Instruction Manual (pdf)
The first breastpump with 2-Phase Expression® technology which is proven to achieve faster milk ejection and faster milk flow.*  More efficient and comfortable.  Unique overflow protection.  Double or single pumping.  One knob control.  Whisper quiet operation.  Easy-to-clean.  Compatible with Preemie+ technology (Preemie+ Card sold separately).
 
Featuring the original 2-Phase Expression® technology – found only in Medela breastpumps
 
Babies breastfeed in 2 phases: 
1. Stimulation Phase – when babies first go to breast, they suck fast and light to start milk flowing.

2. Expression Phase – after milk flow or “let-down” starts, babies breastfeed with a slower, deeper suck, bringing out more milk faster.

i rented the symphony with my last 2 children and im planning on renting it again for my 3rd child. I got 2 full bottles in 10mins, its easy to use, quiet, and leaves you with no pain afterward! i recommend it for everyone!

Have no complaints! This pump stimulates and expresses milk! It's great for first time moms, like myself, who just need help getting started as well. I would highly recommend this product. It is quiet, quick, and effective. It expresses enough for me in 10 minutes ( i toggle back b/t stimulation and expression phases to help drain my breasts after my baby feeds). Wish there was a portable one that was this effective and dependable!

My son was rushed to the hospital and admitted immediately there was no time to pack and I was alone so there was no way to get any other pump and I borrowed their Medela Symphany and let me tell you, this is the best pump you will ever use. It's faster than any other pump I've ever used and believe me Ive tried them all. It's quieter than any other pump. It was just like my son when he nurses. It's an amazing product and I wish they made it more affordable and accessible to the public.

When I first began pumping I used a different Hospital Grade pump that I borrowed from the Heath Department. I was told that pump was very effective but was not impressed. I have been using the Pump in Style Advanced now for 2 months and am very VERY happy with it. A few days ago my son was admited into the local childrens hospital, and because of the speed in which we had to be there I did not have time to get my pump from home. The Hospital provided me with the Symphony pump for the short time I was there with my son, and let me tell you I wish that this exact pump was available for home purchase and use. I was faster and easier to use than the current pump I use, and it made the other hospital grade pump look like a hand pump you could have bought at Walmart. I plan on calling the health department where I live and telling them that if they ever have the chance to upgrade their pumps to go with this one.

This is a very good pump, but the tubing has broken on each side for me. I have gone through the unpleasant process of discovering that NO ONE sells the tubing in local stores here, so I have to use electrical tape to do some kind of hack repair today and tomorrow (hope it works) while I'm at work, and hope hope hope that the parts come by the end of day tomorrow. This is not a good situation to be in. Get extra tubing online, it's ten or fifteen dollars and you will be glad.

I purchased this pump for my preemie in 2007. I sent it in for battery service but they never fixed the problem. I called when it came back to me and they told me nothing was wrong although it would not hold a charge. I gave up until 2009 when my twins were born and called again. They told me how long I would be without it (a month) and after how much I paid for it I hate to rent one. It broke again on a vacation without my 7 month daughter (4th child) and they said they would e-mail me what I needed to send it back but they did not. Now I can't send it back until Monday and I work from 8 until 6. Their service and turnaround times plus cost to fix ($350) are discouraging and I am afraid that with the discomfort from my other pump I will stop breastfeeding sooner than I had planned.

We thought we would be getting a reliable product but our harmony pump lasted only 3 months... The plastic piece ended up having a small hole and the vacuum is not working anymore. We followed and used the pump as specified, when trying to contact customer service about the issue, they responded 3 DAYS LATER, with a lame response pointing to their generic shopmedela website... They are selling that plastic piece $20 + Shipping... Really ! Manufacture quality items and stand behind your products... What a shame your company doesn't truly support its customers with a reliable product and service. Extremely disappointed and I sure will spread the bad experience in forums and other community website.
