    The only complaint that I have about this stethoscope is that it sometimes feels heavy. It does not "wrap" easily around my neck as I see others do; however, I am able to fold it up very easily and put it in my pocket. I love not having to make sure I have the correct bell/diaphragm open! I really like this stethoscope.

    I've got this stethoscope and I love it! I haven't had a problem with putting it around my neck. When I ordered it I had my name monogrammed on the tubing...just in case it decides to walk off!

    I am a CNA and if I was working I probability not take it to work because I would not want it stolen. I have an old god maybe 15 or 16 and I try to do what I can to train my mind to listen for heart beats I can hear it and loud with this one. Its one is awesome...cannot wait to use it on people. The single baffle is great. I can hear sounds this this then I can with my 30.00 Littmann

    Spent $89 at for the all-black package.

    This is my second. The first was stolen after a person I lent it to set it down. THIS one will have to be pried from my cold, dead fingers!

    Seriously though... you just can't beat this pair of "ears" for the price

    This is a good "hearing" scope. It doesn't pick up a lot of ambiet noise. It has held up well for me. It does fold nicely and I keep mine in my thigh pocket of my scrup pants. Much better than the scopes we had at school, the Classic II.

    I have had this stethescope since I started nursing school. I like that it has a combined bell/diaphragm, so that I don't have to worry about rotating from bell -> diaphragm. It's well-built, and I've never had any problems with it, though sometimes I wish that it'd lay a bit more nicely around my neck, without twisting.
