Open type. Earphones are connected by chin straps.
Closed type. Earphones form a chin, could be supplemented by a folding chin (eng. Falling buffe), forming a kind of visor.
The helmet was usually supplemented with a crest at the top; there were three on the early bourguignots. On the back of the head, under the crest, a sleeve for the sultan was often installed.
