Hyphen sent me their mattress free for review. What sets the Hyphen mattress apart from many of the mattress in a box offerings is that they have their own mattress factory. This offers many advantages but I think the best advantage is that they can keep costs down and experiment more to get it right. They claim to have created over 1,000 different test beds while trying to perfect the Hyphen mattress. Below are my findings.
Ordering from Hyphen is very straightforward and is done via their website. They have chat functionality so you can chat with a real person if you have any questions about the product. The mattress should arrive in about a week after placing your order and will arrive in a box. Below is what the box will look like.
They Hyphen is constructed as follows:
2” 3.5lb custom formulated Hyphen Foam comfort layer
2” 2.0lb buoyant transition layer
6” 1.8lb orthopedic support base
According to Hyphen, additional features include 2 layers of antimicrobial protection, built-in to both the Hyphen Foam layer and the mattress cover itself. This protects against dust mites and other allergens, as well as illness causing bacteria and viruses.
Here’s a video to illustrate how the layers of the Hyphen mattress react:
You’ll notice that the top layer, the Hyphen Foam layer was designed to be responsive like latex giving you a quick recover and but also will sink and contour more than latex so you kind of get the best of both worlds.
Below is a picture to illustrate sinkage:
Below is a video that illustrated how it will react:
Here it is again in real time:
Finally the Hyphen was designed to keep you cool as well as comfortable. According to Hyphen they do this in 4 ways:
- Open cell memory foam, which is fairly standard among new memory foam mattresses.
- Ventilated top layer of Hyphen foam. You can see the holes in the foam top layer in the video.
- Infused copper which is starting to become more popular among foam mattresses. Copper is highly conductive which helps draw heat away from your body.
Dual-point phase change. This means it works with your body so that you don’t get too hot or too cold. Some mattresses can focus too much on cooling which then becomes uncomfortable.
My Hyphen Mattress Recommendation
The Hyphen mattress is a little on the softer end of the spectrum and is a great choice for people that don’t want too much hug in their mattress but still want good pressure relief. I appreciate the responsiveness of the mattress, especially since this is an all foam mattress. The company chose the name “Hyphen” because it is used in grammar as a link. This mattress is the link between the worlds of night and day.
