Introduction

I received this headset at a garage sale. At 10$ the price was right. From comparing picture on the internet this seems to be a H10-36 set. That is the best identification I could find. The headset has seen better days and was well used. Both the left and right dome were loose, the left dome was cracked, and there was a suspicious rattle in the left dome. One of the pins to hold the dome to the stirrup had broken out of the dome. The boom microphone as well as the mic mount on the dome, were missing. The crossover cable had been previously repaired and was just hanging between the left and right dome.

Clearly visible damage on the left dome. Broken dome, missing retainer pin and clip as well as completely missing mic and mount as well as volume control button. Close up of the damaged dome. This is the mounting hole for the boom mic

Since this dome does not have any of the retainer pins or clips, it simply slides out of the fork This view shows the well worn filters (foam) This is the connector for the boom mic.

one more filter removed shows the screws for the speaker. Remove the next filter. Notice the different shapes of the filters. After the filter removal, inside damage of the dome becomes visible. In this case the standoff for the speaker screw was broken off.

Remove the mounting screw for the filter. Lift the speaker out of the dome. The wires are still attached, so do not try to pull to hard. Flip the speaker over to reveal the wire connection and the last filter. Originally this headset will only have three different foam filters

First to remove the mic cable. All connections in this headset are soldered. If possible, slide the heat shrink off the soldered connections to separate them with a soldering iron these are the cord clips holding which  prevent the cables from being pulled out of the dome. The connections where the heat shrink tubing can not be removed, are cut with a pair of pliers.
