What’s in the box?
The box contains the headset, charging case, USB cable, extra ear tips and a guide.
A Closer Look
Charging the headset was very easy – just leave them in the charging case and plug in. You get around 6 – 8 hours of battery life from the headset, but you also get an additional 30 hours of charging time from a fully charged case which should mean you are never without a charge! There are lights on the side of the case to show the status of charging along with the remaining charges left in the case.
Syncing the headset with any Bluetooth enabled device was also very simple and when you then take them out of the case they are automatically paired again.
The box contains replacement tips so that you can find the ones that best fit your ears. When you do they fit nicely and comfortably ensuring an all round pleasant listening experience.
The headset is also water resistant (IPX4 for those who want to know that sort of thing), this includes sweat. I wouldn’t recommend wearing them in the shower though, but wearing them in the rain shouldn’t cause any problems at all.
The sound quality is really very good, and you can really hear the bass coming through. Qualcomm aptX audio provides lag-free CD quality sound and that works very well.
The headphones have a diamond patterned shell which helps keep them scratch and fingerprint free.
When making or receiving phone calls, you can hear clear audio in both ears and the dual mics in the headset capture the audio in a variety of different noisy situations very well. You can also use Siri or Google Assistant at the tap of the headset.
My only negative comment that I can make is that the charging / carry case is actually quite bulky. If you are carrying it in a bag then you probably won’t notice it, but if you want to slip it into your jeans pocket you will feel it!
The Helm Audio True Wireless 5.0 is available now priced around $129.99 and are available in either Black or Onyx. If you are in the market for a high quality sounding set of wireless headphones with a fantastic battery life then you really want to take these out for a listen – you won’t be disappointed.
