Timestep T-01HS Ebony Headshell
Made specially for Timestep UK, to their own specifications, the T-O1HS is a beautifully machined solid ebony headshell that happens to sound great too. Mass is 15g, so very good for lower compliance cartridges, or where you may need to bump up the arm’s overall effective mass. Headshell wires are solid silver. Azimuth is fully adjustable.
The pictures don’t really do this headshell justice – they really are very finely made and impeccably finished. You won’t get a better sounding headshell than the T-01HS unless you’re prepared to splash out on the Arche 5D, or a Glanz MH-4S, both of which cost over £400.

PROS: commanding bass, midrange control, low noise, smooth upper frequencies, build
Here’s some recent customer feedback:
Just to let you know… I finally manage to put everything together. I mount the Ortofon 2M Black on Timestep T-01HS Ebony Headshell on Technics SL-1200G turntable. I was shocked by the result!! Literally!! I never heard (till now) that vinyl sound beat the digital 24bit. I own Aurender N10 player, but from last Friday I’m listening LP after LP from my collection (also the old ones – from 20 years ago – sounds fantastic). Even friend on mine (from renowned hifi shop) who mount the headshell and cartidge said that he never heard the 2M Black played better (even on a 10 k TTs like Dr Feickert and VPI). Very happy with the purchase!! And thanks for the Miyayima headshell washer.
