Optrel e684 Helmet Trial Promotion
The Optrel e684 Silver Welding Helmet was designed especially for welding experts with varying job requirements and a need for an extensive range of individual adjustment options. It is the only helmet that features an autopilot feature, that automatically adjusts the shade level as your arc intensity changes. The Optrel e684 has a special "HD lens" which gives the welder a truer color and lets you see the clearest, most crisp view possible.

Adaptive Shade Autopilot
The adaptive shade level control automatically adjusts to the perfect shade level. Let me say that again so it sinks in. The Optrel e684 has an autopilot feature that automatically detects the amperage settings you're using and automatically adjusts the shade of the lens so you don't have to stop and manually make the adjustments. Going from grinding to MIG to TIG is no problem and no manual adjustments are needed. The Optrel e684 has an additional sensor that measures arc intensity and will automatically adjust the shade as the arc changes. This is a groundbreaking, unique feature that you will absolutely love.

High Definition Viewing
Similar to your new high definition television, the e684's special HD lens provides the truest color on the market. Its Class 1 angular dependency allows welders to see the clearest, crispest view possible, enabling you to better concentrate and make your weld wiht more precision.

Twilight Technology
Unlike other adaptive lenses that rapidly return to light, the Optrel e684 uses a twilight feature that restores light more naturally after you're done with your weld, presenting a smooth transition to your eyes. This unique, Optrel-exclusive feature will reduce your eye fatigue and help you work longer and safer.

Other Highlights:
• Shade level 2 ranges: 4/5-9 and 4/9-13
• Control unit outside the helmet
• Comfortable headband
• Ability to adapt the detection angle (60° or 120°)
• Sensitivity control
• Opening delay
• Grinding mode (shade level 4)
• Overhead welding
• Color true filter
• Hard hat can also be worn

Optrel E684 5 Bought the Optrel e684 to replace my 10 year old Optrel Satellite. The color and clarity on the e684 is even better than the Satellite. Another great helmet from Optrel.
almost great 4 Not very good for a lot of tacking or quick intermittent welds, because it flickers quite a bit. Even with fresh batteries and that's not good on 300 amp stainless mig. The auto shade is accurate and smooth. I still believe it needs another sensor or two because you will get flashed in tight spots. The clarity is excellent.
Great! 5 Best view of the weld puddle detail AND the full seam from all the helmets I've tried... I like the auto shade feature best and set it at +1 so it's just a little darker than factory programmed at neutral... It's actually great at neutral too; you see your puddle perfectly AND are able to see WAY ahead on your seam... I set it at +1 because I feel that I only need to see 1 or 2 inches ahead to track my seam...
Nice helmet e684 5 I been using the helmet for a week now and I love it! It's way better than Miller helmets. The headgear is comfortable to wear: very light feel to the head. The outside control is a very nice feature about this helmet, it's easy to switch functions (the auto mode works perfectly). I do mostly fluxcore and stick and i just put it on neutral or +1 and it does all the work. The color quality is very crisp and clear. I would say second rank to my Speedglas. The only thing i want to have on this helmet is another sensor as i get flash at start sometimes when I'm inside pipe welding. Other than that, it's a very nice helmet. You wont regret it if you get this one. +++++++
customer support is top notch 5 I left an earlier review & discussed an issue I had. I emailed Optrel about it & they immediately began the process of helping me. The technicians even called me from Switzerland. I received my new filter today and I will try it tomorrow then try to get back around w/ an update. Optrel is an awesome company with awesome products and some of the best, if not the best, customer support in the industry!!!
terrible 1 the batteries died after 30 hours of use ,the grind mode button gets stuck which requires you to remove the shield and fiddle with the knob. The clarity is great but the batteries should last a lot longer and the grind mode button is useless.
Bigger lens short of a great helmet 5 I really like the Adaptive Shade Control and Twilight feature but am disappointed with the size of the viewing area. I didn't look at that spec before I bought it because I assumed everyone has a larger lens by now especially in a premium hood. Certainly not as good as our Speedglas 9100XXi.
Excellent 5 Workes perfect
fast service 5 fast service
OptrelE684 5 Great company with super fast shipping. Helmet is good quality with superior optics. Adjustability is easy and convienient. Great product and great company.
THE helmet 5 THE BEST,Swiss made,would buy again,nothing better,but there are other great helmets out there.This is the best for its intended uses
best helmet for the money 5 i have used this brand for 15 yrs. and i wont go back to any other brand. this takes the place of multiple face protection scenarios. i never have had any trouble with the optrel helmets, and welding supplies from ioc are fast and accurate.
First Time With Optrel 4 Overall this is a great hood. I live in Utah and I own my own field service welding business. I have had all kinds of hoods over the years and I have used auto lenses for the last 8 years. My go to hood for years was the Miller Elite Digital. I have to wear a hard hat and my only complaint with Miller is that there hard hat adapter is not very durable. Since the introduction of 1/1/1/1 optics I have tried a Lincoln hood that didn't last very long. The optics were awesome though. I have tried a Jackson that I really like but the triple A batteries don't last long. The Optrel fit and ergonomics are top notch. This is the best hard hat adapter that I have ever used. The smaller lense is not even noticeable. The battery life for a 1/1/1/1 optics is very good. The cover plates are easy to change. My only two complaints are that the 1/1/1/1 optics are not as good as the Lincoln and Jackson hoods and the outside controls can be kind of annoying when laying on your side or getting into tight areas. It really sucks when you are welding and you bump the grind button against the ground or some metal. Rather than that this is overall a great hood. I am still waiting for Miller to release a 1/1/1/1 class lense and I have not tried any 3M hoods.
Great helmet I can finally 5 Great helmet I can finally see the puddle.
Optrel e864 5 Love this welding lens very clear
Optrel E684 4 Overall this is a nice welding hood. I do not think this helmet should be in the $300 and above price point. Here is what I've found with this hood. Good: -View through lens is very crisp. -True to the advertisements and talk on the web, very clear contrast in colors while welding. Easy to follow the puddle and see where you're going. -Auto adjustment is a nice feature. -Simple controls. -Nice external controls, easy to use with gloves on. Not so good: -Hood is kind of bulky (seems like it is like this so that user can wear a respirator under hood?). While it's down the inside lens seems close to the face but still protrudes out quite a bit. -Viewing area is on the smaller side of other hoods out there. Should, and easily could, be in the 10 + square inch realm -Head gear is low end in my book (especially for a $300 + hood), I believe this is the biggest con with this hood. Like I said, overall a good welding hood. I think it is over priced for what you actually get. I do like my Miller a little better, Maybe that will change the more I use it.
Great helmet 5 Excellent
Great price, very happy with 5 Great price, very happy with product!

They people there were so 5 They people there were so knowledgeable about the hood and gave me a option to actually talk to a optrel representative about their products and help me decide what was best for me. Helped me with promos and my points for the best price. And fast shipping great people to work with.
Great cost and fast delivery 5 Great cost and fast delivery great product very lite to wear highly recommended it middle price range
