RE: New ResMed mask line 4-21-14
Regarding the F10, as someone mentioned earlier, the cushions are IDENTICAL to the existing Air product. With the different headgear and frame, can this mask really be that different than a regular Air product?

I'll assume ResMed definitely thinks so. Is that the end of the ResMed Air line then, with the F10 being the replacement?

Regarding with N10, even though I'm a mouth-breather and am told to not even try anything other than a full-face mask, I'm dying to try (maybe literally) either the N10 or the P10 along with a chin strap. Is there any general characteristic in either one that might lead one to try one or the other?

(Feels like we're talking about new Infinity models instead of medical masks.)

I have the Quattro Air currently, and I seem to get leaks right under my eyes. I pull the mask tighter all the time, to the point it gives headaches. It still leaks. With the F10 it looks like it would eliminate these leaks.

I'm to struggling with how the Air and F10 can be that different, given that they have identical cushions. The support in the mid-mask position on the F10 would be an improvement. I've read that some have used their own customized additional mid-level support straps.

On the Air, I even tried putting the upper headgear straps in the space between the frame and the cushion. So the straps would be on the upper part of the Air cushion rather than high up on the forehead. This is the obvious major change in the F10. I found that gave it a mid-level support. My Air is just too big so I imagine that's my main source of leaks. I wonder too if many might eliminate leaks by just getting a smaller mask.

Regarding the new N10, compared to the Swift FX Nano, the main difference also seems to be related to additional strap support.

Is it possible ResMed realized the leaking that most users were having with the Air and Swift FX Nano that they redesigned new headgear supports for them and gave them new names? It's crummy for existing users that they'd have to spend another $100-150 for getting a little more headgear strap support. I suppose existing Air cushion users can carry over their existing supply of Air cushions to the F10.

While on the subject of headgear support, maybe ResMed will also redesign the headgear support for the P10 to make it more user adjustable.

I'm interested in the F10. I've looked at the headgear design and think it'll be a big improvement over most current masks. After a few more positive reports I'll probably order it and see how it stacks up to the Simplus I'm currently using.

I switched from the Swift FX to the AirFit P10. Absolutely love it. Closest thing there is to not having a mask at all. My only question is the durability of the head gear. So far no problem but it's lightweight and need to last at least three months before my insurance will pay for another one.

I am interested in the N10 as currently I use a Mirage FX which is working well. Has anybody tried the new N10 yet?

RE: New ResMed mask line 4-21-14
I'm trying out the F10 right now as I haven't been getting along with my nasal pillows and I need a backup FFM anyway. Slept really well. Honestly I'm not sure if it's because the mask is comfortable (for a FFM, it is, anyway) or because I turned auto back on and turned my starting pressure way down so the leaks around the bridge of my nose don't bother me when I'm going to sleep. This allowed me to loosen the top straps enough that the mask was comfortable to wear.

My leak numbers were absolutely superb and I slept well. Will post a review after a week or so.
