A very unusual aircrew headset comprised of an AAF HB-7 headband, low impedance ANB-H-1 receivers by Best Mfg. Co. fitted with a pair of MX-41/AR rubber cushions. The headset is wired with an early fully rounded RAF pink flecked light tan coloured loom, RAF black cased bell jackplug and a T-17B 'lollipop' microphone by Shure, the latter fitted with a side-mounted SW-109 switch. The leather on the headband shows wear but otherwise in very good used condition. It is assumed that this rare set-up would have been used by flying boat crews. Stock code H24585.
