I got this stethoscope and there were no scratches on the binaurals, the tubing is really clean,it has no marks on it which is really good, a really big plus for me. The chest piece is turn able-which is really good. I always look for that in a stethoscope. The chest piece has got this really cool rainbow finish to it which is really pretty.
And the chest piece comes with both a diaphragm on the pediatric side and the adult side. If you want to, the pediatric side can turn in to an open bell. And the ear tips pull off and push on. It's really good, I don't like the screw-ons that much 'cause they can screw off and you lose them at work.
But these ones are not loose at all so they're not gonna just fall off at any time, you actually have to put a bit of force on it. So that's really good stethoscope. It's a really nice stethoscope design and I've given it a five out of five. Spare kit.
So when I bought this Littmann Classic III, I got an extra set of small ear tips, which are also as nice and soft as the ones that come on the stethoscope. So you can choose which ones you prefer for your ears.
And you will get a non-chill rim that you can put on to the pediatric side if you want to turn it into an open bell.
