Endy vs Casper Mattress Comparison

With loyal customer bases, Endy and Casper are two of the most well-known mattress brands in Canada. How did they get their start?

Review of the Endy mattress

Endey is a brand of bed-in-a-box mattresses owned by Sleep Country, Canada’s largest chain of mattress retailers. In 2015, the company began selling a foam mattress that could fit any size, competing with other online brands like Casper and Douglas. The Endy brand mattresses are made in Ontario and Quebec, shipped from Ontario and BC distribution centers.

As of Summer 2019, Endy Sleep has released the Mira mattress, offering an additional 30 days of sleep trials and selling for $300 less than Endy. In spite of the fact that new brands tend to leverage the brand awareness and market reputation of their parent company, Endy and Mira chose not to announce their relationship in the first few months after launch.

Casper Mattress Review

In 2014, Casper released its bed-in-a-box by launching a firm, ‘one-size-fits-all’ mattress. Casper began in the USA but has since expanded to Canada.

Casper mattress has quickly become the market leader in the bed-in-a-box market after receiving tens of millions in funding from Ashton Kutcher and Target Corporation. Casper has since added the Element and the Wave to its assortment.

Endy vs Casper: Delivery, Sleep Trials, and Returns

The rise of the bed-in-a-box industry and modern compression techniques have made it possible to ship mattresses much more efficiently and conveniently than ever before. It is no longer necessary for customers to take a day off work to accept deliveries. Boxed beds are now delivered in the same convenient way as most Amazon orders. In certain areas, bed-in-a-box companies even offer same-day delivery.

Most Canadian customers get their mattresses directly from Endy and Casper using UPS. A customer can leave mattresses outside on a porch or deck while away from home in some cases. Because of this, both brands offer a similar shipping time, usually arriving within 10 days of purchase.

Endy and Casper use their in-home sleep trials heavily as do other bed-in-a-box brands. Both brands offer 100-night sleep trials, which is about average for the industry. They offer a month less than competitors Novosbed and Douglas, both of which are located in Canada.

In the event of a return, both companies will pick up the mattresses and issue a full refund. Endy and Casper’s mattresses do not have additional return or restocking fees.

Endy vs Casper: A game of wits

Our Endy and Casper mattresses were delivered on time. We shipped each mattress well wrapped in heavy-duty plastic to ensure its protection. A heavy-duty tape secured the boxes for both mattresses. Consumers will have to use scissors or a knife to open the packaging. When opening the box, be extra careful not to damage your brand-new mattress or yourself.

It is easy to remove the compressed mattress from the box once it has been opened. The mattress needs to be slowly pushed out of its cardboard packaging with a ‘tip-and-pull’ motion. Pull the lightweight box away from the bundled mattress by simply tipping it from a vertical position onto its side. You should complete this process in the room where the mattress will be used.

Multiple layers of heavy plastic protected both the Endy and Casper during shipping – an inner layer to keep the compressed cylinder shape in a vacuum seal, and exterior layers to maintain the tight cylinder shape. In order to convert the cylinder-shaped mattress into a flat, albeit compressed, form, customers will have to remove the outer layer of plastic.

It would be helpful at this point to place the rolled-up mattress onto the designated bed frame. Taking the outer plastic layer apart, start peeling it back in the same manner as you would when you peel a tape roll. With the momentum generated when unrolling the compressed mattress, you can remove the rest of the layer, which may be several meters long. Once finished, the mattress will lay out before you unroll.

Once this last layer of plastic has been removed, cut and remove it. Now that the vacuum seal has been broken, the mattress will begin to decompress. The height of a bed-in-a-box mattress will increase within minutes to days depending upon the manufacturer. The Endy mattress and the Casper mattress increased in height to their full capacity within three minutes.

Mattress construction: Endy vs Casper

Casper and Endy are both combination foam mattresses. Each comes compressed, rolled, and packaged in a box, with only one firmness option.

Endy and Casper’s mattresses differ primarily in terms of the types of foam used to provide comfort and support. It is important to note that a mattress has layers of comfort, transition, and support, and the thickness and density of these layers vary.

The top cover of each mattress displays the brand’s distinctive design aesthetic. Some cover tops can be washed. Out of the two mattresses reviewed, only the Endy has a removable top cover.

Endy vs Casper Mattress Layers

Layers of Endy mattresses: Three layers of foam make up the Endy mattress Reviews:

  • Approximately 2 inches of Endy comfort foam make up the top layer of the mattress. These two features are ideal for comfort and temperature regulation.
  • It consists of a three-inch layer of polyurethane foam on the second layer. Combined with the comfort layer, this layer will provide additional support and help the body conform to it.
  • Polyurethane foam is the final layer of the Endy mattress, which provides structure whilst preventing sleepers from sinking too deeply into the mattress.

There is no density information provided by Endy for its top layer of foam. Endy’s second and third layers both weigh 1.8lbs/ft3.

Layers of Casper Mattress

Casper mattresses are made up of four layers of foam:

  • 1.75 inches of foam are made up of open-celled polyurethane cells on Casper’s top layer. It provides warmth regulation and comfort.
  • Memory foam makes up 1.5′′ of the Casper mattress’ second layer. In conjunction with the first comfort layer, this layer provides an element of support, helps mold to your body shape, and provides pressure-point relief.
  • Casper mattresses include a 1.5′′ layer of zoned polyurethane foam on layer three. In between the first two comfort layers and the final support layer, this layer acts as a transition layer. There are different zones of firmness under the shoulder and hip area of this layer.
  • Casper’s mattress is finished off with a 5.5-inch layer of support foam. Casper’s structure comes from this layer, which prevents sleepers from sinking too much.
  • The density of any foam layer provided by Casper is unknown.

Endy vs Casper Mattress Cover

Cover Of Endy mattress: The cover of the Endy mattress is two-toned. The cover has a grey bottom part with a heavier-duty fabric, as well as a white top with a diamond-knit pattern. Covers made of polyester and Lycra are mainly made of polyester. In contrast to some mattresses on the market, like Douglas and Novosbed, Endy does not promote eco-friendly fabrics. In the Endy mattress, the top can be conveniently washed by unzipping and washing in the washing machine.

Cover of Casper Mattress: Casper mattresses have a simple two-tone cover. Casper mattress covers are made of a heavy-duty, charcoal-colored speckled fabric. I like the contrast with the sharp, stretched, and white polyester and lycra top cover. Several new mattress brands have adopted the simplicity of the Casper mattress aesthetic, such as Endy.

Feel and Firmness of Endy and Casper

Feel and Firmness: We commissioned third-party engineers to conduct expert testing, which revealed a variation in the feel and firmness of the Endy and Casper mattresses:

  • It is a medium-firm mattress. The firmness rating is 7.4 / 10. I like the hug of the Endy mattress.
  • The Casper mattress has a firmness rating of 6 / 10 on the firmness scale. There is also some hug in the Casper mattress.

Edge Support: When customers switch from innerspring cushions to foam mattresses, they often experience issues with edge support. Both Endy and Casper mattresses scored below average on edge support tests conducted by third-party engineers (commissioned by us):

  • The edge support on the Endy mattress is below average. The edge support rating is 3.9 out of 10.
  • Edge support is also below-average for a Casper mattress. On the edge support scale, it is rated 2.1 out of 10.

Isolation of motion: Foam mattresses usually have good motion isolation. Many couples switch from innerspring to memory foam because of this reason. The motion isolation ratings of the Endy and the Casper are above average, according to testing conducted by third parties (commissioned from us):

  • Motion isolation on the Endy mattress is above average. The motion isolation rating is 6.6 out of 10.
  • Motion isolation is above-average on the Casper mattress. The motion isolation rating is 6.4 / 10.

Which is better, the Endy or the Casper?

If you are deciding between the Casper mattress and the Endy, you are in a unique position. Both brands have worked hard to market their mattresses successfully in Canada and the United States. This means that they should be considered as starting points, not necessarily as the final purchase.

In general, Casper and Endy have a soft feel with a considerable hug. This will be the perfect option for some sleepers, but for those who prefer a firmer mattress, you’ll want to check out another option. We found both mattresses to perform similarly based on independent testing.
