Powered by built-in solar panel and one replaceable CR2032 batteries (included), the Instapark ADF GX-500S is equipped with dual arc sensors that activate the auto-darkening filter to switch from light to dark automatically in a 1/25000 second when an arc is struck. The auto-darkening filter greatly reduces the need to flip the welding helmet up and down between torch placements, which helps to boost productivity by reducing the stop-and-start time needed with passive lens welding helmets. This feature can also reduce the need for grinding and rework by increasing torch placement accuracy, thus saving time, effort and money. The ADF GX-500S also has a variable dark shade adjustable from #9 to #13 with a resting shade of #4, suitable for most Stick, MIG (Metal Inert Gas) and TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) applications.
Ergonomically designed and made of lightweight composite materials, the ADF GX-500S features a custom fit made possible by a ratcheting headband and padded interior. Its filter has a wide viewing area of 3.63” X 1.65” giving you a full view of your welding area and complete UV/IR protection.

It has dual setting ranges, 5-9 and 9-13, to control the darkness of the lens. It has a "grind" setting to use while grinding. It's also supplied with extra lens covers. The lens has a "Test" setting as well that allows the user to check the darkening function of the lens. Another feature is the adjustable delay for turning off the darkening feature after welding. For the price it's packed with useful features. My helmet was ready to work right out of the box aside from headband adjustments.
It responds instantly to an arc and I don't get any spots in my eyes when I'm done. The "grind" function works well, too, since you can clearly see everything you need to see. Setting it on about 9.5 or 10 works just about perfectly for MIG welding...for me anyway.
The colors on the outside of the helmet (I got the eagle design) are very brilliant and the decals are cleanly applied. It looks very nice.
It includes a nice, easy to understand instruction booklet, too.
My only complaint is with the headband suspension. It feels flimsy and needs to be tightened too tightly in order to move the helmet up and down without it sliding around on my head. So once it's secure enough I need to use both hands to raise/lower it...one hand to move the helmet, one hand to hold it in place. It also doesn't offer nearly as much cushion in the forehead area as some others I've used. It can be adjusted for angle of view (to the work piece) and for distance from the face. There's an annoying bulge molding into the plastic on the left side that hits me right in the temple area when the headband is tightened enough to keep it secure on my head.
The headband would be a deal killer for me if I needed to purchase another helmet. It's a severe weak point in an otherwise top-shelf welding helmet.
***UPDATED: 6/12/2017*** After my initial 3-Star review (due to the headband issue) I was contacted by the seller. They offered to replace the entire helmet. I asked that only the headband/suspension be replaced. I received a new one, with several additional padded sweatbands included, in the mail 2 days later. The new suspension is far superior to the original. It has a sturdier attaching system and has far more adjustment latitude than the original.
The new suspension, combined with superior customer service, makes this a 5-Star helmet in my mind. Highly recommended.
