The main reason I have and use a Littman is 1)my mother bought it for my birthday and had it engraved and 2) it is much lighter and 3)it fits in my pocket better.I can't say this enough. Walmart has a great stethoscope in a box for $15 bucks. I have had several Littmanns and couldn't hear a thing (just me?). This is a great professional looking stethoscope that I can hear a gnat's heart with.
If money is an object, I would suggest that you can survive clinicals just fine with a cheap scope. The one I used for school cost $11. The one I used years ago as an EMT was $8. I heard everything I needed to hear.
