What (quieter) mask can I move to from a Dreamwear ?

What (quieter) mask can I move to from a Dreamwear ?
Hello, 

I have been using for about two years now. Commercial Link Removed. Instead search for P.R. Dreamwear Gel Pillow Mask at the cpap clinic.  
Its a comfortable enough mask, but its a fair bit loud, for the partner. 

What are the masks the good people here recommend ? I intend to use the Philips Respironics dream station and perhaps the heated tube.


The new mask needs to be quieter. I am a side sleeper who switches sides frequently and occasionally wake up to have a sip of water or use the toilet. 
My AHI has been under 1 most of the times and the mask fit at 97% with the current setup. 

Thank you.

RE: What (quieter) mask can I move to from a Dreamwear ?
The mask I’ve been using for quite some time is the ResMed F20 in both AirFit (silicone) and AirTouch (memory foam). This a full face style. This past week I received my new ResMed N30i which is a nasal mask.

The F20 is very quiet at least to my ears. This series has a newer redesign of the elbow called QuietAir. I’m still getting used to the N30i, but seems to me to be relatively quiet. To me it sounds different, neither good or bad just different.

You can successfully mix and match mask and machine makers in most cases. Exception being the portable or travel CPAPs, some of those may require certain masks.

From my experience there is no better mask then the one you have, especially considering I own it and a bunch of others and it's one of the quieter. Seems to me your partner needs to buckle up and accept it as part of your treatment. Why don't she/he just use some ear plugs or something. If she/he can't do something so little for you, it might be old age at play, people getting grumpy and all, heck she/he might even have apnea themselves.

Point being, your mask is already at the quiet spectrum.
