ERKA Precise Stethoscope —New!

A premium stethoscope engineered and handcrafted in Germany featuring a dual-head brass chestpiece that can be used for auscultation of both higher and lower frequencies in all specialties. Providing outstanding sound transmission, the outside rim and hard plastic diaphragm protects the highly sensitive internal copper-beryllium diaphragm - and the space between them has been carefully calibrated to provide extra resonance for pre-amplification. Excellent for providing a confident diagnosis. Highly glossy polish and chrome plating with no open micropores.

I really liked this product. In particular, I liked how durable it felt. It was heavy, and I like that in a stethoscope. The tubing was a fun color also. In terms of auscultation, I felt that it was very sensitive and definitely up to par with my Littmann master cardiology.
