A excellent cartridge!
I made detailed measurements of AT96E, as a part of the AT LP120 USB turntable, by use of the internal preamp and with 2 g tracking force. The main results are as follows:

Frequency response: 40 - 16000 Hz ± 1.5 dB
(the measuring LP did not have lower of higher frequencies recorded)
THD: 0.6% at 1 kHz
Channel crosstalk: 29 dB at 1 kHz, 20 dB at 8 kHz

These are excellent values for this price category!

If using AT96E with LP120 USB - check the actual tracking force on the stylus! I found that my counterbalance scale is systematically wrong by 20%: the actual force is 1.2 x the scale value!

Excellent value for money
I ordered this cartirdge for a Pioneer PL400 that I just repaired. It had a sony shell already, so I ordered this cartridge based on reviews. I am happy to say it has never sounded so good. I really enjoyed listening to some of my earlier vinyl, and it performed extremely well.

great budget cartridge!
An excellent all around phono cartridge that delivers on value! Clear, resolved definition, particularly in the highs, along with crisp and punchy bass. Jazz dynamics are superb, and blues play with soul and presence. This little cartridge is hard to beat, I doubt there is any competition at this price point.

I have it set at ~2.1g VTF on a Technics SL-D2 and am very pleased with tracking results and sonic performance.

Highly recommended!

This AT95e cartridge has amazed me from the second the needle entered the first track on my record collection dating back to the 1940's! The sonic clarity of vocals, the super richness of the mid range, especially in orchestrations and great resounding bass was unbelievable. For the first time, I am hearing instrumentation I did not know was imbedded in those recordings! Tinkling bells, guitar chords, bass fiddles, violins, you name it....they are there ! And, the vocals are so clear it sounds like the person as well as the orchestra are live in my room. Audio Technica 95e is amazing...and for the price is hard to beat! I am still reeling from the audio dynamics capable by this excellent cartridge! PS. The tracking is superb with excellent inner groove music as well as virtually no distortion. What a bargain!!

The class at a budget price
This catridge is real a good choice.
Sound good with a superb tracking even in the inner grooves
No matter what kind of music you play, the sound result clear and with good dynamics.
Just have the patiece to wait around 20/30 hour and the sound come out even better.
As I said, it's a really good choice.

Give it a helping hand, then sit back and be amazed!
The AT95E has a well-deserved reputation that need not be repeated here. But, as is my custom, I listened to a few of my favorite "test tracks" (actual music, not signals), and the added the finishing touch - a line-contact stylus. For example, I used the Karl Bohm/Vienna Philharmonic recording of the Beethoven 7th, second movement. With the stock AT95E, it sounded as good as ever. But on re-listening with the line-contact stylus, I was flatly amazed. I heard things in the orchestration that came through radiantly that I had never heard before. Beautiful! I recommend LP Gear for the correct line-contact stylus for this cartridge. It costs a few bucks, but is the perfect - I'd go so far as to say "essential" - finishing touch. You won't regret it!

This cartridge sounds absolutely great!
I own a Dual 704 and i wanted a better catridge since it had a Shure m70 that sounded just thin on this machine (it sounds good on my old pioneer PL 112D though). So i was in the market for a new cartridge. I read some really possitive things about this one so i bought it . Man was i suprised! The sound is just so vivid now! Enough bass, and an overal clarity that is much better as my old cart. I'm absolutely in love with this cartridge! I alway knew my Dual was capable of a much better sound but i thought i would have to get really expensive cartridges. But that seems not nescessary. Great! Thank T.A.!!

The change was so good
I needed a new cartridge for my ATLP-120 Turntable so the first option was the atp-2 (which was the cartridge included in the TT), then I was told the ATLP-120 now comes with the AT95E, so after a couple of questions I decided to buy the AT95E, the design is still awful but the sound is crisp and brilliant, it manages the tracking error so good (much better than the ATP-2), I must say that the ATP-2 sounds louder, but louder doesn't mean better, great cartridge. (Thanks for answering my questions)

What a nice piece of kit !
Great upgrade from AT91 - from a user recently back to Vinyl, Audio Technica make great carts, I had a budget, looked and listened to ortofon equivalent, this for me was the better. By all accounts will get better once its done a few more hours. Would recommend definitely.

This cartridge is supplied with the At-LP120 turntable , the sound is OK when played with this turntable , but then i tried it on a Technics SL-220 and there was a HUUUGE improvement on the sound quality . Clear sound and great details with a very good separation
