You can't control this.

It is up to each browser on how they have chosen to implement each file type - whether to download or open.  In my browser it downloads mp3 files.  In yours it does not.

You could put up instructions:
To download this file right click on the link and choose "Save As..."

Your first coding itself is enough to download mp3.

<a href="audio.mp3">Click here to Download</a>
