Beats Pill XL – new, larger, and improved


The Beats audio range is still growing and renewing, and one of the latest additions is the Beats Pill XL bluetooth speaker, an extra large version of the popular Beats Pill portable bluetooth speaker.


Beats have been renewing several of their most popular products recently, including the Beats Studio headphones and the portable speaker range, with the regular size 2nd generation Pill speaker also getting some interesting new bluetooth features. These features have also been included in the new and larger Pill XL speaker.

Following in the footsteps of so many other portable bluetooth speaker brands that have released larger versions of their popular models, the Beats Pill XL will likely cater to those that want portability, but a bigger sound stage. Where the Beats Pill XL starts to get really interesting in that perspective is its ability to sync up with a fellow Pill XL speaker, creating either a wider, possible multi-room audio, or by creating true left/right stereo. Thanks to included NFC technology it’s as simple as tapping the speakers together once for same audio from both, or twice for left/right stereo separation. This should make getting two of these large Pills a very interesting option.

The battery is said to provide up to 15-hours of play time between charges, and should you run out of juice on your smartphone or tablet, you can also connect it to the speaker for charging.
