The aim of this paper is to introduce a class of operators acting on a complex Hilbert space. This class will contain, among others, non zero compact operators. We will give a characterization of this class in term of generalized numerical ranges. We will deduce that if $A$ is a compact operator, then $ w(A)=\vert \lambda \vert $ with $ \lambda \in \wa $, where $ \wa $ and $ w(A) $ are the numerical range and the numerical radius of $ A $, respectively. We will give some new necessary conditions for an operator to be compact. We will also show some light on the generalized numerical ranges of the elementary operators $\dd$ and $\m$.
