Still need help?  Get fast answers from in-house experts.



Q. Can I use the Nuance CPAP mask with any CPAP machine?

A. The Philips Respironics Nuance, like any other mask, can be used with any CPAP machine.  Standard CPAP tubing is used to connect the CPAP machine to the Nuance.


Q.  Will this just cover my nose or go into my nose?

A.  The Philips Respironics Nuance is considered a nasal pillow mask.  The pillow has 2 small openings that fit slightly into the nostril.  The Nuance mask does not cover your mouth.  Because the pillow is only slightly inserted into the nose, it will not cause irritation like a traditional a nasal cannula.  The pillow is designed to comfortably seal at the opening of the nose.


Q.  Can I wear glasses with this mask?

A.  The Nuance was designed specifically to enable CPAP users the ability to read or watch TV without interference from the mask.  Its low profile and very modest style will afford comfort and simplicity all while providing effective CPAP therapy.


Q.  Is the Pillow replaceable?

A.  Not only is the Nuance Pillow replaceable, it can be replaced with a different size.  Additionally, the Nuance headgear and frame can be replaced.  The Nuance frame comes in either all fabric, or a gel padded frame. The Nuance is also very easily disassembled for cleaning and replacing parts.


Q. I am a side sleeper. Can I use this mask?

A.  Although it is difficult for a mask seal to remain leak free while sleeping on your side, the low profile of the Nuance makes it much easier.  In fact, because it essentially only seals at the nose opening, the cheek is free to rest on the pillow without interference.


Q. I have a mustache, is it ok to use this mask?

A.  Beards and mustaches do present a challenge to CPAP masks.  But because of its low profile and soft, pliable gel pillow, it will do a better job staying leak free than many other masks.


Q I have a pressure of 15, can I use this mask?

A.  Yes.  In fact, the Nuance mask was designed to handle pressure at a level of 20.


Q.  Can I return the Nuance if I don’t like it.

A.  We have a 30 day return policy at The CPAP Shop.  If you don’t like the Nuance, please contact us and we will make arrangements for a new CPAP mask or a refund.  Please read about our return policy here.

"Nuance pro" - Review by Adeline
Nuance pro

It's frustrating that the gel sides don't stay in the frame - this is the second one I've had to replace because the gel falls out
I am a side and stomach sleeper and this doesn't work as well,as I'd hoped -

"Still love it" - Review by scubaray
Still love it

It's been nearly 2 months now and I am still sleeping much better. The pillows continue to fit well with no air leakage - so no waking up to the sound of a wind tunnel. Love it!

"Gel pillows? What will they think of next??" - Review by Josh
Gel pillows? What will they think of next??

I'm a fan of gel masks, I went from the Comfortgel Nasal to the ResMed Softgel [also a nasal] but I wanted something more minimal since even though the gel felt great it would start to bother the bridge of my nose. When I found out about nasal pillows I tried the silicone to no avail, to me [again this isn't true for everyone] but to me, the gel just felt so much better, I'm a bit disappointed that there are no other gel pillow masks.

The rep explained to me that the fabric frame was voted the more comfortable of the two, but the 'pro' frame tended to last longer. Since I didn't care how long it would last [as long as I got a good night's sleep!] I chose the fabric frame, and it feels fantastic!

Highly recommend!

"Love it" - Review by scubaray
Love it

I'm surprised at the varied reviews on this product. I love it and am sleeping much better since I bought it. I like the lighter headgear and the nasal fit which stays tight and has no air leakage. I'm so glad I found it and decided to try it out.

"Best Mask so far" - Review by Frank
Best Mask so far

I have been trying every type of mask out there and for me the Nuance Pro Gel works great. It is very easy to clean and assemble. The head straps are easy to adjust, very light weight and do not leave a mark. With this mask I am able to lay on my side without causing leaks. So happy I found it, great product.

"Great for the first few weeks" - Review by Justin
Great for the first few weeks

I've been using the nuance pro for 3 months. The first few weeks with the Nuance Pro were great. I could leave the straps fairly loose and still would get a good seal. Then after about 2-3 weeks the rear headstrap began to stretch out. So bad that I had my wife fold it over and sew it together to take about 2 inches out of the strap. Now I have to cinch it so tight that it scrunches my nose and hurts just to get it to seal. I long for those first few weeks when I thought cpap was going to be a breeze.

"Love/Hate Relationship" - Review by Misty
Love/Hate Relationship

Love the light weight head straps...I have always slept with my hair in a high ponytail to keep my hair out of my face so the fact this helps keep any type straps in place is a plus...but the nuance straps stay in place way better than previous masks that had much heavier, constricting straps.

Dislike the Pro Nuance gel straps across the cheeks...I find them sticky (most likely helps keep head gear in place) but every couple of hours they wake me because they feel like they are "biting" into my cheeks. Wished I had gone with the cloth face strap.

But the deal breaker--hate the gel nasal pillows...I have used traditional nasal pillows for a year without any problem... But these gel coated ones have caused continuous nasal irritation--dry, burning, itchy, bleeding nasal passages.

Obviously, my nasal passages are ultra-sensitive to the gel. Not a reaction that everyone will have but something for others to consider before investing the money.

"NOT a one-size-fits-all head gear" - Review by Terri
NOT a one-size-fits-all head gear

This is a good product in theory. The gel adds a comfort that other pillows can't match, but the head gear is poorly designed for those of us with small heads. The straps come over my eyes and no matter how I adjust it, it doesn't fit me at all. The no slip strap in the back is nice and works well, but on the whole, this is not a well-designed system. Sorry I purchased it.

"Gel mask" - Review by Hanahut
Gel mask

I have the gel mask and have only had it for 6 months and my gel packs tore out of the frame. My insurance will only pay for one per year. I love this mask but now that the gel packs are gone, it is uncomfortable on my face. I would like to know if I could buy a new one only, not the whole thing.

"Does not stay in place" - Review by Crys
Does not stay in place

Headgear is constantly moving. To keep in place I have to wear my hair in a ponytail and put the strap under it or it will slip off many times a night.

"great" - Review by guitaremann

"I like it a lot." - Review by Carma-ck
I like it a lot.

The best mask I have used-- the Nuance Pro. I am using it with the Respironics BiPap autoSV advanced System One, so it may be as much the machine as it is the mask. The first week I used this I wore it upside down (duh), and it still worked fine but when I turned it over I realized how great it really was. I recommend the Respironics video on how to wear it. Once I watched that, it was even easier and more comfortable to wear. I don't move much when I sleep, so if you do you may not get the same result. I do sleep on both sides and my back and this is working great for me. I wear it as loose as I can and still not have leaks. A good night's sleep is priceless.
I found the video by downloading the SleepMapper app on my iPhone, then going through the setup for the app .

"Some nice perks!" - Review by Robert
Some nice perks!

I own two masks. The Philips nuance pro, gel buds and the Philips Wisp nose mask. Both work as expected.
The buds:
Pros - light weight, in intrusive, ez to read with glasses, nice for watching TV, easy on and off.
Cons - have to use large buds and wish they were slightly larger. Needs adjusted occasionally because I roll and turn a lot.

The Wisp - stays in place very good, very quiet, great seal, comfortable fit, very soft
Cons - more difficult to read with glasses on, always get an itchy noise, more difficult to get off and on. Les convent than buds.

Conclusion: I haven't found the perfect mask, I doubt I will. I'm very glad I selected these 2 masks. I swap out every now and then both have things I like, both are good quality and work as expected.

"Comfortable but does not stay on" - Review by Jen
Comfortable but does not stay on

I just started using a Cpap 2 weeks ago and I am miserable. Still up all night because the headgear keeps sliding off of my head. I put my hair in a ponytail hoping it would hold it in place but no luck. The small nose pillow is still to big for my nostrils. What else can I do? I am extremely claustrophobic so even this little mask feels like it is suffocating me.

"This is the most comfortable mask that I have used so far." - Review by Tony
This is the most comfortable mask that I have used so far.

This mask is comfortable because the gel shapes itself to the outer(lower) part of my nostrils and the part that protrudes into my nostril does not cause any discomfort to the nostril. To get around problems with movement during the night I do the following things.
1) I wear a snug t shirt to which I have attached a 10 inch strip of --Soft & Flexible Sew-On Velcro.
2) On the light weight flexible tubing to the mask I have attached 10 pieces of STICKY BACK Velcro. Each piece goes at least half way round the diameter of the tubing. This really locks the mask in place.
3) Because my mouth used to fall open during the night I take a 9 inch strip of "EQUATE" clear adhesive tape and I attach it in the center around the light weight flexible tubing at the point where the light weight flexible tubing crosses my jaw below my lower lip. After attaching the tape to the tubing I take the two ends and tape them down on the left and right side of my face. This PREVENTS my mouth from falling open during the night. Finally I am getting a good nights' sleep after 75 years ( I am 79).

( I will be out of town for the next couple of weeks.)

"Even the large size was not large enough" - Review by Julius
Even the large size was not large enough

This was the first nasal Pillow Mask I tried, but even the large size did not seem to be large enough..
I also had problem with the headgear not staying in place and I had to get up and adjust it several times during the night.
I went back to my Mirage FX Nasal Mask and never tried another Nasal Pillow Mask.
However now with the good reviews on the ResMed Airfit P10 which comes with all 3 pillow sizes I w ll give the Nasal Pillow a try again.

"pretty good mask" - Review by jessica t.
pretty good mask

I have tried all kinds but the nuance seems to work really well for me. I switch between the gel and regular headgears which works just fine. The gel pillows are a better fit than others I have tried. I give it a B+

"Average product... poor customer service" - Review by Brock
Average product... poor customer service

I purchased the gel frame version of the Philips Respironics Nuance™ and Nuance™ Pro Gel Nasal Pillows masks. I have been using it for about 3 months.

It's fairly comfortable, but the gel frame leaves very noticeable 'witness marks' on my face that last for a couple of hours in the morning. The nose pillows work ok, as long as you keep the headgear tight (see above).

I e-mailed the CPAP shop to see if I could purchase a cloth frame within the first week (maybe days?) of using it... crickets. No reply whatsoever.

I wonder if the owners of the CPAP shop know that I get angry at their company every morning when I look in the mirror, just because no one at their company could take a couple on minutes to reply to my e-mail?

The CPAP Shop Responds:

Hello Brock, Thank you for your comments on the Nuance. Also, we regret not responding to your email. Going back into our system, it seems as though no email was ever received. We take customer service very seriously and do our best to respond to every email, chat or phone call. For whatever reason, the email never reached our system. Nevertheless, we would like to send you a complimentary cloth frame. Hopefully, this will make your experience with the Nuance better than it is today. If we can be of further assistance, you can always contact us directly via chat or phone at 866-414-9700.

"The Gel is nice but....." - Review by Wendell
The Gel is nice but.....

Yes, the gel on the sidebands are nice, but my straps keep sliding up and off my head as I toss and turn quite a bit. Which causes me to wake up and pull it back on. I never experienced this with my Aloha mask. Oh yeah and I noticed the price drop I paid $159 for it pretty pricey.
