We’re always on the prowl for awesome wireless speakers here at Cool Mom Tech, because let’s face it, we’re women and women like things to look clean and sharp. Oh, and when it comes to speakers, sound clean and sharp. You know of our abiding affection for the Jawbone Jambox, the little speaker with the big sound that fits in the palm of your hand, and now we’re excited to find another tiny speaker that rivals the Jambox–and maybe, just maybe, squeaks past it in sound quality and aesthetic appeal.
Beats Electronics introduces The Pill speaker,
or as they put it, Just what the Dr. ordered–the doctor being Dr. Dre.
The Pill is a jammin’ Bluetooth Wireless audio system in a sleek,
pill-shaped package available in black, red and white for a pretty
manageable $200. With four internal drivers, the sound is pretty
incredible; multi-layered with plenty of bass, and able to achieve a
great deal of volume without the distortion you often get from small
Pill is the first wireless speaker that lets you pair it to your phone
or audio player by just tapping it. With a built-in microphone for
speakerphone functionality, my husband and I had so much fun listening
to music and then calling each other on our cell phones over the Pill
speaker, seeing how far we could get away from our devices and still
have a clear call. The answer: up to 30 feet! Ah, amusement for geeks.
