Stemoscope - Listen to the Sound of Life
Stethoscope redefined. The Stemoscope lets you discover the sounds of life. You can record and share these sounds at ease and use them for STEM education, recreation and many other purposes.
Many sounds of life awaits your discovery
Traditional stethoscopes are used by medical doctors for auscultation - listening to the sounds of the body for medical diagnosis. The Stemoscope , on the other hand, can let us experience a lot more: we are surrounded by tons of internal rhythms coming from the human body, animals and plants, but seldomly notice them. Tune into these rhythms today with the Stemoscope and delight yourself with many surprises.
Truly wireless listening experience
Stemoscope transmits the sounds to the smartphone via Bluetooth. The phone processes and amplifies the sounds and sends them to Bluetooth earphones, Bluetooth hearing aids or wired earphones, in real time.
Let’s listen to some sample sounds in the introduction video
Sounds of life have many bass (low pitch/frequency) components, and the typical smartphone speaker is not good at playing them. To ensure the best listening experience, we recommend you to use your EARPHONES or HEADSET 🎧.
Featured in media all over the world
The Stemoscope is sensitive enough to pick up more pronounced sounds fairly clearly – especially for educational purposes that do not require extensive distinguishing of more subtle heart sounds.

Stemoscope in Action - Video Review
The Stemoscope is fully complementary to a stethoscope. Iconic classic stethoscopes are still preferred the most by doctors to do diagnosis and treatment of the disease in their daily practice. On the contrary, the Stemoscope can be ideally used for non-diagnostic or non-treatment purposes, such as education, training and sharing of some interesting auscultatory sounds where applicable. Instead of replacing a classic stethoscope with a digital stethoscope, many doctors choose to get a stethoscope plus a Stemoscope.
"When you hear something cool and you want to record it. You want to have another personal listen to it or if you're doing teaching with medical students. How great would this be? Just put it there and everybody gets to listen as you record the sound."
- Dr. Carlo Oller, board certified emergency physician in US
"I wholeheartedly recommend it. I think it's a great product. I'm really impressed. It's rare that Kickstarter's kind of deliver on everything that they promise but credit to Stemoscope. I think they've really followed through with this one."
- Ollie Burton, 2nd year medical student of University of Newcastle, UK
"Have to say one of the most impressive features of the stemoscope is the quality of the sound..."
- Dr. Norah Sadek from Australia. She reviewed Stemoscope and compared it with Littmann Electronic Stethoscope 3200. She recorded two pieces of audio with Stemoscope and the 3200 respectively. Which one sounds better?
One device, many free Apps
Besides the "Stemoscope" App is designed for general applications, the "BabyStemo" App is designed for expecting and new moms to listen to their babies' heartbeat and soothe their newborns, and the "PetStemo" App is designed for pet owners and vets to monitor their pets' health and enjoy their pets' soothing sounds. All the Apps are free and available for both iOS and Android. More Apps are on the way....

Record your “womb sound” for your baby
According to scientific research, babies are soothed by the sound of their mother’s heartbeat while in the womb. This effect continues after birth. With Stemoscope, a mother can record her heartbeat and play it back to her baby, helping to calm, quiet and relax her little one.
