This mic is essentially a budget version of what you might see in the West End!
The key thing about a headband mic like this is that it is virtually invisable to the audience, plus because the boom hugs the cheek, the mic can not move in relation to the mouth, which is a problem with lavalier ('tie-clip') mics during energetic dance routines.
The detachable cable, which can be replaced if necessary as a spare, is terminated in a 2.5mm connector. The mic is supplied with 3-pin (AKG) and 4-pin adaptors, but an optional 3.5mm (Sennheiser) adaptor plug is also availabel on request.
This is what Stageline say about the HSE150ASK:

This microphone is comfortable to wear, provides perfectly stable positioning and the high-quality back electret cartridge ensures a high-quality audio reproduction of vocals and presentations.
