Littmann Classic III Vs Littmann Cardiology IV

– Littmann Classic III versus
Littmann Cardiology IV. (kissing sound) (vibrant music) So you can’t decide on
which stethoscope to buy. I’m gonna break it down, go
through all the main aspects and differences and make
your choice really easy. Let’s go. Price, I paid 100 US dollars
for the Littmann Classic III and 180 US dollars for the
Littmann Cardiology IV. Weight, the Classic III weights 158 grams which is five point five ounces, the Cardiology IV weighs 171 grams, which is six ounces. Acoustics, in my detailed
review on stethoscope that I’ve done on both of these stethoscopes
the Classic III got four out of five stars. The Cardiology IV received
five out of five stars, so they’re both really good acoustic, and the reason it got
five, the Cardiology IV, it’s got dual lumen tubing
which is great for acoustics. The Classic II has got
single lumen tubing. Tubing length, the Classic
III is 71 centimeters long which is roughly 27 inches,
and the Cardiology IV is 69 centimeters long which
is also roughly 27 inches. If you hold ’em up
together, you can see that the difference is slight
and the Classic III is just that little big longer. The tubing feel of the Classic
III and the Cardiology IV, as I mentioned in my detailed reviews, a little bit sticky on your neck, gets caught in your neck hairs, but they are essentially,
exactly the same. Spare kit, with the
Classic III you will get a set of soft eartip, a non-chill
rim and a user manual. With the Cardiology IV you
will get a set of soft eartips, a set of hard eartips, a
non-chill rim and a user manual. So essentially just an
extra set of hard eartips with the Cardiology IV. The warranty, Classic III, five years, Cardiology IV, six years. In my detailed reviews that
I have done previously, I do- I give the stethoscopes
a score out of 50 and the Classic III received
a score of 39 out of 50 and the Cardiology IV got a 40 out of 50. So they’re essentially quite similar, but if you are tossing up
between these two stethoscopes, I do recommend you go and check
out those detailed reviews and I’ll put a link for
that in the show notes. So there you have it,
the Littmann Classic III versus the Littmann Cardiology IV. I hope that you can https://firstaidtools.com/best-stethoscope-for-medical-students-reviews/
