A replacement stylus for the Ortofon OM 5E cartridge.

This quality stylus is standard fit for, amongst other turntables, the Pro-Ject Essential.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from An excellent needle for my project turntable. Arrived quickly. A very good needle at a decent price.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product. Very quick delivery. Good price I hadn’t changed my stylus for A WHILE. So the difference in sound after I replaced it was dramatic. Easy purchase via richer sounds and quick delivery.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thoroughly recommend I bought this as a replacement for my pro-ject turntable. I’m embarrassed to say it’s the first time I’ve replaced it since I bought the turntable about 15 years ago but I think it probably lasted a good 10 years before any noticeable reduction in quality. Of course it does depend on usage, and this presumably just fits the specific ortofon cart but changing was easy, came very safely packaged and was cheaper from RS than any other dealer

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Starter Stylus, sounds good I broke my stylus during set up of turntable, got this as the like for like replacement, delivery was quick - the sound is good - but this is an entry level piece.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Swift delivery, great product! I ordered a replacement stylus (Ortofon 5E) from Richer Sounds recently, and am very pleased with both the timely delivery and the product itself. Reasonably priced and perfectly acceptable for any compatible player, it should prove more than satisfactory to most sets of ears.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice simple switchover, sounds great. I’m hopeless at replacing my stylus regularly enough and I’d never done it on my current turntable. You never know how fiddly it’s going to be and that’s partly what put me off. This couldn’t be simpler though. Literally just pull-off push-on. I’ll probably do it a bit more regularly now :-)
Date published: 2020-04-27
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound again. I had put off replacing the stylus for too long, but finding that it was available from Richer Sounds, I enquired about its suitability for my OMP 5E cartridge and got a positive response. Ordering over the phone was easy and a delight to talk with someone enthusiastic.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best price Had to replace my old 5E after the stylus snapped. Wary of it happening again, I didn’t want to break the bank; this is a direct replacement for my Pro-Ject Elemental and Richer Sounds has the best price (and best customer service of course!).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great service Cheaper than on line retailers, orderd on phone picked up in store.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good sound I bought the stylus two weeks ago as a replacement for my Pro-Ject Essential II turntable. The sound with the stylus and cartridge is very good and the quality of them are in line with the quality of the turntable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from As expected - good quality Bought to replace original 5E and was spot on - simple push fit - sounds good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Peasy! To be honest, I'd been putting off buying a new stylus as I thought it would be a nightmare to fit, but in the end my vinyl demanded it! When it arrived, I left it a week and the today took a deep breath and ... ...it took 2 seconds to fit! Probably took longer to get out of the box to be honest. On behalf of my vinyl I thank you :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works perfectly I bought this having bought a stylus online which didn't work. Staff at Richer sounds store were extremely helpful in getting the right stylus and opening the store to help me when they were closed for staff training.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to install, sounds great I damaged my old stylus when packing our turntable away when moving house. The one was delivered fast, no complaints

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value and fast delivery I really wasn't sure whether to go for this as a replacement for my original 5E or the 10 as an upgrade. Having had the chance to hear both I'm still satisfied that this performs well for the price. Very happy with this and my previous stylus (the original that came with the Project 2 Essential turntable) was clearly past it!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good replacement for 3E stylus. My existing Ortofon 3E Stylus had been damaged and I wasn't sure if it could be replaced. According to Richer Sounds' website the 5E was compatible.It is and my vinyl albums sound great.
