SinuSonic Review: Does Sinus Therapy Actually Work?

SinuSonic Review: Does Sinus Therapy Actually Work?

Read our Editorial Guidelines to learn more about what makes our site the premier resource for online health information.

SinuSonic is a physical device used to improve nasal breathing and relieve congestion due to sinus issues. The brand claims that with just two minutes of therapy twice a day, users can “overcome your nasal congestion challenges – allowing you to breathe easier. And feel better.”

But is SinuSonic proven to work, or are these just marketing claims? How does the device actually work in the body? Is it safe? And how do real users rate and describe the effects of SinuSonic?

In this article we’ll answer all of these questions and more as we explain how SinuSonic works and analyze its underlying technology based on medical studies to give our take on whether or not it’s likely to be effective.

We’ll discuss the potential for side effects and feature unsponsored customer reviews of the device.

How Does SinuSonic Work?

Sinusonic is a combined positive expiratory pressure (PEP) and acoustic vibration device.

The first mechanism of action (PEP) works by clearing mucus from the airway through targeted pressure changes, as we documented in our review of another PEP device called AirPhysio.

Acoustic vibrations may be therapeutic for a range of nasal diseases, according to a medical review published in the International Forum of Allergy & Rhinology. The study authors concluded the following:

“Vibration technology used in patients with sinonasal pathology has been shown to improve pain, sinonasal symptoms, and radiologic outcome measures in small studies.”

Both of the mechanisms of action employed by SinuSonic appear to have research backing, and there may be a synergistic effect (the combined benefit from both may be greater than either individually).

A video from the brand’s official YouTube page documents how to use the device:

Is SinuSonic Proven to Work?

SinuSonic has been studied in several clinical trials.

A 2020 clinical trial examined the effects of SinuSonic on nasal congestion. After five weeks of treatment, nasal congestion scores decreased by over 50% and 87.5% of patients recommended the device to others.

A clinical trial published in the Medical Devices journal reported similarly positive results. Trial participants experienced significant improvements in ease-of-breathing and nasal congestion scores.

Based on the available research, we consider SinuSonic likely to be effective for the treatment of nasal congestion, and it’s a sign of a high-quality brand to have clinical research published in legitimate, peer-reviewed medical journals.

But how do real users rate and describe the effects of the device? We’ll feature unsponsored customer reviews in the next section of our article.

Real People Try SinuSonic

A YouTube creator named Peter von Panda reviewed SinuSonic and did a live product demo:

A YouTube creator named “kpboix99” shares his pros and cons of the device:

Does SinuSonic Cause Side Effects?

One of the consumers many consumers have when purchasing a medical device is whether or not it may cause side effects.

The SinuSonic appears to be non-invasive and low-risk.

Neither of the clinical trials on SinuSonic reported any side effects.

According to the brand’s FAQ page, only 2.5% of trial participants reported any pain or discomfort.

This is about as low-risk as you can get for a medical device, and appears favorable when compared to the risk profile of over-the-counter (OTC) decongestants, which cause “frequent” systemic adverse reactions according to a 2006 medical review.

We do not consider SinuSonic likely to cause side effects in otherwise healthy individuals.

Where to Buy SinuSonic for the Best Price

SinuSonic is sold at a variety of online retailers. Here’s a price breakdown at the time of publishing this article:

EveryMarket: $100.91 (link)

Brand website: $64.95 (free shipping, link)

Amazon: $64.95 (free shipping, link)

SinuSonic is priced the same for a one-time purchase on the brand’s website and Amazon, but the brand’s website currently offers a better subscription price.

Real Customers Review SinuSonic

Amazon is a better resource for honest customer reviews than a brand’s website in our opinion.

SinuSonic has been reviewed over 750 times on Amazon, with an average review rating of 3.1 out of 5 stars.

The top positive review from a verified purchaser is written by a user named “conductor_cronk” who gives SinuSonic a 5/5 star rating and claims it improves quality of life:

“Literally after just one use I would say my ability to breathe through my nose improved by 30 to 40% after using it again the next day I would say I could breathe through my nose at least 60 to 70% better than before! I found myself sleeping better, and more soundly as well. I’ve had the machine for about a week and use it multiple times per day and I would say I’m up to at least 80% clear of sinus swelling.”

The top negative review from a verified purchaser comes from a user named “Steven E. Hobbs” who gives the device a 1/5 star rating and claims it’s a waste of money:

“Well, it NEVER worked for me. It's just an overpriced air hose. My ENT said I should have known better. Do the sinus rinses as he suggested.”

SinuSonic has an average review rating of 3.6 out of 5 stars on Google, and 3.3 out of 5 stars on Facebook.

Pros and Cons of SinuSonic

Here are the pros and cons of SinuSonic in our opinion:

Pros:

  • Clinically shown to work
  • Affordable
  • Should improve congestion
  • Should improve ease-of-breathing
  • Non-invasive
  • Better safety profile than oral decongestants
  • Unlikely to cause side effects

Cons:

  • Mediocre customer reviews

Conclusion

SinuSonic is the most impressive nasal decongestant device we’ve reviewed on Illuminate Health, given its clinical backing.

This device has been shown in two independent clinical trials to reduce nasal congestion and be side-effect-free.

Oral decongestants can have negative effects on cardiovascular function and we consider SinuSonic to be a better alternative.

This device costs around $65 and lasts six months, which makes it quite affordable on a per-use basis. Amazon and the brand’s website currently have the best prices.

The only downside of SinuSonic is the relatively mediocre online customer reviews, but it’s not a huge sample size, and we’d expect these reviews to trend in a more favorable direction given how effective this device appears to be based on research studies.
