Despite being a mind-enhancing helmet, it will affect spell success rates adversely.
It does not auto-identify when worn. That said, its effect is extremely obvious after a short while (unless the player has stacked many turns of detect monsters or has another source of extrinsic telepathy), and can be identified even faster by checking the next non-mindless monster you see with far look while not blind to see whether you can detect it via telepathy.
While extrinsic telepathy is not essential for the ascension kit, it is still a useful intrinsic, and is thus quite popular. However, it can be rare, and helms of telepathy are not worth a wish to obtain.
