Check Out the New Beats by Dre “Pill”

Beats by Dre have taken a stranglehold on the headphone market, and now they are poised to take a shot at the portable Bluetooth audio game for their first post-Monster product. The “Pill” is an NFC-equipped, 2.1 speaker that will run you $200 and will be available in red, black or white.

The battery life will last you around 7 hours for continuous play and features a micro-USB charging port. The device also comes with a  3.5mm input jack if you’d like to make a go of it without the Bluetooth technology.
