I am using this mask as well as a F&P Simplus full face mask and I love both. Very easy to clean and seal like no others. The Eson can be worn so loose and its unbelievable that it doesn't leak . I hate chin straps so decided to switch to the Simplus but I will always have both for a change of pace.
Does anyone know how often you are supposed to change the filter in the diffuser?
After using a Ultra Mirage II Nasal mask for about 4/5 years I used the F&P Eson mask last night and was pleasantly surprised. I tend to move around a lot and when sleeping on my side I had to get everything just right or my old mask would leak. The Eson provided an almost natural sleep experience with no tugging or pulling by the hose...well as natural as one can get with a mask strapped to your face. It took a couple trys to get the adjustment just right but once I had it dialed in it was extremely comfortable and I went all night without any obvious leaks.
Big improvement over my Mirage II.

I"m now 40+ days into therapy and I've used two masks, the Eson and the Pilairo.
The Eson is consistently great in terms of side sleeping (I toss and turn a lot). It's very effective with use of a "Hose Buddy" with the hose floating over my head. It's very easy to clean, whether one soaks it or uses the cpap cleaning wipes (as I do).
I have (and have tested for one week) the Pilairo nose cushions mask and have really mixed feelings about it. Lighter on the face as opposed to Eson (which isn't heavy at all) but doesn't stay put when my face smashes into the pillow (side sleeping). Also, the short hose, swivel at the front of the Pilairo does not move around as freely as with the Eson, causing more inconvenient mask tugging (even with the Hose Buddy).
So for now, I'm sticking with the Eson, which is allowing me to achieve an average AHI of just under 1.0 (untreated AHI is 65).
WELCOME! to the forum.!
It's GREAT to hear that you have found the mask that works well for you.
Best of luck to you with your CPAP therapy.
What is the diameter of the hose that goes with this? Is it a smaller hose or same size as the hose from the machine?
