I love this stylus. It sounds amazing and with the J44A7 carts I use, the tracking is like a train on a track. The sound to me of the NUDE stylus is better than the sound of the original Shure. The bass is nice and rich and the mids and highs sound great. I love the JICO Shure clone cart, the J44A7. These replacement stylii are worth every penny in my opinion and I am going to be buying more for hopefully years to come. I would give it 10 stars if I could.
