"NEW HEARING COMFORT in COMMUNICATIONS" (as of the mid 1950's, I suppose?) this headset is still in its original box. For "AIRCRAFT COMMUNICATIONS -- AMATEUR RADIO -- TRANSCRIPTION MACHINES" (according to the sides of the box) it is a model 4626 made by "TELEX ELECTRO-ACOUSTIC DIVISION" of "ST. PAUL 1, MINNESOTA".
It has a 1/4" monaural phone plug on the end of its wire, and a clip-on volume control near the small 2-prong plug which connects the cord to the headset itself in its middle where the 'sound producing' parts are, both the 'earpieces' are actually curved hollow tubes gently sprung together to fit in the ears. A small now empty plastic bag also in the box might have held extra ear-tips (?) and is labeled with a crest and "TELEX, INC. - TELEX PARK - ST. PAUL MINN.".
