If anyone is struggling with the decision of welding masks just for for an Esab sentinel either air fed or not, they are great.
I had a Speedglas /3M one years ago (it was new, very little used) it was terrible it accentuated the fan noise through the delivery hose it was like what they call white noise! l sold the breathing unit and took the snorkel off the helmet an sold that, still got the helmet. :)
