The Brooklyn Bedding Aurora mattress is a hybrid mattress that really excels with cooling and conforming. Hybrid mattresses are a wonderful choice for people looking for the benefits of foam but don’t want to give up the bounce and responsiveness of coils. Brooklyn Bedding is a mattress manufacturer which means they can be very competitive on price but maintain quality and features.

The Aurora mattress is their latest addition which comes in three different firmness levels. Soft, medium and firm. You can read about the all foam Brooklyn Bedding mattress here. This mattress also known as the Brooklyn Signature comes in three firmness levels.

Overview and Opening the Brooklyn Aurora Mattress

This mattress comes with a 120-night free trial and free shipping. This will give you plenty of time to decide if the mattress is a good fit for you and if not, it’s easy to return.

Below is a video overview of the Aurora Mattress. As you can see it has a fair amount of sink. For this review, I received the soft version of the Brooklyn Aurora.

Construction of the Brooklyn Bedding Aurora Mattress

All firmness levels of the Aurora Mattress come with 3 layers of foam at the top followed by a spring unit then a base layer of foam. They created different firmnesses by adjusting the firmness of the foam.

My Brooklyn Bedding Aurora Mattress Findings

The Soft version of the Aurora mattress feels wonderful. Not too foamy and not too springy. It just feels like a great mattress. By offering three different firmness options they are able to really play to peoples preferences instead of just trying to hit the lowest common denominator.

Here’s a picture of how much you can expect the mattress to sink. This is a 14 lb. bowling ball which is a bit heavier than the typical head.

A nice touch is that they have stitched handles on the side. This makes it easy to rotate or move your mattress.

Aurora Mattress Handles

Here’s a video shot in slow motion to show motion transfer on the Aurora. I am especially impressed with how this handled. Notice that the fish bowling ball didn’t roll towards the other ball.

Here’s a closeup shot of the cover. It is very cool to the touch and has a nice clean look and design.

Aurora Mattress Phase Change Cover

Brooklyn Bedding uses a technology called, TitanCool™ to keep the mattress cool to the touch and help you fall asleep faster. Here’s a video showing how fast heat dissipates from the top layer of the mattress.


My Brooklyn Bedding Aurora Recommendation

The Aurora mattress is priced a little higher than other hybrid mattresses I have reviewed but it also incorporates the latest technology including a very generous amount of phase change material to cool the top layer of the mattress.

The mattress not only feels great but it looks great too. Coming in at 13.5 inches it is thick enough to where you don’t have to worry about bottoming out and it will work well with your sheets. Most sheets are designed to accommodate extra thick mattresses and when you put them on a 10-inch mattress, you get a lot of extra material making the bed look messy.

The Aurora strikes a happy medium which makes your sheets and bed look great as well as feels great.

Brooklyn Bedding Aurora vs. Signature

To begin with, let’s discuss the Brooklyn Bedding Aurora mattress. Pioneered as the epitome of high-end luxury, it’s designed for those seeking the utmost comfort and cooling capabilities. It uses a proprietary TitanCool technology in its surface layer, designed to moderate body temperature throughout the night. The result is a remarkably cool, comfortable sleep experience, making it a perfect choice for those who tend to run hot in their sleep. Beyond its cooling properties, Aurora utilizes a multi-layer foam construction with a core of 8-inch Quantum Edge pocketed coils, which promise superior responsiveness, excellent pressure relief, and durable edge support.

The Brooklyn Bedding Signature, on the other hand, is touted as the brand’s most popular mattress, a hybrid model blending foam and coils to offer an appealing blend of support, comfort, and cooling. The Signature features an inch-thick layer of quilted, gel memory foam on the surface for immediate contouring and cooling, followed by two layers of responsive foam, and a 6-inch base of Ascension pocketed coils. This construction provides a blend of contouring comfort, pressure relief, and supportive bounce.

In terms of firmness, the Aurora mattress comes in three levels: Soft, Medium, and Firm, while the Signature offers options in Soft, Medium, and Firm, giving sleepers a fair amount of customization to choose the right feel for their specific needs.

Price-wise, the Aurora is more expensive than the Signature due to its advanced cooling technology and more luxurious construction. However, it’s essential to remember that the best mattress depends largely on individual sleep preferences, budget, and lifestyle.

5 thoughts on “Brooklyn Bedding Aurora Mattress Review”

  1. Why is there no rating posted for the Aurora? Also, what about off gassing when it was unpackaged, was there any smell?

    • The Aurora (medium firm) is a much softer mattress than the Ojai. The Aurora has a smooth surface that is cool to the touch that uses a phase change material. The Ojai also has a layer of latex while the Aurora does not.

  2. I’ve been sleeping on the Aurora medium for about a month. For the first week it was the most comfortable sleep I had had in years. But then I noticed I was waking up nearly every night. I realized eventually it was because I was very close to falling off the bed, or my dog had just fallen off again. The edge support is just terrible. And the cooling surface is exceptionally slippery. I wonder if there’s a mattress with a similar feeling in terms of comfort, but better edge support?
