HELM Audio is set to debut its industry disruptive line of products including HELM True Wireless Headphones, the HELM Studio Planar Over-Ear Headphones and the HELM Boost Cable- the world’s first in-line cable amplifier delivering studio quality amplification on mobile devices powered by THX AAA™ technology

Hong Kong, S.A.R. – November 15, 2018  Premier consumer electronics company, HELM Audio is pleased to announce their North American launch spearheading their mission to use cutting-edge craftsmanship to deliver products with transcendent clarity, connectivity, and comfort. To honor this promise HELM Audio is debuting three premium audio products - the HELM Studio Planar Headphones ($349.99), the HELM True Wireless Headphones ($99.99), and the HELM Boost Cable, powered by THX Achromatic Audio Amplifier (THX AAA™) technology ($99.99). The HELM Studio Planar and the HELM Boost Cable is now available for an early bird offer and their True Wireless is now available for pre-order at and Amazon later this month.

HELM Audio’s flagship product is their HELM Studio Planar Headphones using drivers that are rectangular (most are round) with silver coiling, the highest conductive metal - an industry first. The drivers measure 66mm (most are 50mm) and the rectangular design flexes more evenly than both round planar and dynamic drivers minimizing distortion and delayed resonance while increasing accuracy and phase coherence. The silver voice coils significantly improve conductivity between high performance neodymium magnets, resulting in a superb audiophile-grade soundstage that makes you feel like you’re right in front of your favorite artist.
Additionally, HELM Audio made the Studio Planar lightweight but extremely durable and compact using high-grade aluminum, so you’ll feel confident and cool wearing them at home, at the studio, or on the go. The ear cups are magnetically removable/replaceable and rotate completely flat for effortless storage
HELM Boost Cable, the world’s first in-line amp cable powered by the THX AAA™ amplifier, which allows for studio quality amplification on mobile devices. The HELM Boost Cable is integrated into a dual-ended 3.5mm silver conductor cable compatible with any 3.5mm jack or dongle delivering maximum volume, improved sound quality (true linear amplification), and a user-controlled bass boost feature that works with almost any mobile device on the market.

THX AAA delivers the ultimate no-compromise audio experience with the world’s highest fidelity audio, achieving higher peak output power, and maximizing battery life. Additionally, THX AAA reduces harmonic, intermodulation, and crossover distortion by 20-40 dB to ensure a realistic and fatigue-free listening experience.
“We are excited to partner with Helm Audio to bring the THX AAA experience to consumers as they embark on launching the HELM Boost Cable,” said Jason Fiber, Senior Vice President, Mobile, THX Ltd. “Helm Audio shares our passion for innovation and creativity providing unlimited possibilities for consumers to access premium quality audio experiences on the go.”

HELM Audio’s True Wireless series focuses on bringing high-end audiophile sound to the TWS space. At HELM Audio, sound quality, ultimate comfort, and fit are primary product focuses. HELM True Wireless Headphones feature a fit that’s secure for commuting and working out with a scratchproof resilient body and IPX4 water resistance. Additionally, HELM True Wireless Headphones feature industry-leading connectivity with their patent pending HELIX Antenna delivering a whopping 80+ ft. range.

HELM Audio products are engineered for high-end performance, believing audiophiles and mass-market consumers alike are tired of the mediocre sound other audio brands find acceptable only to maintain their inflated margins. “Our goal is to become known for our superior sound, innovative designs, at unprecedented value,” says HELM Audio’s CEO, Eric Johnson, who has worked for over 20 years delivering premium products for a variety of successful CE corporations. Eric brings best-in-class manufacturing practices and relationships to deliver meticulous quality and reliability.

Co-Founder Bryn Griffiths is a serial entrepreneur and has launched several successful companies in technology and media spaces. Griffith’s passion is developing technology and companies with an edge that brings something radically different to customers. “Through revolutionary innovation, streamlined manufacturing, and authentic marketing we deliver a level of sound and value that no other brand can,” says Griffiths, “for us this means re-crafting driver technology by creating the world’s first rectangular driver with a silver voice coil for improved soundstage, detail, and lower distortion,” he added.
