Does this come w headshell?
dj al x on Feb 15, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No it doesn't, that needs to be purchased separately. The shure cartridge comes all the necessary mounting hardware for a headshell.
Greetings! Being that the mounting screws don't come with the M44-7s, do they come with the headshells ?
A shopper on Sep 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No, they are just replacement cartridges with stylus.
Mounting screws are provided but not the headshell.
You can get a standard headshell for pretty cheap, just make sure the colored wires are firmly attached to the correct posts, set the right tracking force, and you're solid!

Best DJ Cartridge I've Used

Best cartridge / stylus combo I have used for standard turntable DJing. This needle stays in the grooves and is hard to skip. For best performance, make sure to read the included installation instructions to set your tone arm height and counter weight properly.

A Standard Piece of Gear
Pros: Clear Sound,Easy To Use,Professional Functions,Powerful,Versatile

For Anyone That Doesn't Know, These Cartridges are a must have for any DJ. These are probably the best cartridges out there; if not, they're at least in the top two. It has excellent tracking, so it's hard to skip while scratching. The high output is also a plus. Not to mention the low record wear.

This needle surppassed my expectations!
Pros: Excellent Sound,Professional Features,Consistent

I own a pair of Whitelables as well and i was reluctant to buy these thinking they were over-rated. I am sure glad i got these because after one day of using them i am hooked. Never again will i stray from buying these needle. I hooked them up, and scratched as rough and fast as i could trying to see the tolerance, they didnt skip once and thats at all levels of anti skiping on the turntable. I highly recomend buying these if you are even concidering being a scratch d-jay. I am very seriouse about this, i do not know if there is a better needle out there yet but as of This day, I can tell you D-Jay, You need a set of these in your inventory.

Best DJ Cartridge!!
Pros: Easy To Use,Consistent,Versatile,Excellent Sound,Professional Features

This is by far the perfect DJ cartridge for anyone using Technics 1200's. It uses such a low amount of tracking force and grips the record better than any other cartridge i've used before. It is perfect for scratching and puts out excellent CD quality sound. Perfect for those using the scratch live program.
