The LP Gear Ultimate headshell is one of the finest half-inch mount headshells in the world. Exquisitely hand-assembled in Japan using selected parts and materials, each LP Gear HD headshell is designed to deliver high-definition audio. The LP Gear HD headshell with headshell wires included weighs 7.6 grams.
For tensile strength, lightness and structural integrity, the LP Gear HD headshell uses a special ultimate aluminum alloy. A similar metal alloy is used in the aerospace industry.
For pure connectivity, the LP Gear Ultimate headshell comes with heavily plated gold plugs and very high purity oxygen free copper Litz wires. Each twisted wire is exquisitely encased in clear insulation. Terminal tips are gold plated phosphor bronze.
Now here's a headshell for the High-Definition listener - the LP Gear Ultimate headshell.
Lightweight rigid headshell seems a good match to my vintage Shure. I am not equipped to give a scientific review but I replaced stock headshell on new mid end turntable with low end AT cartridge, for my vintage Shure V 15 V vmr ( also got nice replacement stylus here). Uses less tracking force than what I came with new turntable etc.) . So recalibrated tonearm and I an very pleased.
A higher quality headshell that's made better than the cheaper one's online. Doesn't feel cheap at all. I'm happy with my purchase, and it was worth paying more to me.
