"I ordered this mask at the end of December but am not submitting a rating till now as I wanted to see how it worked over a couple of months. My primary mask prior to this was a F&P 407 (flex fit) so my comparison is with this mask. The flex fit has a two part sealing system with foam and then silicon parts that I found lasted about 3-4 months before they developed cracks or holes and had to be replaced. The UM2 uses a one part cushion to seal around the nose--a welcome change. The only thing I do not like about the UM2 cushion is the cushion clip seems rather brittle (but I have not broken it in two months of usage so who am I to complain) and could have been made more sturdy. The headgear is the best I have ever used. I have used after-market cloth strap covers to keep from getting "strap face" the next morning. With the UM2 I don't have this problem, it is the most comfortable headgear that I have ever used. The headgear clips are also very easy to use...only thing I don't like is it does not have a swivel mechanism on it so that if you clip it on with the strap turned on itself you can not straighten the strap out (you must detach, straighten the strap out and then reclip). This is a minor complaint as in return I feel that the clip will not have to be constantly replaced as I have read reviewers of the Comfort Gel mask having problems with this. The only other problem (another minor problem--but full disclosure is a good thing) is the forehead support--perhaps I have it too tight but I like a good seal, --I usually wake up with an indentation in my forehead from the support in my forehead that takes about 2-3 hours to go away.
Ok now I have compliance data from my encore-viewer software. I use a pressure setting of 11.
With the F@P flex fit hc407: avg time apnea per day 12 sec., avg. time in lg leak per day 39 sec., avg ahi 0.7. With the Ultra Mirage 2: avg time apnea per day 2 sec., avg. time in lg leak per day 0 sec., avg ahi 0.5.
I am very demanding of what I consider good sleep (I never sleep without my cpap, and always have 100% compliance). The Ultra Mirage 2 helps me sleep better with less problems...there are a few minor annoyances but on the whole I am very pleased."
"Had high hopes based on reviews and the amount of people that had purchased this mask. It was comfortable and the construcion solid. The downfall was the exhaust port. It is extremely noisy and it blows on you in whatever direction the elbow faces. Tried it for three nights and struggled each night not knowing if the mask was leaking or just blowing exhaust on me. Woke up each morning with dry eyes or lips, depending on the direction of the elbow. Also the amount of air that blows through the exhaust is excessive. My cpap pressure felt much lower than normal due to this. Had the insurance and sent it back. Originally wanted to purchase the Mirage Activa LT mask but the on line sizing tool said it was not a good fit. I checked Resmeds website and according to Resmed the sizing is the same for these two masks. I just ordered the Activa LT, this has a redesigned exhaust port -we will see what happens."
"Mask is lesser quality than expected."
"I have used the HC407 for many years. I was happy with it and refused to try a new mask because I was worried about the proper fit with an online order and I didn't want to purchase insurance. I took a chance on the Ultra Mirage anyway an very happy that I did. The fit is much better and the quality is too because I don't have to worry about cracks after 3 or 4 months and the vent of the Ultra deflects away from your sleeping partner, allowing them to sleep better too."
"comfortable and quiet. The escape air is not too noisy."
