I have found a website that has the littman stethescopes the cheapest i have seen anywehere. I was looking for the Littman Cardiac II but i am wondering, if they are so inepxensive should I pay a little more for the cardiac STC or the Cardiac Master? is the sound improvement really that much better?

I have a Littman III and think it works great. That's what I see most people around the hospital carrying around.

Everybody in my class that I've seen has the Littman Cardiology III, as do most of the residents and attendings. It's the best value overall, has both pediatric and adult diaphragms, and is everything you need as a med student. No need to spend any more money.

I have the cardiology III, which I bought from allheart.com. Littman offered a free learning CD of heart sounds, too, with purchase of the steth. My mom really wanted to get it for me for sentimental reasons--so of COURSE I accomodated her! :)

HEINE is a good one ( German) but difficult to get service in rural area in the US if you need a new diaphragm etc.
