how-sleep-works

Do you hate when you’re trying to sleep and the noisy neighbors or street traffic makes it hard to fall asleep? Do you want to listen to music or receive a phone call without that extra noise in the background that makes it hard to hear? Parents especially know this struggle all too well. They’re trying to go to sleep after a busy day and the kids are in other room making sleep nearly impossible. Some people resort to taking medication to help themselves fall asleep or doing strenuous exercise to make themselves even more tired.

There’s a better way and a far more convenient way to fall asleep without the distraction of the outside world. Bose QuietComfort 35 (Series II) Wireless Headphones, Noise Cancelling are your prayers answered and quiet nights ahead. These headphones come with a ton of functionality, so we decided to see if these could help those with sleepless nights or those who work in a noisy environment.

Testimonials

These are things people have said after purchasing these headphones and have expressed their results.

I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of noise that these headphones actually cut out. I can still hear some people when they talk slightly and the first day I wore them I had a weird pressure in my ear but I adjusted after and it’s been a life saver ever since. I can’t recommend this enough.


I wasn’t too thrilled with the Bluetooth connection strength but that’s not the primary reason I bought it. Compared to Sony’s noise cancelling headphones, these were far lighter, blocked out far more sound and the batteries lasted longer which is a huge plus. I love these headphones and I take them everywhere now as I travel a lot.

What to Watch Out For in thewireless headphones

When you’re buying wireless headphones for sleep aid or work, there’s a few things that some manufacturers out there will do to trick you. We went through a lot of different headphones before recommending Bose, but here’s some of the shady things we saw when we were looking for the best headphones to recommend to you.

  • Some companies only send you a pair of blank headphones then require you to buy the battery, the USB cable and additional software to make it sync up with your computer

  • Some companies flat out lie about the battery uptime of their headphones and it’s definitely not what they say it is

  • Some companies have hired paid fake reviewers that couldn’t be more obviously fake to leave positive reviews on their product without any of them actually purchasing the product

Conclusion

If you’re tired of being tired and not getting the sleep you want due to outside interference, these headphones are perfect. If you want to listen to your music in peace and quiet, then this volume adjusting headphones will fit you more than perfectly while allowing you to enjoy the tunes you love most. While the price may seem a little high, the purchase is most definitely worth it and we recommend you give these headphones a try. We would recommend ordering them fast because we never know when they’ll be out of stock or when the free shipping deals will come and go.

Tuft and Needle Queen Mattress

Getting a good night’s sleep is more about your overall health than it is about your beauty sleep. A lot of people like to feel relaxed when they lay down but your overall health detrimentally suffers if you suffer from a lack of sleep or get poor quality sleep. This is why your mattress selection needs to consist of something that adheres to your needs. We understand that everyone has different specifications and some people prefer hard mattresses for their backs while some people prefer to sleep on a fluffy cloud.

The Tuft & Needle Queen Mattress is a prime example of quality and while the price tag almost threw us off a bit, we had to get our hands on it to test it out and give it a thorough review. The first thing we noticed was how well the mattress fit on the box spring we had and how well it adjusted. It was almost like there wasn’t a box spring at all and we prefer something with a soft fluffy feeling, so this mattress was perfect for us to give a test drive. So, why is this mattress one of the highest reviewed mattresses on online eCommerce website and why is it so highly regarded as one of the best?

The foam material of this mattress is something called adaptive foam, which is developed by Tuft & Needle. While it can be regarded as a memory foam, it’s being marketed as something that’s softer and even more supportive than memory foam. From our experience, it’s very supportive and has an excellent memory, which mean it will bounce back to your original form without any incident or caving in.

Durability

We didn’t have too many doubts about the overall durability of this mattress because when we noticed that this mattress came with a 10 year warranty without any gimmicks attached, we know that Tuft & Needle has to mean business. No sane company would offer a 10 year warranty on a product that they didn’t know was top notch, right? The foam material in the bedding is extremely soft to the touch but it isn’t as easily pushed in as you might think it is. The foam is what’s called memory which means that when you’re laying down, it will bounce back to its original form when you get up.

For couples, the overall durability of the foam material used in the mattress is great because you won’t disturb your sleeping partner when you get up. If you have to get up in the middle of the night or you want to sneak out late to go hang out with the boys, your significant other won’t notice as the material doesn’t bounce, squeak or even move when you move. It has a localized bounce material included and the material is very cool to the touch. It remains cool after a long night sleep and won’t leave you with morning sweats when you wake up.

Comfort

The comfort is next to none, one of the best and most comfortable mattresses we’ve ever laid on. The overall comfort level of the mattress is extraordinary and we wish more bedding material was made like this. The modern level of design and support featured in this mattress is next to none, one of the best we’ve ever experienced. First, we were impressed by the sinking feeling you get when laying down on the adaptive memory foam material. It seems like you’re sinking into a cloud without actually sinking.

While it’s hard to get out of due to the overall level of comfort, it’s actually relatively easy to roll out of bed with ease, unlike some beds that sink in like a bean bag chair and then it’s hard to pull yourself out of them. The mattress is made locally in the USA and not made with cheap overseas materials that is marketed as high quality. The quality of the Mattress you’re getting, is with USA products and production materials. Also, the cool feeling of the mattress stays cool, so you can get a nice long night of sleep without that warm mattress feeling in the morning.

Top Rated – We feel it’s worth mentioning that this mattress is one of the most top rated mattresses of all time on various eCommerce sites. It was rated as the best in 2016 and continues to remain the top rated in 2017 as well. There’s several reasons for this and we can get into all of them, but we believe that it’s the overall quality of the material that gave it the deserved title of best selling mattress.

Adaptive Foam – One of the main things we look for when we’re trying to find a mattress to review is the foam material and how adaptive the material is. What exactly does adaptive foam mean? This means, that when you lay down and if you have to get up for any reason, the foam material will bounce back and that the material will come back to its original shape before you laid down in the first place. This is called adaptive or a bounce back.

USA Manufactured – If you’re always concerned about cheap overseas materials being used in your products or where products are manufactured, no need to be worried because this mattress is proudly manufactured in the USA by Tuft & Needle.

Excellent Warranty – You’ll struggle to find an unrivaled warranty in this industry on any kind of product out there. How many beds can you find a 10 year warranty on that guarantees the solid quality of the product and your sleep? If you’re still hesitant, Tuft & Needle even offers a 100 night sleeping trial to help you decide if this is something for you or not. Tuft & Needle has even reported that almost 100% of their customers decide to keep their mattress after the 100 day sleeping trial is up and a lot of them even refer the mattress to others as well.

Pros

  • There’s absolutely no risk and there’s no reason to feel like you’re locked into a purchase decision with this mattress, as they have a 100 day sleeping trial with the product

  • Tuft & Needle was ranked as one of the best and most trusted producers of mattresses in the USA and all of their products are proudly made right here in the USA

  • The bouncing breathable adaptive material of the bed is made to bounce back to its original form after you’ve been laying down on it, meaning the bed won’t cave in after a prolonged period and you can rely on the shape of the bed to retain itself

  • The mattress has a cool feeling that retains all through the night, even on hot nights, which help reduce those morning hot flashes or sweats that some people experience

Cons

  • The mattress is very soft and fluffy, so if you’re someone with a bad back or someone who prefers a hard mattress, this won’t be for you

FAQ  ( Frequently Asked Questions)

Q: How much does this mattress weight?

A: The specific product dimensions of this mattress are as follows: The mattress comes in at 60 inches by 80 inches by 10 inches in height. Then, the approximate weight of the mattress is 70 pounds, which seems rather heavy but there’s a lot of packed foam material inside the mattress.

Q: Does this mattress fit heavy people?

A: Absolutely. Whether you’re over 6 feet tall or weigh over 300 pounds, this mattress will fit you just fine and you’ll have no trouble getting a comfortable night’s rest on this mattress.

Q: What’s the catch to the 10 year warranty?

A: Absolutely none. There is no catch, gimmicks or tricks up the sleeves of Tuft & Needle. They offer a 100 night sleep trial to help you make a purchase decision and if you like it, there’s a 10 year warranty on the bed.

Conclusion

So, when examining the Tuft & Needle Queen Mattress, a lot of people want to know if it’s worth the price tag, because it can seem like quite a lot to pay for a mattress. However, there’s a lot of things to overlook here because the price tag is definitely worth it in our opinion. First, the overall level of quality and comfort you’ll experience while sleeping is worth it alone but there’s also several reason to avoid cheap mattresses.

When you get a cheap mattress, the frame and the foam is going to deteriorate rather rapidly over time the more you sleep. This mattress was built to last for decades to come and may possibly be the last mattress you ever purchase. It’s one of the best products we’ve ever had the pleasure of reviewing and we hope you’ll give the mattress a shot too because it’s completely risk free with the 100 night sleeping trial. The adaptive memory foam does have a tendency to make people sleep in late, so make sure you have a loud alarm.

Zinus 9 Inch High Profile Smart Box Spring Mattress

While a lot of people focus directly on the overall quality of the mattress and the bedding they have for their overall sleep quality, there’s things that a lot of people don’t think about. For example, when’s the last time you replaced or thought about the quality of your box spring foundation? This is often overlooked and that’s a big mistake, because this is essentially what drastically improves your overall quality of sleep.

A low budget and poorly constructed box spring mattress foundation will be detrimental to your overall quality of sleep, no matter how high of quality your mattress is. Even the highest quality mattress can deteriorate over time if you subject it to a poor foundation. The Zinus 9 inch high profile smart box spring comes at a relatively fair pricing point and is highly reviewed as one of the best sellers on Amazon for box spring mattress foundations, so we just had to get our hands on it and try it out.

Having a 9 inch mattress foundation is impressive and we wanted to make sure that this product held true to its word as one of the best sellers on Amazon. The structure provided is made of steel and is highly durable. You can fit just about anything you want on this box spring and it’s never going to fold or cave on you. It’ll also never wear and tear. The welding work on the box was beautifully done and quite impressive in a way.

While no one likes to do their own assembly or have to do assembly at all, the assembly was surprisingly easy and was done in just a few short simple steps. The traditional box spring has a unique look to them and that’s not something that Zinus wanted to abandon, so they kept that traditional look. However, Zinus decided to use a very strong steel material to form the box instead of the cheap metal that most box springs come with, so the quality and the durability of the frame is highly durable.

Durability

The overall durability of the frame is solid as a rock. There’s not much we can say in terms of durability because the thing is made of pure hard steel. Most box frames are made of cheap metallic material and they tend to bend and wear. One of the biggest struggles for larger customers is finding a box spring that will allow them to lay on the bed without a lot of squeaking or damage to the bed.

Whether you’re doing your business on the bed or whether you’re just trying to lay down, heavier customers often find that when you lay down, the bed either squeaks or the frame will start to cave in. Thankfully with the Zinus 9 Inch High Profile Smart Box Spring, this isn’t an issue. Even if you do ever have an issue with the durability of the box spring, Zinus has absolutely amazing customer support and always answers every single person that has a complaint or concern right away.

Features of Zinus Spring Mattress

Structure – The integrity of the structure presented in this frame is one of the best we’ve ever seen. We review a lot of beds and a lot of us love to sleep in late, so we take our frame reviews seriously. The overall structure of the Zinus 9 inch is thoroughly impressive. You can throw just about anything at it (even though we don’t recommend doing that) and it holds up through thick and thin. It’s an impressive frame with unparalleled structure and the ability to withstand an enormous amount of pressure.

Packaging – The packaging is nice and convenient as well. It’s not too large and it’s not too heavy when it arrives at your front door. You’ll be able to easily get it into your home and get it all setup for your convenience.

Assembly – While no one likes to do assembly, the overall assembly of this bed is relatively easy and done in a few simple steps. The frame is made mostly of heavy duty steel and a lot of the work is already done for you. All you have to do is follow the simple instructions included with your guide and you’ll have your bed setup in no time. Depending on what you order, you may need more room than other frames because there’s a twin, twin XL, full, queen, King and California King available.

Limited Warranty – It’s always nice to have a warranty attached to a product, even if it’s one of the bestselling products on a popular website. This product proudly supports a 5 year limited warranty that will ease your mind and will help you replace anything that’s broken, if that ever happens. You’d have to be doing something seriously wrong to break something on this frame.

Pros

  • The biggest pro worth mentioning even though we’ve gone over it is the overall steel structure of the frame presented in the bed because it’s unparalleled to what we see in the market today in terms of integrity which allows more weight to be applied to the frame

  • The packaging comes very conveniently packed and easy to unfold for your convenience so you don’t have to spend an hour trying to get the thing out of the box

  • The tools needed for assembly, although the assembly is short and easy is included right there in the box

  • Has a nice 5 year limited warranty so if you’re ever concerned about the overall quality or the frame gets damaged in any way, you can always return it to get it repaired or have replacement parts sent to your house with no cost to you at all

  • Comes in different sizes all the way from the twin size to the California King and all of them are available for a nice economically friendly price as well

  • Is sized up nicely with 9 inches between the frame and the mattress you put on top of the box spring so that you’ll have a nice level of padding and you won’t even be able to tell that there’s a box spring on there

Cons

  • The cover of the box spring is a little tedious to get on as some users have pointed out and most recommend never removing it once you do get it on

FAQ ( Frequently Asked Questions)

Q: I weigh over 300 pounds, can I stand on this box spring without doing any damage to it?

A: While there’s been no official or confirmed reports of damaging the box spring by standing on it, we highly recommend not doing this for quite a few reasons. First of all, it’s dangerous and second of all, box springs were not meant to be stood on as no bed part is. There’s really no reason to stand or jump on the bed unless you’re a hyper kid on Christmas trying to wake your parents up. Do not jump or stand on this bed even though you’ll more than likely not affect the box.

Q: Will this frame hold up for bigger couples?

A: Yes, this frame is perfectly fine for larger couples or individuals. We’ve seen reports of people who are 200-300 pounds who say they have absolutely no issues while utilizing this frame. Even if you’re over 6 feet tall or over 300 pounds and have a significant other partner who is the same, you shouldn’t notice any slack in quality or any difference.

Q: What’s with the size listed on the site? It says 59.5 inches by 79 inches but a queen bed can be 60 inches by 80 inches.

A: It’s not uncommon for the mattress to stick out one or a couple of inches past a bedframe. The overall quality of the frame doesn’t deteriorate and you won’t notice any difference if the mattress is sticking out an inch or more.

Conclusion

So, does this low budget box spring hold up as one of the best-selling box springs on the internet? From our experience, we would definitely say so. The quality of the Zinus 9 inch high profile smart box spring is quite impressive from the ground up. We made sure to thoroughly go over every single detail too, we didn’t leave anything out. We inspected the actual springs themselves, the steel frame, the material in the box spring and more. It’s often hard pressed to find a box spring that excels under an enormous amount of pressure.

There’s different sizes available as well from the same company so if you’re looking for a nice California King sized bed or you’re looking for something small like a Twin XL, there’s different sizes for your mattresses. The packaging and assembly that came with the bed was not only easy to understand but it was easy to assemble as well, which is a huge plus in our book. We hate assembly like I’m sure most of you do. Overall, this is a top notch high quality frame that you’ll come to love.
