The low price is a strong selling point for SnoreDoc. Every snorer dreams of a solution to their problem, but not everyone is willing or able to shell out $100, or more, for anti snoring devices they just don't know will work. Even if there is a money-back guarantee, if you are on a tight budget, you may not want to risk having to wait for a refund just so you can buy a different product.
If this sounds like you, and you are sold on SnoreDoc because of the price, I urge you to consider ZQuiet for a few different reasons.
SnoreDoc is $39.99, which is a great price. Plus, it has free shipping and a money-back guarantee. Although, I dare you to try to find return or contact information on SnoreDoc's website before you put too much faith in the return policy. SnoreDoc Coupons are often available for discounts.
ZQuiet is $79.95. Before you panic, keep reading. Although it is more, you don't have to pay that amount upfront. Instead of trying a product and then shipping it back and waiting for a return, doesn't it make sense to be able to just try it first? All you have to pay with ZQuiet is $9.95 for shipping. Your credit card does not get charged the $79.95 for 35 days. So, you have all that time to decide if it is the right product for you. If not, ship it back, and you won't pay another cent. Plus, ZQuiet has an A-rating with the Better Business Bureau, and it is known for its great customer service. The phone number and address are readily available. ZQuiet promo codes are also available on occasion.
SnoreDoc and ZQuiet are both mandibular advancement devices (MADs), but they are very different products.
- Material - ZQuiet is made of a thermoplastic elastomer that contains no BPA or latex. SnoreDoc is made out of thermoplastic, but there is no mention of it being BPA- or latex-free.
- Fit - ZQuiet is ready-to-wear right out-of-the-box. SnoreDoc allows you to get a custom fit using an easy boil-and-bite technique. Typically, my vote would be in favor of a product that can be custom fit. However, ZQuiet is an exception. If you find it is a bit too bit, it can be trimmed with scissors and smoothed with a nail file.
- Profile - If SnoreDoc was significantly more streamlined it would have a lot going for it. It is a very bulky mouthpiece, and definitely too large for a smaller mouth. ZQuiet has a very low profile design. It takes up minimal space in your mouth and it is incredibly comfortable.
- Breathing Hole - ZQuiet blows most MADs away in this department. Its design allows for easy breathing through your mouth. SnoreDoc has a breathing hole, but it is incredibly tiny. Not only is it hard to breathe through; the air that does pass through creates a whistling noise. If you have sinuses, nasal polyps, or a deviated septum, or if you are like me and have bad allergies at certain times throughout the year, you will find it significantly easier to breathe in ZQuiet.
- Distinguishing Characteristics - SnoreDoc does not really have a standout feature it is known for. ZQuiet has Living Hinge Technology. Unlike other devices that are stationary, ZQuiet allows you to move your mouth. In fact, you can even talk and drink water while wearing it.
- Care - Both mouthpieces are easy to care for, as cleaning can be done with soap and water. They also both come with a storage case.
- Comfort - In my opinion, ZQuiet wins this category by a long shot. My jaw was extremely sore with SnoreDoc. I barely needed time to get used to ZQuiet.
- Safety - ZQuiet is made in America and all materials are sourced from within the country. It is also cleared by the United States Food and Drug Administration. SnoreDoc claims to be FDA-cleared. However, it also claims to be accredited by the Better Business Bureau, but the company is not listed on the BBB website. It is also unclear where SnoreDoc is made or where the materials are sourced from.
