Wehrmacht Chest Microphone
 
These microphones were used when both hands were needed to perform other tasks. It was usually worn around the neck and had receptacles where headphones could be plugged in. Since the microphone used three-pin connectors, and headphones used two-pin connectors, this unit had a five-pin connector. This connector was attached to a special cable which connected to a junction box.
