澳美斯Emmas—天絲護脊系列Tencel Careback Deluxe vs Origin Mattress
In 2018, the Hong Kong Costumer Council did a test on 25 kinds of standard single beds in HK, neither spring or non-spring mattress got the highest score of 5. There are 4 mattress got the score of 4 out of 5, they are “澳美斯 Emmas” 天絲護脊系列 Tencel Careback Deluxe, with the price $3,224; “軒琴居 Hecom” 乳膠質感彈簧床褥 POC-LAT, $3,099; “金寶麗 Goldfully” 竹炭纖維獨立袋裝床褥 GBB203 Bamboo Mattress, $3,088元; and “雅蘭 Airland” 煥能運動 Celliant Sport, $3,135. Among the 4 mattresses, Emmas got the most similar mattress to Origin. Therefore, I will compare Emmas with Origin.
In terms of price, by comparing the two brands with the size of a standard single bed, the size of the two are very close, but the price difference is around a thousand Hong Kong dollars, which can consider as a big gap in Hong Kong’s average spending on a mattress.
About the layers, Emmas mattress included 4 layers, the Tencel top layer, below it there are natural latex, Conforma™ Foam and the pocket spring 3 zone support system, and with no cooling feature. But, Origin’s mattress is with 6 layers, other than the layers included in Emmas’, cooling gel foam, supporting edge and pocket spring is also included. It will let the mattress become more stable. Because of that, Origin’s mattress is around 5 cm thicker than Emmas, and it should bring an even more comfortable sleeping experience to customers.
3. Shopping Experience
It is both easy and convenient to buy mattresses in both brands, both of them are available online, home delivery is provided, but Emmas’ itself does not provide online shopping, customers will have to reach their authorized distributor for further information. Emmas itself provide in-store shopping, customers are allowed to try their mattress in-store, and because of that, Emmas does not provide a trial on their products, but with 10 years warranty only. In fact, throughout the 10 years warranty, there is a various requirement that has to be made beforehand. Overall, Origin has more user-friendly rules, with 120 days of trial and 10 years of warranty, which I do not want to bet my future 10 years sleep in 5 mins!
