"And your Plate helmet is...?"

"A steel headband."

I am 100% OK with this, as long as the player is fine with it being conductive, enemies mysteriously knowing that all that bare skin is actually armored, and that your pauldrons won't randomly fall if poked gently. And no bonus damage beyond the gauntlets and boots stuff. I'd usually suggest something like that be Ornate so they can intimidate/impress people with it, but it's not mandatory.
