DS Audio HS-001 Solid Steel Headshell

Designed for low resonance, great stability, and even pressure on the contacts.

Each HS-001 is precision machined out of a solid billet of duralumin for the ultimate in rigidity and resonance control. The Litz signal leads are hand-soldered with Japanese-made Litz wire. 

Conventional headshells have the connecting pin attached only to the upper side, causing uneven contact pressure between the arm and the headshell. However, the HS-001 Solid Head Shell adopts both an upper and lower pin structure, equalizing the pressure on the contacts and applying force evenly across the connection to the tonearm.

Moreover, a spherical DS Audio headshell washer used at the contact point with the tonearm, achieves stable contact over the entire circumference of the contact point, providing improved stability and resonance control.
