Fully wireless headphones in a pod or bud format, are all the rage these days thanks to Apple’s AirPods, which in turn spawned other competing devices from various tech companies. One of these companies is HELM, and its True Wireless Headphones cost $60 less than the cheapest AirPod model, yet the buds offer nearly the same level of quality sound.

Now they’re not perfect and have a few issues that AirPods do not, but overall, these $99 wireless headphones sound great, fit snuggly, and do compete with Apple’s more expensive Pods. I cover the pros and cons of the HELM True Wireless Headphones in the video below, so please check it out.

For $99 these wireless ear buds from HELM sounds nearly as good as Apple's AirPods and provide mostly the same functions. There are a few minor issues such as a finicky case, and the need to physically turn them on and off for use, but overall they're a nice set of buds for $99.
