Resmed N10 vs Respironics Wisp...?
#1
I have been using the Wisp, and thinking about getting the N10. Is is as good, better or worse?

I started with the N10, and changed over to the Wisp. I found that the N10 allowed air to blow off the sides of my nose and into my eyes, which was very uncomfortable. The Wisp has a double wall along the sides which prevents that leakage. Otherwise they seem to be quite similar, as far as I can tell.
Oh, except that the magnets on the N10 drove me crazy getting stuck to themselves and anything else magnetic around me.

Do you mean it was leaking?

Yep, and it felt like it was all going towards my eyes. The amount was leakage was not excessive according to SleepyHead, and tightening the mask was not effective. I have dents in my nose from wearing glasses.

Hi player,
I tried the N10 and found it to be noisy at higher pressures. I liked it in all other ways; it fit me well, I liked the headgear, (including the magnetic clips,) but I couldn't get past the noise.
You might have great success with it, though, good luck.

What pressure do you call "higher pressures"?
I am at 11-16, rarely going over 13.

I got my Resmed N10 and it works fine. It's lighter, lower profile, and more comfortable than the Philips.
