I have purchased every stethoscope Littmann makes except the electronic ones, in search of the perfect scope. The Cardiology III is the BEST, even over the Master Cardiologist....at least for MY profession. I work on an ambulance and anything below the Cardiology III will not work on the wide variety of patients I encounter. The Master Cardiologist is a great scope OUTSIDE the ambulance or field environment, but WAY too sensitive for field work. The Cardiology III is THE perfect scope for all around use. In the hospital, in the field, and inside a noisy ambulance, you can't ask for a better scope!!
this is the best yet, Ii love the dual head setup that works well from my 9 lb patients to my 200lb teens with the same wonderful acoustics, thanks fo another great product!
This is my second one, I including others liked this stethescope so much that it got stolen at work. Even with my name laser etched on it??? What people will do. Keep an eye on yours, this one is flashy. Great tones, perfect for an assessment, BP's, lungs sounds, heart sounds etc...
I have been in EMS since 2007, and started out with a double tube scope. Got a Cardio III when I was in Paramedic school and did not realize what I was missing when listening to my patients. This is the only stethoscope that I have used that I can hear clear lung sounds and heart tones in the back of an ambulance even with the engine running and going emergency to the hospital. My old Cardio III black edition walked off at a ER but it is worth the cost to replace it with another littmann. I would recommend this model to anyone in EMS, ER, or other Critical Care areas where you have a mix of adult and pediatric patient.
The package arrived sooner than I expected, but it was in the exact condition that I expected: Impeccable. Thanks for a good purchase and quality products!!
I finally had to replace my original Cardiology III that I got as a 1st year medical student. The internal spring broke and repair by 3M costs over half the price of a new one. I love the black-on-black edition. Looks very cool & yet professional. Cardiology III has the multi-purpose functionality I need as a family physician treating newborns to elderly. The soft tips originally on it were too soft, actually collapsed on themselves & impaired sound transmission. The hard rubber tips work perfectly for me, and their gray color actually makes the black-on-black style stand out more.
I don't know because I purchased this for my daughter who is graduating next month from college with her BSN in Nursing. She specifically asked for this because while in school, she did clinicals at different hospitals and found that she likes this stethoscope.
efficient top of the line
This stethoscope has excellent acoustics and the thick tubing helps minimize outside noise as well as essentially eliminate an artifact noise normally found when thinner tubes rub against skin, clothes, etc.
The product was shipped in a timely manner and was what I ordered.
The black edition looks sharp and i love that the product was able to be personalized.

This is a great stethoscope- I highly recommed it.
This stethoscope rocks! I get compliments from others about how sleek it look. Sound quality rocks and I can hear things much better than before.
I can hear heart sounds really clearly!
I love it. The quality and sound is great.
My husband-to-be just graduated from medical school. I had the idea to get him a stethoscope for his birthday and then get it inscribed with his name when he graduated. I ended up dragging my feet on buying one because he couldn't decide which one he wanted. About 10 days before graduation, I panicked and went online to see what stores even supply stethoscopes in Michigan. I found a page that had mentioned that she got her Cardiology III- which is what he finally said he would like- engraved and shipped for less than her local bookstore at allheart.com. I found this Black Edition and knew it was the right pick. I never thought it would make it in time due to the personalization so I was VERY impressed when it showed up with days to spare! He was so surprised and excited to see his name with DR in front for the first time. :)
Nice stethoscope. All black is makes it look really slick.
WORKS GREAT FOR MY POSITION IN EMS AND CARDIAC REHAB
High quality and technology. These are for sure the two attributes that come to mind when thinking about Littmann's scopes.Tube and head engraving nicely done!
It's perfect - best functioning and best looking scope I've ever had. Customer service was, as always, especially good!
Great looking and personally I think it sounds better then the master cardiology
I absolutely love everything about it. The black edition is perfect to tell it apart from others and gives it a sleek look. The monogrammed name is perfect, just wish it was on both sides of the tubing. The sound quality is amazing!
This stethoscope is actually a little heavier than I expected. But I like that. The construction is what I normally expect from LIttman, the only reason for this purchase is because my other one (15 yrs old) is finally starting to show some wear. The All black edition stands out.
THE PRODUCT: The Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope (Black Edition) is an EXCELLENT stethoscope; it is constructed with fine workmanship and fine material; it is sealed well. I am a nursing student and find it very easy to hear everything with this stethoscope. I purchased a personalized Black Edition and am very happy with its appearance and uniqueness; if I leave it behind, it will be very easy for others to identify who it belongs to and return it.
I have used many Littmann Stethoscopes in the past and have found this one to be my favorite by far. The sound quality is amazing and I would highly recommend it to anyone else.
No problems so far.
Great product. The stethoscope is lightweight, comfortable to wear and carry, and the sound quality is exceptional. Definitely worth the money if you plan to use on a regular basis. If you plan to only use a few times a week the look at the lower model Littmans.Allheart.com was one of the best prices and delivered the stethoscope with engraving in great time.
Awsome stethoscope. Great quality.
Beautiful to look at and listen to!
The Cardio III Black Edition is all that is advertised to be. It was presented as a Christmas gift and was enthusiastically received. Your prompt processing of the order and shipment ensured that it was here in plenty of time for the holiday.Thank you for a great product and great service at a very competitive price.
My daughter is in nursing school and has worked at a pediatrics office for 6 years. This is the stethoscope recommended by the doctors at her practice. Their choice was based on price, performance at that price point and their experiences with the brand/product.
very well received by my son for the holidays.
I have used this product before, also purchased here. My last one was ""borrowed"" at work and was missing in action. Great product, works well. I find as I age, I need a better stethoscope, and this one works well. The all black edition looks sharp! To help keep it with me longer, I opted for the engraving on two places. Lets hope it helps.....
Scope is awesome! Looks great! Get it personalized so it won't walk away. Or at least deter from theft. It's well worth the money.
First time I know this stethoscope is when I practicing in a clinic.That time a retailer comes and demonstrate this product. I'm very impressed with the sound of the heart that this item produce. Actually, I have one of littmann product (The Classic II S.E) but the quality of sounds that both item produce is different. My Classic II S.E only heard one sound at the systolic, but the Cardiology III can't separate that, into actually TWO sounds in systolic. Amazing!!I wish I could have it one with my name engraved in there.. :)
I can hear things that I have never heard before... DHT has turned into WNL or others... I have recommended this stethoscope and this website (best prices) to everyone I work with.
I ordered this item very last minute and needed it prior to a trip I was taking out of town to do some clinicals. It arrived in great condition, exactly as ordered, and in time for my trip! I couldn't be more pleased. I wish I had ordered the lettering for my name on the tubing rather than on the head of the stethoscope; it is hard to see.
I worked in cardiology for 6 years and I always liked the Littmann stethoscopes when I used them at work. When I went to med school my school offered a great deal on TYCOS Harvey Elite stethoscopes and unfortunately I fell for it. I couldn't hear a thing with it. I broke down and forked out the money for the Cardiology III and I couldn't be happier. I love the way that it sounds and feels. I love the pressure sensitive head. I love everything about it. Simply the best.
Great stethoscope functionally. But from day received it, the diaphragm on pediatric bell side kept coming off...I would reassemble it, but it would soon fall off again. Finally I lost both the diaphragm and snap-ring that holds on the diaphragm. Have had several Littman stethoscopes (some 20 years old) over the years used heavily and never once a broken one.Called Allheart and they referred me to Littmann who promptly sent me replacement pieces without hesitation. It was covered under warranty. Great customer service from both companies.
Works perfectly! the best stethoscope iÃ?Â´ve ever had! Cheap and excelent! I do highly recommend this one!!
item as described; quick shipment, good packaging; 100% satisfied; thanks!
The Cardio III is the standard in general stethoscopes. This is a great price for the product which includes the adult and peds diaphragms and bells. The Black Edition is a great looking touch, and has achieved a kind of cult status thanks the TV show Scrubs. Overall, a great price for a great product. Engraving took 3-4 days, so the time to get the product was longer than I would have liked, but it was worth the wait!
Delivery was good n product was in great condition just like it was described on website, im very happy and look forward to shopping in future.
One of the best quality and best looking stethoscopes. I've had one for over 3 years and still use it everyday at work. I'm an ICU RN and I refuse to use any other type of ""ears"".The only bad thing is the pediatric side bell/diaphragm has a tendency of breaking. Just have to buy some extra replacement parts.
It helps identify heart and lund sounds clearly.
The sound quality is outstanding. It is amazingly light weight.
