Littmann is known to give customers reliability and efficiency in its products and what I can really tell about 3M Littmann Master Cardiology Stethoscope is that it’s a Pro. It has no match with other scopes that come under this price range or below. I owned Littmann Classic III, Lightweight II S.E. and other high priced Scopes in the past but Master cardiology is what one need for a “Critical Auscultation”. It is specifically designed for precision and possesses potential acoustic abilities. Earlier, the scopes that I had, served me well but always lagged sensitivity to soft bruits, burbles and to deliver better acoustic response.
It has Dual-Lumen tubing that serves acuity and more accuracy. I have been a Physician for 7 years now and I know how important it is to have a scope that has a good low frequency response which is vital for hearing sounds from heart sections. This is a must buy if you intend to use it for specific purposes. Though, I faced problem with putting on the adapter (it took like forever) but once it was on, it was ear-blowing.
The sound travels from the chest piece to the ear tips with minimum loss and you can hear every decibel of the internal sound. The ear tips are much softer than other Littmann’s product and provide almost complete noise isolation. I am very much satisfies with my purchase and according to me, Master cardiology truly lives up to the brand name and the price.
It offers a splendid 7 years warranty, which in my opinion gives you the luxury of squeezing every dollar of your paid money and make it worth and you won’t have to bother spending a single nickel over it till that time. Wear and tear problems are almost none (I’ve been using this scope for about 8 months now), as the tubing and joints are perfectly molded and feels solid with the cast stainless steel that its parts are made of. Though the weight due to it gets up but it isn’t that much that you would feel uncomfortable carrying whole day.
It offers a wide range of colors to suit your taste which makes it so “wannabe”. I bought this black edition on my daughter’s recommendation (I wanted the Caribbean blue). Though it slapped me a few extra dollars, but it’s gorgeous in real and really cool with the black matte chestpiece at the end. So I recommend all the potential buyers out here to buy this product, it might loosen up your wallet a bit but will serve you long and will never fail you with your expectation. It is built for precision and that is what exactly it delivers.>>Click here to buy the Stethoscope from Amazon
