Shure M44-7

Great product, and fast service

Exactly what it is advertised to be.

Excellent cartridge with high output and smooth sounding frequency response. I'm using this in a Technics SL-D5 turntable in a hi fi system. It tracks really well and sounds good. I've seen where there's an emphasis in the bas response, but the response sounds pretty flat and true to the record to me.

Best bang for your dollar!

This is an all-around great cartridge. Not only is it good for scratching, but cueing, and overall sound quality puts these at the tip top of my list of favorite DJ cartridges. With the proper care, these will last you a very long time, and replacement needles are reasonably priced. I could say more, but that is all you really need to know. Will probably not buy any other in the future.

Shure M44-7 rocks

once i put these bad boys on and hit start,i could tell the difference right away.using DVS i know that needles really don't make that much of a difference when compared to reg vinyl,but the sound is great and the tracking even skipping or jumping around when scratching.and clear signals in my Traktor Pro 2 thing is once you get the cartridges,the replacement styli knocks the price in half!!

The overall performance is so much more than expected. Hearing is believing.

Sweetwater Advice

Mike Harris

The Shure M44-7 has been my first-choice turntable cartridge for 15 years. These things stay in the groove like nothing else. If you're a battle DJ and you aren't using these, you're missing out!

Austin Moss

The industry standard from mixing to scratching. Cheap needles for your wheels of steel are like hubcaps for your Hummer! Get these needles!
