The Miller Classic series welding helmet is a great economical option. This is an auto darkening weld helmet, meaning it will go dark when you strike an arc.

The Miller Performance Series is a great upgrade from the starter helmets in the Miller Electric lineup. This helmet has a significantly larger viewing area and more arc sensors than the Miller Classic Series while only weighing an ounce more. Plus, the pairing of Clearlight 2.0 technology and digital auto darkening filter controls make this helmet very user-friendly. The Gen 3.5 headgear is a big upgrade from the Gen 1, more adjustable, flexible, and comfortable. Its headgear and lightweight design make it a helmet that's easy to weld with all day.

Digital Elite

Digital Elite Welding Helmet


The Miller Digital Elite welding helmet is the best helmet for the all-day welder. With the large viewing area and ClearLight 2.0 technology, this helmet will help to reduce eye strain. On top of this, the Gen 3.5 headgear and lightweight 18-ounce design make it easy to wear all day long. The Digital Infinity and Miller T94 are fantastic helmets, but the weight on the Digital Elite makes it easier to wear all day.

Digital Infinity (Clearlight 2.0)

Digital Infinity


The Miller Infinity helmet is towards the higher end of Miller Electric's welding helmet offerings. This helmet has features like Infotrack 2.0, AutoSense, and a memory function. The extra features and huge viewing area on the helmet make it a breeze to use. Half shade settings allow you to tune it perfectly and save your settings with the memory function. This helmet comes in at 21.07 ounces, so that larger view does add weight. If you're welding for a few hours a day or you're a weekend welder, this is a great, premium helmet to get your hands on. The view is unreal!

  • Lens Shade: Variable 3-13

  • Weight: 21.07


 Miller T94iXL


The T94i XL is Miller's most premium and feature packed helmet. This helmet is unique due to the flip up integrated 44 square inch grind shield. It also has shade 5 side windows to give you peripheral view while welding. This helmet has the technology and set up for an industrial setting. The Gen 4 headgear is designed to disperse the weight of the T94 evenly, so there is all day comfort. The silver color of the helmet also helps to reflect heat and keep the user cool on the inside. Plus, it's packed with all of the features on the above helmets: ClearLight, digital display, and settings to make your welding life easier.

There are other versions of the T94 Miller helmets. They are the original T94 (288758) and the T94i (288759). The major difference between the T94 and the T94i is the flip-up ADF and grind shield on the T94i. This XL is new and is an extra large view!

  • Lens Shade: Variable 3-14
  • Headgear: Gen 4

Hopefully, this blog helped to clear up any confusion between all Miller Electric helmets. As you can see, there are many options and styles available. It really comes down to personal preference and the features you need for your job. Most Miller helmets come with a three-year True Blue warranty, so your investment is covered. The team here at Baker's Gas tends to lean more toward the Digital Elite - our favorite for the value and technology combination. It's everything you need in a helmet!
