The product has however been removed from the stalls, but is still considered to be of very good quality by many customers.
To everyone’s surprise, the audio accessories manufacturer Beats acquired by Apple in 2014 has just unveiled a new edition of its Pills+ speaker. We recognize the iconic design of the device in the shape of a pill, but this time embellished with an ocher and black color inspired, according to the brand, by the Sonoran desert . A large arid expanse in California and Mexico, this region has not yet inspired a nomenclature for macOS.
Why choose this location? Because in fact the appearance of the speaker is the result of the work of Beats in collaboration with Book Projects, a company created by the American basketball player and boyfriend of Kendall Jenner Devin Booker . The player is a fullback for the Suns team in Phoenix, a large city in Arizona where the Sonoran Desert occupies a good part of the territory.
With a battery life of twelve hours, the Beats Pills+ speaker is also available in black, red and white. The device connects via Bluetooth with your iPhone , iPad or Mac and can also pair with Android. What’s more, users can synchronize a speaker with another of the same brand to enjoy a dual sound source as Bose or Sonos also do.
The Beats Pills+ is recharged with a Lightning socket , the associated USB-A cable being provided in the box. The speaker is also capable of powering your iPhone on the go, so you don’t have to carry an extra power bank with you. And for the price? Count around two hundred euros depending on the version chosen, even if reductions are regularly offered by specialist retailers since the Pills+ is no longer mass-produced.
Soon in store?
Indeed, even if the announcement of Beats concerning this new model is illustrated, nothing indicates for the moment that the range is indeed resuscitated. It could thus only be a simple concept , without marketing ambition on the part of the American.
If the Pills+ from Book Projects sees the light of day, it may however be sold at a less advantageous price than the classic versions because of its original partnership with the studio. Recently, Beats also unveiled some limited-edition headphones and earphones .
