These features help with moisture drainage, heat dissipation, and enhanced ventilation throughout the mattress, keeping you cool and comfortable throughout the night.

- Not available outside Canada: The Octave Horizon mattress is not currently available outside of Canada. International shipping is currently unavailable.
- Not suitable for light-side sleepers: The Octave Horizon mattress is not suggested for light-side sleepers under 130 pounds because of its medium-firm feel, which may lack softness or plushness. Pressure points or discomfort in the shoulders and hips may occur in light-side sleepers.
Who do we Recommend the Octave Horizon for
- Hot sleepers: The Octave Horizon mattress's CryoFusionTM cooling nanofibre cover, CopperGelTM memory foam, and aerated latex layer work together to keep you cool and dry all night, preventing overheating and sweating.
- Pain relief: The Octave Horizon mattress's zoned CopperGelTM memory foam and ElastexTM foam layers adapt to your body's shape and weight, providing pressure relief, contouring, and proper spinal alignment, effectively alleviating pain in the back, neck, shoulders, hips, and other joints and muscles.
- Combination sleepers: The Octave Horizon mattress is a versatile choice for sleepers of all positions, especially those who frequently switch positions throughout the night. Its medium-firm feel offers a balance of comfort and support, making it great for back, side, and stomach sleepers.
- Back sleeping: The Octave Horizon mattress's design promotes spine alignment for back sleepers. Its medium-firm feel prevents excessive hip sinking, maintaining a neutral spine position. Varying hardness zones provide targeted support and pressure relief for the lower back, upper back, and shoulders.
Unboxing the Octave Horizon
It can be tough to set up a new mattress, but the Octave Horizon mattress is easy to set up. The mattress is compressed and rolled in a box for easy transport and maneuverability. The box is made of cardboard, and the mattress is encased in two layers of heavy-duty recycled plastic to ensure its protection.
After removing the mattress from its package, carefully unroll it onto your bed frame and cut the plastic covering. In minutes, the mattress will quickly expand to its full 14-inch size and be ready to sleep. The edges grew almost as quickly, indicating excellent corner expansion.
Unpacking and assembling the mattress should take roughly 15 minutes.
One of the best things about the Octave Horizon mattress is that it has no chemical odor. This is a typical complaint about other bed-in-a-box mattresses, but not the Octave Horizon. The mattress has a mild, non-irritating odor that dissipates after a few hours of airing out. This significantly enhances the unboxing experience.
Firmness, Feel, and Comfort For Octave Horizon
Octave Horizon Firmness
The Octave Horizon mattress has a firmness rating of 6 out of 10, with 1 being very soft and 10 being very hard. This means that the mattress is a medium-firm mattress that provides a balanced feel for most sleepers, rather than being too soft or overly firm. A luxuriant top layer contours your body and relieves pressure points, and a supporting base layer gives stability and alignment.
The Octave Horizon mattress's firmness varies depending on your body weight, sleeping position, and personal preference. Lighter sleepers who do not sink much into the mattress will generally feel firmer, but heavier sleepers who sink deeper into the mattress will feel softer. Furthermore, the mattress will be firmer for side sleepers who need more cushioning and softer for back and stomach sleepers who need more support.
Octave Horizon Feel
By combining the benefits of memory foam and latex foam, the Octave Horizon mattress provides a balanced experience. The mattress's plush top layer conforms to your body shape and weight, providing pressure relief and contouring. A supportive base layer also gives the mattress bounce and resilience, making it easier to move about and change positions.
The Octave Horizon mattress is designed to accommodate your body temperature and sleeping position. It has a cool-to-the-touch surface that wicks moisture and heat away from you all night, keeping you cool and dry.
The short response time of the Octave Horizon mattress keeps you from feeling constricted or stuck in the mattress. Low motion transfer isolates movement from one side of the bed to the other, which means fewer disruptions for you and your spouse.
Octave Horizon Comfort
The Octave Horizon mattress is intended to provide a balanced feel while also offering good cooling for a wide range of sleeping positions and body weights. When resting on the CryoFusionTM cooling nanofibre cover, you will feel cool to the touch. The ElastexTM foam layer and the CopperGelTM memory foam layer adjust to your body shape and weight, giving pressure relief and shaping. The mattress also has divided zones with varying hardness levels based on your body area, ensuring appropriate spinal alignment and comfort.
We tested the Octave Horizon mattress in several sleeping positions and were pleasantly surprised by its performance. Our reviewers, who differed in weight and sleep position, found the mattress to be comfortable and cool.
Here is some specific feedback from our reviewers:
- Side sleeper (120 lbs): “The Octave Horizon mattress is like sleeping on a cloud. The mattress is soft and silky, yet not to the point of drooping or sinking. The mattress provides adequate support for my shoulders and hips, and I experience no pressure points or soreness. While sleeping on this mattress, I never get hot or sweaty. Side sleepers will appreciate the Octave Horizon mattress.”
- Back sleeper (230 lbs): "I like the Octave Horizon mattress because it is supportive and comfortable for my back and spine." The mattress is medium-firm, which is excellent for me because I sleep on my back. The mattress adjusts to my body's shape and weight while still providing adequate support and alignment. The mattress is similarly chilly; there is no heat or wetness on it. The Octave Horizon mattress is ideal for back sleepers.”
- Stomach sleeper (160 lbs): "I like sleeping on the Octave Horizon mattress because it is cool and comfortable for my stomach and abdomen." The mattress has a medium firmness level, which is great for stomach sleepers like me. The mattress conforms to the shape and weight of my body while simultaneously preventing my hips from sinking too deeply and keeping my spine in a neutral position. The mattress is also cold; there is no heat or moisture on it. The Octave Horizon mattress is ideal for stomach sleepers.”

Constructions, Materials, and Design
Materials and Design
The Octave Horizon mattress is carefully crafted in Canada using locally sourced materials and skilled craftsmanship. Each mattress undergoes strict quality checks to ensure it meets the highest standards of comfort and performance. The mattress also adheres to environmental and social responsibility guidelines.
The Octave Horizon mattress has a sleek and modern design that fits well in any bedroom. The dark gray side panels contrast nicely with the white top cover and blue accents. The side panels also have handles for easy moving and rotating the mattress.
The Octave Horizon mattress is 14 inches tall and has five different foam layers. Each layer has a specific purpose and contributes to the overall comfort and performance of the mattress. Here is a breakdown of the layers from top to bottom:
- CryoFusionTM cooling nanofibre cover: This breathable and soft cover regulates temperature and moisture. It contains nanofibers, which generate a cooling effect when in contact with your skin, leaving you feeling refreshed and comfortable. The cover is also removable and washable for your convenience.
- CopperGelTM memory foam layer: a 2.5-inch layer of copper gel-infused memory foam. It molds and relieves pressure by conforming to your body's shape and weight. Copper gel beads are also antibacterial, which means they prevent bacteria and smells. They also aid with heat dissipation and ventilation, allowing you to stay cool and fresh.
- Aerated Latex Foam layer: an aerated latex layer is a 1.5-inch layer of natural latex foam with microscopic air holes. It gives the mattress more bounce and resilience, making it simpler to move around and change positions. It also helps with temperature and moisture control by allowing air to circulate freely across the layer.
- EcoLuxe® Cooling Gel Foam: A 2-inch layer of foam that provides comfort and cooling. It is made with less carbon than standard memory foam, which makes it more eco-friendly and reduces its environmental impact. It also has gel beads that help dissipate heat and moisture, keeping you cool and dry throughout the night. It conforms to your body shape and weight, providing pressure relief and contouring for your shoulders, back, and hips.
- Premium Elastex® Foam: A 2-inch high-density foam layer that simulates the feel of latex without the use of natural rubber. It gives the mattress firmness and endurance, as well as some cushioning and pressure relief. It also includes split sections with varying firmness levels based on your body location, ensuring proper spinal alignment and comfort.
- Multi-Zone Support Foam with Air Channels: The support foam layer is a 6-inch layer that acts as the mattress's foundation, providing structure, rigidity, edge support, and motion isolation. Increases the mattress's life. Air channels allow air circulation, keeping the mattress cool and dry. Five pressure-relief zones aid with spinal alignment and weight distribution.
Performance of Octave Horizon
The Octave Horizon mattress has excellent cooling performance. The CryoFusionTM mattress's cooling nanofiber cover keeps it cool to the touch. The aerated latex layer and the CopperGelTM memory foam layer both help to drain heat and moisture from your body, allowing you to sleep comfortably all night.
We put the Octave Horizon mattress to the test for 20 minutes to see how effectively it kept us cool.
During our cooling performance test, we observed that the Octave Horizon mattress did a fantastic job of keeping us cool.
For the first few minutes, we felt the smooth and silky fabric of the cover against our skin. While we slept, the memory foam and latex layers molded to our bodies, giving pressure relief and shape. There were no hot spots or uncomfortable spots. We felt revived and renewed after 20 minutes.
Overall, we believe the Octave Horizon mattress is a great option for people who sleep hot or live in hot climates. As a result, we gave it a rating of 4.7/5 for cooling performance.
The Octave Horizon mattress is a responsive and adaptable foam mattress. The ElastexTM foam layer and CopperGelTM memory foam layer adjust to the shape and weight of your body, providing pressure relief and comfort. The aerated latex layer and the support foam layer provide support and endurance to the mattress, as well as some bounce and resilience.
We tested the Octave Horizon mattress's responsiveness by dropping a 20-pound ball on it and waiting a few seconds for it to sink in. We timed how long it took the mattress to recover to its original shape after we removed the ball. The mattress fully recovered in around 1.2 seconds, which is extremely quick for a foam mattress. This implies the mattress reacts to your movements without being too slow or overly bouncy.
The Octave Horizon received a 4.5/5 rating from us.
The Octave Horizon mattress is designed to be very motion-isolating. This is due to the mattress's memory foam layer and support foam layer, which absorb movement and reduce motion transfer.
Two tests were used to assess the motion isolation qualities of the Octave Horizon mattress. The first test involved placing a glass of water on one side of the mattress and dropping a 20-pound ball on the other. The water did not move, indicating that the mattress effectively isolates motion.
One of our testers slept on one side of the mattress while the other tossed and turned on the other in the second test. The first tester stated that they were unaware of their partner's movements, showing the mattress's ability to prevent motion transfer.
Overall, we think the Octave Horizon mattress is a great option for those who sleep with a spouse or a pet. As a result, we gave it a rating of 4.9/5 for motion isolation.
The Octave Horizon mattress has great edge support that should be sufficient for most people. The mattress's foam layers compress slightly, although not significantly, near the borders. The 14-inch height of the mattress also provides more edge support than standard foam mattresses.
To assess the Octave Horizon mattress's edge support, we applied firm pressure to the mattress's edges and assessed how much the mattress compressed. The mattress’s edges compressed a little.
We were able to sit on the borders of the mattress without falling off. Most people are satisfied with this, but those who weigh more than 250 pounds or who sit or sleep on the edge of their bed may want more.
The Octave Horizon mattress's edge support is average overall, although it may be suitable for most people. We rated it 3.8/5 in terms of edge support.
We checked for noise by placing a 20-pound ball on top of the mattress and listening for any noises or squeaks. Nothing could be heard but the constant thump of a drop on any surface.
As a result, the movement of the Octave Horizon mattress is absolutely silent.
The Octave Horizon mattress received a 5/5 for noise isolation.
A good sex mattress should be firm, cool, and quiet, and it should have appropriate edge support.
The Octave Horizon mattress provides both comfort and responsiveness. The CopperGelTM memory foam layer and the ElastexTM foam layer conform to your body and protect you from sliding around, while the aerated latex layer and support foam layer give the mattress bounce and resilience. Couples can use the bed freely because the edge support is moderate. The medium-firm feel of the mattress, on the other hand, may suit certain couples more than others, depending on their tastes and postures.
We rate the Octave Horizon mattress 4.6/5 because we believe it provides good sex performance.
The Octave Horizon mattress was created to alleviate pressure spots across the body. The CopperGelTM memory foam layer and the ElastexTM foam layer adjust to the shape and weight of your body, giving pressure alleviation and comfort. The aerated latex layer and the support foam layer offer the mattress stability and lifespan, as well as some cushioning and pressure alleviation. In addition, the mattress is divided into sections with varying hardness levels dependent on your body area, ensuring ideal spinal alignment and comfort.
We used a pressure mapping approach in our pressure relief test to analyze the amount of pressure on various parts of the body while resting on the mattress.
The pressure map below illustrates the pressure relief test findings.
The pressure map of the Octave Horizon mattress demonstrates that it provides excellent pressure relief in the shoulders, hips, and lower back. This is due to the medium-firm feel of the mattress, which helps to balance comfort and support. As a result, people who prefer to sleep on their backs or stomachs may appreciate the Octave Horizon mattress.
The Octave Horizon mattress may not be appropriate for stomach sleepers. Side sleepers place more weight on their shoulders and hips; therefore, the mattress may appear hard or lack softness or plushness to them.
The Octave Horizon mattress relieves pressure in the majority of the body's areas. However, it may not be the best option for light-side sleepers. As a result, we gave this mattress a rating of 4.8/5 for pressure relief.
