Look on Supplier #1 site, and you can see the photos.

Thanks OpalRose! Thanks

Yep, that's the difference in the regular Nuance and the Pro. The frame is fabric and soft on my face rather than sacs of gel that the Pro has. Headgear and pillows are identical and interchangeable. Like the Pilairo, very little of the cushion actually goes up your nose, and it seals wonderfully for me.

Should you ever try a WISP, you'll face a similar choice - they make a silicone frame and a fabric one. I have both, and like them both, some people report that the fabric frame wears out quickly on the WISP.
No gel in the silicone frame for this one, thankfully.

One size fits all has never worked with CPAP masks. Only mask I have ever had to leave a sore. Even the overly tight FFMs healed faster. And the exhale of the P10 is too difficult for some folks. I had a lot of trouble with it.

The P10 has a more difficult exhale than the Swift FX??
