Eight vs. Purple: The Ultimate Mattress Battle

With so many mattresses out there, how do you know if Eight Smart Mattress is the one for you? Well, we've made it easy for you by giving you an in-depth and honest comparison so you can make a smart decision regarding your sleep! Today we're comparing Eight with Purple. 

Let's Compare


The Eight Smart Mattress is a one of a kind mattress that combines ultimate comfort with sleep technology. Eight’s four layers of premium high-density foam provide unparalleled support. The foam is specially designed to offer bounce and comfort while ensuring a cool temperature. What really sets Eight apart from its competitors is the technology. The mattress comes with a smart cover and sleep tracker that measures your sleep and gives you insight on your sleeping habits. By learning about your sleep patterns, you will improve your sleep and wake up feeling refreshed and ready to take on the day! In addition, Eight is the only mattress that has a bed warming feature, a smart alarm, and full smart home integration - all controlled and customized from the tip of your finger.

The Eight mattress falls at a 6 out of 10 on the firmness scale, which means it’s not too firm and not too soft. It offers dynamic support and contouring comfort without sacrificing breathability or resilience.


The Purple mattress sits 9.5 inches thick and is built from three layers of foam with the top layer being the company’s patented hyper-elastic polymer. The mattress uses a ‘smart grid’ design to keep things cool and relieve pressure. However, with only three layers of foam, the mattress may not offer enough support for heavier sleepers. At $1099 for a queen mattress, Purple is also more expensive than most.


Keep cool AND comfortable 

The Eight Smart Mattress has four layers of high-density foam. Our top layer is a 2-inch reactive poly foam that bounces like latex but feels like foam. This way, you'll have the comfort of a top foam layer, but you won't overheat. The unique poly foam is designed to keep sleepers cool and provide the initial level of comfort for the sleeper. Unlike Eight, Purple does not have a top layer of foam.


What do the experts say?

They love it! 

Sleepopolis recommends this mattress for sleepers who want to improve the quality of their sleep and achieve a great night's sleep. The unique four layers of foam create a well-balanced mattress that has just the right amount of sinkage and hug without ever feeling stuck. 

Mattress Insider says "it's a good mattress for anyone looking for that nice medium feel, somebody that wants a little more bounce than what you'll find on a memory foam, it's easy to adjust positions, and it has very good motion transfer reduction, and slept cool as well."
