This face piece, along with the goggles (see image below) are clearly not part of Iron Man's helmet but they can give you super powers like targeted audio and enhanced vision.
This concept has the potential for a real Iron Man like helmet that perhaps could be used to enhance a soldiers abilities in the field. Which is what the Iron Man suit was really intended to do.

Description by the video creators...
We are used to controlling the world around us, to find the settings that suit us best. What if we had the same control over our senses? If we could adjust them in real time, what new experiences could this make possible?You can find out more information about this technology including diagrams and photos at De Zeen Magazine.
Eidos delivers two pieces of experimental equipment that let you selectively enhance your hearing and vision by activating your hidden powers of perception.
