Philips Respironics DreamStation Auto Feedback
“Extremely satisfied with comfort and ease of use.” – Review by Max
The unit is very quiet and also light weight. I have no problems with the humidifier and I love the heated tubing which I have never used before. I have been using CPAP for 19 years. The new technologies incorporated into the Dream Station is very useful and amazing !!!
“Best Machine Ever” – Review by ChristheOwl
Had the DreamStation for 6 months and I gotta say that I LOVE IT!! Best machine I ever had. I have the battery pack and use it camping (no humidifier though). Works perfect.
“simply the best” – Review by bigdutch
Tried and used 3 different ones. This one is simply the best, most useable, versatile, quiet and very efficient.

“Awesome machine, worth the price” – Review by Mouthbreather
After many hours of research, this was the best. I am so happy with it. It is small and quiet. I also use the heated tubing with this machine. It is the perfect set up. I have traveled with this, used it in hotels with no issue. Comes with a perfect travel case, also. I also love being able to log into the ResMed website and track my progress with the machine.
“The AirSense 10” – Review by Steveo
My wife had purchased this unit last year. I just started a CPAP and purchased the AirSense 10. Both of us love this machine. It’s very quiet, great functions and nice carrying case for when we have to travel. Definitely a great purchase!
“Great machine” – Review by Victor G
I started using this machine about a month ago and I love it. My wife says that I stopped snoring. I sleep much better and I’m so tired during the day. Should have done this years ago.
So, Which One is the Winner? Which is better AirSense 10 or DreamStation?
While both CPAP machines match in quality, there are a few characteristics that make one preferred over the other. First, The DreamStation is the more lightweight and compact machine, making it by far the best choice for frequent travel. The AirSense 10 delivers more features and functionality while still providing portability.
For users who travel and want the basics, the DreamStation is the ideal CPAP machine. For users who like sleep coaching services and an integrated humidifier in their travel CPAP, the AirSense 10 delivers.
