I was surprised to see others that also feel their Airsense 10 Elite is noisy. I made the decision to buy locally to get manufacturer support.
I picked mine up last Friday and was really surprised at how noisy my breathing is through the machine. I took it back to the supplier on Monday and the 'CPAP Therapy Consultant' at first agreed that it was overly loud, but when they could find nothing obviously wrong decided that it was caused by the 'high' pressure (12cm H20??) that it was set at.
This is my first CPAP machine so I took them at their word.
Definitely 'Not happy, Jan'
So looks like it is either breathe really softly or go the earplug route

I agree. It really doesn't make sense that ResMed would completely ignore the amplified breathing noise that this machine puts out. I'm wondering if it is the combination of the mask I'm using with the machine or the diametre of the hose since a few others on here don't hear a thing.

I would not consider 12 cm/H2O to be high pressure. Is it higher than 4? I would have to say yes but then 4 is as low as the machine will go.Going by memory (keep in mind that I am an old fart) it seems to me that 12 cm/H2O is on the low side of the middle ground for people on this forum. I would not back off. As was recommended elsewhere on this forum, I would take the machine in to the DME and have them compare it to another machine they have on hand for sound pressure.

Best Regards,
