Great for home, not a great output for gigs (Shure - WhiteLabel)

By Jocelyn Silver, 05/02/2016
I'm a new vinyl dj with only 1.5 years under my belt. After a disaster with some discount needles, I purchased a pair of these, encouraged by the reviews and price. For a long time I thought I was the smartest dj on the block, they sound great on mix recordings and on my home monitor and I was spending far less on the cart/stylus combo pack then most of my friends were on there needles. On top of sounding great at home and on mixes I liked the nice bright stylus making it easier to spot your exact drop point at dark gigs.

But speaking of gigs, I kept getting asked why I play so quiet. "I don't" I would say, I play to 7 but don't redline like everyone else does, I'm right and they're wrong" I'd say or thing. Until finally a good friend in the know approached me and told me it wasn't me but likely my needles output. Now I haven't looked up the supposed output of these but it made so much sense that I did finally end up replacing these. Again, sound fine at home and mixes sound great, but my output was to the same level as everyone else on the mixer but softer out of the speaker with these.
