HELM Audio is honoring frontline workers! Who is HELM Audio? They create a wide variety of audio devices and is driven by the belief that nothing should get in the way of a person and their music.
We were recently provided the HELM Audio True Wireless 5.0 In-Ear Headphones to check out. We are excited to share them with you. However, We think it’s amazing what HELM Audio is doing to honor frontline workers and we want to share that, as well.
They are asking frontline workers to tell their stories and giving these workers a discount on the True Wireless 5.0 Headphones. More information on their campaign is at the end of this review.

The sound coming from these headphones is very nice which is powered by the latest 24-bit aptX Audio Technology which focuses on HiFi Sound Quality. You will get a CD-like quality on your mobile devices.
The best part of the sound is the bass! However, the overall sounds in the mid and high levels are quite pleasant, as well.
The earpieces come with a portable charging case that has an indicator light on the front to show its battery level. You can get 30-40 hours, depending on the volume, with the charging case before the case needs to be charged.
When you place the earpieces in the charging case, they automatically power-off and begin charging. You should get anywhere from 6-8 hours of use on a fully charged earpiece.
The headphones automatically sync and pair with the device when they are removed from the charging case. You should not have to reconnect them. There is nothing more annoying than having to set up your device every time you use it.
The connection and range of these in-ear headphones are up to 60 feet which is great if you need to move around and not hold on to your mobile device or computer.
Design and Comfort
The earpieces are designed ergonomically to fit comfortably in your ear. They have an anti-slip silicone padding and are lightweight so they stay in your ears regardless of whether you are sitting or moving around.
Made with a fingerprint and scratch-resistant shell, they are also made with IPX4 water-resistance which means they are fine to wear in the rain and mud or when you sweat.
They are a little larger and if you have small ears, these might not be the best choice for you.
- Smart Buttons
- Dual Mics for Calls
- Voice Assistant
You can purchase these in-ear headphones for around $129.99 at most retailers, including HELM Audio.
Verdict: HELM True Wireless 5.0 In-Ear Headphones
These in-ear headphones provide a great sound, comfort (for most), and durability. The charge time is pretty nice so you do not need to be concerned with having dead earbuds when you need them. The price is fairly comparable to other similar products. That is why this would be a great choice for your new in-ear headphones.
