Discover the 2M Series

In this video, Leif Johannsen takes you on a journey through the highly acclaimed Ortofon 2M series. Joining Ortofon in 2007, Leif Johannsen collaborated with then-Chief Engineer Per Windfeld on the development of the 2M Series. Together, their efforts led to the completion of the 2M Series, which now includes the 2M Red, 2M Blue, 2M Bronze, and 2M Black, and has since become an icon for Ortofon.

Universal fit


The 2M Series is designed for easy cartridge mounting, weight, and size to fit the most common turntables today. 

The 2M Series are available in four different product variant configurations: the 2M for most common turntables on the market; the 2M Premounted, for customers who wish direct and easy mounting and replacement on their S-shaped tonearm; the 2M Verso, for bottom mount headshells; and the 2MR, which is designed cartridge housing tailored for turntables and tonearms like Rega, matching their requirement for low-form factor cartridges.

Exploring Ortofon's
2M Lineup

... The 2M line has become a de facto reference for moving-magnet cartridges ...
... the 2M Bronze is the more satisfying over the long haul, halving the difference between the Black's speed and resolution and the Blue's balance. In fact ... it is a mixture of all of these sonic virtues. It's fast, but not ostentatiously so; it turns information into music, and it does this because it is better balanced, neither leaning in one sonic direction or another. I would say that it represents not just the 2M line's sweet spot but also its musical core.
