Sales like these just go to show that Black Friday doesn't always offer the best deals. Right now, Amazon's one-day sale on audio equipment and musical instruments includes several pairs of best-selling Audio-Technica headphones at prices which smash the discounts being offered over Black Friday weekend. Today's sale even brings most of the headphones down to a new low price that's never been reached until now.

The most notable of Audio-Technica's headphones are the highly-reviewed ATH-M50x headphones which normally sell for $149. Black Friday offered a $20 discount down to $129, but today's sale drops the price of these headphones down to just $102.99. With over 5,100 customer reviews resulting in a rating of 4.6 out of 5 stars at Amazon, it's easy to see the passion for this product. It's hard to go wrong with this option.

The most affordable of the headphones on sale today are Audio-Technica's ATH-M20x. The current discount to $34.50 is $5 below the Black Friday pricing and $15 below the regular cost. While they've sold as low as $33 in the past, this is their next best price ever. They're very well-rated too with 4.4 out of 5 stars based on nearly 1,000 reviews.

Audio-Technica's ATH-M60x headphones are the final pair featured in today's sale, and this is one which didn't see a discount during this year's Black Friday offers. Though it regularly sells for $199, today's offer cuts the price by $50 and nabs you the headphones at their first ever major discount — $149.

Amazon's prices on these headphones expire later tonight, so don't wait too long to order if you're interested. Other essential audio gear is also discounted in the sale while it lasts.
