beautiful smoke finish!
order was processed very fast, shipped out in 2 days and i chose the super saver shipping method which was actually 1 day priority mail via usps. since i ordered during the busy black friday week, delivery was delayed and i got the stethoscope 2 days later than what was expected but that was not medisave's problem. the stethoscope i got was the cardiology III in smoke edition with engraving! the engraving looks great! i shopped around sites for price comparision and medisave was the cheapest place for me to get this steth with the engraving. i also love how the engraving is done in same orientation unlike other places where it's upside down.

Great Color, Fantastic Service
Beautiful color. The black tubing keeps it conservative since many have the black stethoscope but the smoke finish gives it a subtle distinction that will help you tell it apart from the very popular black tubing/metal finish and black tubing/black finish. The engraving is done in the same gold color as the Littmann product information on the head and with the same orientation (some companies do it upside down, maybe a little OCD but that drives me nuts). It looks like it was always supposed to be there, really great job engraving by Medisave.

Aside from the product itself, Medisave customer service was FANTASTIC. Any questions, request, etc. are addressed by them immediately and they clearly strive to make you happy. I procrastinated in ordering my stethoscope (I couldn't decide on the color) but once I did, they shipped it ASAP and I had it in hand, engraving and all, the next day. I couldn't be happier!

Their pricing is also the best I've come across. They beat my bookstore's price (and the bookstore doesn't engrave) as well as the other online sellers. It's all win-win here.

Great looking steth for a phenomenal price!
I was excited to find this website still had the smoke finish in stock, but I was even more exited to see that Medisave had this scope for less than other sites and even included laser engraving! It goes without saying that the scope I bought from Amazon was quickly returned. THANKS MEDISAVE! :D

Superb Acoustics
I have been using the Littmann Cardiology III for sometime now, and I say it has impressive clarity. Almost all heart, lung and abdominal sounds are audible through this scope. Would love to try the Welch Allyn Harvey DLX or Elite and see hw they compare to this masterpiece!

The Littmann Cardiology III A Must Have!!!
I purchased a Littmann Cardiology III about ten years ago for paramedic school I bought it not knowing what I was buying and just went off a friends advice. Recently I purchased a Littmann Master Cardiology what a great stethoscope too, sound quality is very clear just lick the Cardiology III. However, I still prefer the Cardiology III over the Master Cardiology because the Cardiology III is more versatile for the emergency setting whether out-of-hospital or in the emergency department. It is more versatile because of the adult and pediatric chest pieces and the tunable-diaphragms. The Cardiology III also has the option to turn the pediatric chest piece into a bell for low-frequencies. For high-frequencies press firmly (lung sounds) low-frequencies press lightly (heart sounds). You will not go wrong buying the Littmann Cardiology III what an excellent product!

Extremely happy! Top level customer service
I ordered the Littmann Cardiology III smoke finish. The product is incredible quality. I'm very happy that Littmann made the smoke finish, I think it's the nicest color, sleek yet nicely understated.

The customer service at Medisave was an extremely pleasant experience. They were very patient on the phone and were very friendly. It was an absolute pleasure dealing with this company and would recommend them to anyone looking for great quality, price and customer service.

I ordered the Cardiology II smoke finish stethoscope with the free engraving and received it after 6 days (ground shipping). The stethoscope looks sleek and professional and picks up both heart and lung sounds beautifully. They did a great job with the free engraving as well! Very happy with my purchase and would recommend this stethoscope to others.
