Not a premium product
One of the few disappointing purchases from Drop. Large design and fragile carry case. I continued using wired IEMs until I got Sony XM3s that are closer to what I was looking for, and have ANC, but the ANC true wireless market expanded since these were offered.

Sound is ok and range is good but....
Within a year, developed charging issues on one of the earbuds. The charging cannot auto-switch off when its full, causing it to drain the charging case and making the earbud hot. Gave up using it just over a year.

Sound great.
Easy fit into the ear canal. A good fit meant deeper, tighter bass.

My new choice for Bluetooth IEM.
Those are the best sounding Bluetooth IEM that I have. However they do have the weirdest pairing that I ever seen and the buttons in it are not practical at all.

Great (especially for price)
For the price, outstanding. Great soundstage and deep base. Lacks a bit of resolution at the high end. Switched to Comply ear-tips for running to ensure secure fit.

Great value for the money !
What I like the most about the IEM is how good it holds inside the ear. The audio quality is sufficient for me, not the best.

Faulty pairing and bloated bass
The IEMs arrived beautifully packaged. Opened with high anticipation. Getting the case open requires a fair bit of force and strong fingernails, although the instructions do say this eases with use. Of the supplied ear tips, there was a size that fitted perfectly. Once fully charged I set about pairing the left and right IEM, which should be automatic. I received the correct prompts from each capsule. I then paired the left capsule with my bluetooth device. The instructions are clear and explicit about how to do this. Try as I may I could not get a consistent pairing between the left and right capsules. They paired, but the sound suffered drop outs and crackles on the right channel with the tiniest movement of the head. This happened with 5 different devices, although capsule pairing should be device agnostic. The left channel paired with every device perfectly, just not to the right channel. To the sound... really not what I expected...the bass was very thick and bloated. lots of it, but neither fast nor tuneful. It reminded me of early boomboxes. Perhaps this is to some tastes, but I found it too dominant on all types of music that I tried. The midrange was OK, lacking in sparkle and air but acceptable for the price. High treble seemed, if anything, recessed and a little steely. Perhaps my pair had sonic issues relating to the drop outs. We'll see when my replacements arrive.

Good but Flawed
The Good: -Sound Quality (With some exceptions) -Battery Life -Buttons -Cheap The Bad: -Finicky Pairing -Slight Audible Hissing on Quiet Songs (Ballads, etc..) Overall, even with all its flaws, I still quite like the Helm TWS 5.0 while its not killer for anything aside from the price, its still a decent pair of TWS. While I wouldn't recommend it for purely listening, if you want something for commuting and exercising it will do the job quite well.

Decent when working
Drop originally sent the Helm 4.0 IEMs by accident. Helm soon followed up with me and sent me the 5.0 IEMs, with a note stating I can keep the 4.0 version. The 5.0 IEMs had noticeably better sound to their earlier version, but it wasn't by leaps and bounds. No matter, through light use -- walking to and from work everyday and the occasional bike ride -- both pairs failed within the first year of use. Only the left IEM works as the right IEM doesn't pair with the left. Even then, the earbuds generally disconnect after a few minutes of use, making them unusable. All-in-all, I've had an incredibly poor experience with the Helm IEMs and will avoid purchasing any in the future.
