RE: STRONG pressure with dreamware nasal mask
My impression is fairly favorable....definitely louder because of the non-diffused front vent (maybe they need a bigger vent with a "filter" style diffuser on it?). I have found it a little more "direct" with its pressure....but that's fairly typical with nasal masks...not as much dead air space to buffer the pressure changes.

My issue was a little bit of pressure / rubbing at the base of my nose...I have a big schnoz and it has caused some fit issues with other masks in the past. I thought it was going to be the death knell on this one, but it has settled down (to borrow from The Rules from cycling, my nose decided to take rule #5 to heart and HTFU Wink )

It's not perfect, but I think the design is very promising.
