The Jabes Electronic Stethoscope amplifies the original body sound twenty times. It has a simple button mode changer. An integrated electronic filter allows you to change the frequency mode of the stethoscope with the press of a fingertip. With the Jabes Analyzer software, you can display and visualize the body sound you are observing in real time. You can easily record the sound when using the stethoscope away from the office with many types of simple, portable recording equipment. You can transfer sound data via the internet.
This stethoscope meets my needs as a recent user of hearing aids, working as a doc in an ED. With aids in my ears, the old unamplified stethoscope didn't work any more. The amplification here does the trick for me. And I like having something that looks like a normal stethoscope rather than a bluetooth head that could get lost more easily, or a head that attaches to a smart phone. And I don't want to use headphones in the ED. You have to get used to artifact noise and how to minimize it, but I figure that's part of using an amplified stethoscope. The bell and diaphragm features work well at emphasizing low and high pitched sounds. A couple of caveats: the switch can accidentally be pushed on and left on, draining battery, and there isn't a small pediatric head. And the price is right.
When people ask me what I think of the JABES stethoscope, I tell them that I hear more, in less time, with more accuracy than I had imagined. I listen with new confidence and pay closer attention to subtle sounds that I have never heard before. I liked it so much that I bought it after a few days use and would recommend it to any practicing physician.
Jabes - recently purchased to see if I could better interpret cardiac sound with and amplified stethoscope. Hard to hear secondary to feedback when touching skin or clothes. Would never purchase again. Went back to Littman.
Prompt delivery inexcellent packing, All the features and functions I needed PLUS recording and computer analysis and memory. A jewel I recommend to anyone in my position, and students if they can afford its reasonable (bargan) price. Allheart has been a pleasure to deal with.
