size it's Great, but a Downgrade from the XL

    Just purchased the Pill+ after returning my XL, was very excited about the new software and iPhone application, and smaller size of course. It is loud, I wouldn't say as loud as the XL and it seriously lacks base.

    Speakers are great for soft songs with great sound quality. But the second a heavy base song comes on, everything gets distorted and kills the mood. Would not be able to hold a small party with this speaker, more of a every day around the house speaker.

    Generally disappointed with base, I would rather larger speakers with deeper base than portable. If I wanted portability I would of purchased the regular beats pill.

    Amazing sound

    I've had the pill+ for about a week now and LOVE it! I was debating between this and the UE Boom 2 and am very happy with my choice as I like just bringing my lightning cable, phone, and pill+ with me and not having to worry about an extra mini usb cable 2. The form factor is awesome and the all black looks sexy. Sound quality is on point. I've used this outside by the beach with waves rolling in and I can still hear it crystal clear. Been listening to a lot of Kygo lately too and the bass sounds even better than on my car! Been listening to Beats 1 radio a lot on this and just super stoked! If you get this you won't be disappointed :)

    Good Speaker! but not for Beats!!

    Was very hesitant to send Apple my Beats Pill XL even with the recall because the speaker was amazing. So I finally caved and sent it to them and got the new Beats Pill+, and expectations not met at all. Although the speaker is nice one it's over priced for the product your receiving and it's not that loud and the bass gets distorted if you turn the volume all the way up

    Well designed and great sound

    Good bye Bose Soundlink mini. There are lots of things to say about the new Beats pill + speakers. First, the design is so attractive and love the lighten B sign on top. Can I use it as a flashlight??? Why not, it is bright enough. Pairing is straight forward. Second, the sound. Well balanced sound and very loud! It is always good to adjust the equalizer from the source. Third, it is light enough to carry with you everywhere. I travel a lot, therefore I just put it in my hand luggage and voila, I am ready to go. And lastly, the charging connection uses lightning. So you can also charge your iPhone. You can also see the battery percentage in iOS notification. The battery life is also great.

    Do not hesitate buying this product, I am sure you will love it.

    Best in Speaker Availible in Category

    Had previously used the Bose Sound Link mini before purchasing this, and like everyone before shelling out almost £190 wanted to make sure I was getting the best speaker availible. Opted for the Beats Pill+ and it is fair to say I was extremely pleased! To anyone struggling to decide between the 2 products, I encourage you to try out the Beats Pill+ as the sound is fantastic! Very clear and extraordinarily loud for a speaker of it's size.

    The Best Bluetooth Speaker

    I highly recommend buying this product. It's sounds amazing. It's unbelievable how much sound comes out of such a small speaker. It looks really really good. It is the perfect size. I haven't had any issues with this product. I really love this product.

    Overpriced eye candy

    After searching the web and comparing different model it came down to a couple of choices, Beats pill 2.0 or Bose. I went with the Beats and sorry i did so. Arrived with all its packaging intact, Plugged it in and set-up / pairing was a breeze thats where the good feeling ended. It will not take a charge or hold one for that matter.After looking around the web i found numerous complaints over the same issue, with various remedies, wrapping the cord around it, leaning it a certain way, ect. Really? a new piece of equipment and you have to stand on your head to get it to work properly, no thanks, back it went. Dr. Dre can take his own Pill, and not orally.

    Super Loud, filled room and perfect Bass and Mids....JUST AMAZING experienc

    I am loving this portable device, rich sound, filled room experience with well balanced sound (Bass, Mids, Treble). I think I ll buy the 2nd speaker also to experience the Left Right stereo sound. Its already a stereo but a wide stereo sound in a bigger room needs 2nd speaker will be a great experience.

    But I am amazed with the portable wire-free device is a very convenient device Apple has made, no wires cant believe it. No compromise on sound.

    Go for it.

    Great speaker!

    I have had 2 other bluetooth speakers. A JBL Flip, and a Bose Soundlink Mini 1. Both were good speakers, (JBL was decent but not rich enough sound. Bose was a little to much bass) but this Beats Pill + is the best I've had so far.

    Before you do anything go to your music setting on your device and play around with the equalizer settings. For me using the "Loudness" setting on my iPhone produced the best sound.

    Keep in mind that no matter what speaker you get, not all songs are going to sound great. You may be playing 1 song that sounds rich and clear, then the next will not. It's not the speaker, it's just how the song was mixed.

    My only nit pick is that the sleeve that comes with the speaker is basically worthless. It would've been nice to have some type of padded case come with it.

    Outstanding

    Many have already commented on the build and look of the speaker so I do not need to repeat. It is beautiful and well made, as you would expect from Apple.

    I also found the sound quality outstanding for its size. There is a clarity to the sound that is hard to describe. This clarity extends to the base, which is strong and "natural." I read somewhere that the previous Beats have boosted base to give a booming effect which some people here mistaken it as "good" and "strong" base. It is not, it distorts the base so everything, including human voice, all has an artificial baritone quality to it.

    The best feature of the speaker is how well and easy it connects to your devices. Once paired, all you have to do is to turn on the speaker and it will be automatically connected to your device. Most of the other bluetooth devices or adapters often require you to turn it on and then connect in two separate steps. This small thing makes using the speaker so much easier and enjoyable. Would be it even better to give us the option to leave the speaker in the stand-by mode so we don't even need to physically turn it on each time?

    I bought this with the $60 Apple music promotion, and even without it I still think it is a great product for your Apple devices.

    Great sounding speaker!

    I recently purchased this product with the intention of returning it if I wasn't satisfied. I found the reviews were all over the place. Overall, I was very impressed with the sound and build quality. I was expecting a bass focused product, and found it to have a very balanced sound. Drums and acoustic guitar sound amazing and there's no degradation of sound at higher volumes. I don't like Bluetooth connections and wish that the speaker acted more like an AirPlay devices, but I really appreciate the dj mode. I really like that this speaker is built with the intention of software updates and would warmly welcome improvements on AirPlay, the addition of an equalizer, and an auto on feature when connected to 3.5mm audio and plugged in. Overall, I was surprised with the speakers performance and would recommend the purchase.
