    As reviewed by drips on 9/27/2006

    The Shure M44-7 is a standard for serious DJ's, especially turntablists and for good reason. When I first got them, I popped 'em in my turntables and was instantly hit with a loud punchy sound that none of my prior cartridges had. I've used 4 or 5 different carts, all of which were good quality DJ style, and this knocked them all out. I didn't understand exactly what 'ultrahigh output' would do for me until I tried these; they're just louder, and louder=better. Definitely would rebuy if needed.

  • Too much bass

    As reviewed by Roger on 3/27/2015

    This cartridge was included with the Pioneer turntable I recently purchased. I use my turntable for vinyl listening in my home, with a higher end stereo system. It sounded unnatural (to me) with far more bass than should have been there. I had to actually turn down the bass control on my amplifier to -3 to get a somewhat natural sound. Other than that, the quality and clarity were fine, and it seemed a little "louder" than other cartridges I have used in the past. And Shure is a solid company that has been around for many years.

  • Best Needles with the lowest price.

    As reviewed by David King on 6/5/2013

    The Shure M44-7s are and will always be the industry standard when it comes to hip hop and scratch DJs. With a replacement needle only costing around $25 on average you can't beat it. Although Ortofon has created what I believe is the best needle for Serato SL with the S-120, I believe they are overpriced and not worth the money. 2 M44s vs 2 S-120s will save you over $200 with an identical sound just by going with the M44. If you spin real vinyl then look no where else, this is the needle and cartridge for you. IAMDJDK
