Can anyone help identify this headset?

Anyone familiar with broadcast headsets? I am wondering what headsets are used by the commentators here in this video:

Sennheiaser HMD 25

The version with the dynamic mic. (the HME 25 - electret mic. - has a smaller mic. capsule).

These are very popular for sports commentary.

Do you know where to buy one? I looked up HMD 25 and couldn't find anything? Is it discontinued?

Looks like it's been replaced by the HMD 26 or HMD 27 - see HERE

The new headsets are more modular with lots of cable options.

Interesting. Why are so many productions using the old headset still? Doesn't make sense.

Because they are excellent, well built and last - so there is no need to replace.

Plus all the spares are readily available.

My HD 25 are 30 years old and still going strong.
