Introducing the most advanced stethoscope yet, with up to 40x amplification (at peak frequency, versus analog mode), active noise cancellation, in-app sound wave visualization and a host of other powerful new features designed to help give you a clearer picture of your patient’s health. It’s time to listen like never before with the comfort and confidence of the new 3M™ Littmann® CORE Digital Stethoscope.
The FDA-cleared 3M Littmann CORE Stethoscope toggles between analog and amplified listening modes so you can listen how you want to during assessments. Tunable diaphragm technology—a 3M invention—lets you hear different frequency sounds by simply adjusting the pressure on the chestpiece. Hold the chestpiece with light pressure on the patient to hear low frequency sounds; press a little more to hear higher frequency sounds. Soft-sealing ear tips conform to individual ears for optimal comfort and excellent sound occlusion.
The 3M Littmann CORE Stethoscope works with Eko software on iOS and Android devices, giving you a HIPAA compliant means to save and annotate 15, 30, 60 or 120-second recordings in a secure dashboard. Create a library of heart sounds to monitor the progressions of a disease or for education, and securely share recordings with colleagues.
40X amplification based on comparison of analog versus electronically assisted amplified listening with maximum volume at the peak frequency (125 Hz). 2Smart device not included

The Littmann CORE Digital Stethoscope has allowed me to hear faint cardiac murmurs and heart sounds that I could have had the potential to miss. It has allowed me to listen to unclear crackles in patients with acute heart failure. This has guaranteed that my patients are not receiving subpar care from their cardiovascular provider.
With the recording capabilities of the Littmann CORE and Eko App, it has also allowed me to record murmurs and heart sounds on my cell phone and permitted me to acquire a second opinion from my supervising physicians if I am unsure of what I am listening to. The recordings also allow me to review murmurs to make sure when I encounter them again, I know what I am listening to as well as formulate the appropriate plan of care for my patients based on my physical exam.
The noise cancellation capacity of the Littmann CORE has given me the skill to hear indistinct murmurs/heart sounds in a boisterous environment that is the hospital systems I round for.
Auscultation is, if not, the most fundamental part of a cardiology provider's physical exam. Undoubtedly, the Littmann CORE has given me the confidence to perfect my auscultation skills, especially at a time where I have been transitioning from a recent graduate to a practicing clinician.
