The Zaahn mattress feel great whether you like your mattress medium or firm. That’s because you get two options on each side of the mattress. Zaahn recognizes that many times partners significantly differ in their firmness preferences. Instead of having to buy or sleep in different beds, Zaahn solves the issue by housing separate sides that can each be flipped then zipped into the same cover for a cohesive feel.


While Zaahn isn’t the first to attempt this type of customization, they have done a great job with a very competitive price point at $849 for a queen.  The join a growing list of online mattress companies offering a generous free trial period of 100 days where you can return it within that time period for a full refund if not satisfied. This includes free pickup and free returns.

Below is a video of me on the mattress and demonstrating how easy it really is to change firmness levels. You’ll notice in the video that the Zaahn mattress has a quality zipper system and the mattress ticking fits very well around the mattress. Not only does this make adjusting the mattress easy but it also make it look neat and clean.

Below is a video created by Zaahn mattress that illustrates how it works. The firmness levels are close so that you won’t notice much of a transition from one side to the other. This makes the bed feel like one solid piece and will still keep you connected to your partner.



Below are the specifications of the Zaahn mattress as listed on their website:

Medium density foam

Providing 6-inches of central support—totalling 10-inches of deep comfort.

Open cell memory foam

Constructed to create an ambient temperature—perfect environment for a cool, deep, sleep.

VISCOSE from Bamboo Stretch Cover

Keeps the mattress fresh and the surface airy and cool to sleep on.

My Zaahn Mattress Findings

I was really impressed with the construction of the cover. Here’s a closeup of the zipper system.

The firmness levels aren’t drastically different. I found that the softer side is a medium firmness while the firm side is a true firm. Below are videos illustrating the bounce on both sides of the mattress.

Here’s the soft side of the mattress:

And here’s the firm side of the Zaahn:

Below is a video showing heat retention on the mattress. This mattress was sort of middle of the road for heat retention. I didn’t notice it to sleep hot but there was also no dramatic cooling effect. People concerned about sleeping hot shouldn’t have any problems with this mattress with either side they choose.

Under the cover of the Zaahn mattress you can see how each layer works. The topof the mattress is the soft side.


It’s clear that a lot of effort went into designing this mattress. Looks and feels great. I strongly recommend this mattress for people looking for a medium firm mattress that can be made slightly softer. It provides excellent support and is one of the best mattresses out there for isolating motion transfer. This is because the foam is dense and the mattress is split in two. Any movements by your partner will be mostly isolated to their half of the mattress.

This is the best priced customized mattress I have reviewed and so would make the perfect guest room bed as well.
