Beats is bringing wireless goodness to the world this holiday season, with a brand new Pill, a jumbo-sized pill, and new wireless headphones.
The Pill and its new big brother, the Pill XL, are packing in brand new features this time around that make Beats’ portable Bluetooth speaker even more intriguing. Mainly, the new Pills use NFC in creative new ways that benefit you if you have a friend who also throws down for one of the two. By tapping two Pills together, you can make them sync to play the same song, or make them stereo speakers, with the respective speakers taking the left and right channels. You can expect 15 hours of battery life from both, and both can act as charging stations for another mobile device, if you find you have a little juice left over. And, to save power, the Pills will automatically shut down after ten minutes of down time.
We also have Studio Wireless Headphones coming. Everything from the Studio Headphones that hit earlier this year will be there – Adaptive Noise Cancellation, the Beats Acoustic Engine, and controls on the ear cup – just with the cable optional. When you go wireless, you’ll pair the Studio Wireless Headphones to your mobile device using Bluetooth, and can expect a 12-hour battery life. You can also choose to connect the headphones to your device using a standard cable, which will get you 20 hours of battery life.
All of the above will be arriving in stores in early December. The Beats Pill and Pill XL will go for $200 and $300, respectively, while the Studio Wireless Headphones will go for $380.
