Looks slick but a bit baffling

Beats By Dr Dre Pill 2.0 Price: €200 Rating: HH
No matter how much one 'understands' the appeal of Beats By Dr Dre, speakers like this are baffling. It's a really small device (about the size of a phone), with decent(ish) wireless audio (over Bluetooth) that can play your phone, tablet or laptop music at up to around 25 feet.
And it leaves me wondering: who is it aimed at? If you're looking for audio in a bedroom or kitchen, there are much better options available for half the price. If you're out and about, this doesn't pump out enough quality to be heard over gusts of wind. So who is it aimed at? Teenagers on buses?
