I’m thinking the smaller 15mm tube is why I get more noise with the dreamwear nasal mask than I had with the Icon which has a larger hose diameter. Would adding an 18” 22mm hose between the heated hose and mask be worth a try or would that cause problems with the machine’s algorithms or other issues?

I would like to go back to not having to wear earplugs.

Adding a short hose of a different diameter than your long hose shouldn't be a problem with the machine's algorithm.
A lot of people add another hose between the long hose either because the mask comes with the short hose or they just want a little more hose length.

You could also try a larger diameter long hose if you want to try it.
Cheap generic hoses of the 22 inch diameter would work but of course not heated.

Unfortunately I need some heat or I nearly lose my voice. I’ll try the short, larger diameter hose first and see if that helps.
