Breakthrough Design for Comfort and Performance
As the first Gel Nasal Pillow Mask to hit the market, the Nuance and Nuance Pro nasal pillow CPAP masks were designed with a gel nasal pillow. These were to perfectly conform to your face creating a seal. They were meant to improve your sleep therapy without causing irritation to your face and nasal area.
There are three different sizes of pillow cushions that come with your Nuance; small, medium, and large, allowing for you to test all three to determine the best fit. You can also find replacement cushions when you know what size fits best. Choosing the correct size extends the life of the mask and allows for maximum comfort at all times. Air is routed towards the direction of the short tube thanks to exhalation ports, meaning air will flow in the same direction of the short tube that is most comfortable to the CPAP user preference.
Fabric or Gel Frame?
Nuance Pro Gel Mask - Silicone Frame with Gel Pads
The Nuance CPAP gel pillows mask comes with gel pads that soften the mask feel near the cheek area. Part of the frame itself is made of silicone that is flexible allowing for increased comfort during sleep apnea therapy. This is the part that connects to the nasal insert. Its gel fits snugly against the skin and stops red marks from forming. The crown strap is composed of a soft fabric. Best of all, the silicone frame is light weight and easy to travel with.
Nuance Nasal Pillow Mask: Fabric Frame - Soft Cloth Frame
Soft fabric that is flexible and lightweight, the Nuance Pro CPAP mask frame has a built in retaining ring that secures the gel nasal pillow in position. Like the silicone frame, the soft cloth frame is extremely lightweight creating an easy to travel with CPAP mask.
Short Tube for Improved Flexibility
Creating a buffer between the longer hose from your CPAP machine and the gel nasal pillow. This allows for improved flexibility during CPAP therapy. Movement during use will not cause the seal to break thanks to the swivel connected to the short tubing. The short tube can also be moved over the top of the head to keep the hose away from the users face during CPAP therapy.
- Two different framing options available
- Nuance Pro with a silicone frame and the Nuance with a soft cloth frame.
- Gel nasal pillows - Forms a comfortable seal around the nose without pinching or pressure.
- Travel friendly - Lightweight with only 4 parts, the Nuance and Nuance Pro CPAP masks are easy to pack and travel with.

Comfort is all about the positioning for the Nuance and Nuance Pro CPAP nasal pillow mask. If you have the Respironics nasal pillow mask positioned poorly, your comfort will be affected. It can lead to irritation of the face and skin. The top buckle should always be positioned on the top of your head. You will see a Philips Respironics logo on the back strap of the mask. This logo should be positioned on the back of your head. This allows for the pillow cushions to be placed in the most comfortable location.
Do I need to know what size to purchase before ordering?
All three sizes come with each mask purchase allowing you to test all three before deciding on what size fits best and provides the most comfort. After purchasing, you can order additional replacements of your chosen size so that you will have more in stock to guarantee that your mask is operating at its highest performance.
I don't have a Respironics CPAP machine, but I am interested in this mask. Is it compatible with any other types of CPAP machines?
All of the masks we sell our compatible with all of the CPAP, APAP, VPAP, and BiPAP machines we sell. You can use this mask with any type of machine to improve your therapy.
How often should I be washing my mask and what is the most effective way?
We recommend that you wash your mask, tube, and other assorted items for your CPAP therapy machine daily. For the mask specifically, you should use warm water and a mild detergent in order to lengthen the masks life. We also sell wipes and sprays that can aid you in cleaning. Regular maintenance will allow your mask to work at its optimum levels much longer.

Subject: Product review
Product was exactly what I needed. I saved money and super fast delivery. Thank you very much Respshop.
Our pleasure, thank you from the Respshop team.
I thought this would be an improvement over my old mask, and at first I found it very comfortable and convenient. Within a week, however, the velcro that allows for adjustment of the straps began to weaken. The slightest motion at night causes it to snap loose, breaking the seal around my nose. I won't be ordering this product again.
I'm sorry about your experience. It sounds like you have a defective mask. Please give us a call at 866-936-3730! We have a 30 day warranty on masks.
I ordered this mask and was very disappointed by the lack of seal that it provides - very noisy despite trying all three size pillows. I went back to my old mask.
We're so sorry to hear that! We do have a mask assurance policy so we will gladly exchange this for a mask that works for you. Just give us a call at 1 866 936 3754 or chat with us on our webpage.
I purchased the nuance pro gel nasal mask and have been using it for approximately a month now. At first, I was a bit disappointed by the section where the nasal pillow attaches to the headgear because it was leaking quite a lot in the first few days I tried it. Also, the section of the mask with the nose part seemed a little flimsy to me. But, I realized I could adjust the mask pretty well with my headgear and also my cushion size and eventually I got it so the mask doesn't leak for my face shape. So far over a month, I haven't experienced any more leaking. And also the nose part of the mask has held up surprisingly. I had a bad first impression with this mask but after giving it a chance, frankly speaking, it's not a bad mask by any means. Definitely good value for the price. Respshop was very helpful in giving me advice about this mask.
Subject: Favorite Mask
Very good lightweight CPAP mask that is also comfortable. The cushion has gel in it which makes it fit better and also reduces pressure. You can also choose between a gel or fabric frame. I use gel and it's comfortable and breathable. Great mask overall.
Subject: Slight leaks when moving
This is the second time I bought this mask and I don't know why but it feels very different from the first one I used in the past. I move around a lot and there are leaks from where the piece where the nose pillow and the headgear meet. I also can't get this part to connect comfortably without leaking. It's either too loose and leaks, or its too tight and uncomfortable to sleep with. My nose hurt very badly in the morning after I set it up too tight once. I will be returning this because I think the sizing was off for me. My old mask didn't have these problems so I don't know if the mask changed or if I changed.
This is a pretty expensive mask so I am disappointed that I have to return it. I will update If my new mask is better.
Subject: Phillips Nuance Pro Gel Mask
Very comfortable, even for a new CPAP user. Easy to adjust, and doesn't interfere with my sleep.
When I was looking for a mask, I saw there was a lot of craze for gel masks, in particular that one nasal mask from Philip. However, I’ve always been a pillow user so I wanted to find a pillow mask with gel. That’s how I found the Nuance Pro. Not only did it have gel, but it was also on sale for a really good price! This made it an instant buy and I am very glad I did.
I was glad to see it came with all three pillow sizes to try and there doesn’t seem to be differing frame sizes, so no need to fret about measuring. I can see why people like the gel so much, it made this pillow incredibly comfortable as well. They seal up really well but feel cool to the touch. They’re nice and pliable (but also firm) so they’re both comfortable and secure. Haven’t had any irritation. Also, the pillows are pretty cheap compared to ones I’ve had to buy for past masks, so I’m not worried about having to replace them.
Overall the mask is comfortable. In line with the gel theme, I got the gel frame as well. For similar reasons to what was mentioned above, the gel cheek pads are great. They keep my face feeling cool and distribute the pressure of the straps well. I don’t wake up with red lines from the straps or any kind of pain at all. The headgear also secures well and feels light and breathable.
I needed a Lil bigger size because the nasal pillows be pressing against my nose making it sore.
I am sorry to hear that! Sounds like you need a different size. We do have a mask guarantee program for orders 30days or less old. Please give us a call and we will be happy to help you. 866-936-3754
I'm finally free from sore spots under my nose! Very comfortable mask, and I'm very much enjoying using it so far. I've had mixed results with pillow masks so I was pleasantly surprised by this one. No leaks so far (I've been using it for 2 months) and my face feels free and not like it's not getting strapped like my old mask (res p10). Headgear is also light and comfortable. I sleep on my side if that makes a difference. Adjustable straps make the mask easily fit my face. It feels unobtrusive and makes it easy to scroll through my phone before I sleep. Definitely much less invasive compared to before. I'm very satisfied.
The only complaint I have is that this one is louder than my old mask. But this is a minor thing because this mask does everything else right. I'll continue using this mask for sure.
I’m someone who feels discomfort fairly easily so I wasn’t entirely happy with my previous masks. In one way or another, the straps would irritate me or the pillow/cushions would hurt my nose. Some experts I talked to recommended that I try gel pillows. After looking around, I came along this mask that has both gel pillows and gel padded straps! Decided I’d give it a shot and I have never bene happier, this was an excellent choice.
Comfort really is the name of the game here and it excels in all areas. The straps are almost unnoticeable, they’re just that light. Nice and soft material and the adjustment Velcro feels sturdy. As I mentioned though, I chose the gel frame which comes with these large pads of gel on the cheek straps. They’re fantastic, they feel cool against my face and really spread the pressure out. I have zero problems with red cheek lines now, which is something I could not say with my old masks. After experiencing this, I don’t think I can ever move away from gel-padded frames.
The gel on the pillow is great too. I always had issues with pillows pressuring around my nose, like someone was pinching it. All those issues went away with the gel pillow however and I’m happy to see replacements are quite economical too. No problems with seal, it seals up great and doesn’t slip at all at night.
For my review of the Nuance, there certainly is no nuance. The mask is flat out amazing and I’ll happily shout it from the rooftop. If anyone is looking for the most comfortable nasal pillow mask on the market, I’d gladly vouch for the Nuance as a contender.
Headgear is Comfortable
Comfortable headgear... It is lightweight, and the gel strap is very smooth.I enjoy this unit and recommend to anyone looking for comfort.
This face mask was the one that I wanted. It is very comfortable and easy to use.
Thank you for the prompt service and quality of the head gear you sent. I will order cushions as needed.
Device is much more comfortable than a full mask. I do not fill confined when I lay down to sleep.
Was just as I ordered. Good mask. Good quality. Direct replacement.
The nasal pillows are not as comfortable as my previous set
The ítem i order is very good,& iam happy whit your services tnks .
one of the best so far. value for money.
sleeps well with this nasal pillow
Works great but had to modify it to work with my previous Resmed Mini headset.
The mask and headgear are very comfortable.It came with 3 sizes of the nasal pillows so I could determine which size was best for me.
Hate the Velcro. After a few months it fails to stick. Very aggravating.
Love this. Very comfortable fit. Easy to adjust. Comes with different size pillows to get the correct size you need
I like it however I am still adapting to the change of mask
Just started using a CPAP machine this month. First mask I tried was so uncomfortable. This mask I was able to sleep over 8 hours the first night. Very comfortable and would highly recommend. May not be a good choice if you sleep with your mouth open. But for me it's VERY comfortable.
The purchase of my Respironics Nuance/Nuance Pro Gel Nasal Pillow CPAP Mask was delivered in good order through RespShop. Would highly recommend their products and timely service.
This is a Fantastic Unit, So impressed I have ordered another one for my Home Resmed Unit. I have been using the FX Remed Unit but the Phillips one is Better
I loved it from the start. Very comfortable. my machine is rather old. My head strap has stretched out and need a new one. Do they come [email protected]
I will not recommend this mask if you are at pressure level 10cmh2o or higher.
I have this mask for a week now and I was previously using the Wisp Nasal Mask with Headgear.
Changing mask type was because of the pressure on my face with the Nasal Mask, but this pillow mask makes tremendous pressure to my nose and I often woke up in the night and remove the mask to relief my nose.
The mask has noise to yourself only when you intake the air which is very annoying to me.
The mask cannot hold its position or blowing to hard into your nose when the pressure level is 10cmh2o or higher which would eventually wake me up in the middle of the night.
I really like this mask because it very comfortable and does not have the leaking problems other masks do. However, the only drawback is that the gel inserts do not stay in place for very long, and after a couple of weeks they tend to fall out and there is no way to set them back in place. there is a newer model that has no inserts, but the head gear straps are shorter, and fit very tight as they can not be adjusted properly. It would be great if those issues were resolved
i've had two of these masks in the last year and with both of them, the facial gel pads pop out and cannot be put back in place. Too expensive for this to happen. Will not recommend.
This is the best headgear I have ever worn. I'm sleeping so much better because it doesn't bother my face and wake me up.
Thank you for such a great product.
I want Pro Gel CPAP Nasal accessory SMALL SIZE, please.
I am 75 years old, I live in Ecuador, I'm patient with pulmonary emphysema, my doctor is specialist pulmonologist detected me a sleep apnea and considers it necessary to use a device that will help me to have better quality of life and sleep at least 5 or more hours at night since today 12 of June, 2016 only sleep 3 or 4 hours a day and I feel tired and sleep all day.
Note: I would like that send me Pro Gel CPAP Nasal accessory small size, please.
My dad have had sleep apnea for several years and he is always complaining about his full face mask that he is using, one of your customer service person told us about your Respironics Nuance Gel nasal mask, we then purchased couple of those and he has been extremely happy with it. It came with three different sizes of cushions in the package and he was able to try all 3 until he found the right size for his comfort. He is so pleased with your product that he is recommending it to his friends that also have sleeping disorder.
This is my first time purchasing from your company and your customer service was very helpful helping me decide which one to get. This nuance pro nasal pillow mask is very soft and it comes with 3 different sizes of cushions in the package so you can try all and see which one fits you perfectly. Very light weight, and comes with gel pads that would make it very soft on your cheek area. Very comfortable and makes it easy and convenient for me to read while wearing.
Very comfortable mask. I like the nasal pillows because I get all of the sizes I need in one. Bronson in customer service helped me pick out a mask when I am a first time user who did not know what size I needed. I got this over the other ones because it doesnt sit in my face, is very comfortable, allows me to watch tv while wearing it. Cushion sizes are good I used all of them to find the right size, now I know which one I need that fits best, doesnt leak, and I can replace cushions for cheap.
Overall very satisfied with this mask, and with Bronson who pointed me in the best direction. I will review the machine I got also.
Tried the nasal pillow mask after using nasals for so long. I like my comfortgel blue better so far. I guess the difference is really the size and weight of the mask, and that I can see more using this so I can read, the prongs take some getting used to and I can say not completely used to it yet, but its definitely quiet and light, good with both masks so far, probably keep wearing this one for awhile see if I can get used to the prongs.
My husband suffers from sleep apnea and he has always complained about how uncomfortable the masks were. We were told about the nasal pillow masks and that's when we purchased the Respironics Nuance Gel CPAP Nasal Pillow Mask with Pro Gel Frame, and let me tell you my husband was extremely pleased with this item. For him it's the best mask he has had in the past 10 years, overall he would highly recommend this to anyone and everyone.
