Mil-Surplus Heli Helmet Game Headset Probably Cooler Than Yours

Probably much heavier, too, to be fair. el8id modified this bargain-bin surplus helicopter helmet—which came ready-made with speakers and a mic—to communicate with a gaming console or a cell phone as a bluetooth headset. It also includes…

…a complete second circuit integrated to output to an RF-wireless headset that is also routed through the original system’s speakers. The combination allows for a unique helmet that allows me to both have the ambient video-game sounds as well as chat-communications integrated into a single helmet for gaming, but also allows me to use it as a regular bluetooth, radio, or wireless headset form the TV when the wife isn’t awake yet.
