App & Accessory Turn Your iPhone Into A Stethoscope

A new application turns a regular iPhone into an electronic stethoscope with the assistance of the $30 iStetho adapter that connects a modified (read: cut up with a pair of scissors) stethoscope to the iPhone’s microphone. Once it’s connected, the iStethoscope Pro app [App Store, $0.99] “amplifies the signal and eliminates audio outside of what is important for diagnosis.” Naturally, it wouldn’t probably work as a normal stethoscope, and certainly won’t replace them.
