i am trying to find a stethoscope that will be patient (esp peds) friendly and will work with a BTE hearing aid. i have a 50dB loss in my L ear, and my R ear is totally nl. i have looked into the E-scope, but am wondering about how good it is in terms of durability and sound quality (in comparison to say, a littman). i REALLY do not want to use the 80s style headphones; i prefer the direct-audio-input because it looks much more streamlined. i have never worn a ha, so a new stethoscope and a hearing aid is a little daunting change all at once. any suggestions?
