Biggest Bang for buck in that arena is a Shure M97XE runs about a $100.00 or less new. Others would be Grado Red. Ortofon 2m Red. All similiarly priced. All of these outperform the Shure N44C. Careful shopping can result in these at very nice prices. My overall favorite in this category would be the Sumiko Pearl and is in same price category.
