The Hondaline headset uses the old J&M 5 pin clamp and 90% of the these cord failures are the mic pin breaking at the upper end of the "D" cord and the pin stays in the clamp. When the pin cannot be easily removed I just push it into the clamp by lining up a new "E" cord and just push it into the clamp.
Since I have seen 100's of the pin failures of the mic pin, when looking at the headset upper cord pins it is the 1st pin to left, I have always thought it was a failure of the placement of that pin in the clamp being out of alignment .
Funny that this thread was started as a local couple just dropped off 2 helmets at my home here in Fl. and both are have the Hondaline headsets and the passengers headset has all 5 pins broken off in the clamp.
