A-11 Flight Helmet X-Large with covered ear pieces, first I've had with this feature (or I just don't recall seeing it)...The Extra Large label was sewn over the original tag.

I believe the covered ear phones and mask mic modification is a post war modification. I believe this was done to the standards of the A13 helmet (the green leather flight helmet).
Nice helmet

I just bought almost exactly the same one. It is a mid to late 50s modification for jet airplanes.
