  1. This post has been locked, as the question has been solved and a majority of new comments at this point are unhelpful and/or jokes.

    Thanks to all who attempted to find an answer.

  2. It’s a assisted hearing device for the hearing impaired. How do I know you ask??? I used to work in the California court system and have seen similar devices first hand. Some counties used these types and other use the plain headphone type that looked like they were manufactured in the 1990s.

  3. WITT i was watching the Mark Riebe episode of ‘serial killer with piers morgan’ and while they were showing him in court getting his verdict I notice this headset on him. What is its purpose?

  4. Maybe it’s a direct audio feed to the judge just in case he’s hard of hearing, or perhaps he’s overly sensitive to background noise. Or both. Was there a full-ish courtroom that you could see? Maybe his crimes were so heinous that the whole courtroom was likely to be in contempt if they knew he could hear them?

    That’s my best guess(es).

  5. Please remember that all comments must be civil and helpful toward finding an answer.

    **Jokes and unhelpful answers will earn you a ban**, even on the first instance. If you see any comments that violate this rule, please report them.

    OP, when your item is identified, remember to reply **Solved!** or **Likely Solved!** to the comment that gave the answer.
