Eight Best Price

Leesa's mattresses range from $525 to $1195. Eight's smart mattresses range from $699 to $1599, but their standard collection (without technology) is in the same price range as Leesa.

Since Eight's beds include smart technology (including a sleep coach that recommends better sleeping habits) in addition to the mattress itself, it has double the value.



  • Leesa ranges from $525 to $1195
  • Sapira by Leesa ranges from $995 to $1595

Leesa Sizes

Leesa offers all standard sizes for their bed. Eight's smart collection does not offer twin or twin XL sizes, but their standard collection (without technology) does.

Best Features Winner: Eight

Both of these beds use quality foams, but Eight is the only bed to offer sleep tracking, bed warming, a personalized sleep coach, and smart home integrations. Eight also offers three different comfort models ranging from medium-soft, medium firm, and firm.

First, we will start with the construction of the beds.

Next, we listed Leesa's two different options below.

Sapira LayersLeesa Layers

Visit Leesa

As far as features, Leesa's Avena top layer is supposed to make the bed a bit cooler, but once you put a sheet on it's not very noticeable. Both the Leesa and Sapira models only offer three layers.

Eight's unique features are available for each side of the bed:

  • Sleep Tracking (REM, Deep Sleep, Breathing Rate, etc)
  • Sleep Score
  • Sleep Coach makes recommendations
  • Temperature Control
  • Smart Alarm (wakes you during lightest sleep)
  • Alexa + other smart home integrations

Firmness Options: Eight Sleep

We rated firmness on a scale of 1 to 10, with 1 being the softest and 10 being the firmest.

Leesa vs Eight Sleep FirmnessLeesa vs Eight Sleep Firmness


Eight has three different comfort models and they just launched a Build Your Own Bed Design Studio where you can customize the comfort on each side.

  • Saturn+ is the most firm (7 out of 10)
  • Jupiter+ is medium-firm (6 out of 10)
  • Mars+ is medium-soft  (5 out of 10)
  • Build Your Own Bed ranges from soft to firm on each side (4.5 to 7 out of 10)


Leesa has two different beds which are very similar in firmness.

  • Leesa is slightly firmer (6 out of 10)
  • Sapira is slightly softer (5.5 out of 10)

Eight Sleep: Most Versitile for Sleep Positions

Eight has different comfort models, so it can accommodate side sleepers, back sleepers, and stomach sleepers. The Purple mattress generally only offers one comfort level.



  • Side Sleepers: Leesa or Sapira
  • Note: If you are prone to hip pain and are a side sleeper, this might not be the best choice for you since the beds are much softer.

Eight Sleep: Best for Motion Transfer

For the best motion isolation, we recommend the Jupiter+ by Eight since it has a special motion isolation layer. The Leesa bed was average in this category.

Both the Mars+ and the Sapira have coils in between the foam layers, so there is a slight extra bounce for those models. If you have a partner that tosses and turns a lot, this is something you should keep in mind.

Trial Period: Eight Sleep and Leesa

This is a tie-breaker!

Both mattresses offer a 100 Night Trial. If you don't love your bed, you can return it for free!

Leesa and Eight Sleep Warranty

This is a tie-breaker!

Both brands offer a 10 Year Warranty. They are confident the quality of their mattresses will hold up over time so you should not to expect to see large indents in your bed.

Leesa and Eight Sleep Better Business Bureau Rating

This is a tie-breaker!

The Better Business Bureau (BBB) is an organization that has been focusing on consumer trust since 1912. They are a resource where customers can submit their compliments and complaints. Both Leesa and Eight have a BBB rating of A+!


Both mattresses are a great choice if you are looking for something comfortable that will last. Leesa wins in terms of popularity, but we believe that Eight wins in innovation, as it is the only mattress that can actually tell you how to sleep better and has more firmness options. Fast Company even called Eight one of the World's Most Innovative Companies in 2018.
