  • My husband has one. It is really pretty quiet--and I don't do well with noises while I sleep, but it does take a bit of getting used to. But now that he has this, he's stopped snoring and we BOTH sleep better.

  • They have models that are fairly quiet, like a humidifier. The mask, depends on the person and how they sleep. I don't think thats its extremely uncomfortable, they have different types to try and accomidate everyone.

    good luck..

  • My dad uses one and some of the kids I take care of use them. I don't remember it being very noisy. Just have him get a long hose for the mask, that will make it a little more comfortable.

  • My dad has one. Yes it is noisy. I don't know about being uncomfortable though.
