Hey, can anyone recommend a really good stethoscope? Maybe in the $100 range? I'm starting Clinicals in Jan and wanted to get a jump on it. Thanks!:confused:... Read More

    I had a littman master classic II, but I wasnt real found of it. I got the Littman Cardiology III my sophomore year, and WOW is all I can say. You have to really know what you are hearing though, sometimes when you are listening to the heart, you might pick up bowel sounds Just remember, hearts murmur, they don't growl!

    I know its a bit expensive, but look at it as a long term investment. Pop the extra 11 bucks and get a littman ID tag. They are EXTREMELY hard to remove. I had to buy a new one because I couldnt get my first one off my Classic

    i like littman too! but DO NOT get the lightweight one. it sucks. couldn't hear crap. luckily, i laid it down somewhere and someone stole it. so it gave me an excuse to by the master classic II. can hear much better now!! i always keep it around my neck...

    I used to have the Littman Classic II SE (I think that's what it is called). It's the $100 ish stethescope, and it's good too.
    Life Uniforms has Littman Classic II SE on sale for $76 and change plus a $10 coupon good after Jan. 1.

    Based on the majority of recommendations by this forum and because I simply didn't have any other experience to go on I purchased the Littmann Classic II SE from Steeles.com for $57.95 which was by far one of the best prices around. I also got the ID tag for $5.40. After shipping the total was $69.85.

    I think the pricing for the other scopes is just as good.
