Great Stethescope, however sounds the same as the Littmann 3000

Sounds the same as the older Littmann 3000. My 3000 was starting to break after may years of service, so upgraded. Hoped the 3100 would be even better, but sounds basically the same as the 3000. All their noise-cancelling stethoscopes are amazing, and if you have any difficulty hearing in general, then they are pretty much a necessity.

I just retired a Littman 3000 after many years of service. I am a veterinarian and it was used 5-6 days a week for years. It was the best stethoscope I ever owned. So far, the new 3001 model is performing just as well. Timely delivery.

Only lasted 2-3 years

At first, I was quite pleased with this stethoscope and its performance. I began to have trouble with the sound in its second year, and it began to fall apart, disconnecting from the battery pack and control panel. It was out of warranty but for over $300, I feel it should last a lot longer. I won't purchase again.

Littman 3100 Electronic Stethoscope

This stethoscope is to replace a 3200 which quit just a couple of weeks after the warranty. That 3200 was to replace the prior electronic Littman that failed after two years and that one to replace the one before that....I think that for investing over $300 on a piece of equipment like this, we should expect better quality. Littman has great customer service but only mediocre products...perhaps they are emulating WelchAllen? If anyone made a similar product I would try it next.

Littmann 3100 Electronic With Ambient Noise Reduction Stethoscope

This was a gift for my daughter who just has a year and a half left in her doctorate residency in Internal Medicine so I haven't actually seen the item. She says that this stethoscope is particularly useful when trying to listen to heart and internal body sounds in a person that has additional thickness between the skin and the heart or part of the body that she is listening to. Big improvement over a regular stethoscope. She is very happy with the product.

Overall disappointed - don't throw your old stethoscope away.

I am a full-time general pediatrician with > 20 years experience. I have used Littmann pediatric stethoscopes for decades. I bought this stethoscope because of the noise cancelling feature. First, the positives: 1) the stethoscope performs well at high frequencies, and this is useful for murmurs in infants. Second, there is a modest degree of noise attenuation. I can see where this may be of value in a noisy ER or for EMS personnel in the field. But (now the negatives) the noise attenuation is really quite modest. I was expecting something along the lines of my Bose headphones. Forget it. Not even close. Second, the diaphragm setting eliminates many mid frequencies that are necessary to assess lung sounds in children. At the same time, the bell setting attenuates mid and high frequencies so well that I find this setting is useless for pulmonary auscultation. What they need is a setting that allows BOTH to be heard simultaneously. Lastly, the heart rate monitor works on infants < 5% of the time and on school a

Poor for exercise blood pressures

Works great for those heard to hear low BPs and for lung sounds but I work in cardiac/pulmonary rehab and need to take exercise BPs frequently. Very hard to hear while someone is on the treadmill and hard to hold in place on a moving target. Diaphragm cover also frequently falls off and the film covering it has peeled off. Waste of my money unfortunately.

LITTMAN 3100

I am a physician. Thus far, this (3100)stethoscope has NOT performing at par for Littman. Contrary to what is stated in manual, it rarely provides a reading of the patient's heart rate when diaphragm is held over the heart apex area for many seconds. It amplifies all noises in addition to the ones you're interested in. Rubbing against skin produces significant noise interference. It feels this product needs refinement and I feel I did not get the quality I paid for. Overall, I am NOT satisfied with this purchase. I would also know how I could safely clean/disinfect it please.

Why did I wait for so long?

I have needed an enhanced stethoscope as my hearing is just not what it used to be, and this one is it! I'm now asking myself, Why did I wait so long? I use this scope in the field, and it helps me listen despite all the noise around me! I have recommended the 3100 to all of my colleagues and after they've tried it and then use their own, they want mine!

Littman 3100 Electronic with Ambient Nose Reduction

I absolutely Love my new Littman. I was worried about spending so much on a stethoscope without being able to try it first. I have been in the Respiratory care field for over 20 years. I can not Give enough praise to Littman 3100. All I can say.. IT'S Wonderful. I now have others at work that are looking into purchasing one after trying mine. Its my personal opinion that this is the Best of the Best.

Registered Nurse

I bought this stethescope after another amplified stethescope that I have been using for years stopped working. I wear hearing aids and take my aids out and crank the sound up. I was nervous buying one over the internet without trying it out first, but I did my homework, and boy did it pay off! I can hear just as well with this stethescope as the one that died. I also like that the controls are near the diaphram where your fingers are anyway. I do not mind taking my aids out to oscultate sounds. I just worn my patients not to say anything important to me untill they are back in. This is the way I have done it for years. The sound from the stethescope is clear, and the background noises are indeed minimized. What a joy after years of using older techmology! I also like the feature that displays the pulse rate right on the back of the diaphram, saving me a little time. Overall I am very pleased with my purchase. As an added bonus, by purchesing it here, I saved so much money that I had it ingraved and had mone

worth every penny

I was a little apprehensive spending this much money sight unseen (or unheard in this case), but this stethoscope is AMAZING! Fantastic clarity and easy to use controls. Does display patient's heart rate, but I wouldn't necessarily rely on it's reading in place of actually counting for myself

Great Steth!

I teach students to NEVER listen to breath sounds (especially kids) through clothing. The noise reduction is good enough to hear through clothes and hear murmurs and egophony and petroliloquy right through the clothes, though this still would not be a good practice. Almost too sensitive, but great for these old ears. Pricey, but worth it, especially if this is your first device. You sure will use it in clinical medicine no matter what field you are in. If you need to hear more than blood pressures, consider this steth.

I love this steth. The only complaint that I would register is that I was hoping that ""ambient noise reduction"" would reduce the level of noise associated with manipulation of the device. This has not been the case, however, once in place and no shirt rubbing over the back of fingers etc... you can pick up the faintest of sounds. Overall, very pleased.

Great Value

With different earpieces (purchased separately) this stethoscope works great with my ITC hearing aids. The operation is very simple and straight forward. I like that I can preprogram the settings. Most of my pts. don't even realize there is anything different between my stethoscope and others. So far battery life seems good. Very happy with my purchase.

Worth it, and improved from the 3000

Use it daily as a replacement for my old 3000, whose arm snapped. This one is much-improved, primarily with better sound amplification and noticeably-better ambient noise reduction. I definitely like that there's a screen readout so you can see what volume setting you're really on. (With the old one I just had to guess, hard with 7 or 8 different levels.) The pulse-reader is cute, but takes too long to capture for it to actually be useful.

I got it for my dad, He's a cardiologist and kind of starting to have hearing problems, He says the stethoscope is fantastic and very helpful and easy to use. I can't throw more details since I'm not the final user, so far my dad is very happy with this stethoscope.

good stethoscope

I have used electronic stethoscopes for over 12 years now due to hearing loss. This one is the best. Appears solid in the headpiece, not ""plasticky"" like so many others. Headpiece is easy to clean with alcohol swab, no creases that accumulate debris or germs. Sound quality is adequate, and the feel is good. The biggest problem I have had with the stethoscopes over the years is that the wires break from folding it to put in your pocket, or maybe just from general use. We will have to see how long this one lasts.

Second try,

The first Littmann 3100 sent to me wouldn't work properly out of the box. It had a problem with the connection where the head comes off to insert the battery. The connection was bad and only gave loud static. I returned it and was immediately sent a working unit. This stethoscope is great. I can hear bowel sounds when auscultating the heart! O.K., maybe that is not a good thing, but I can hear very well with this. I can hear breath sounds clearly and last week I identified a murmur. I love this stethoscope, just hope it lasts. Had to remove the name plate I bought (Black Identification Tag, $3.98) specifically for this tubing--and paid $7 to have engraved-because the name plate wouldn't lay flat and kept catching on everything, especially hair.

Better than the no name electronic stethoscope I had.

I was pleased to find I had much more amplification, better noise reduction ( still not all I could hope for). It was very nice to see it used a conventional battery. I used to have to order a $20 replacement battery for my no name

Great volume controls.

I bought this stethoscope because I wear hearing aids in both ears. Although I have to remove my hearing aids to use this stethoscope, the electronic volume controls make up all the difference. I can hear the sounds I need to hear & can distinguish them. It is a benefit to have to scope look ""normal"" rather than the headset style stethoscope typically recommended for hearing aid wearers.

Excellent diagnostic tool

I would give this product a 4.5 star rating. The only reason I can't give it 5 stars is I trialed the 3200 and was under the impression the 3100 had all the same acoustic features. I was disappointed to find it did not have the extended frequency listening capability.I have been delighted with the acoustics. It is truly incredible to hear crystal clear breath sounds and heart sounds. It is no heavier than the master cardiology, and the battery is easy to replace. I have recommended the 3100 to several colleagues.

Well worth the money.

I purchased this stethoscope about 2 weeks ago and love it. I work as a paramedic in EMS and had a cardiology III prior to this. Althought the III was good it was hard to take a BP or listen to heart/lung sounds going down the road but with this 3100 I can do B/P's and hear a flea hickup in the back of the medic unit. I would recommend this unit to anyone. Would make a good gift for someone who is fixing to graduate a medic class. Also this unit isnt all that heavy.
