Judging by the stiffness of the boom and the way they’re positioned slightly away from the face, I reckon they’re Sennheiser HSP2s. You can see at exactly 2.07 and again at 3.32 in the video how they move in relation to the face - the sennies tend to do this. The foam windshields look like Sennheiser’s too.

Definitely a Beta 58.

They sound good but they are a pain to position correctly. The headband is a poor design in my opinion, especially on smaller heads, also the boom is very stiff and doesn’t like to be bent too much. As I said above they tend to move about on the performer too - standard hairclips (kirby grips /bobby pins) can help with this but there’s a bit of faffing about in general.
I much prefer the DPA 4266 which is available in a choice of boom lengths and is way easier to position, and stays put. They sound better to me than the senny too.
