Beats launches Pill speaker and Executive headphones

Dr Dre adds travel-friendly, noise-cancelling cans and tiny Bluetooth speakers to his product range

Beats by Dr Dre has added two new products to its range: the Pill, a portable Bluetooth speaker; and the Executive headphones.

The latter are lightweight (340g), folding cans constructed from aluminium alloy, steel and leather. Designed for the traveller, they fold flat and come with noise-cancelling tech, powered by a pair of AAA batteries. They’re priced at US$300 (about £190) on the Beats US site.

The Pill is a tiny Bluetooth speaker measuring about 19cm in length, and weighing a paltry 310g. It’s equipped with Bluetooth for wireless audio streaming to a range of about 30 feet, and comes with NFC for easy pairing: just tap an NFC-equipped phone on the Pill and you’re golden. There’s a built-in battery offering seven hours of use, with automatic switch-off if a device is disconnected for more than 30 minutes. The Pill is priced at US$200 (£125).

We’ll be getting our mitts on both products as soon as is physically possible, so look out for full reviews in the near future.
