Pricier than competitors, fast engraving/ship time. I was initially disappointed by this stethoscope because I switched from the DLX triple head - the sounds are just not as loud and in a noisy room I am hard pressed to hear anything at all. As stethoscopes have a way of "walking off" in the clinics and sometimes hours are unpredictable, I wanted to buy a lighter and cheaper stethoscope without compromising quality. Using back-to-back with any of the Littman's, I just don't understand why people are so enamored with that brand. Although I wish I purchased a double tubed instead of this little guy, I am overall pleased with this purchase despite my initial disappointment. This item was engraved before being shipped to me and I received it much sooner than the stated delivery date.
