The 3M™ Littmann Classic III Stethoscope is the latest version of the stethoscope that helps millions of medical professionals achieve their best. The Classic III stethoscope offers high acoustic sensitivity for exceptional performance, plus a versatile two-sided chestpiece with tunable diaphragms. The Classic III stethoscope is used by students and medical professionals alike to identify, listen to, and study heart, lung, and other body sounds for physical assessment, patient monitoring, and diagnosis.
Tunable diaphragm technology -- a 3M invention -- lets clinicians hear different frequency sounds by simply adjusting the pressure on the chestpiece. Hold the chestpiece with light pressure to hear low frequency sounds; press a little more to hear higher frequency sounds. This time-saving feature allows the healthcare provider to focus on the patient, while the non-chill diaphragm provides patient comfort.
Headset tension is easily adjusted for head size and comfort by squeezing together or pulling apart the eartubes. Snap-tight, soft-sealing eartips conform to individual ears for an excellent acoustic seal and comfortable fit. Eartips snap firmly onto the ends of the eartubes and, for safety, require a significant effort to remove.
Resilient next-generation tubing retains its shape and flexibility even after folding tightly into a pocket. It provides longer stethoscope life due to improved resistance to skin oils and alcohol, and is less likely to pick up stains. Next-generation tubing is not made with natural rubber latex, a benefit to sensitive medical professionals and their patients. And, to play its part in the protection of human health and the environment, the next-generation tubing does not contain phthalate plasticizers.
The Classic III stethoscope is made in the USA for consistent quality. It comes complete with large and small soft-sealing eartips, non-chill bell sleeve, and instructions.
- Two-sided chestpiece with tunable diaphragms on both the adult and pediatric sides.
- Single-piece tunable diaphragm is easy to attach, and easier to clean because its surface is smooth without crevices.
- Pediatric side converts to a traditional open bell by replacing the single-piece diaphragm with a non-chill rim.
- Next-generation tubing provides longer life due to improved resistance to skin oils and alcohol; less likely to pick up stains.
- Small tunable diaphragm is useful for pediatric, small, or thin patients; around bandages; and for carotid assessment.

Very good quality. Shipped in a very secured and good packing
Littmann and 3M continue to make high quality and reliable instruments. I was gifted a Classic II by my father when I went to medical school, and my mentor in pulmonology gifted me the double headed stereoscope, which is no longer made. I now, more than 40 years later, bought this Classic III for my son, as he starts down his path towards being a paramedic. He doesn't know it yet, but the repairs offered by 3M are some of the best deals one can get on what is essentially a "new" stethoscope. It will keep the scope alive for years to come.
Simple and effective!
It was a present for my husband, he like it so much
Good scope, was supposed to have adjustable ear pieces. They are not at all adjustable. It's a very good scope, a little uncomfortable not being really adjustable.
I'm pleased with my purchase, very nice, high quality product. Impressed with the look and feel. Ingraved gives it a special touch.
This is a high quality stethoscope - perfect for any healthcare provider. The engraving was done perfectly as requested, and the shipping was fast!
Quick delivery. Excellent quality. A good opgrade from my last stethoscope.
Always excellent quality with Littman stethoscopes!
I’ve always been weaker in my auscultation skills, but with this stethoscope I feel fully confident that weak equipment had set me back. With this, the sounds are crystal clear, the ear pieces fit in comfortably without the need for tedious adjustments, and the material seems high quality enough to last many years. Thank you!
greta product and service
I am glad I spent the extra money and went with this one vs a cheaper brand. I am a nursing student, a fellow student went with a cheaper brand and we both couldn’t hear anything with it, mine is very clear.
It’s nice to have my name engraved on it too, because stethoscopes seem to wander.
