Network news talent.  They've got some kind of IEM Looking ear pieces along with the mic.  They're black but very low profile.  I don't think I've ever seen anything like them before...

Without a picture I don't know for sure, but DPA sells a version of their HS mics with one or two IFB earpieces.

See if these are the ones.  I have several with custom molds for each ear and the mic is not so noise cancelling that it sounds bad.  Could be used on air.

Those units do look a lot like the headset seen on some network talent heads this week. From what little I've seen, anyway (I was flipping channels, and the headsets caught my eye, had to look).

I've seen the headsets that the news anchors are wearing and was wondering the same thing. This looks similar, but not quite it.
