This post was created in partnership with The Wirecutter, a list of the best technology to buy. Read their continuously updated list of deals at TheWirecutter.com.

You may have already seen Engadget posting reviews from our friends at The Wirecutter. Now, from time to time, we'll also be publishing their recommended deals on some of their top picks. Read on, and strike while the iron is hot -- some of these sales could expire mighty soon.

Belkin QODE Ultimate Pro iPad Air 2 Keyboard Case White

The Wirecutter's best deals: an iPad case, 2TB hard drive, and more

Street Price: $120; MSRP: $150; Deal Price: $100

This is a great deal on one of our upcoming top picks. It regularly sells around $120, and this is the lowest price we've seen on the case. The price matches one we saw very briefly during a Lightning Deal on Amazon's Prime Day, but unlike that sale this deal price is only available on the white version of the case.

The Belkin QODE Ultimate Pro is our upcoming pick for the best iPad Air 2 keyboard case. Dan Frakes writes, "It's not cheap, but it's the most versatile and complete keyboard case on the market thanks to a good keyboard with all the keys in the right places, backlit keys, multi-device pairing, multiple angles, landscape and portrait orientation, and a detachable top case for when you don't need the keyboard."

Seagate Backup Plus Slim 2TB Portable Hard Drive

Street Price: $90; MSRP: $130; Deal Price: $80 with code EMCAWAS23

To get this deal price, use the code EMCAWAS23 when checking out (you'll also need a Newegg login). This matches the best price we've ever seen on this drive. It dropped to this price a couple of times during last year's holiday season, but since then the deals have been rare.

The 2TB Seagate Backup Plus Slim is our top pick for best portable hard drive. Kimber Streams called it "the best portable hard drive for most people because it's reliable and sturdily built. It's also more compact, lighter, and faster than our previous recommendation."

Beyerdynamic MMX 102iE In-Ear Headphones

Street Price: $98; MSRP: $139; Deal Price: $79

Over the last couple of months these headphones have settled around a $100 street price while occasionally dropping to $90. While only about $10 better than those drops, this deal is the lowest price we've ever seen.

These are our pick for the best $100 in-ear headphones. Lauren Dragan said they "are small, comfortable, fit everyone well and have a pleasing sound profile."

She added that they have very light earbuds with nothing pulling them down so that "Once you have these in place, they don't move around much. In fact, they were so comfortable that I could see myself forgetting that they were in my ears."

UE MEGABOOM Wireless Bluetooth Speaker

Street Price: $300; MSRP: $300; Deal Price: $270

While we've seen a much better price through T-Mobile way back in May, where it was available for $216 with a promo code, this speaker rarely goes on sale. This $30 off deal can be found at both Amazon and Best Buy and all colors are available.

The UE Megaboom is our pick for the best water-resistent Bluetooth speaker. Brent Butterworth said, "The Megaboom is an upscale outdoor Bluetooth speaker in every way. It features a rugged design that's IPX7-rated (more on this rating in a moment), so it's truly waterproof down to 1 meter. It plays loud enough to fill a patio with sound, and it has enough bass to get you dancing (if you're so inclined). It's small enough to pack in a suitcase or beach bag. It works with a free iOS/Android app that accesses several special sound modes plus some cool, useful features. It's expensive at $300, but you get a lot for those three bills."

Deals change all the time, and some of these may have expired. To see an updated list of current deals, please go to The Wirecutter.com.
