Durability comes at the right size for your smallest patients with the ADC® Adscope® Infant Stainless Steel Stethoscope. This scaled-down design offers the same features you love about the Adscope® with sizing and sensitivity for infants.
Love my purchase!!!! The bell is real metal so it has a little weight to it which some people may not like. I personally like it having some weight. The particular adscope I purchased was the all black ninja. To get the heavier one you need to make sure you get that exact one. I had a co-worker order one and they got a different all black version that was more light weight. I am very pleased with the ear cushions and sound quality.
As a flight RN/Paramedic I use this model and can hear no difference when compared to previous littmanns that I've owned (and I'm hard of hearing). It also weighs the same as the Classic II. The nice thing about the ADC brand is it doesn't go "missing" as often as my fancy Littmanns did. Let's face it, as an RN or Paramedic you don't listen to anything that requires a cardiologist level stethoscope. This model is more than adequate for listening to standard heart tones, breath sounds, bowel movements, blood pressures, etc.. save yourself the money! PREVIOUS STETHOSCOPES: Littmann Master Cardiology, Littmann Lightweight, Littmann Classic II (X2), ADC "adult".
Received my new stethoscope and am quite pleased! The sound quality is great for the price and it is much heavier than the one provided in my jump bag.
