The M44-7'S balance of high output - low record wear and stunning high levels of skip resistance make it a no-brainer for most pro DJ's.

Combining the Shure unique wide-diameter Type S cantilever with a tracking force of 1.5 to 3.0 grams, the M44-7's rugged construction is highly durable, but will not unduly wear your vinyl. With a 9.5 mV output, the highest on the market, the M44-7 produces very powerful, resonant sound.
