Take a step up in sound quality, with the Ortofon 2M Blue.

A step up in sound

With an improved engine, featuring a higher output than the 2M Red, the 2M Blue gives a higher level of sonic accuracy.

Nude Elliptical diamond
Featuring a Nude Elliptical stylus, the 2M Blue creates a wider contact with the groove than the 2M Red model. It’s this increased contact that gives the 2M Blue a more dynamic sound with deeper bass and brighter treble. A wider contact also means less damage to your precious records.

Ideal for budget to mid-range decks
The Ortofon’s wide-ranging abilities make it the ideal choice for all turntables, right up to around £1000. Its balanced sound also means it’s ideal for listening to a wide range of music genres.

Make a move to hear more. Fit the Ortofon 2M Blue to dig out the music.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good upgrade from Shure M44-7 Prior to this I have only owned one other cartridge which is the Shure M44-7. The Shure has stronger but less detailed bass. Where the 2M Blue excells is in the clarity of the upper midrange and highs. The difference is quite notable. If you have bright sounding electronics or bright sounding speakers you might find this cartridge is not an ideal match. A significant upgrade over the M44, and at current prices cheaper too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sound is great. I didn’t realise how much my old stylus had gone till I replaced it with my a new Ortofon M Blue, I’m so glad I did now and the price was worth it after a few listens.
