The Technical Reference

The Helios is a statement class product that represents a generational leap for us.
Recognized for it's legendary technical ability, the Helios disproves the stereotypes commonly associated with multi-BA driver earphones. The Helios offers an exceptionally clean sub-bass punch that hits hard, without coloring the clarity of vocal presentations.

Tuned for a smooth and detailed midrange, the Helios also features class-leading treble extension that pushes the limits of balanced armature tweeters. We combined the best features from different monitors into one exceptional product.

Powered by an integrated TrueX 4-Way crossover and FLAT technology, the Helios is sure to impress with its dynamism and vigour and will deliver an unrivaled audio experience.

Tuned in Collaboration with Subtonic

"There is a strong possibility it is the best sounding kilobuck IEM on the market today. In that vein, I have zero qualms giving the Helios my stamp of approval on the basis of sound quality."

Precogvision

"Resolution is superb across every instrument and frequency range. It’s more than worthy of the Helios’ kilobuck status"

FC Construct

“The Helios was what got me listening to all BA IEMs again… It is incredibly coherent and well-balanced”

Headfonics

"There's clever engineering ongoing here in addition to some compromises too, with the end result being a highly resolving set that is tuned well and sounds great."

TECHPOWERUP

“This sets a new benchmark for technical performance at the ~$1000 price point”

GoldenSound

"With price range leading technical performance across the board... that's Helios, and I can't really think of anything else that comes close"

Infinite Linearity

Featuring Filtered Linear Attenuation Tuning (FLAT) Technology - a proprietary circuit developed in-house with Subtonic.

Working synergistically with Helios’s TrueX 4-way crossover, the Helios will not be affected by impedance mismatch due to difference in source used. You will be able to listen to the same unimpeded sound regardless of the device you are using.

Premium Cables

The Helios comes bundled with premium quality Altalune Audio Nova 26AWG Type 2 Litz OCC copper cables that are designed to deliver an exceptional listening experience with great ergonomics and low impedance.

Each cable is designed down to the finest details such as solder used and are completely hand built in Singapore.

Exceptionally Durable

Crafted from high-grade T6 heat-treated AL6061 Aluminium alloy, the Helios is engineered for durability and long-lasting performance. The T6 heat treatment significantly improves its strength, hardness, and durability while also enhancing its resistance to corrosion and fatigue. This gives the maximum possible strength and hardness for our IEMs, ensuring that the Helios can withstand even the most rigorous use.

Whether you're performing on stage or listening on the go, the Helios Earphone is built to last
