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.

I can't speak to how the stethoscope itself performs because it's a gift for my husband; however, I placed my order with engraving, and it shipped the same day! Amazing customer service, and I would definitely do business with Stethoscope.com in the future.
Great Product very satisfied.
This is a quality product, shipped fast and the laser engraving looks like it was done in the factory. The only Issue, This exact item went on sale at a competitors site for $20 less. Other than that, I have told several of my RN colleagues to check this out!
The purchase was efficient and clearly outlined the details of the product. It only took a few days to ship the Stethoscope to my home and it arrived in perfect condition! I loved all the color options as well!
Excellent service!! Overall, great experience. I would definitely purchase from them again.

thanks for providing an excellent product and service.
I have ordered several scopes from this company and never been disappointed. Professional engraving and crazy quick turn around. Thank You
Easy -peasy...polite over the phone..quick delivery
Very fast delivery, recommend.
Just got my product and it looks amazing! Craftmanship is superb but sound level/quality is really lower than that of Cardiology that I ordered for my girl friend before. Though it's expected because Cardiology has really higher quality than Classic.
Will order again from stethoscope.com if ever I need more stethoscope (gift, personal use etc.)
This stethoscope is so much more beautiful in person. I had ordered it Saturday with engraving, and well they're only open on business days but it still shipped Monday afternoon! Not only that, but I received it Wednesday morning by 8AM! The engraving is super sharp and crisp, and the Times font looks classy. Definitely happy with this purchase and excited to use this thing all throughout nursing school and well into my nursing career!
