Padded ovular ear cups that are magnetically removable form a comfortable seal around your ears with minimal clamping force while maintaining maximum noise isolation and bass. Housings/ear cups rotate completely flat for improved fit and effortless storage. The headband is fully adjustable and padded with high grade temper-foam to ensure long lasting comfort during extended listening sessions.
Most planar and audiophile/studio headphones suffer from low efficiently with an average sensitivity of 95 dB, which can’t be sufficiently powered by mobile devices—resulting in not enough volume or bass. Combining our silver coiling and high-energy neodymium magnets, HELM Studio Planar Headphones produce a much higher efficiency with a resistance of 107 dB.
We developed the world’s first (66mm!) rectangular drivers, which flex more evenly than both round planar and dynamic drivers—minimizing distortion and delayed resonance while increasing accuracy and phase coherence, since all parts of the diaphragm move in harmony together. Combined with an open-back design, rectangular drivers also distribute sound more evenly over the natural shape of your ears. These enhancements create an expansive ultra-realistic soundstage that makes you feel like you’re right in front of your favorite artist.
The brushed aluminum surfaces are fingerprint and scratch resistant. In addition to the rugged and compact outer construction, the driver’s diaphragms are coated with silver and proprietary polymers for increased resilience and flexibility—ensuring a lifetime of enjoyment with sound that actually improves over time.
