(Question) Is cheap stethoscope worth it?

I found the real 3M's Littmann Stethoscope shown on local online store. they starts from Rp. 1 million. it converts to around $72 as of today.
the Littmann Cardiology Master is around Rp. 2 million which is $143 as of today. 3 feb 2019.
and Littmann Classic III is Rp. 1,2 million. $86 as of today.

Ah! any price that touches from Rp. 900 thousand is expensive!

then I found cheap stethoscope I have no idea what quality is.

Do I have to concern reputation for these cheap stethoscope.

for me, steth is no fun without known reputation one like 3M Littmann.

any opinion? is cheap stethoscope worth it?

Ikr, should be careful.

I checked Shopee.com btw if you wonder where do I was looking for.
also there is Tokopedia, Bukalapak, Lazada, etc.
Amazon is ignored because Amazon did not localized to Indonesia. So they are way too expensive.

Re: (Question) Is cheap stethoscope worth it?

It depends on what you are using it for. If you just plan on sharing with it, and not listening to yourself/someone else with it - cheap is okay.

Littmanns are nice, but I actually enjoy Welch-Allyn stethoscopes more.

However, $143 for a Master Cardiology is a good deal. They are normally quite a bit higher - like $160 or $170.

An ADC is a very economical stethoscope for what you get. I have one that on par acoustically with my Littman Classic II. It is half the price of a Littman. Highly recommend.

Also second this. I think 3M makes stethoscopes for ADC, or vice-versa - as they're very similar in build and design.
