This wiki has been updated 5 times since it was first published in October of 2018. As a healthcare professional, you’ll be able to perform auscultation more effectively with an electronic stethoscope, which converts acoustic sounds into electrical signals. It amplifies these for optimal listening and reduces background noises to help you reach your diagnosis. Several of the models on our list can send data to your smartphone for further analysis, storage, and playback. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki. Skip to the best electronic stethoscope on Amazon.

Editor's Notes

November 14, 2018:

While electronic stethoscopes may seem geared toward specialists like cardiologists, they are also used commonly enough by general physicians and nurses, thanks to their superior sound quality and ability to send data to one’s smartphone. Prices for the models on our list range up and down by several hundred dollars, with the top choice from Littmann, a widely undisputed leader in creating stethoscopes.
