Well build, but hurts your ears – Professional Home Stethoscope Reviews

posted by Reddog33 on 04/22/2012 Certified Owner

Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 week to 1 month

Pros:
Well build an made of metal. Not like party versions which are made of plastic. Amplification is good enough for listening to; machines, babies, your hart.
Cons:
The cap on the top is quite small, which most of the time you will hear the crunching of your fingers instead of the thing you where listening at. Earplugs are quite solid which hurt your ears when using it for more than 5 minutes. Noice levels an amplification might not be good enough to listen to your lungs (to check coughs).
Other:
If the top of the cap would be made a different shape, holding it produce less sound noise. The ear caps either need to be made a bit larger of softer to be worn more comfortable
Bottomline:
Nice product, wouldn't use it for day to day medical care, but is sufficient for other uses.
