    The 3M™ Littmann® Master Classic II™ Stethoscope brings together award-winning ergonomic design and excellent acoustic sensitivity. It delivers reliable performance and comfortable use to professionals dedicated to providing the best patient care.

    The 3M™ Littmann® Master Classic II™ Stethoscope combines the reliable, versatile acoustic performance of tunable diaphragm technology with the portable convenience of a single-sided chestpiece. The Master Classic II stethoscope is used by students and medical professionals alike to detect, listen to, and study heart, lung, and other body sounds for physical assessment and diagnosis.

    Tunable diaphragm technology—a 3M invention—lets clinicians hear different frequency sounds by simply adjusting the pressure on the chestpiece. Unlike two-sided models, there’s no need to turn over and reposition 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 Master Classic II stethoscope is made in the USA for consistent quality. It comes complete with large soft-sealing eartips, large firm eartips, and instructions.

    Suggested Applications

    • Used as a diagnostic tool as part of the physical assessment of cardiac; adult and pediatric patients. Ideally suited for certified nursing assistants; EMTs; entry level nurse; licensed vocational nurse; medical assistants; nursing students and registered nurses
    Customer Reviews
    3M™ Littmann® Master Classic II™ Stethoscope is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 26.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Durable! I bought my MC-II in 1998 as a gift to myself after EMT school, since I knew I would be advancing. Despite one close call when a coworker tried going home with it, I still use it daily on an ambulance. It has been accidentally slammed in ambulance doors, left in my personal vehicle on extremely cold and hot days, and generally treated worse than it should probably have been. The ONLY thing I have EVER replaced is the diaphragm, and only because I got carried away cleaning it one day. Years of full-time EMS later, I now have hearing issues. This is the only stethoscope I can appropriately hear with that I've tried. I'm preparing to purchase one as a medic school graduation gift for my work partner as I type!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Long lasting I purchased this in 2005 and still using it today. It's awesome I'm a Firefighter/EMT using it daily. Very impressed with it still going strong.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best scope for the price I am a nursing student and do not have very good hearing. This stethoscope has very good acoustics and I can hear plainly.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for veterinary medicine and vet anesthesia My old Tyco (25-plus years) was getting a little worn out, so I knew I needed a good stethoscope. The reason I didn't buy Litmann years ago was because the tube would end up breaking or cracked in the center. I saw to many taped scopes. I just tried the new Classic 2 I purchased and I am THRILLED with the quality of the acoustics. The only reason I did not choose the Master Cardiology is because the head is to big to use on kittens, some puppies and wildlife. I honestly believe it is just as good as the Cardiology 3 or Master Cardiology. Oh by the way vets and vet students, the 27 inch is perfectly fine for use in small and large animal veterinary medicine. If you primarily practice Equine medicine, then I would consider the vet scope, but the master Classic 2 is AWESOME!!!!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for Nursing Students This is my second stethoscope, My first stethoscope was a hand me down and I figured they are all made the same... NOPE! The Master Classic 2 is an excellent stethoscope to discern different heart and lung sounds. With my old stethoscope it was difficult to detect fine lung sounds like fine crackles. Heart sounds are extremely clear with the adjustable tuning diaphragm. Dollar for dollar this stethoscope is worth the money.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Topnotch Quality and Worth buying As a paramedic student, I only use the finest and excellent brand of stethoscope I can find in the medical shop. I am looking for its accuracy, effectiveness and brand we could trust. This Master Classic II Black Edition is at its perfectly made and top grade design. Suitable for my fellow EMT/EMS and Paramedics.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome stethoscope!! As a Cardiopulmonary student I needed a better stethoscope than what we got with our equipment bag, the stethoscope we got was garbage. The Black Edition not only looks nice but it works great! Can't wait for next clinical go round!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from It is perfect for medical students It is useful and you can hear heart and lung sounds very well, of course not as accurate as you would do using a Cardiology III stethoscope but it is fine for a medical student. For Cardiology or Anestesiology invest in something better.
