Comfortable and YES, it is adjustable!
Have been using happily ever since I discovered them several years ago. For those who find the nasal prongs uncomfortable, they're easy to trim with a pair of scissors, which decreases the angle of the prongs. A user mentioned getting headaches from the side pieces pressing on his temple. I lengthen the sides until the ends are long enough to rest behind my ears and that is quite comfortable. As far as bending the arm for the cannula, you must over-bend when you are not wearing them. It is also helpful to hold them under hot running water. They will hold their shape once you get it right for y

Try it - sensitive skin users will like this
This is a good idea. Sensitive skin users and anyone annoyed by plastic tubing behind their ears should try it to see if they like it. The headband is comfortable and easy to adjust. The nose piece tubing should be sold separately so we can re-use the headband and the nostril inserts could be made in different sizes to suit the user. I slept with it and had no problems but the headband pushed the nostril piece during my sleep and only one side was in my nose -- but I like that I had no plastic tubing pressing on my cheeks. Also the hard nose piece interfered slightly with drinking coffee becau

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

Love the concept!
I love the concept of this alternative to the traditional nasal oxygen cannula! It's nice to give the ears and face a break during the day. Also, the headset format looks kind of high-tech and cool. There are just a few issues with this device that kept me from giving it 5 stars. First, even on its most retracted setting, the pads on the headband hit right where the arms of my glasses sit. So if you wear glasses, be aware that you might need to wear the headband sitting more toward the back of your head than on top (and adjust the arm accordingly). Second, the nostril prongs seem to be set far

Okay
Definitely not for overnight sleeping. First day it stayed in place. Not so much afterwards. Mom has long hair, putting it in a ponytail helped to keep the headband in place. Doesn't work well when resting, only when sitting in an upright position.

Amazing!!!
My dad has been on oxygen since June due to covid and his ears have gotten absolutely destroyed from the tubing going over them and also combine with his mask and glasses. His poor ears!! I was a little skeptical about this Ill be honest - it just seemed almost too simple. And maybe the headband would eventually hurt after an hour or so? But it works literally perfectly!!! I am so pleased!!!

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 & fu

It's wonderful but it could be a little wider, it was too tight.
I had to heat the headband and stretch it some because it was squeezing too tight. Other than that it is very pleasing to wear. It's like freedom compared to the regular one.

Relief for the ears!
This was an excellent idea to keep the cannula hose off the ears and the ability to position the prongs so they are not sticking up your nose! It takes some getting accustomed to adjusting the arm so it fits just right, in fact I spend a lot of time adjusting because the hose keeps pulling it away when I move my head. I just lost one of the foam pads that are on three points of the head unit. That is one bad thing; another is, you're supposed to replace the cannula every 3 weeks or so, but the company does not have replacement end pieces. They should also offer a 4' cannula; I'm always getting

canula did not fit my head
I played around with the first one trying to get it to fit until it lost the pressure to stay up. I have been afraid to ruin the second one I bought so I think I need help trying to figure out how to brnd the nose piece to fit my head. Poor investment on my part.

A little pricey
I do like that it's a different from the regular one, but I still think it's very pricey! I'm hoping someone will come up with one that's a little softer and maybe that goes around the neck as opposed to round the head but unfortunately for me I get headaches when I have things on my head for long periods of time so but it would be nice if you guys could lower the price so you a person can buy more than one

It's great - for my purposes...
I was looking for something that would give my ears and nose a rest while still getting O2. This works great for that purpose. I wanted to get O2 "in the vicinity" of my nose - not all the way in. My nose is always running from the assault of ice cold air. I've tried humidifiers, but then I always get water up my nose. So I went looking for the type of thing that airline pilots use. This is difficult to figure out. Remember that there is a wire in the tubing to allow you to position it around your face. It does take a bit of work to get it right. I am on a relatively low dose of O2, so the del

Good in principle...less good in practice
The concept is good, but the materials and implementation leaves things to be desired. 1. The adjustment range is not enough...cannot extend the temple pieces far enough. 2. The pads on the temple pieces and the top are not large enough to be sufficient, and should be replaceable with supplied extra pads. 3. The cannula arm can be bent...but most would be afraid of breaking it. Perhaps a softer material anchored to or threaded on a bendable metal wire would be better.

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?

Awesome Product!
As a lady concerned about her appearance, I was thrilled to fine the "headband" cannula option. It takes some adjustment, but is far preferable to the other nasal cannula. Frankly, I didn't want to look like an elderly person, even though at my age of 67 I am considered one. I, of course, wear the other cannula at night. I'm sorry others have had such problems adjusting to the headband. My grandchildren think it makes me look like a rock star! Thank you for such a wonderful product.

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.

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'

small head syndrome
I have a small head. I have learned to work with it in most cases. this however, has to be worn on the BACK of my head and behind the ears in order to make the cannula, even after bending all the way possible, reach my nose. Otherwise, it's conceptually great. I need better way to position. The rest would work exactly as proposed IF the headgear could be worn properly

Great idea!
Great idea for those who are forced to use oxygen constantly, and the original look - I have been using this device for about 15 years - thanks!But it is a pity that in spite of numerous critical reviews, you do not improve the design, namely: 1) the plug inserted into the nose should have a stiffer construction so that it can be adjusted, since the noses are different for everyone ...)), i.e. inserted metal wire - should reach the very end. 2) but the head part should be softer, with the possibility of adjusting the clamping pressure, since the lower round side parts in contact with the skin

Not made for a mans head
Shipping was great product worthless. My father lost his ear to cancer and recently started needing 24/7 oxygen. I thought the product would save the side of his face being taped daily. Very hard to adjust. Could never get it to actually stay in his nose. Headband can be adjusted but not for a mans head. Very tight. I tried to donate it at the rehab facility and they said throw it away.

Great alternative to cannula!
I'm on oxygen therapy due to emphysema, and was looking for an alternative to cannulas around the house and at work. This fits the bill. It's much more comfortable and doesn't make me look as much like a hospital patient. I found it simple to set up - it just takes a few minutes to adjust to your face and how you would like it to sit on your head. Once it's set up, it's great. It's also pretty sturdy, if not abused. I think it's an excellent product at a fair price.

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!

Only one issue with it.
I use oxygen 24/7. I use a C-pap with oxygen hooked to it at night, so I don't have the problem others are having trying to sleep with it. The issue I have is that I can't find the disposable cannula Tips to replace the used one. You have to buy a Whole new set up and they are not cheap. They need to sell the replacement parts for those of us on fixed incomes that can't afford new set ups very often.

Good but could be better
The part that goes over the head isn't adjustable. The arm part comes straight, not bent around to be in front of the face and to get it tocthe nose you have to bend the breathing tube itself. Works but really think it should be the arm itself that bends.

An effective innovative improvement over the common cannulae
Performs as well as described, easy to use and fit, no problem wiping ones nose or rinsing the mouth.The oxygen supply is dependable, I added a flexible strap for the back of the head to stabilize the accessory.The only thing that I find to be a disadvantage is having to replace the OxyArm and refit a new one every so many (10) days instead of strictly the Cannula part of the Arm. Easy engineering.

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.

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.

Better Than The Regular Cannulas
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.

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.

This is a blessing, I don't know who invented it but its great, I wear a hearing aid an also wear glasses and then on top of that with the regular oxygen tubing, you can only put so much behind your ear, the cannula was always falling off so this head band is a miracle, I love and I bought two one for my wheel chair portable tank and one for my concentrator.
