VN5xMR Economical Substitute Hyperelliptial Stylus for Shure V15xMR Cartridge etc.

Made in Japan | Finished in USA

6 month factory defect warranty.

HyperElliptical "VN5xHE" diamond needle provides a moderate downgrade for the Shure VN5xMR that was a microridge tip originally supplied in the Shure V15 type V15xMR cartridge. You can be confident, as we are, that this will do your prized Shure V15VxMR cartridge justice at a great cost savings over a microridge stylus while still providing a high end playback solution capable of exceptionally faithful, clear and true sound reproduction.

Primarily intended for Shure V15 cartridges & needles that have an x in the part number. 

Each "VN5xHE" we receive in bulk packaging is carefully re-inspected under 200x magnification and securely individually packed in t-tn's tough snap boxes under the direct SUPERvision and training of our senior technician.

Replaces or is found in:
SHURE NEEDLE VN5xMR (as an economical hyperelliptical substitute.)
SHURE M111HE as a direct aftermarket replacement N111HE
SHURE CARTRIDGES V15VxMR will also fit the M97xE and Me97HE encore
Original needle color is: MAROON guard/BLACK body
top secret crosses: Can also fit the V15-Pro-S, VST-III, and the RADIO SHACK, REALISTIC V15-RS
See the M78S needle below to play 78RPM

This stylus is designed for the V15VxMR and can also be an upgrade for the M97xE cartridge. Note however that the M97xE internals are not quite the same (electrically) as the V15VxMR body so this will not upgrade the M97xE to the exact same level as the V15VxMR cartridge mounted with the VN5xMR stylus was. It will, however be a very significant improvement.

Improved Performance on M97xE
I purchased the 77x3-DHE as a replacement for the stock Shure stylus on the M97xE. It upgraded the performance of the cartridge significantly and essentially eliminated inner groove distortion. Turntableneedles.com handled the order quickly and professionally and promptly answered all my questions.

JICO HyperElliptical Stylus for V15VxMR Cartridge Part: 77x3-DHE
I installed this stylus in an acquired Shure VST-III P cartridge. I'm pleased with the overall sound and it's ability to extract detail from a record. It makes me happy I bought the cartridge it resides in, and it shows me why the cartridge deserves it's reputation.

Sounds amazing on my modified SC35C.
I'm using this stylus on a Paradox bodied Shure SC35C with great results. The SC35C has the same shank size & similar electrical characteristics as the V15VxMR. This stylus gives a full bodied sound with generous detail in my set up. IGD is very low, and sibilants are handled nicely. This is a very nice stylus for the price.

This is the real deal. Brought new life to my old beloved V15 RS (V15 type V), one of the best, most underrated cartridges of all time. Sounds great at much less than directly from JICO. Using on a Linn BasiK Plus. What a match!

Perfect upgrade for my Turntable! Great company.
I needed a new SHURE Stylus for my Garrard Zero-100 turntable... and I panicked when I found out they are no longer made. Thank heavens I found Turntableneedles.com. I bought the JICO Brand HyperElliptical Stylus and now my turntable works just like new. Great service, fast shipping, very fair price, I bookmarked their page - I'm a new fan of this vendor!

JICO HyperElliptical Stylus for V15VxMR Cartridge
Best stylus I have ever used in a long experience with hifi. Better than previous stylus that cost more. Rediscovering my old vinyl collection as a result. I highly recommend this stylus.

a diamond!
The m97xe is already a very good cartridge, I've used 2 genuine stylus before But with this stylus its a marvell The stage is larger and deeper and all the frequencies are perfect There is a lot of precision Its seems to need no breakin Its sad to listen a CD after that,even with a topend player My next purchase will be the shibata or a SAS,if the price is lower!!

Used on V15 RS
I have a Shure M95ED, M91E, a Grado Black, Grado Blue and an Audio-Technica AT95E. All have basic elliptical styli. I decided to dig out my old Shure V15 RS (Radio Shack version of a V15 VxMR. I hadn't been able to find a replascement stylus until I read where it is the same inside as the V15 VxMR. I purchased the 77x-DHE stylus and crossed my fingers. All my other cartridges with plain elliptical styli had some measure of sibilance that was annoying. My Shure V15 RS now sounds fantastic! Not a hint of sibilance! Best money I have spent in a long time!

New styli sounds exactly like the original. This is my third purchase from this company and overall I'm very pleased with my dealings with them. Will continue to do business with them. Many thanks.

replaces Shure m97Xe stylus
Purchased as replacement for Shure m97Xe stylus. Perfect fit. Brush works very well and is damped. Slight improvement over original m97Xe stylus. Treble more extended and smoother. Dimensions and weight slightly different than original stylus assembly, meaning it is necessary to reset tracking force and alignment.
