A10 Elite Seems Way Louder After 60 Day
#1
When I first got it, I remember I couldn't really hear it running. Now I hear an audible blower sound, and also an amplified breathing sound on top of the blower noise.

Is it me or is anyone else noticing this volume jump?

There was another thread on this and yes I have noticed it after 30 days. I don't know why. I replaced the filter and no change. It's still way quieter and cooler than the oxygen concentrator I was using. I ended up moving that thing into another room and run a 50' tube into the bedroom. Way too noisy, way to hot. Thankfully I don't have to use it anymore now that I have cpap.


Using FlashAir W-03 SD card in machine. Access through wifi with FlashPAP or Sleep Master utilities.

I wanted to learn Binary so I enrolled in Binary 101. I seemed to have missed the first four courses. Big Grinnie

Hi player,
Since your machine is still pretty new, you might talk to your DME to see if you could get it exchanged.
Hang in there and good luck.

Hey Player, did you have a different machine before? An alternative is that your hearing may be more sensitive now to the tone of the unit. By all means take it in to the DME. But I want to mention ears can play tricks. Like when the radio volume in the car is fine when you get out, but the next morning is really loud.

I am wondering about this, but I am leaning towards it being louder... I have good hearing, and when I first got it I would lie in bed in the middle of the night and had a hard time hearing it. Now it is obvious with the 2 sounds layered.
