I went to nursing school and the best stethoscope that I used is Lynford. They told me at the nursing supplies store that Lynford is a good brand for a stethoscope, doctors use it a lot, and they want students who are in the medical profession to use it as well. I have used Lynford throughout my nursing career and I have also used a stethoscope that had no brand name on it. It was just a stethoscope with stripes and it worked out just fine.

Just make sure to get the appropriate application model (ie: Peds, Infant, Cardio, or more general).

Thus I was thinking about one from these single head stethoscopes.
