Scott's Headphone Museum Gallery
These are more old headphones from the 1920's that
display from my collection. These are just
sample of the dozens of military headphones that were used, and
mostly early sets. The R-14 set is about 1940's vintage and had a
ohm DC resistance so it works well with crystal sets. The R-15
3000 ohms DC resistance and is also a good crystal set persormet.
is 2200 ohms and is very sensitive also. Most of the later sets
impedance and would need an impedance matching transformer to use
a crystal radio. The H-43 B/U was a 3000 ohm set that was made for
Geiger Counter and also works well with crystal radios.
These are for display only, not for sale. To see my
radio webpage take the link to:
Radios where I have a page of Headphones
Consolidated Radio R-14 Century Model SC
ANB H-1 Low impedance headsets that work fairly well on crystal
with impedance matching transformer, several makers.
Connecticut R-15 Signal Corps
These are only a few of the many military headphones I have come
other common ones are Telephonics TH-37, a variety of HS-16-A by
Murdock, Consolidated Radio, and others, not to mention the sound
headphones, aviation headsets, etc. Since my interest is mainly in
radio items I cannot list or picture many of these and do not have
knowledge of the later military equipment.
