Ortofon Pro S, Concord DJ S and Night Club E side by side.
In this video i take a look at 3 cartridges from Ortofon. All have good sound quality and if used in the corect manner will last a long time and not damage your vinyl.

If you imagine two people, with the same weight and same shoe size, walking in the snow; but one is wearing normal trainers while the other is wearing snow shoes; their effect on the snow will be completely different. The guy in normal shoes will sink in the snow, due to his body weight being distributed over a small area; whereas the man in snow shoes, because his weight is distributed over a wider surface area, will have little effect on the surface. Now if you imagine the guy in trainers as a spherical stylus, the guy in snow shoes as an elliptical stylus, and the snow as a vinyl record, you simply translate this reality to music reproduction.

Because a spherical stylus has limited contact points, its record wear is localised so though your vinyl groove may last longer, there will be worse localised wear, more immeditaely. However, because of this extra weight on a smaller surface area, the spherical cuts suit scratching, for it will skip less
Alternatively, if you use an elliptical stylus cut, it will actually inflict less immediate damage than a spherical stylus. This is because its contact surface area is spread more evenly. So in the long run, through general use, it will damage more of the record because of its larger contact area; but this process will take longer. The theory of elliptical being unsuitable for scratching because of its more detailed cut is wholly because its larger contact area (ironically) makes it more prone to skipping (unlike the spherical), not because it cuts the groove and ruins the record.
