Beats By Dr Dre Announce New Big Pill & Wireless Studio Headphones

By David Richards | Wednesday | 13/11/2013

Beats By Dr Dre who are the #1 headphone brand in Australia are set to release a new Pill XL speaker and a wireless version of their popular Studio headphone.

The Company who recently updated their Studio headphones, have announced a wireless version of their popular headphone as well as several new accessories for the Pill, which is a first for the company.

Like the wired version, the Studio Wireless Bluetooth headphones feature the company's Adaptive Noise Cancelling technology, designed to cancel ambient noise without affecting sound quality. A spokeswoman for the Company said the two versions have the same design and specs, including the same weight, although Beats declined to provide further technical information.

The headphones have on-ear controls; consumers can answer calls by pressing the B button on the ear cups. Other features include a build-in rechargeable battery, cable with in-line mic and remote, on-device battery indicator, cleaning cloth and a carrying case. The battery life is said to be 12 hours for wireless use and 20 hours for wired. They charge via MicroUSB.

Three colours will be available when the product is launched in Australia, Titanium, matte black and glossy black. This is Beats second noise-cancelling headphone.

Its new Bluetooth speaker, the Pill XL, is a super-sized version of the Pill speaker that launched in October 2012. The Pill XL features a built-in handle, battery indicator and 15 hours of play time. It will shut off automatically after not playing music for 10 minutes.

The speaker also has near field communications (NFC) technology, and users can tap two Pills XL speakers turning both devices into a stereo.

 When tapped together twice, one speaker will act at the left output and one will act as the right for stereo sound.

Pricing has not been announced for Australia.

The company also updated the original Pill speaker by adding the ability for the speaker to charge the connected mobile device. The design has also been tweaked, the spokeswoman said, with fixed buttons that don't need to be pushed as hard. The Pill also has NFC with tap to pair, tap to amplify, and tap to stereo features. A Pill can be tapped to a Pill XL to simultaneously play the same song, but they can't tap for stereo sound as the sound would be unbalanced, she explained.

It will come in six colours: red, black, blue, silver, pink and white. Both the Pill XL and updated Pill will be available in the New Year.

Among the accessories announced is the Pill bike mount has a swivel base, bottom strap mounts and a top strap a Pill silicone sleeve has a detachable magnetic cover and a carabiner. The sleeve comes in black or red, Beats is also launching Beats Characters as Pill holders.

LG Australia has finally rolled out their 65" Ultra High Definition TV offering in Australia and what you get is a TV that delivers a quantum leap in TV technology and surprisingly a significantly improved sound system that is delivered from pop down speakers but the big question is whether it is worth $6,999.
