Littmann vs MDF stethoscope

Posted

I've always used a Littmann lightweight and was going to upgrade to a classic II, but had heard from a coworker that MDF stethoscopes are very comparable to the Littmann at half the price. Has anyone compared the two? What do you think??

Thanks

I have a Littman.

Are there any reviews or comparisons online?

I read some reviews of the MDF on Amazon and many people said that it was just as good or even better than Littmann

The professors at my school recommend the MDF.

Edit to add: I have no experience yet with stethoscopes as I have hearing aids and have special needs. Just relaying the info I've been given.

Update: I purchased the MDF...used it for the first time last noc at work and it is amazing! Better than my Littmann Lightweight!
