If you\u2019re looking for a speaker companion, one that emphasises bass, the Beats Pill+ is making a really good argument. Equipped with drivers that offer great sounding bass, stuffed into a tiny chassis, the Beats Pill+ Speaker is one of the best speakers for on-the-go music\u2014especially if you\u2019re a fan of hip-hop, rap, and other bass-focused music.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Beats Pill+ Speaker Review\r\nA great companion to have for lovers of hip-hop and rap, with its emphasis on bass and a compact design that allows it to be placed anyway at any time.\r\n\r\nPerformance\r\nThe Beats Pill+ focuses largely on bass. It\u2019s full, deep, and quite enveloping. Filling a small room with deep notes is a great experience, especially for a 12 hour battery life. But if you prefer music with higher notes\u2014rock, classical music, and so on\u2014sound quality does falter a bit. The problem is bass tends to overpower other notes. On one hand, that\u2019s not a problem when it comes to hip-hop and rap; that extra bass goes a long way. On the other hand, it alienates other groups of music lovers. Look to the JBL Charge 3 Speaker for a fuller sounding speaker.\r\nDesign\r\nConsidering the performance of the Beats Pill+ Speaker, we were rather surprised it came out of such a small speaker. It\u2019s 8-inches like and cylindrical in shape. It isn\u2019t fitting in pockets any time soon, but definitely fits comfortably on an end table without stealing too much real estate. It has a small hidden compartment that holds a USB port, charging port, and audio jack. So if you\u2019ve got a smartphone that needs a quick charge, use its USB port. Furthermore, if you bring two Beats Pill+ portable speakers together, use the Pill app to create a dual-stereo experience.\r\nValue\r\nDuring our Beats Pill review, we realized the sound quality and overall performance is still very good. Compared to other portable Bluetooth speakers, it\u2019s certainly up there as one of the better sounding speakers, and it may earn our respect yet. But is it worth $126? Not if you aren\u2019t a fan of Dre\u2019s line of sound peripherals or prefer music other than hip-hop and rap. Value is lost to you on that front; otherwise, you\u2019re better off purchasing a Oontz Angle 3 Speaker, which has great sound quality at a fifth of the cost. If you prefer smart home functions, stick to the Amazon Echo Dot Speaker.\r\nBeats Pill+ Speaker Review Wrap Up\r\nEven though the Beats Pill+ Speaker focused heavily on bass, it\u2019s still a great speaker. Someone who likes rap and hip-hop are getting a much needed companion with this speaker. It can pump out great sound quality, charge your phone, and last a solid 12 hours. That makes up for a few of its flat notes.
