KAYA vs. Brooklyn Aurora

The following review was conducted by the KAYA Sleep, Inc. employees, and as such we realize cannot be completely objective. However, great efforts were made to present the factual information as is, as we believe in the importance of transparency.

Brooklyn Bedding’s Aurora Mattress is the newest addition to their selection of mattresses. This model is a hybrid mattress that includes both foam and coils in its build. It is constructed of 5 layers to total a height of 13.5”. There are three choices of firmness for the Aurora: soft, medium and firm. This comparison is based on the medium firmness because of its popular comfort level among consumers. The firm version of this mattress is similar to the medium (a little bit firmer on a 1 to 10 scale), and the soft is more plush. The medium firmness is most similar to KAYA as a more in-depth comparison can be made.

The KAYA mattress is a premium hybrid mattress, designed by sleep experts with years of experience. KAYA is constructed of 3 layers of the highest density foams available, with a pocketed coil core of over 1,000 springs. Its high-density foam layers provide top-notch support and durability, while its pocketed coil core takes care of body contouring, amazing Edge support, and minimal motion transfer. To top it all off, KAYA’s cover is infused with ThermoGel, which starts cooling when truly needed, and close to your skin, where it counts. A mattress of this quality, at such an affordable price, with a trial period of 120 days and a 20-year warranty, cannot be found anywhere else.

Let’s continue with the comparison.

KAYA mattress in bedroom

Best overall mattress – KAYA

Comparing these two premium quality hybrids, KAYA is the better, more valuable option. Overall, KAYA‘s foams have better densities, resulting in higher quality and better durability. Add a price difference of over $400 (!) between the two, this one’s clearly in KAYA‘s favor.

We’ve constructed a fully detailed comparison, and it can be found down below.

We’ve constructed a fully detailed comparison, and it can be found down below.

1. Materials/Durability

We will start off by addressing that both the Aurora and KAYA have great features in terms of hybrid qualities such as edge support, and minimizing motion transfer. The main thing that differs between the mattresses is probably the quality of the materials between the different layers, and this is where KAYA has the edge.

We will break down the mattresses by each layer. KAYA’s Highly Responsive HD Foam carries a 5-PCF density while Aurora’s top Foam’s density is only 2.5-PCF. That is double the density in the top layer! Granted, Aurora’s top layer is 0.5″ taller, yet that is just more of the same, lower density foam.  KAYA’s second layer is impressive as well, with a 2″, 4-PCF Memory Foam against Aurora’s 2″, 3.5-PCF hyper elastic foam. Coming up next is Aurora’s only win in the foam density department, with 1″ of 3.5-PCF in its visco-elastic memory foam against KAYA’s 1″, 2-PCF Transition Foam. This layer mostly serves as a transitional layer between the foam and coil layers in both mattresses, and for deep compression support. Finally, the Base layer which is comprised of pocketed coils in both mattresses, is of similar properties, and both include over 1,000 coils each. The difference here is in height, where Aurora’s coils are 8″ and KAYA’s are 6″.

As mentioned, both mattresses have great Edge support and minimized motion transfer, and do a great job in these categories.

The cooling category is a close call as well, as both utilize the great cooling properties of the Hybrid design, in addition to their own cooling mechanism. While the Aurora relies on Phase Change Material in its top layer, KAYA went a step closer, and had its actively cooling ThermoGel infused in the cover itself. The ThermGel grants KAYA the benefit of cooling when it detects unwanted heat or humidity, and having it in the cover, as close as it gets to the sleeper, is ideal.

2. Firmness

Medium-Firm 
KAYA

Medium 
Brooklyn Aurora

Seeing as firmness is a matter of personal preference, and both have similar firmness levels, we would have to call this one as a tie. KAYA has a medium-firm mattress with an initial soft touch (rated a 6 out of 10 on firmness) with deep firm suppport. Aurora is usually rated 6 out of 10 as well. Both mattresses do a great job in getting that Medium-Firm feel, providing just enough pressure relief and support. The Medium-Firm level is the most popular one, and we believe most people will find the firmness of KAYA and the Aurora as just right. It is important to mention that Aurora has two more different models, offering a Soft and Firm option as well. Seeing as the Medium-Firm option is the most popular one by a majority, it was the one used for this comparison. Bottom line – KAYA and Aurora both have great firmness, so there is no clear winner in this category.

For the next years, up to the 20th year, KAYA will provide additional coverage and repair or replace the mattress at a prorated cost.

Summary

Brooklyn Bedding’s Aurora mattress and KAYA are similar in some aspects. However, KAYA surpasses the Aurora in its quality and structure. KAYA is made from better materials, which make it more durable and reliable. While both mattresses have a smart hybrid design which utilizes both foam and pocketed coils, KAYA has the better overall specifications by far. KAYA’s foam layers have higher densities, and a formation that brings the best out of its foams and coils, as a true premium hybrid mattress should.

From the cooling standpoint, both utilize the advantages of having a pocketed coil layer that allows airflow, and both have their own additional cooling mechanism. However, KAYA’s ThermoGel is infused inside the cover, making a better impact as it’s closer to your body.

Finally, KAYA offers a better warranty and price. KAYA offers a queen size mattress for $1195, while the Aurora costs $1,399 – a big difference in price. As well, KAYA provides 10 years of warranty, while the Aurora provides half of this.
