  • Bulky

    Im somewhat young and get a little embarrassed by the oxygen tubes and hate it being on my face. I ordered this thinking 'oh cool, the tubes wont be on my face.' However, people stare more with the head one than with the regular cannula.

  • Not worth the money

    I sure wished they had put way more thought into this item , the idea is great but not enough thought went into it, it will only fit tiny heads & i really do not think it will actually work for anyone.

    The stem that goes to your nose needs to be up about 1-1.5 inches forward on the left side piece

  • not for fat heads.

    After many attempts, I gave up. I have a 7 1/2 inch head and this will not adjust without falling out with the least movement.

  • Creative Design

    Very satisfied, but just a couple of points. Difficult to wear with eyeglasses and while eating. The adjusting "slides" need to better latch in place. On a positive note, other people have made comments that it looks more comfortable, and that "you look like you are on Bluetooth". You should market to hospital respiratory departments and pulmonary specialists.

    can not adjust head set so nose piece stays in position

  • oxyarm

    Takes a while to adjust and have trouble keeping it in place. I like the idea. Maybe make the head band a little wider and not so stiff, like with a bendable material but not too bendable. I don't like that little extra piece that sticks out beyond the pieces that go in your nose. Can you make it more like the headphones people use to talk on the phone...only it goes in your nose?

    I took a chance when I ordered this, it didn't "look" comfortable but I was hoping that it was just the picture. It was so cumbersome, and after days trying to figure out if I could even make it fit...I gave up and threw it I the garbage.

    cannula would not adjust comfortably to my nose

  • Finally a solution for staying active and profesional

    I purchased this item recently and have returned to purchase more. The headset takes some getting used to. It doesn't stay in place like the over the ears type, but if you take the time to extend all the adjustable bits everyone can find a comfortable adjusted fit. As a mom of 2 teens, and wife to a handsome IT professional, I was struggling with self image wearing the standard cannula. While I am disabled, I try hard to be the mother and wife that my family is proud of. While my family was supportive of my wearing the oxygen I was really struggling. When I found this headset Oxyarm it changed everything. My make up is not distorted, i fix my hear as a headband style with the oxyarm and use a fabric headband to cover the oxyarm on top & over the ears. The only thing visible is the little arm that fits in my nose. My doctor said he had never seen one before and I gave him this site to direct other young patients battling self image with the cannula tubes. When at home I wear my regular tubing but outside I wear the arm. Everyone should have at least one! even if its just for special occasions. this oxyarm is best oxygen accessory there is on the market! my ONLY complaint is that the actual nose piece is NOT replaceable. When it gets old or as mine has warped so that only one nostril is fitted securely anymore, you must buy the entire head piece again. Since the headband is very well made with cushions underneath the top of the head and behind the ears, I feel wasteful toss the entire arm. It would be much better is I could buy a box of replacement nasal pieces.

  • Nose plugs Wont Stay in Place

    Nose plugs will not stay in nose. Any movement of the head and the nose nobs come out. Very difficult to adjust. Suggest a re-design so that it fits and stays in place.

  • Headset really not useful

    This unit is not very flexible or easy to use. It is too small to fit my head and won't reach my nostrils. Looks good in the pictures, very impractical to use. Doesn't fit my tubing either.

  • Oxy arm worn differently is MUCH more comfortable!

    I found the Oxy Arm very uncomfortable at first particularly wearing it in the traditional manner -with the headband positioned on top of the head from ear to ear. When I placed the headband around the back area of my head-with the cannula adjusted in my nose-it was much more comfortable to use. Great price-AND free shipping This same item costs up to $40+ elsewhere. You really should carry the replacement parts though!! I think that's where you would make money on this item. The parts are VERY DIFFICULT to find-which is ridiculous if you think about it. If you sell an item that gets worn & funky with use-you should carry the parts the patient needs in order to continue using it. It goes INSIDE YOUR NOSE!!

  • Oxyarm Plus

    Initially, I had a hard time getting the headset adjusted to fit my Mom properly. After spending a little time and patience in bending the pieces, it now fits and works perfectly!!! I do see where others would give up or where it just wouldn't work for some. We lucked up! Still could use some tweaks based on other customer reviews. Has the potential of becoming an outstanding product.

  • For hearing aids a must.

    It took me about 5 min. to set it up for use, yes I can see where some would have problems with it. It does move around some but if adjusted right this is not a problem, I can see where a large amount of hair might be a problem but if placed right that is not a problem. I use two BTE hearing aids and this is great no more problems with tangled lines and hearing aids, you do need to change to standard cannula for night time that should not be a problem.

  • Horrible Product

  • Hard to position nose piece

    I have to admit... we regret buying this cannula. We figured for the price, we'd at least try it out. My dad was looking for something that wouldn't irritate his ears. The nasal piece is very difficult to bend and position correctly into the nostrils. My dad immediately hated it. There's another product out there that goes around the forehead, but it's much pricier and we don't even want to take a chance on that. So, I guess it'll remain the old-fashioned way. Sound like an invention just begging to be invented!

  • No more sore ears

    Tired of catching my tubing on everything and having my ears "torn off" by the typical bolo style cannula, plus just the constant weight of dragging 50 feet of tubing and sore ears, I thought this may be the solution. I've been using the product for a little over a week and, so far, it's performing as anticipated. It did take some time to get it adjusted and "formed" to fit, but once done it's set. My O2 stats are staying in the 90's, even though the cannula doesn't go directly into my nostrils, and should I catch on something the head band slips but there's no pulling on my poor ears. I haven't tried it for sleeping. I think it would be off my head in the first 5 minutes of sleep. Bonus - headband keeps my hair off my face.

  • Easiest to use

    This ball cap type oxygen unit is so much easier for my dad to use than the typical kind. He has hearing aids, glasses and the extra bands around his ears were just TOO much. With the OxyArm unit, he has less to deal with. It is also easier to put on and take off. Doesn't work for overnight, but then the glasses and hearing aids are gone so not a problem. Also the price is the best I could find anywhere on the internet

  • Head band with nasal cannula

    The head band idea seemed like a good idea. Behind my ears had become raw from being rubbed by the oxygen tubing. I found it pretty much impossible to get the unit adjusted so that the nose inserts were centered in my nose comfortably. I went back to using a standard cannula with foam pieces in the ear area. A good idea but needs more adjustment possibilities. Will probably work well for some people with the right head shape.

  • Nice alternative

    This is a nice alternative or for people who cant get the standard cannula tubing over their ears for some reason. It does take a bit of trial and error to get the cannula to fit properly in front of and up your nose. It seems like it might pop out of your nose easily.

    Initially I had a problem figuring out how to wear this device. There were no instructions that came with the product, and I did not realize that the extension tubing could be bent in place. Of course one could not use this product while sleeping, and the slightest tug pull it off your head. I found it no more comfortable than the standard over the ears equipment. Just not for me.

    I am surprised that I really like this item. Generally I get a headache from clips/headbands/etc. With this product, no headache. Pretty comfortable. It took a few tries to adjust properly. My trick was to bend it straightish near the nose cannulas then just adjust the arm as needed. The headband does move when doing certain physical activities.
