Beats Pill

Who makes it: Beats by Dre

What it costs: $200 each

Why we like it: Two is better than one, and three are better than two. Beats's update of its portable Bluetooth speaker delivers a nifty "Tap to Pair" feature that uses NFC technology to let people daisy-chain their Pills, or create left-right speaker pairs. It won't be too hard to swallow the cost when also considering a new charge-out USB port that can load up your iPhone or Galaxy S with some sorely needed juice. Add in nicely-tuned music and the ability to use it as a speakerphone, and you might find love at first sound.
