The German-manufactured Emma and China-manufactured Noa mattress both provide a good degree of comfort, support, and breathability at a competitive price. However the support system employed by the Emma Original mattress with its 7-zoned scheme provides a more tailored approach to address the different needs of different pressure zones, while Noa is a 4-zoned one.

If you prefer to sleep in a mixture of pocketed spring and latex mattress, you may consider Noa mattress. Between Emma Original and Noa, another key difference to spot is the materials. However it is mentioned at Noa’s Terms and Conditions, that Noa mattress will soften after sleeping in it for some time (can be anywhere around 2 weeks to 6 months), which for some people may find it uncomfortable. Despite that, return and full refund are allowed if you experience any softening.

Overall, the Emma Original mattress offers great quality at an unbeatable price and is well-deserving of its top spot. While it may still have some rooms to grow, in terms of service, there’s no doubt that it becomes one of the best mattress-in-the-box out there!
