    Even if you are planning on spending £100+ get them anways and save yourself some money. Do the job as well, if not better as any other needles imo.

    Also looking at getting some new needles, but for serato. Want to get something with minimum weight and maximum tracking. Guess im looking at white labels or is there anything else out there?

    ^^^^ If you're just using Serato, get Shure M44-7s. If you're using Serato and real records, get Shure M35Xs.

    In your price range look at the stanton diablos, I got some some a while ago about £60 the pair or £90 with an extra pair of stylus. I've been happy with mine :D

    Only M44-7's for me... everything else seems 2nd best, even when it shouldn't.
