Differences in Acoustics

There are many factors that contribute to acoustic response, such as a complete seal from the point of auscultation to the stethoscope user's ear canal.

Our laboratory results do not include factors like ambient noise, motion artifact, and ear canal seal. Because of these variables and differences in each individual's hearing ability, we recommend trying different stethoscope models before purchasing.
