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.

Shipped within 24 hours. arrived quickly and perfectly engraved. Weight was lighter than I thought (a good thing). To use and wear, it was actually pretty comfortable and doesn't pull on my ears or feel like it is driving into my head through my ears. *ouch* Little bit of a learning curve to listen but then again, I had my last stethoscope for almost 30 years and was very used to it.
Just what I ordered!
Great item and the engraving was done great.
Perfect in every way. The color, the quality, and the engraving.
Love the color choices
Fast shipping and easy process. Nice stethoscope and I can hear clearly.
The quality of my new stethoscope is superb ! The engraving is so cool !! I love it. The quick delivery was so unexpected- i ordered it and two days later it arrived ! Awesome service.
I love my stethoscope! It even came sooner than what I was expecting. Will definitely be buying my next one from here!
I ordered my stethoscope and had it in a couple days!! I had my name inprinted and it was perfect! Definitely would order from here again.
I have used Littman stethoscopes for 36 years in my nursing career. My daughter is starting nursing school this month and I wanted her to have the best tool for the job. She received her stethoscope days sooner than we expected. Thank you!
I've been ordering these scopes as gifts for graduates for a few years and they arrive very promptly and are terrific.
Love my new stethoscope. It's clear, it's the right colour that I love and the engraving job is great. I love see my name clearly written, hopefully no one will steal it.
