BedInABox Customer Satisfaction Rating Comparison

BedInABox Mattress Sleep Ratings

CategoryCriteriaAdagio RatingWhat Adagio Users Say
Customer SatisfactionBased on data collection, this is an overall customer sentiment regarding the Adagio mattress.83%The Adagio by BedInABox has earned a customer satisfaction rating of 83%, which is above-average compared to other hybrids.
Durability Hybrids tend to degrade faster than other mattresses, often due to low-grade polyfoam used in the support core.GoodThe lifespan of an Adagio mattress is on par with the average hybrid — typically six to seven years.
Motion IsolationIdeally, a hybrid mattress will fall in the middle of the spectrum in terms of motion isolation: more motion transfer than memory foam or latex, but less transfer than an innerspring.FairThe Adagio’s Medium side somewhat isolates motion, but the Firm side absorbs and minimizes very little transfer.
Sex Most hybrids feature a blend softness and bounciness that many couples find conducive for sex.Very GoodThanks to it’s two-sided construction and pocketed coil support core designed to provide extra cushioning, many couples say the Adagio is very good for sex.
ConformingHybrid mattresses often provide a good balance of firmness and body-conforming, making them suitable for people who feel that memory foam is too soft and innersprings don’t relieve enough pressure.GoodThe Adagio’s conforming abilities depend on which side the sleeper chooses; the softer option conforms somewhat closely, targeting pain and pressure points, while the firmer side contours to a much lesser extent.
Temperature NeutralityHybrid mattresses tend to retain less body heat and sleep cooler than models made from memory foam or latex.GoodMany owners say that the Adagio sleeps fairly cool, particularly on the firmer side.
Off-gassingOff-gassing may occur, but most hybrids produce less odor than mattresses made exclusively of foam.FairThe Adagio produces less odor than foam models from BedInABox, but there are some complaints of persistent off-gassing smells.
Edge SupportHybrids usually provide more edge support than memory foam and latex mattresses, and are usually on par with traditional innersprings. Very GoodLike many hybrids, the Adagio is well-reinforced around the edges and there are relatively few complaints of sinkage where people sit.
NoiseHybrids tend to produce more noise than strictly foam mattresses, primarily due to the spring and coil components of the support core.GoodThe Adagio is fairly quiet, but some users report light squeaking when the mattress is bearing weight.
Ease of Moving and RotatingMattress size is an important consideration, but the average hybrid is lighter and easier to move than most traditional innerspring or foam models. FairKing and California King sizes of the Adagio can be quite heavy, but all other sizes weigh roughly 100 pounds or less.

    • Replacements or repairs due to changes in the owner’s comfort preference.
    • Burns, cuts, tears, liquid damage, stains, ‘abnormal soiling’ and other damages that do not occur during manufacturing or shipping.
