Stethoscope that doesn't hurt

  1. Does anyone who has had a lot of ear infections as a child and tubes that left lots of scaring in your ear have a favorite stethoscope? I've tried a number of different ones including most recently the Littmann III. They've all hurt my ears within seconds of putting them on.

    Have you tried changing the ear buds?

    Try changing the ear buds - I switched the factory one's on my Littman for soft silicone ones and now won't use anything else - and they are not even expensive.

    Changing the ear buds also helped me. I didn't have ear infections, but do have an awkward piercing which impeded my hearing. Good ear buds made all the difference!
