[split] Best Nasal Mask to Minimize Leaks

[split] Best Nasal Mask to Minimize Leaks
I was wondering which mask is better to minimize leaks. I have the mirage and the airfit n10 and the wisp. The wisp is too noisy. I hate using the machine being tied up. If i do not use i cannot breathe and it helps me sleep.

I have tried over a dozen masks and the bleep mask is the greatest.  No leaks no headgear and no adjustments needed during the night.  I almost always get zero leaks.

Phillips Wisp and Resmed Airfit N20 both work fine for me, either are very good from my experience

I'm curious to try this out. I've read good things on the bleep, not sure how well it works for people with deviated septums though. Hmm..

I have a deviated septum and have no problem with the bleep mask.

You won’t regret it, I started with a full face mask. You don’t know you are wearing anything with the bleep.  Let us know how you are doing after you get it.

RE: [split] Best Nasal Mask to Minimize Leaks
P10 Pillow mask is a good one to minimize leaks. Generally, the smaller the mask the better for leaks because there is less area to seal.
The Mirage Activa was my go-to mask for years. It is large for a modern nasal mask but it has a bellows and a large seal. Properly adjusted when under pressure you can move this mask about a half-inch in any direction and not break the seal.

Never tried the bleep
