The Muse mattress comes in three different comfort levels so you can choose the one that best suits your preference. A queen size retails for $900. What sets this mattress apart from the other all foam mattresses in the market is that they incorporate a unique technology in their mattress cover. It’s called Cold Wire Technology and it definitely works.


You can order the Muse mattress direct from their website which is actually They offer a sleep personality quiz that guides you to the ideal Muse mattress and pillow firmness for yoru sleep type. Below is a video of me on the mattress explaining some of the features and benefits.

In addition to the mattress, I also received a nice kit to help me relax which includes a coffee cup and a reusable tea bag. A very nice touch.




According to the Muse website, the construction of the medium firmness mattress which I received are as follows. I was especially impressed with the cold wire technology in the cover which is cool to the touch and absorbs body heat.

Responding to a plethora of complaints relating to temperature, we went overboard by bringing you a phase-changing cooling fabric called Cold Wire Plus that keeps you cool and comfortable throughout the night. Its unique temperature absorbing properties help to moderate overheating for those that are prone to sleeping hot.

A 2″ layer of 4 lbs. density memory foam creates a durable, adaptable, and comfortable layer that’s delivered in three levels of firmness.

An 8″ layer of 2 lbs. density foam creates a high-quality, sturdy foundation that provides an even level of support for the mattress.


Sleeping on the medium firm muse was a great experience. The density of the top layer of foam feels similar to that of the Novosbed. It is very dense which provides great pressure relief and support. The only trade off is that it is a little slower to recover. A common complaint among the dense memory foam mattresses is that they tend to sleep hot. Muse addresses this issue head on with their cold wire technology.

Here’s a video using my thermal camera to help illustrate heat dissipation on the mattress.

You’ll notice that in about 1 minute the imprint on my had has just about completely faded. This is one of the fastest cooling covers I have tested.

The Muse mattress also handles motion transfer very well. Again, because of the dense foam, it will absorb motion well and keep your partner from waking you. Here’s a video of me dropping a 14lb. bowling ball on the mattress:

Below is a video that shows the inside of the Muse mattress and how each layers reacts.

This mattress will sink slightly but not as much as most foam mattresses. I imagine the softer version would sink more and the firm version would sink even less than the medium. Because it doesn’t sink as much, you will have less issues with heat retention.



The Muse mattress is a great choice for hot sleepers that crave that traditional foam feel. Often a trade off for dense foam is heat retention. This mattress is made in the USA and I noticed little off gassing. This may be because they let the mattress breathe a bit before wrapping and shipping.

  1. Muse is weird. I was interested in their mattress in spite of them being made in china and not even certipur. I was unsure if I wanted the medium or firm. Customer service when I called said layers in medium and firm are the same except the 2nd layer. So I asked what are the second layer specs and she wouldn’t tell me. Said someone would call me back they never did. What’s the big mystery? It’s not the first time I have asked them this

  2. Love my Muse! I ordered a firm king-size mattress and couldn’t be happier. The fabric really is cool and keeps me comfortable all night long.
