This is last night after making a few adjustments to the headgear.
I had very similar experiences to yours - occasional dry mouth and lots of leaks. Yet no one has ever said that I sleep with my mouth open, including the sleep doctor after my sleep study. I suspect that my mouth is open only just a tiny bit; enough to let air out, but not enough to be visible to others watching me. And it doesn't help that I am a very active sleeper, rolling from side to side repeatedly during the night.
I tightened up the Wisp quite a bit, and this helped with the leaks, but they were still too high. Eventually I found success by adding a chin strap on top of the Wisp. The chin strap keeps the Wisp in place and keeps my mouth closed. Even so, occasionally I see a night with leaks up to 30L, although my average is probably somewhere between 5-10L.

My leaks are decreasing after adjusting the headgear. The high leaks were before I adjusted it I think.
I have a little bit of an imprint from the nasal cup so will need to loosen it up but I am loosening it in small increments to see where that "perfect" measurement is.
In the meantime, I really like this mask and my AHI is much lower, headgear is really comfortable, mask is comfortable and the leaks aren't waking me up. Also, I was butting up against the high pressure of 20 before I switched to the wisp and now, 5 days later, I have not come close to the 19.9 I was getting before. So positive results so far
