VNSE5MR stylus vs. VN5MR stylus

FAQ #4115 Updated May 24, 2012


What is the difference between a Shure VNSE5MR stylus and a Shure VN5MR?  Which one was produced first? Is there a difference in sound between the two?


VNSE5MR was designed to fit the VST V - a Special Edition cartridge.  

VN5MR was designed to fit the V15V-MR.  It was produced first.

The styli can be interchanged.

We find nothing in the engineering specs to indicate that one stylus was better than the other.
