The Quietest of the Quiet – Whisper Quiet Oxygen Concentrators

One of the main things many people consider when purchasing an oxygen concentrator, is how much noise it will make. You don't want to bother anyone or have your oxygen concentrator bother you while you are trying to do things like watch TV, read a book, have a conversation with someone, or sleep if you need to use your oxygen concentrator while you sleep.

For this reason, we've rounded up user reviews of the extraordinarily quiet stationary and portable oxygen concentrators on the market right now. Naturally, many of the bigger stationary oxygen concentrators will be louder than the smaller ones, but the larger ones offer a higher dose of oxygen that some people require.

You should never let the noise level bother if you need a higher dose of oxygen – getting the among you need is much more important than the noise level. These are the quietest oxygen concentrators in their size categories and dosage ranges.

Respironics EverFlo Q

"The EverFlo from Respironics is wonderful because it's only as loud as 40 decibels, and it's oxygen dosage settings go from 0.5 to 5 LPM (liters per minute) in 0.5 increments. It's also one of the newest and most energy efficient stationary oxygen concentrators on the market today. Being both smaller and newer means it has a very current and high tech system, which makes it more efficient and quieter."

Respironics SimplyGo

"The SimplyGo features both pulse dose oxygen from 12 ml/min to 72 ml/min, and continuous flow oxygen from 0.5 to 2 LPM in 0.5 increments. This is a pretty great range for a portable oxygen concentrator that only weighs 10 lbs. At the highest setting, it hums softly at 43 decibels. That's only as loud as a refrigerator when it kicks on."

Inogen One G3

"The G2 gets no louder than 38 decibels, and weighs just 7.25 lbs. If offers pulse dose oxygen settings from 1 to 6. This is a great range for people who need a medium setting of pulse dose oxygen, and a very low noise level! This is a wonderful concentrator for those who need to use it while they sleep, and if you plan on taking a lot of trips away from home."

SeQual eQuinox

"The Equinox is one of the newest and best portable oxygen concentrators on the market, so naturally it's also going to be one of the most quiet. It has a continuous flow range of 0.5 to 3 LPM in 0.5 increments, and a high pulse dose range. The loudest it will get is 37 decibels."

Invacare Perfecto 2

"Just slightly louder than the EverFlo Q, the Perfecto 2 from Invacare offers the same dosage setting range and is one very efficient and sturdy stationary oxygen concentrator. It's only 43 decibels on the highest setting, so you'll know that it won't bother you or anyone else in the room."

    How can I get information about the EverFlo portable oxygen concentrator without a salesperson contacting me.? I do not want any phone calls! I have the Caire FreeStyle Comfort portable but it is way too loud. I do not like communicating with the health supply store/company I am renting it from. Any info pertaining to renting, buying, and servicing would greatly be appreciated.

    Thank you,
