Thinklabs One Stethoscope
Thinklabs One are supplied with a standard 3.5mm jack so you can connect high quality headphones instead of old tubing style binaurals. The benefits are better sound, more comfort, a more compact stethoscope and freedom to use the head phones of your choice. In-eEar headphones with excellent bass for heart sounds and crystal-clear treble for music enjoyment are supplied in the package.
Designed for high power output, Thinklabs One has dedicated headphone amplifiers,
one for each channel. Voltage doubling charge pumps provide extra headroom for low distortion reproduction of S1 and S2 heartbeat peaks. The headphone amplifiers have sufficient power to drive low-impedance audio headphones, producing 45.2m Watts.
As a comparison, competitive stethoscopes operate on lower voltage, use a single amplifier and high impedance speaker, resulting in clipped heartbeats at significantly lower power output. Thinklabs One allows you to listen with multiple filter choices.
You can also set the two filter choices you most often use, as “favorites” that are super quick to select. So you’ll have both choice and speed. Ranging from very low frequency (low pitched sounds such as S3), to higher frequencies (lung sounds) and a few in between.
Thinklabs One uses a rechargeable Lithium Ion battery so there’s no need to replace batteries. The USB-style charger cable is included, along with compact world-wide AC charger (100-240V). The battery capacity has been designed to require only one or perhaps two charge cycles per week.
Another very nice feature is Thinklink, which provides a connection between Thinklabs One and your mobile or laptop devices to capture and send sounds via iPhone, iPad, Android devices and Mac/PC. You can easily switch between listening to patients or playback recordings. Thinklink is included with One.
