True To the Groove

The 2M Black is the flagship of the series and it lives up to this with flying colors. You can hear every little detail in the music from every part of the spectrum. Just the way the artist wanted you to. The 2M Black is mounted on Ortofon's classic SH-4 headshell. The sturdy, slim-designed SH-4 headshell offers strength and delicacy, complemented by an ergonomic, easy-to-lift finger grip. Simplify your setup while embracing quality.

Accuracy level

With the 2M Black, you will not only hear the music, but you will sense the presence of the artist in the room while listening to your favorite records.


The 2M Black is graced with a Shibata diamond that gives it contact with the groove like nothing else. The slim, highly polished profile allows an exceedingly wide contact area to the groove walls and ensures notably detailed reproduction throughout the spectrum, including even the most high frequency groove information.

Split Pole Pin Technology

The 2M Black features a high-performance motor system incorporating quad coils with Ortofon’s very own invention: split pole pins upgraded with a silver-plated copper wire.

SH-4 Headshell

The 2M is mounted on a classic Ortofon SH-4 headsheel and is for customers who wish direct and easy mounting and replacement on their S-shaped tonearm.
