Speakers
-This unboxing is brought to you by Best Buy. Get the right gift at the right price, all at your ultimate holiday showroom. -In here, we've got a little speaker with a lot of sound. We're unboxing the Beats Pill. Let's get to it. This goes on, ah-hah. Bubble packs. And here it is, small as promised, the Beats Pill. And we've got it here in the color blue. It also comes in like a red, white, black. I think they've even got some neon colors, so lots to choose from. Already good. Let's see how it's packaged. Even here, it says small but loud. Excellent. So, you can take it to the park, to the next festival you go to. I'll unbox it. And-- Here it is. And it looks just like a pill. So, before we get to the actual speaker, let's see what this guy comes with. Okay, we've got a micro-USB cable. And thankfully, it comes with an auxiliary cable, so you can set up a direct line between your device and the speaker. Excellent. And then, we have our power brick. So, this is how this guy powers up. Nice. Okay. That's all the accessories. Let's get to the good stuff. Oh, look at what they did. Its package is like a pill. That's genius. I love it. And in here, we've got our paperwork. Okay. So, we've got our trusty quick start guide which will be useful because some of the buttons on this guy pull double-duty and do other things, like the volume button answers calls, things like that. Okay. Ready? It's time for my medicines. Oh, wow. We've got this nice high-quality feeling carrying case. And here's our pill. So, it's this beautiful blue color. All right, in here, we have instructions for answering a phone call, putting it on hold, switching. So, if you're streaming music from your smartphone to the pill and you get an incoming call, the music will actually pause and that call will come through the speakers. Awesome. Not so great if you're picnicking and you have an important call coming but great option. Okay. So, let's take that guy off. Gorgeous. And on the back here, now, this is interesting. It has built-in NFC. So, if you have an NFC-enabled phone like a Nexus 5 or Galaxy S4, you can actually pair it with this speaker by just tapping it and then the bluetooth connection will automatically be initiated. It's nice and light. It's also got this rubberized bottom. So, if you're playing music and you really crank up the bass, it won't move around. This guy is small, compact, and definitely explore through your audio files at 199. So, there you have it. We've unboxed the Beats Pill by Dr. Dre. For CNET.com, I'm Sharon Vaknin.
