    Does anybody know the difference between a litmann classic ii pediatric stethoscope and a 3m classic ii pediatric stethoscope? There is a $40 dollar difference between the two but i can't tell if that is simply because one is being offered from an amazon seller and the other is some random seller....

    Amazon.com: 3M Littmann Classic II Pediatric and Infant Stethoscopes: Health & Personal Care

    Amazon.com: Littmann Classic II Pediatric Chestpiece, Caribbean with Rainbow: Health & Personal Care

    I googled, with no luck

    What is the other brand you bought, just so I know! I also have a Littman, a classic II, but still awesome!

    I had a problem with the first stethoscope I bought for nursing school. I eventually discovered that all I had to do was change the ear pieces from the soft ones to the hard ones. It was less comfortable but I could hear!! :-) turns out the soft ones were closing up in my ear not allowing me to hear anything.

    I believe they're the same company as Littmann is owned by 3M. However if you're looking for a Littmann peruse the Littmann site for legit sellers as some places sell knock offs. I just bought a pediatric/ infant one from steeles.com for 78.99 plus shipping if you want to look there

    I know for nursing school I got the Prestige medical clinical I, it is comprable to the Littman classic II but costs a bit less. I know when if first tried it, I could not hear a dang thing out of it. It came with the hard ear pieces attached, and 2 sizes of soft earpieces. Put the small soft ear pieces on, and could hear beautifully.
