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).

Titanium tube dampeners

I have used your products in the past, always with great satisfaction! The titanium tube dampeners have improved the sound of my system in so many ways (more extended highs, tighter bass, etc.) Thank you so much! Gary

Great fit, solid build quality

I recently purchased a used tube-powered phono preamplifier and noticed that one side was noisier than the other at high-than-normal listening levels (with no record playing). I removed and re-seated all the tubes and the noise floor dropped. On advice of a friend, I also ordered the HAL-O III Stabilizers and some De-OxIT Gold. Once both arrived, I removed the tubes again, cleaned each pin thoroughly with De-OxIT to and re-seated each tube carefully, then slid the Stabilizers around each one according to the instructions. The noise floor dropped yet again, this time allowing me to turn up the volume several more percent on my McIntosh C47 before any noise could be heard at the listening position, and there is less asymmetry in the noise heard (the left channel used to be very pronounced, now it's barely audible, and the right side went from quiet to nearly silent at obscene volume levels. I also noticed the tubes are markedly less resonant when tapped, which I suppose is the entire point of the Stabilizer. Thanks, Herbie!

10 Stars? YES!

10 stars possible? Really quite surprising how much of an improvement over my beloved RX dampers I have on all 26 tubes in my system. I have been using the RX now for many years successfully on every tube type I have tried them on. I recently had to replace my RX for my preamp power tubes due to a different size and decided to try the Halo-III. Wow, what a difference these make. Now, I am having to consider upgrading all my other RX to the Halo-III's when I can. These are simply sublime. A must-try product. Well done, Robert!

Nice products

Herbie's tube instruments were recommended by multiple members in my hobby groups/circles over a few months. When I ran into some power tubes that had a ringing issue, I decided it was time to give some type of tube dampening a try. I researched a few and kept coming back to Herbie's website. I liked the concept and no-BS manner in which his products are presented. No outlandish claims to convince you that they are worth more, just what it is, what it's made of, what it does, and the price. So far I have tried to the middle-grade tube instruments in multiple sizes and the Premium tube instruments in one size. They have served their purpose well. If you need devices like this for your amp and you want something that looks professional and works better than it needs to, give them a try. In this case, you get what you pay for. I have my eye on one of his turntable mats next. Happy listening!

Focus Focus Focus

The overall effect these Hal-o tube dampeners have on my Luxman sq-n100 amp is greater focus. Absolutely more clarity to snare drums and better definition to the high-hat. Bass is now almost too much with this 12 watt amp that power my Tekton Design Perfect Set speakers. Outstanding product!
