It's probably either a shock mount or a pop filter. Without seeing exactly what you are asking about it's hard to say.

A pop filter is an independent piece that goes in front of the mic. This is to help keep spit off of the mic, and to lessen the sound of s's and p's.

A shock mount is usually a round piece that the mic sits in. Usually the shock mount is connected to the mic stand, and then the mic is placed in it keeping it somewhat suspended in air.

What Is A Pop Filter?

A: A pop filter is a filter that is placed in front of a microphone in a recording studio that keeps extra air from hitting the microphone when a vocalist sings. When singers use words that have the letter "p" or "k", "s", "f", or "b", they tend to use their diaphragm more and this forces air out of their mouth without them realizing it. That sound will hit the microphone and cause the recording to sound really windy (the same thing that happens when the wind hits a microphone) and that can be really bad for a professional recording.
