To buy a Stethoscope in New York

  1. 0 Hello and good evening!

    Im on my way to New York in a couple of months and i was wondering if anyone have any advice of good medical stores to buy a stethoscope in?

    Im not from the USA (i hope you can read my poor english) and the price is 50% compared to my countrys prices for stethoscopes.

    So any advice of good shops in New york would be more then welcome!

    Im also intrested in what you think is a good stethoscope for a nurse at a Emergency ward (thats me).

    Thank you!

    Maybe try posting on the NY forum. I just moved to New York and don't know of any places as of yet, but if I hear of a good one I'll let you know. Good luck!

    The online store where I have gotten most of my stuff has been from They seem to have a really good selection of products and at good prices. The stethoscope that I have is a Littman Master Classic II and I'm really happy with it, but I don't have any experience working in an ER to test it out there, though it seems to block out a lot of outside noise. I'll keep you posted if I hear of any good stores in the city.

    Do check shipping costs when buying online - some stores () will even ship for free for a first order!

    Do also consider the alternatives to Littmann - Trimline's (DRG) PureTone, Riester's cardiophon and the MDF range are among the best.

    Look also for GELseal eartips and SafeSEAL Soft Stethoscope Diaphragms with antimicrobial treatment.
