New Beats Pill released – Apple's first speaker since 2015

Beats has not released new speaker models for a long time – the last was the Pill Plus model, which was officially discontinued back in 2022. Unlike Beats, its parent company Apple is sticking with the idea with its HomePod and HomePod Mini smart devices. Now the manufacturer is finally ready to present its new device – the upgraded Beats Pill 2024 model with an iconic design, a completely updated cartridge and an affordable price of $150.

Body and color

The appearance of the model is classic. A case with a metal grill and silicone edging protects the speaker. The controls are located on top in the form of three buttons: power, switch and volume. Three colors are available – red, black and gold. The device also has protection against water and dust according to the IP67 standard. This means that it can be immersed in water, but it is better to read the details in the manual.


Chris Welsh notes that the main problem with the speaker is its compact size, which requires compromises in sound quality. However, he also notes that additional and bonus features help the updated Beats Pill stand out from previous models.

The housing houses a low-frequency (LF) and high-frequency (HF) driver, with a 20% slope for a more natural sound. sound to the ears when the speaker is placed on a table. The main disadvantage is the lack of stereo sound, but this can be compensated for by combining two speakers.

Beats Pill supports lossless USB-C playback, making it a versatile port for connecting and charging other devices. The battery life of the model is up to 24 hours.

Like the company's current headphones, Pill is designed for Android and iOS. That is, from both platforms you can change settings and use the Find My or Find My Device functions. The only thing is, voice commands like “Hello, Siri” implemented only with a button. You need to connect the speaker to the device, manually activate the assistant, and only then contact Siri or Google Assistant.

«There are no major downsides to the updated Beats Pill, as long as you can put up with the monophonic sound. The model works well and withstands any outdoor adventure, and the battery lasts for a long time. Not to mention the many additional features beyond Bluetooth playback. For its price — the column is more than competitive» Chris Welsh
