Are there any big differences between the different brands of stethoscopes?

Are there big differences, or only small ones? Littmann Master Cardiology seems very popular, but is it worth the extra money, or is a "regular" one just as good?

Answer:
Unless you're referring to the thickness of the diaphragm, which doesn't differ much across all brands, there's not much of a difference. If you're in need of a high quality stethoscope, pick that one. Otherwise, the "regular" one is just as good as the other "popular" brands.
