How do these models compare to the Sleep Number brand models?

​​Both brands have features unique to their own models. Since both brands provide for individual mattress firmness that can be personalized for each sleep partner and changed as needed over time, both brands will provide you with the vehicle for a great night's sleep!  In all their models, Sleep Number continues to use the original vulcanized rubber air chamber design launched in 1981 by Comfortaire. (Now a Select Comfort Company) Our r4 and r8 models utilize the same original vulcanized rubber air chamber design combined with the latest in advanced design technologies.  With the original air chamber design, the vulcanized rubber chamber sits at or near the bottom of the mattress to provide customized firmness options.  The comfort layers on top of the chamber and mattress cover options are integral to determining the overall comfort level and feel of each model. However, the r4 and r8 models have 8 distinct advantages over all Sleep Number models. (see below)

What makes these models better than Sleep Number models?

​Both Sleep Number beds and our r4 and r8 models are designed with vulcanized rubber air chambers to easily personalize your mattress firmness.  Sleep Number is the pioneer in educating consumers about the benefits of having a mattress with individual comfort levels that can be changed over time and personalized for each sleep partner as needed.  No other national brand offers that advantage.  Sleep Number has spent billions of dollars in advertising to educate consumers over the decades.  We were a retail partner of theirs since the acquisition of Comfortaire in 2013.  We remain grateful for their role in educating the public on sleep.  The fact is, all costs of an operation must be factored into the prices charged to the consumer.  Since our brand is NOT nationally advertised we can pass those savings on to the consumer and offer an even better product at a lower price.

What makes the x10 mattress cover better than Sleep Number models?
The split top mattress is a king or queen mattress with a 1/3 mini split down the top center of the mattress. This allows couples to have independent elevation adjustments without using separate twin size mattresses as with Sleep Number's Split King system. With the split top design, couples can still cuddle since the bottom 2/3 of the mattress remains solid while allowing for individual foot and head elevation adjustments. The new Sleep Number Flex Top design is only available in a King size and forces both sleep partners to have the same leg elevation at all times. With our pliable urethane hybrid design our models allows for individual head and leg elevation in our split top models!
What is a Split Top mattress anyway?
Our Top 10 Advantages of our x10 model over ALL Sleep Number models:
Perhaps the single biggest reason is that with the x10 model we utilize a hybrid design with low profile foam support rails and urethane based pliable air chambers which allows for individual elevation for BOTH head and feet in the split head mattress.  Urethane air chambers are more pliable than latex/cotton rubber air chambers.  The urethane chambers provide for softer, more conforming & comfortable support that can easily be personalized over time and have amazing performance and efficacy when utilized with power adjustable bases for elevation.

Sleep Number only offers individual sleep partner head and foot individual elevation with their split king (Two twin XL mattresses pushed together)
What makes the x10 better than the Sleep Number i10 (Sleep Number's very best mattress)?
Bigger companies have bigger overhead.  Short and simple.  We are locally owned & operated for over 50 years – we sell for less.  Our overhead is low and our product quality is high.  We so strongly believe in this fact that should you try us, and buy theirs, we will give you a $100 Visa gift card.

Both brands have unique features unique to their own models. Since both brands provide for individual firmness for each sleep partner that can be changed over time as needed, both brands will provide you with a vehicle for a great night's sleep!  However, the x10 enjoys several differentiators that the Sleep Number models do not enjoy. As of this writing, Sleep Number offers eight different model mattresses.
