Find out who came out on top in our side-by-side mattress comparison of the internationally-awarded Emma Original mattress and the popular Original Koala mattress.
With multiple international awards from independent testing agencies combined with its relatively lower prices, the Emma mattress has become synonymous with value for money the world over. But how does it compare with its Australian counterparts?
With its cheeky humour and millennial branding, Koala has managed to become one of the best-selling mattress in a box brands on the Australian market. But when it comes to putting their money where there mouth is, how does the Koala mattress measure up?
The Emma and Koala mattress both offer the essential characteristics one should look for in a mattress: comfort, breathability and support. However the German-made Emma mattress foam build does feature a more engineered construction with ergonomically-cut grooves in its support layer that encourages optimal pressure relief targeted to different areas of the body. In addition, its machine-washable cover with handles scores the Emma mattress extra points for the added convenience.
The Australian-made Koala mattress does however have the upper hand when it comes to fast delivery times and has a trial period with 20 more days than the usual. Definitely a consideration when you are in need of a new mattress ASAP! While the extra trial time does make a bit of difference, it’s not a game changer. As you’ll find that 100 days is enough time to get your body used to a new mattress (recommended 21-28 days).
Overall, the Emma mattress offers great quality at an unbeatable price and is well deserving of its top spot. While its still got some room to grow in terms of service, there’s no doubt it’s one of the best mattresses in a box out there!
