Q&A: What’s a great stethoscope for med-surg RN re-entering workforce?

Question by samiracat: What’s a great stethoscope for med-surg RN re-entering workforce?
Used Littman lightweight model, with tubing cut down to increase sound sensitivity. But I’ve been out of the workforce for a few years, and can use a “better” scope to help out these middle-aged rock-and-roll ears…..Assessing bowel, breath, and routine run-of-the-mill heart sounds; nothing extraordinary.

Am not a candidate for a hearing aid (YET–smile) and hadn’t PLANNED on a cardiology-class or battery-amplified ‘scope.

What experiences have y’all had with things like the Ultrascope or other “noisy environment”/”good through clothing” scopes? (They seem to typically be single-headed and pressure-sensitive.)

Price is not big issue—just want to get the “best value” for $ 100 USD or so. Any EMTs, paramedics out there?

I am a Littman fan through and through. You can’t beat the quality. I have issues with hearing and the classic works well.
