Dear dr_shadow,

this is a medical forum and we are here to answer urgent medical questions, I suggest that you turn somewhere else to not take up our precious time.

Dear Dr Shadow, I have used Littman for years and have found it is worth your while to spend the extra money to get the top of the line. I currently use Littman Cardiology and I hear so much better. Hope this helps and good luck with your studies.

I really like the Littman on the ambulance. It's hard to hear anything with the sirens going, the patient moaning or crying, people talking and the road noise rumbling through the floor but the Littman would come through for me. Nice lung sounds, good heart tones, good B/P's, I could hear wonderfully well when the place was quiet. Littman is my choice too. Only one problem I found with them, they grow legs real fast. You will need to figure out a way to mark it so it won't be taken. Keep your eyes open, you'll see interesting ways people have thought up to mark their "ears".
