3M Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope
The 3M Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope is designed for clinicians who require outstanding acoustic performance combined with exceptional versatility. Its innovative design provides a tunable diaphragm on each side of the chestpiece.
The 3M Littmann Cardiology III Stethoscope, one of the most recognized stethoscopes in the profession, features tunable diaphragms on both sides to deliver outstanding acoustic performance, diagnostic versatility, and convenience for treating adult and pediatric patients. The pediatric side of the chestpiece converts to a traditional open bell by removing the tunable diaphragm and replacing it with the included non-chill bell sleeve.
Tunable diaphragm technology—a 3M invention—lets clinicians hear different frequency sounds by simply adjusting the pressure on the chestpiece. Hold the chestpiece with light pressure to hear low frequency sounds; press a little more to hear higher frequency sounds. This time-saving feature allows the healthcare provider to focus on the patient, while the non-chill rim provides patient comfort.
Headset tension is easily adjusted for head size and comfort by squeezing together or pulling apart the eartubes. Snap-tight, soft-sealing eartips conform to individual ears for an excellent acoustic seal and comfortable fit. Eartips snap firmly onto the ends of the eartubes and, for safety, require a significant effort to remove.
Resilient next-generation tubing retains its shape and flexibility even after folding tightly into a pocket. It provides longer stethoscope life due to improved resistance to skin oils and alcohol, and is less likely to pick up stains. Next-generation tubing is not made with natural rubber latex, a benefit to sensitive medical professionals and their patients. And, to play its part in the protection of human health and the environment, the next-generation tubing does not contain phthalate plasticizers.
The Cardiology III stethoscope isn’t just for cardiologists. It is used by specialist and general practice physicians, critical care nurses, EMTs, medical students, and other healthcare professionals to identify, listen to, and study cardiac, lung, and other body sounds in adult and pediatric patients. The Cardiology III stethoscope is made in the USA. It comes complete with large and small soft-sealing eartips, large firm eartips, non-chill bell sleeve, and instructions.
3M Littmann Stethoscopes are used by millions of medical professionals around the world who are dedicated to achieving the best patient outcomes. Littmann stethoscopes offer superb acoustic performance, consistently high quality, and outstanding value. Wearing a Littmann stethoscope is an expression of your commitment to medicine, and personal success.

Top Customer Reviews
On the downside, it is rather pricey. But I equate it to buying a good pair of glasses. In exchange for your money, you'll be able to hear a lot more.
I find the soft ear pieces to be comfortable, but it did take a bit of stretching it out in the beginning to keep it from squeezing my head too much. Once it stretched out a bit, the tension has been great and applies just enough pressure to stay in my ears and create a good seal without me feeling like it is burrowing into my head.
Personally, I don't really use the tunable diaphragm. When I first got the stethoscope I attempted to use it and I never got the hang of it. I have an open bell on the smaller side and it works just fine for me.
The downside is that this is an incredibly heavy stethoscope. I can't wear this thing around my neck at all because my neck will start to ache in a short time. I feel like the constant pulling it in and out of my pockets coupled with constantly putting it down every where greatly increases the likelihood of it disappearing and means it is getting far dirtier than if I could just throw it around my neck.
Another feature of this stethoscope that i don't particularly care for is the stickiness of the tubing. I clean it several times a shift, but it always seems to have a tackiness that I don't care for. It is so tacky that it actually picks up lint and stray hair. I contacted Littmann about this and they stated that the material that the stethoscope is somewhat tacky due to the nature of the material.
This is a great stethoscope that has served me well, but am shopping for the Littmann Classic II S.E. as a replacement.
