I used a cheap stethoscope all through nursing school. I had no idea what I was missing. I can hear faint murmurs and breath sounds unbelievable well with this. It was so easy to hear it seemed loud at first and took a bit of getting used but I love it.
It is a beautiful stethoscope, I got the engraving on the tubing and head. Looks amazing. The price was about the same as other sites but they didn't offer engraving which I thought was important since it was so expensive and someone could steal it. The only thing I didn't like was that shipping was high.
I am a paramedic firefighter and this stethoscope works great for pretty much all my needs. I am really a fan of the peds bell for when I have kiddos I am looking after. Great sound volume and clarity. My only gripe is the way they engraving was done on the body of the stethoscope, weird color and it looks kind of goofy. Other than that, great buy.
Works well. Durable. Easily change from a large to small diaphragm when going from adult to infant.
