HELM True Wireless 5.0 Headphones Review – Mega Improvements

HELM wasted no time in releasing the second version of its True Wireless Headphones, thanks to the arrival of the True Wireless 5.0 set only months after the original version released. This iteration has improved upon all aspects of the original, and directly addressed many of the complaints I had over its predecessor, so it’s safe to say I’m a fan.

I’m most impressed with the improved auto-connections and auto-charging, two features that were lacking in the original. The sound is also much more crisp and bass fueled thanks to the aptX 24-bit audio tech from Qualcomm. Oh, and you can actually open the damn case without the fear of ripping off a finger nail in the process, or smashing it out of frustration!

HELM really did improve on its True Wireless headphones in the 5.0 version, which also supports Bluetooth 5.0, so you get upwards of 60 feet of connectivity. You can check out my full review below in video form.

Review Summary

Build Quality - 8
Functionality - 8.5
Ease of Use - 8
Price - 8.5
Sound Quality - 9
Battery Life - 9



HELM took the critiques of its first True Wireless headphones to heart and corrected all of the flaws, so the True Wireless 5.0 is a much improved version and highly recommended for those looking for cheaper AirPod alternatives.
