Littmann Stethoscopes by 3M
Hear the difference
An internal 3M test showed that heart sounds heard through the adult diaphragm of a 3M™ Littmann® Stethoscope were more than four times louder (20 dB) than the same sounds heard through a different brand of stethoscope*.
That's like the difference between whispering and talking. It could be the critical difference between hearing something significant in a patient, or not hearing it at all.

See the difference
Kinks or bends indicate stiff tubing which can pull on eartips and make the stethoscope hard to use. 3M™ Littmann® Stethoscope tubing hangs straight; it flexes easily as you examine a patient
3M™ Littmann® Stethoscope eartubes are symmetrical for ideal eartip seal and comfort. The headset should be adjustable for individual fit and comfort. The headset tension of all 3M™ Littmann® Stethoscopes is easily adjusted by gently squeezing the eartubes together to increase tension, or pulling them apart to decrease tension.
Feel the difference
Run your fingers over the 3M™ Littmann® Stethoscope snap tight eartips. They're smooth to seal comfortably inside your ears without irritation. Now try to pull one off the eartube. The eartips really do snap tight for maximum acoustic performance and safety. Finally, feel the weight. 3M™ Littmann® Stethoscopes are designed to feel light and comfortable when draped around your neck or carried in a pocket.
