We’re back with more headphone deals, namely a rare Audio-Technica ATH-M30x Professional Studio Monitor Headphones deal on Amazon. The offer brings the ATH-M30x headphones down to $79 from the original price of $109 for a $30 discount. As the ATH-M30x are studio monitor headphones, this gives you the excuse to finally experience studio headphones — with a discount to boot.

Why you should buy the Audio-Technica ATH-M30x

From first glance, the ATH-M30x are pretty standard headphones. They’re black, over-ear, closed-back, and wired. If you look closely, you’ll see that they have a 1/8-inch TRS connector but also come with a 1/4-inch adapter, but nothing too intense yet. The ear cups look (and feel) a bit softer than average and the headband is way more padded than the average pair of headphones, sure, but what is going on inside that makes the ATH-M30x stand out?

The ATH-M30x have 40mm drivers and relay a focused response that slightly favors the critical dialog frequency range. This means that you’re going to be able to hear voices a bit better and can keep a close eye on conversations. This isn’t to say that music and other sounds will die off in the background, but instead contributes to the idea of the ATH-M30x’s focus.

How does this come together with the design of the ATH-M30x to make worthwhile headphones? Maneuverable earcups. For starters, they can swivel at 15 degrees in the “in use” position, granting a low-effort great fit for just about every head. Next, and quite fittingly for Halloween, they can pull an Exorcist and swivel 180-degrees to provide what Audio-Technica refers to as “one-ear DJ style monitoring.” As you can see, it’s all about crisp focus and a design that follows.

So, if you’re interested in having some good studio monitor headphones, why not pick up the ATH-M30x while they are $30 off? Remember, the Audio-Technica ATH-M30x normally go for $109, but for this deal they’ve come down to a friendlier $79 price. And remember, since the deal is on Amazon, you get to take advantage of any Amazon Prime bonuses you might have as well. So what are you waiting for?

Ebay home learning sale - Sennheiser HD 350BT headphones

Time for a new pair of cans? Right now Walmart has a great deal on a cheap model from a high quality brand. The Sennheiser HD 350BT over-ear headphones are $39 off, bringing their price down from $120 to $81. Walmart must be trying to get rid of them. With that in mind, make sure to grab them before they sell out.

Why you should buy the Sennheiser HD 350BT
Sennheiser, a company that nearly always has something in our listing of the best headphones, created the HD 350BT with just a couple of things in mind. If you're familiar with the Beats headphones line, and we're sure you are, then the first objective won't surprise you; they wanted to create headphones with an intense sound profile, especially emphasizing a deep bass range. Secondly, they wanted to create a streamlined approach to headphones, using a simple and minimalist style so the average person can start using them right away without vast audiophile-level knowledge. For example, in the Sennheiser Smart Control App, you can choose between listening modes for music, news, podcasts, and films to suit your needs quickly and comfortably on the go.

Sony WH-CH710N -- $68, was $150

Sony might be best known for its Playstation consoles, but it also makes some of the best headphones on the market. Of course, the Sony WH-CH710N aren't the best, and they really aren't meant to be given their price, but they still manage a good and clean sound. The audio won't blow you away, but it's dependable and great for the price. The WH-CH710N also uses Artificial Intelligence Noise Cancellation (AINC), which is a step below Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) technology and is good enough for most cases, although it won't block out the sound of somebody hammering away next door. Even so, we like it as one of the better budget Cyber Monday headphone deals you'll find.
