HAL-O III brings out the best potential in extremely hot-running audio rectifier, power tubes and other sensitive vacuum tubes. HAL‑O III subdues heater-generated vibrations and common microphonics, allowing a truer rectified current and truer amplified signal. A less-fuzzy, cleaner rectified current will typically cause other audio tubes in a component to render the music more clearly. Tube output will be more musical, more energetic and less vague, while maintaining your system's unique nature and character.

With spring-tempered titanium C-ring and annealed titanium isolation pads, HAL‑O III is appropriate for all vacuum tubes, ideal for extremely hot-running tubes, able to handle continuous tube heat in excess of 1000° F (538° C).


HAL-O III-7: For 7-pin miniature tubes and all tubes approximately 5/8" to 3/4" diameter (16mm to 19mm), including 0A2, 0B2, 0C2, 1S5, 12AE6, 12FK6, 12FM6, 12X4, 304B, 3A5, 3S4, 403A/B, 408A, 5591, 5651, 5654, 5654SQ/W, 6005, 6186, 6AK5, 6AK5W, 6AL5, 6AN4, 6AQ5, 6AQ6, 6AU6, 6BH6, 6C4, 6ER5, 6FG5, 6FQ5A, 6FS5, 6FY5, 6GK5, 6J1, 6J1P, 6J1P-EV, 6J6, 6N4, 6P17, 6X4, 6Z4, 7543, 9001, DCC90, DL92, EC90, EF95, M8100, OA2, OB2, OC2, SBA6.

Halo-65 dampers

Recently purchased another pair of Herbie’s Tube Dampers for a new pair of 300B’s. I’ve used them on all my tubes for years. An excellent product. They are an obvious sonic improvement on every tube I’ve used them on, and I use them on all the tubes in my system.

HAL-O III tube stabilizers: Great product and quick delivery

Installed five of the HAL-O III stabilizers in my Audio Note Meishu Tonmeister in two sessions. I saved the two AN4300 tubes for last, and this had the most significant affect. Clearer vocals, improved tonal clarity and focus. Helped reveal a significant difference in two good dacs that had previously sounded very much the same. I would recommend these.

Nothing to lose.

To the point. It works. I didn't expect much and I knew I could return them if I heard no difference. Unlike components and other items, there is no break in required for these. The difference was immediate and obvious. Much clearer sound.

Lowers the noise floor on my power amp.

The Herbie’s HAL-O III stabilisers on the driver tubes and 50% of the power tubes in my SAP Anniversary OTL cleaned up the soundstage and lowered the noise floor, giving my special power amplifier an added X factor in my revealing system. Surprised and totally delighted with the result.

Hal o lll

On my first listen I noticed everything was more THERE....more refined and more clear....voices was much more focused and it wasn't a small difference....i also actually forgot I installed them since I was doin a makeover and cleaning job...also rearranging things....it took me about 4 hrs to clear everything out and then put back into place....i had marked my speakers so to put them back in the same spot....well when I finally settled down I turned the system on to play some diana krall while I put everything back up....so after about 30 min of playing music I finally was relaxed enough to sit down and listen to maybe tweak a speaker in and out of forward or back a bit but when I sat down to listen I was in shock....i was thinking damn this thing sound better than ever but didn't know why, then it hit me....omg could this be these Hal o lll tube stabilizer....so I started to listen serious and was just amazed.....at first I couldn't explain it then I remembered....I have to say so far this is the best tweak I ever had....better than any power cable or speaker/interconnect.....truly shocked and amazed..!!

Superb product and Customer Service

My story will focus on Herbie's excellent Customer Service, rather than the quality of the product (the other reviews highlight this already, plus I'm back for more, which speaks for itself). I previously used other tube dampers from Herbie's, the rubber parts of the dampers perished over the years and so I emailed to ask what could be done about it (I wanted to move up to the HAL-O III). Long story short, they let me use my lifetime warranty to move up to this model, minus the cost of my original purchase. Oh yes, I also needed one of the three rings to be made to a custom size (due to tight spacing in my DAC), so they did this free of charge for me. Always a pleasure to deal with and the dampers sound superb - thanks guys!

A No Brainer

My system consists of Audio Research tubes stuff. Ref 6 preamp, VS 110 power amp and PH9 phono preamp. First I put the Herbie's tube rings on the vs 110 power amp. This power amp has 8 6550 Black Sable low noise tubes. For a listening test I put on a Blue Note CD. Ronnie Laws Tribute CD to the great sax player Eddie Harris. The first song on this CD is called "Listen Here." This CD starts with heavy crashes on cymbals following with a drums roll before Ronnie Laws start playing.. The crashing of the cymbals with Herbies rings produced a natural decay that I have never heard before in my system. The drum roll had more snap. Not louder but, more accurate. Ronnie Laws saxophone had better harmonics foundation with each note. Wow. Almost fell off my couch with a smile on my face. Next I put a Tommy Emmanuel CD called "Mystery" to hear what an acoustic guitar sounds like. Again the harmonic foundation and the musical decay was terrific. Next I put Herbies rings on my Ref 6 preamp which cost $14k and a new one would set you back 15k. Excellent sounding gear straight out of the box brand new. 600 hrs to break in. Who cares. The Ref 6 comes with tube rings on them that works very well by themselves. Put Herbie Tube rings thru the bottom being careful not to bend the pins on the tube. This include the rectifier tube Left the factory rings on the 6h30 tubes. Played the same CD's and the noise level dropped at least 3 db and the instrument focus was better. Next I put them on my phone preamp but, the DIN connect on the turntable's cable came apart. Sob. Could not do analog. After I pay my cable bill I will put 2 Herbie tube rings on my power tube to squeeze a little more quality sound out of my power tube amp. Herbies devices are not cheap but, if you own a tube power amp of any kind or quality and don't put these device on them after reading this *****, shame on you. The do help a quality preamp also.

Buy Herbie's tube dampers now

I have heard and read many positive reviews on Herbie's dampers over the years but never thought they would make a large improvement over the manufacture provided rings. I was way wrong. These made a huge improvement in SQ and are well worth the price. Per my title buy them now!

They work!

I was skeptical before ordering as I was afraid the dampers would make the sounder cleaner but perhaps also more technical, no as smooth as what you expect a tube amp to sound like.. Nothing of the kind, the sound did not lose any of the smooth tuby character. However, the biggest surprise for me what a huge improvement in soundstage. These babies are expensive but well worth the money. On the downside, I'm not impressed by customer service - I wrote twice, no response (I used the form, perhaps I should have just copied the email address).

HAL-O III ARC 75SE

I ordered two tube dampers for my amplifier an ARC 75 SE. I put these tube dampers on the 6H30 tubes. I can only say wow what a difference it made. The sound picture got bigger, it was as if a film was lifted away from the speaker. The base became much tighter and with more texture. But where these tube dampers really perform amazingly is the ability to bring sound to life. Just as if everything comes alive and the treble becomes more relaxed and more accurate without being intrusive.

HAL-O III ARC 75SE

I ordered two tube dampers for my amplifier an ARC 75 SE. I put these tube dampers on the 6H30 tubes. I can only say wow what a difference it made. The sound picture got bigger, it was as if a film was lifted away from the speaker. The base became much tighter and with more texture. But where these tube dampers really perform amazingly is the ability to bring sound to life. Just as if everything comes alive and the treble becomes more relaxed and more accurate without being intrusive.
