Electronic Stethoscope

 

 

 

Stethoscopes are not only useful for doctors, but home mechanics, exterminators, spying and any number of other uses. Standard stethoscopes provide no amplification which limits their use. This circuit uses op-amps to greatly amplify a standard stethoscope, and includes a low pass filter to remove background noise.

Notes:

1. MIC1 is an assembly made out of a stethoscope head and electret mic. Cut the head off the stethoscope and use a small piece of rubber tube to join the nipple on the head to the mic.

2. Be careful with the volume, as excess noise level may damage your ears.

3. The + and - 9V may be supplied by two 9V batteries wired in series and tapped at the junction.

4. R11 is the volume control.
