My favorite affordable stethoscope! I used one in school and bought one for EMTs I supervise now! Will buy more.
Cost Effective and Durable

I ordered this for my four ambulances, 2,000 call / year agency to stock in our first in bags. My medics and EMTs all said they liked the fit and the membrane worked well at transmitting heart and lung sounds, however it did not do well when not place directly against the skin and cannot be tuned. It performed adequately for blood pressure assessment. The length is just right to hang around your neck and not get in the way and the light weight nature made it a good choice for an already too heavy kit bag. The tubing exiting the bell tended to bend and deconform, threatening the interior integrity of the item. Adjusting the bell from adult to pediatric was challenging but once the joint was loosened up, worked well. I would not recommend it for use during intubation as you may not be able to discern airway flow appropriately, but for first in or BLS only kit bag, it is very effective and holds up to our moderately high call volume. Considering the cost of a good Littmann, this was in the right price range for our needs.
Good ear fit
Tubing deforms if mishandled
Poor choice for confirming ET tube placement
Bell is not tunable
Performs poorly if not placed against direct skin
Overall: 4 out of 5 stars. This is a good, lightweight, durable stethoscope if treated with a modicum of respect and not just dumped on the bottom of your airway bag (under 02 cylinder, etc.). It's a Littmann so it comes with a good name and guarantee behind it. The different colors are a plus, but only added aesthetics, which is why I didn't mention it in this review. I would re-order this for my agency again. I would purchase this myself if I was a new EMT, however, as a Paramedic, I would not purchase this for myself as my primary set of ears.
