Philips Respironics Wisp Nasal CPAP Mask with Headgear
The Respironics Wisp Nasal CPAP Mask offers you a soft and comfortable fit for your sleep therapy needs. Designed to attach easily to your face, the headgear can be worn loosely without sacrificing performance. Best of all, the Wisp doesn't have a forehead attachment, so if you like reading or watching TV before you go to bed, this is the mask for you.
Multi-Size Cushion Design
The Wisp CPAP Mask's cushion is a small and lightweight nose piece. The outer silicone membrane barely touches your face creating minimal contact, performance and comfort. Worried about correct sizing? You'll be able to choose between three different cushions for maximum comfort and fit. This Wisp Nasal Mask comes packaged with a small/medium cushion, a large cushion, and an extra large, so you'll be able to choose whichever one that will give you the most comfortable and secure fit.
If you have tried a nasal pillow in the past and did not care for it, you may find the Wisp a better choice for your Sleep Apnea therapy.
Wisp Frame Options
You have options with the Wisp Mask frame. You can either choose the clear silicone frame, or the reversible fabric frame which has a soft side and a silky side.
Philips Wisp Headgear
Unlike a good majority of CPAP masks, the Wisp does not come with a forehead support feature. Instead, the mask's headgear wraps around the side of your face -- above and below your ears -- and the Wisp comes with a strap for the top of your head to ensure stability and security, and magnetic headgear clips. You'll be able to read or watch television with an unobstructed view with this design.
The Wisp CPAP mask comes packaged with a lightweight and flexible short tube that can be disconnected easily, so cleaning your Wisp will be quick and painless.

Subject: Great mask
This mask is very comfortable and light. The headgear is breathable and comfortable. Cushion is plain but does its job, headgear helps keep it in place and I've been able to sleep without isuses.
Subject: Head gear for the wisp
This is the best head gear I have had in seven years. The ones before all broke in the same place
I can tell this headgear will not do that. I do not know why the pharmacy I used never gave me these choices.
When shopping for a mask, I was just looking for something cheap and light that would work. This wisp fit that bill and had good reviews. So far the mask has lived up to those reviews and I’m pleased with it.
There really isn’t much to the mask. It’s a pretty simple headgear that holds your head on the nape and on the crown. There’s four points you can tighten it. It fits well and I don’t really feel it slipping when I sleep. The material is breathable which is good, and there’s magnetic clips on the bottom to make removal of the entire mask easier. As a note, there’s two different versions. One that has fabric straps across the cheek, and the other is silicon. I don’t mind silicon so I went for that but if you don’t like the feel, then you should go for the fabric one.
Cushion goes over the nose, as its a nasal mask. Nothing to write home about, but it does its job. Replacements are pretty cheap too and I’ve been able to sleep normally, so I’m perfectly content with it. Overall the fit and feel of the mask is what I would describe as unnoticeable. It doesn’t impede my vision in any way, it feels light, and I don’t get any irritation. Especially for the price, this mask is superb.
The Wisp is a great minimalistic mask that fulfills all my needs. It’s on sale at a very cheap price too which meant I had no qualms about paying for it myself.
Pros: The frame is comfortable and convenient. It’s two light straps that hold on the back of your head, so nothing going across your forehead. This leaves your line of sight perfectly clear and you can wear glasses without issue. It’s also easy to adjust and has magnetic clasps so you can easily take it off and put it on without losing your strap setting. As for the cushion, the package comes with all three sizes. I just ended up sticking with the standard but I’ve been getting excellent air flow. It sits right over your nose.
Cons: I don’t have many cons to speak of. The cushion, as stated, goes right over your nose. The first few months I used it, I would get red marks around my nose. Eventually I played around with the strap settings and found an ideal level, but before that I was getting annoyed with the cushion. Trying a larger cushion may have been a prudent idea.
Final thoughts: Really, I think this is a perfect mask for most people. It is mostly comfortable and does its job. For the current price of under 50 dollars, it’s an absolute steal.
I've been getting a good night's rest from the wisp nasal mask for almost 3 years now. Very thankful for this mask. Such a comfortable mask that lives up to my expectations. Recently respironics added magnetic clips as an update. But I don't think they are necessary; the old design worked just as well. The magnetic one might be more easier to clip in but they both work perfectly well.
The seal is for this mask very good. The mask doesn't shift around when I sleep and change positions/sleep on my side. I tend to change positions a lot depending on the night so I don't have one sleep position. But I have never noticed it leaking. I also never have to readjust my mask in the middle of the night. The mask stays tight and works very well for me.
I have sensitive skin and this mask is probably one of the few that I can use without irritation. I use padding for my mask which might make a difference but I haven't noticed red marks on my face when I wake up. I also dont have problems waking up in the middle of the night or anything. I can't stress enough how comfortable and quiet this mask is.
Hats off to respironics. I'm very impressed by this mask. If youre on the edge about trying this mask I recommend you try it.
I bought this mask after using a nasal pillow mask for nearly 10 years - 1000% better - I sleep through the night with no mask leaks. I wish I would have bought this sooner. Best mask I have ever worn.
Its ok. I find it a bit too short for my nose heigh twise on the sm/med, and too wide on the large nosepiece. The sm/med sits on the bridge of my nose and the large doesn't seal well on my chipmunk cheeks. Has taken some time to adjust but does the job.
I liked the design and comfort. The nose piece was hard to get a good deal.
This mask is non-invasive and relatively comfortable. It's the most comfortable mask I own. I'm able to sleep with it on and it's so quiet. It's the next best thing to no mask at all. I wake rested and refreshed.
This is the best nasal mask ever.
It is comfortable and quite.

Fits great but product is absolute garbage. Within 8 months 2 of these masks broke right around nose. No wonder warranty is only 90 days.
Fits really well and works fantastic! Wish I had bought it a long time ago!
I really wanted this mask to work for me, but it didn't. I probably needed a petite size mask because I couldn't get a seal around my nose. The frame left marks on my face because I had to have it really tight in order to create the seal. If your nose fits I think it would be a good mask. Very thankful for the return/exchange policy of the Respshop and for the representative that I spoke to. The representative was very helpful, understanding and kind. He helped me order a replacement and even told me about the heated tubing that I had no idea about.
The way the head joins with the frame is uncomfortable and seems to push in on my nasal passages. Not a good design. I've already ordered the "Pico" to replace it.
Thank you for your feedback, we appreciate it!
Luckily we do have a Mask Assurance Policy if the mask you purchase is not right for you:)
As a side sleeper other masks prevented a comfortable position. This one is great. Sleeping through the night and no headaches from my neck at a strange angle.
This mask is great fitting, No leaks. Very comfortable, Very happy! Will buy again!
Fits well. Priced well. More comfortable than previous mask.
Works perfectly, the head gear could be a little stronger but it does what it's supposed to.
I am very satisfied with my new purchase. The selection of the mask is very much appreciated
Great product for a reasonable price. I would definitely recommend to others.
Excellent replacement mask, just as pictured, no surprises.
Awesome fit very comfortable and light no leaks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The WISP Nasal Mask with Headgear is horrible since I cannot sleep well with it. $109 for a mask is not a great deal
The mask is not bulky as other mask I had. Mask I had nasal mask with blue jell and full face mask. This mask is comfortable to wear and I had no problems with it.
Definitely like it a lot better than my full face mask. I like the head gear as it's not as confining as the full face mask gear I had.
The only complaint I have is for the price I would have thought the nasal pillow would be a lot more comfortable with a bit better of a cushion pillow.
I wasn't happy with this mask. The material is great but it put tremendous pressure on my face and it really hurt (i could feel nerves on my face). I guess nasal masks are not for me.
This is my nightly go to mask. I have the fabric type. I just love how you can easily detach the hose from the mask. This is just perfect specially when you have to wake up and go to the toilet to do your thing. The only issue I have with the Wisp is during high pressures when leaks start to come out. Any much tighter in the adjustment would make my nose bridge sore. Perhaps, a lining would help solve this problem though.
Great mask! Very easy to use and disassemble for cleaning. My favorite by far!
It is a very good mask, use 1 year. old damaged mask is normal.i thank the Respshop, I got the mask in Romania in 3saptamani.
Your mileage must vary widely on this one. I found this mask fit poorly (regardless of size of pillow applied), slipped often during the night and commonly leaked. To keep the mask from leaking, I had to tighten the mask more securely and would have marks on my face the next day. I'm going back to my other mask, personally. For my part, I don't recommend this at all - but perhaps you'd have better luck than I did.
Best CPAP mask I ever owned in 5 1/2 years... Very comfortable, no forehead band, the tube can turn easily with you when you turn in bed, the ttube can be slipped into a sleeve on top of your head and stays in place on top of your head so you do not have the tube hanging down in front of you which helps not having leaks... Love the 3 size mask :) I am reordering the same again :) found my fit
Excellent Wisp nasal CPAP mask I have ever used, comfortable and came with three different sizes of of cushions which I was able to find the right that gives me the comfortability and secure fit. The good thing I like about this mask is that it didn't come with a forehead pads that I didn't like with my other mask, headgear is very soft and easy to care for.
Best cpap mask on the market! .Have tried quite a few but this one wins,hands down
The most comfortable mask I've ever owned. Never going back to full face masks.
Best mask I have used so far for cpap. Drawer full of cpap masks and usually different one every night, uncomfortable, fidget, hate them, this one works good so far though, sleep better, perform better, way better!!!!! Keep using the respironics wisp one if you struggle like me!
Been using this mask for awhile now. Been a cpap user for roughly 10 years and I always hated that the old masks had bars in front of your face. Respironics mask is nice because I can read while I am using the machine. 5 stars because of the price and delivery speed. Local mask is nearly triple the cost.

Both sides of the support bridges broke into two.
This is my second mask breaks in the same way.
Both of the masks broke in the same points.
