    I've heard the cardiology ones work wonderfully...I'm really leaning towards getting one. They are a little on the expensive side, but I see it as an investment (as long as it doesn't get stolen!)

    I agree, and as far as it getting stolen, I recommend getting it engraved....

    Oh yeah, I've had several people suggest that to me so I will definitely be doing that! Thanks!

    The cardiology is SO heavy!! It weighed a ton on my neck, made my jacket lopsided if I put it in my jacket pocket, and made my pants hard to keep up when I wore it on a hip clip. I got one for school & ended up buying a master classic which is much lighter & performs the same, I think. I agree with getting it engraved, whichever you choose.

    I got a Littman Master Classic and love it! I can hear breath sounds even on a morbidly obese patient with no problems at all. I had it engraved, and managed to lose it on the first day of lab. Luckily, someone turned it into lost and found. I feel that having it engraved helped with that.

    My boyfriend has a littman classic II and really likes it. However, a nurse I know has the littman cardiology one and the sound is Awesome! I start in January as well and am leaning towards the cardiology one.
