Find your ideal stethoscope.

  • A stethoscope is one of the first things you buy as you begin clinical training. But which one? When you’re shopping for a stethoscope, there’s no substitute for trying out different stethoscopes.

A few things to consider

  • Acoustic
    Acoustic quality

    Try listening for your heartbeat. How do your choices compare?

  • Lightweight
    Light weight

    Littmann stethoscopes are consistently some of the lightest stethoscopes in the medical profession.

  • Fit

    Is it anatomically correct?

  • Feel

    Run your hand over the stethoscope. Do all the parts fit together smoothly?

  • Tubing

    Is it soft and flexible?

  • Eartubes

    Do the eartips fit snugly?

Begin with the best.

  • Every Littmann stethoscope delivers profession-leading innovations, engineering, advanced materials, precise manufacturing – and a high level of consistent quality that other brands just can’t seem to duplicate.

Recommended for students.

We recommend two Littmann stethoscope models for students looking for a high-quality, reliable stethoscope that gives you the advantage of excellent acoustics. Both feature the versatility of a two-sided chestpiece — one side sized for adults and one sized for paediatrics that can be converted to an open bell.
