Beats: A Pill You Can Take In High School

Beats: A Pill You Can Take In High School

If it’s anything like the other products in the ever-burgeoning Beats franchise, the Beats Pill is likely a triumph of pricing over quality. It comes in at a Jamboxian $200, stands just two inches high, and works like any other portable speaker — via Bluetooth.

The Pill comes in red, black and white flavors, has volume switches, a pair of cables in the box (USB charger and 3.5mm audio cable) and also works for decidedly non-gangsta phone conferencing thanks to a built-in mic.

The blurb promises “soaring highs and deep, booming bass,” which is probably true, as deep, booming bass is the hallmark of Beats gear, usually at the expense of fidelity.

Middle-class school kids the world over can or the Pill right now.

    Funny looks and some 200 bucks for dual 1″ drivers. It’s clear people don’t care about sound quality anymore.
