    The 3M™ Littmann® Classic II S.E. Stethoscope is a dependable, hard working clinical tool for physical assessment and monitoring of your patients. It’s the choice of millions of care providers who are dedicated to achieving the best patient outcomes.

    The 3M™ Littmann® Classic II S.E. Stethoscope is a true clinical workhorse, providing high acoustic sensitivity through its dual-sided, stainless steel chestpiece; with a tunable diaphragm on one side and traditional bell on the other. The Classic II S.E. stethoscope is used by students and medical professionals alike to identify, 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. 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 Classic II S.E. 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 aid as part of the physical assessment of a patient. Ideally suited for certified nursing assistants, medical assistants, physician assistants, registered nurses, entry level nurses, EMTs, licensed vocational nurses and nursing students

    3M™ Littmann® Classic II S.E. Stethoscope, Black Tube, 28 inch, 2201 is rated 3.5 out of 5 by 28.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from customer service is amazing I have used my 3M classic ii se since I started my Medical Assisting career. It never let me down. I just noticed that I could not hear my patients blood pressure and that is when I noticed the tear in the tubing. I immediately contacted Littman and they are going to fix it for me. I am so happy that I get to keep using my Littman!

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from poor quality I bought mine less than two years ago and the tubing has cracked in half already. It was never squished into a bag for transport, stored flat on desk in between use. I expect better for the expense.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Didn't even last 4 years I have had this stethoscope for less than 4 years, and the tubing has cracked wide open, rendering it useless. I have seen several reviews like this, many with responses from Littmann saying that the tubing will harden and crack when exposed to skin oils. Considering that the vast majority of nurses keep their stethoscopes around their necks while they're working (where else are we supposed to put them?), it seems to me that this a pretty significant design flaw. It also seems to be a recent design flaw, as many other reviewers report having theirs last for 10+ years.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very dissapointed in quality I bought this in nursing school in early 2014 and I am noticing that the tube is cracked. I am appaled that other peoples have lasted so long and that even though littmann knows that it cracks they keep a short waranty on it so I have to buy a new one. They are very expensive and I thought when I bought littman that I was buying a quality product that would last me longer than 4 years. But of course the waranty was expired last year right before it began to crack. Very dissapointed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Have had for 14 years and counting I got this for a gift and have used it for 14 years with no problems. I have replaced ear buds over the years but that’s it as far as maintenance. I have to replace the tubing now, only because someone ran over it with a bed wheel and got it stuck. It has a small crack in tubing. If that’s all I can say after 14 years, will always choose Littmann!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for prehospital setting I work as a paramedic and have had this stethoscope for 5 years now. This thing has taken a real beating over the years (including being ran over by a car) and still works as well as the day I got it. If you need something durable and reliable, this stethoscope is the way to go

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This scope takes a beating and still works perfect I bought this stethoscope in 2004 when I was 10 years into my career as an EMT. It was actually the second one that I had; sadly the first one was stolen or lost. Now I am approaching the 24 year mark in my career as an EMT and it still works perfectly after being dropped too many times to count, stepped on, etc. It is a true workhorse and I would recommend it to anyone. I just purchased a Littmann Classic III because I am just looking for a change in tubing color. I am not getting rid of my older one, just adding a new one to my equipment. I expect nothing less than the same level of performance from this product as well. Thanks!!!
