I am an RN and I have to say that this is the best stethoscope I've ever owned. It is a little pricey, understandably, however it is worth every dollar in my opinion. This stethoscope is extremely clear, light weight, easy to use, and ear piece is at the perfect curve and adjustable (and I have sensitive ears). I perform constant assessments and triage and couldn't imagine using anything else, it's my most vital tool.
- At first , the fit may be a little uncomfortable to the ears, but keep using it, it will conform the shape of your ear and head size quickly with continued use.
- And the color suggested may not be true to life. I ordered Plum and it seems more like a dark 'purple like burgundy' to me. The pictures are brighter than the actual product. Probably because of the plastic medium and shiny finishing.
I've owned mine for 3 years and have no problems with it. I ordered once recently as a graduation gift. I always say to people 'a real Nurse owns a Littmann'
