Beige canvas hood with flaps to cover ears and the back of the neck. Sewn over the area are plastic black oval earpieces with "AM 10A/12401" in white on the exterior. The interior of the pieces have a padded rim around a black plastic piece with 2 holes in it. There are snaps and a leather strap to fasten the hood at the front. Extending from each earpiece is a beige chord which then meet along with a third broken chord approximately 300 mm from the helmet. That chord runs through a black plastic device with a dial that has high and low marked on it along with "AM 10A/13163" on it. In turn, the chord runs to a black bell-shaped attachment at the end.
