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.

Been using this brand for over 30 years, it's an excellent product. Just started the next generation of Littmann users as this purchase was made for my daughter
Stethoscope for Acoustical Testing Purposes
Some years ago I bought an inexpensive stethoscope for acoustical testing purposes, and it was useless. I have a new current Client with an odd project problem, and I decided to buy a full-quality steth - a "Classic III". I can say that it met my needs and is distinctly superior to the thing I bought before. (That one goes to the trash!) Glad I bought it.

Excellent delivery time!
Gift for nursing student
As my title indicates, this purchase was bought as a gift for a nursing student.
I was disappointed with the size of the engraving. It was clearly a misunderstanding on my part. Had I known where the engraving would have been placed. I would've had a complete name instead of just initials being engraved.
I did not contact stethoscope.com about my misunderstand.
Excellent purchase,always had the cardiology lll, but with this one, it's almost like the same, excellent acoustics, great value and savings,love the color too,very happy with my purchase ,came very quickly ???
Ordering was simple. Shipping was fast even with an engraving. I would definitely order from stethoscope.com again.
Order shipped fast with no problems
