      Great needles. The price is a bit high, but they withstand a lot of use and abuse. I've used other needles that have lasted a couple of weeks. I usually use the 44-7 for years. This new pair is for replacement of ones that were lost, not damaged.

                Makes me wonder why I bought different needles all these years.

                I work in a very unfriendly environment for DJs and these hold to the groove like no other needle before. Coming from Q-Bert Concord - those are also tremendous quality but just can't handle heavy vibrations like the 447s.

                        My old cartridge, when installed, sat at a perfect 90 degree angle to the record. This cartridge sets at more of a 70 degree angle, which I was told is good for DJ's who scratch a lot. Don't know about that but it sounds great!

                              Before I purchased these I was using Ortofon Elektro cartridges. It was time for new needles I've had the ortofon's for over 2 years and they are starting to wear. I decided to try these out and man was I Impressed I've heard so much positive feedback from others I had to try em myself. The sound quality on the M447's are so pure I just wish I had started with these in the first place. They are made for turntablists. I use them with serato scratch live and I'm highly impressed with how well they perform. The fact that they come pre mounted is so convenient for dj's on the run. Get these!! you will not be let down

                                  I have been using these needles for over a year now. Prior to trying these I was using trackmasters.. TrackMasters are good but Shure M447 are better and more Powerful and reliable. Plug and play was a plus also.

                                  I've used shure for over 5 years now and would never consider useing another needle. Purchasing the M447 H was so convenient, just plug in and play.

                                      They don't need the extra wieghts. They do not ship with a case. Look into this case on pssl.com

                                      Not needed, but each comes with an additional weight and different sized mounting screws just in case. They do not come in a case

                                      It all depends on what you would be using these cartridges with. These are an industry standard.

                                      Yes, the cartridge will work, although the headshell will not. This headshell is designed to work stricty with Technic Turntables. Although the cartridge is removable and you can mount it on the Pioneer headshell that your turntable has.
