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.

The engraving turned out great and the stethoscope looked just like the pictures!
Love this stethoscope! Got pen on it the 1st day. Sent it to the repair spot and they sent it back within a week with new tubing! Excellent customer service. I highly recommend
Always go with a Littmann!
Purchased as a gift. As always great quality. Quick shipping.
The cord length was to short
I ordered this with personalized engraving as a graduation gift for a family member. The company did ship the gift priority mail, however the US Postal service somehow lost the package even with a tracking number. i had to cancel the order and the company was very good about a prompt refund to my credit card. I can't rate the actual product, but recommend only shipping via Fed Ex or UPS and never with the postal service so no one else has this experience.
Ordered for a friend as a gift for just officially completing her residency. Ordered rush shipping and paid the extra charge only thing wasn’t happy about wasn’t informed someone had to be home to sign for so had to go to Post Office to pick up the day after I needed it. Recipient however loved and engraving came out perfect and was exactly what I was looking for.
Love the the personal touch / engraving
Bought for my wife. Fast shipment and great product. Engraving came out perfect.
