    3M™ Littmann® Cardiology IV™ Diagnostic Stethoscope is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 24.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great at first, poor quality I’ve had this stethoscope for about 2 years, and when I first got the stethoscope, it worked terrific, better than any stethoscope I’ve had! But nowthe tubing is cracking, which I’ve never happened in other Lithmann stethoscopes (I had the lightweight one for years before getting this one). Also, within 6 months to a year, both the pediatric and the adult diaphragms fell off and no where to be found.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great acoustics and great after service. First of all, I want to say that as an ER physician, I use this with great confidence. The acoustics are second to none, for me. You also have both the ease of switching from adult and pediatric patients in a flash. I am only writing this review because many people who wrote negative reviews only talk about problems that I think can often be normal wear and tear--forgetting about the actual high quality of sound you get. I lost my diaphragm finally, contacted them, and got a replacement in a flash. The nature of the stethoscope is that if you use it a lot, it is bound to happen. The thing is that the company will not hesitate to help you out if you finally do have a problem. So, I can recommend this highly for both the quality and the service. In fact, I just bought my second one pictured here--with blue tubing, no less.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Diaphragm fell off and no certified replacement I bought this a few months ago and even though expensive considered it an investment in my training. But now smaller diaphragm fell off and been searching for a replacement to no avail. No place to get one, stethoscope is useless without it

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Diaphragm has fallen apart I have used this stethoscope in the emergency department for about one year and the large diaphragm has cracked and falls off almost every time I use the stethoscope. I do not recommend this stethoscope to others.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for my day to day Resident in IM/Peds, so the dual heads saves me from having to carry both my pediatric and adult steths on service. I particularly appreciate the crystal clear sound I get from this stethoscope and of course like the long wearability of the ear pieces (much more comfortable than most competitors'). My only complaint is that my diaphragm fell off somewhere, though customer support was quick and responsive, and has got a replacement part in the mail to me free of charge. In all, well worth every penny I spent on it. Compared to my old classic II, my new cardiology 4 offers superior acoustic quality.

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cardiology stethoscope black chest piece finish I bought this stethoscope a week ago and noticed a small crack on the chest piece, I was very disappointed because I purchased the stethoscope for £180.59 as I expected a high quality product from Littmann.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hmmm poor diaphragm design Diaphragm keeps falling off , I lost 2 so far . poor design , Littmann should provide us all owners with new improved diaphragms

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Diaphragm fell off! I bought this stethoscope over a year ago. Was happy with the product initially, however I did note that the diaphragm was a little loose at first. Didn't think much of it at that time, until the day it fell off completely. Was not able to find it anywhere. Truly disappointed as I expected Littmann to produce quality products. I've noticed mine was not an isolated experience, as a colleague of mine had a similar problem and noted a few similar reviews online. Anyway, I've just sent my stethoscope as it is covered under warranty. A bit of an inconvenience as I have to rely on someone else's stethoscope at work, until I get mine back hopefully soon. Would appreciate if Littmanns could look into this so it doesn't occur again in future.
