You will most likely get used to the noise after a while. Right now, it is all new and the noise is far too loud to you. I see it as a built in white noise machine.
The Breeze, wow, it is a great mask and I love it but, wow. Freakin' cyclone coming out of that vent. If nothing was in front of it, it was mostly silent. But if anything was within a few feet of it, there was a freight train in the bedroom.
I actually like the vent air in the summer. I often sleep with my wrist in the exhaust in an effort to keep cool.

I've been using Activa LT nasal mask for the last 4 years, an old fashioned type mask, bulky mask with forehead support
Its the most comfortable mask with good seal tried so far and I would not trade it for any other mask ... ymmv
Flexible light cushion and extremely quiet vents is the best part
I used 'nasal' masks for years and years, so I bought 5-6 spares in case they changed them in any way (they did, and broke it in my book) - anyhow, ever since realizing my therapy is much better with a Full Face mask (FFM), I have been searching and trying them all, and have yet to find one I am happy with for more than a few nights at a time.
My point being; whether you are brand new to being a hose-head, or have many years of practice, finding a mask you like is both hard and a pain.
