Do you have a link to the speakers that are used for the speaker pill, the current one seems to be broken and I cant find the replacements anywhere

Just wanted to add a comment regarding where to find the actual replacement speakers for the Beats Pill 1.0. I quite certain that the over all size of each individual speaker is 1" including the plastic bezel around the speaker. The actual size of the speaker itself is 3/4" and I believe I have found a replacement speaker to use if one of the speakers in your Beats Pill 1.0 gets blown or damaged. Below is the link to the replacement speaker, found on www.partsexpress.com. It looks almost identical to the stock speaker installed in the Pill 1.0, minus the custom bezel around the speaker that is used to secure the speakers inside the Pill.

Buying all 4 speakers at once saves you 75 cent compared to the price of buying just a single speaker.

Hope this helps anyone looking for replacement speakers for their Beats Pill 1.0

I plugged my speaker in because it needed a charge and the metal piece inside the speaker went into it help
