My doppler died a few weeks ago, and I am looking for a new one. Anyone have any suggestions on brands and/or online stores that sell dopplers? I bought my last one on Ebay, and I won't do that again. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/irked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="irked">:<br><br>
TIA for your input.

well, I used to be a huge Huntleigh fan, but my case broke easily after having it for 2 years. I have heard from other mws that they are seeing this happen alot, too, with Huntleighs.<br><br>
There are a few newer dopplers advertised in Midwifery Today - I just got a Sonicaid from the UK that I like. The audio quality isn't as great as the Hunteligh (if there's too much gel it gets staticy), but I really like it alot.<br><br>
IMEX makes great dopplers, their Elite dopplers are good, but a bit tinny in the sound. They are solid units, though, and last.

I didn't do too bad with the one I got on ebay-- I got mine from stork radio and had a warrantee<br>
before that I had a sonicaid and I really love that doppler well sealed and doesn't break easily.<br>
Have worked with someone else's huntleigh and it was broken and for something "water proof" it was very cheaply/poorly sealed

I recently got a thing in the mail from Cascade that actually advertised a doppler sale... here is their site, they do doppler rentals too if that interests you.<br><br><a href="http://www.1cascade.com" target="_blank">http://www.1cascade.com</a><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Thanks for the link! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up"> I am still shopping around, but Cascade does offer several different brands and models, and I liked their comparison chart.<br><br>
I wish that I had gotten a warrantee with my doppler that I bought on Ebay, but I bought it from an individual and it was very staticy from the get-go, and then it just stopped working a few weeks ago. If I'm going to have to drop that much money on another one, I think I'll just buy one new one that is guaranteed to work.<br><br>
Pam, what model of the Sonicaid do you have and do you have a link to the supplier that you bought it from? Thanks again!

I have a huntleigh and I don't think that I would ever buy anything else. The sound quality is so far superior to anything else that I've ever heard before (we practiced with quite a few kinds in school). It may be different for others though I have a steadily worsening hearing loss in my left ear so for it to be as clear as possible is really important for me.

I have this one: <a href="http://www.cascadedopplers.com/nicolet_dopplers/nicolet_caredop_fetal_doppler/" target="_blank">CareDop</a> with the 3MHz probe and it rocks. I have used several types but mine is my favorite. It's super sensitive, I found my own baby's fht at just 7.5 weeks. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
