Can’t decide between Hush and Endy? We don’t blame you. At Hush, we’ve worked hard to craft the best bed in a box you can buy in Canada (or anywhere), but we know other companies have worked hard on their mattresses too. Our Hush mattress and the Endy mattress are both very highly-rated. So how are you supposed to decide between the two?
Both are very high quality mattresses, and though we hope you choose a Hush mattress, we’re happy to recommend the Endy mattress to the right sleeper. Thankfully, there are some important differences between the two that can help you make your decision.
For instance, the Hush mattress is a hybrid that combines fluffy foam with zoned coils, while the Endy is pure foam. As such, the Endy has more give than the Hush, so those who want more support may opt for the Hush. In this article, we’ll compare the Hush and Endy mattresses across five measures of quality: support, pressure relief, steadiness, cooling, and durability.

Hush vs Endy Mattress
Which mattress is best for you will depend on your preferences in the following categories. Let’s take a look at how the Hush and Endy mattresses compare.
Hush vs Endy: Support and Firmness
For many people, this is the most important quality in a bed: How supportive is it? Finding the right balance between soft and firm can be tricky. If it’s too firm, it may be uncomfortable, but if it’s too soft, it won’t provide support. For this reason, people want a mattress that’s supportive but also soft.
Hush Support and Firmness
The Hush mattress is the perfect blend of firm support and soft fluffiness. It sits on a base of innerspring coils, giving you just enough bounce to keep the mattress from ever getting saggy. It’s much more supportive than an all-foam mattress.
With the Hush mattress, we've taken zoned support to the next level. The springs in the middle of the mattress have a heavier gauge than the ones at your head and feet. This keeps your lower back from sagging in the middle of the bed, a very common mattress problem. It also helps your sleep posture. The Hush mattress is ideal for sleepers who struggle with back pain.
Endy Support and Firmness
Between these two mattresses, the Endy mattress has more give. It is a little softer and a little less firm. It won’t swallow you like some softer memory foam, but it has plenty of cushioning. For this reason, the Endy mattress is a good choice for those who like a bit of a hug with their mattress, but maybe not so much those looking for more support.
Hush vs Endy: Pressure Relief
No matter how firm you like your mattress, you’ll probably want it to be soft on the surface. This helps take pressure off of joints. It’s especially important for stomach and side sleepers, as these sleeping positions put more strain on some of your joints and organs.
Hush Pressure Relief
The Hush mattress provides great pressure relief for back sleepers, side sleepers, and stomach sleepers of all shapes and sizes. The hybrid design is the reason it’s so versatile: Its zoned coils have a better range of motion than pure foam, but the foam at the top of the mattress gives you that soft, cushion-y feeling that relieves pressure and helps your muscles relax.
Endy Pressure Relief
The Endy mattress has a soft outer layer with a squishy feeling. This gives a decent amount of pressure relief for back sleepers or average-weight side sleepers. It’s a bit more durable than regular memory foam, so you won’t sink as much as you would in some foam mattresses. As such, you’ll have an easier time switching positions throughout the night than you would in a traditional memory foam mattress.
Side sleepers with bigger frames may not be as comfortable on an Endy mattress. This is because your weight gets more concentrated when you lie on your side, which sinks you deeper into the outer layer of the mattress. In this case, you might feel the stiffer support layer underneath the soft outer layer.
For these reasons, those with larger frames or who prefer a little more support may want to choose a different mattress.
Hush vs Endy: Steadiness
If you regularly sleep with a partner or pet, you’ll want to consider motion transfer. Ideally, you’ll want a mattress that isolates motion, so you don’t have to feel it every time your partner rolls over or your pet jumps up on the bed. With this in mind, let’s talk about the steadiness of each mattress.
Innerspring mattresses do not have the best reputation when it comes to steadiness or edge support. The problem is that all the springs are usually connected, so sitting on one side of the bed pulls every other spring and scrunches the whole mattress.
The Hush mattress is different. Each coil sits in its own sheath, so the motion of one coil doesn’t affect any others. This means you will stay completely still no matter what’s happening on the other side of the bed. And so will your partner. You could get up, have a midnight snack, and come back to bed without waking them up at all.
The Endy mattress is also very effective when it comes to steadiness. Most foam mattresses do a good job of isolating motion, but the Endy mattress is especially stable compared to most other foam mattresses.
As with the Hush mattress, what you do on your side of the bed stays on your side of the bed, and ditto for your partner or pet.
Hush vs Endy: Cooling
No matter how comfortable or supportive a mattress is, it won’t be of much use to you if you’re too hot and sweaty to sleep. Sleep researchers have shown that a hot environment can make you feel more awake. Your body needs a cooler temperature in order to transition to sleep mode. For this reason, cooling mattresses can help you stay asleep longer without overheating.
The Hush mattress is the cooler of the two mattresses. This is in part because of its hybrid design: The coil inner layer has a lot of open space for heat to pass through, rather than a solid chunk of foam. It has outer foam layers, but this isn’t just any foam: It is three-layer foam designed to keep you cool throughout the night.
We start by adding phase change material to the top layer of foam. This space-age tech can absorb and release lots of heat in order to keep the mattress a consistent temperature throughout the night. The top layer is also perforated to let air through. Underneath that is a layer of heat-wicking graphite, which transfers heat away from your body.
Finally, the bottom layer of the pillowy top is memory foam. But this isn’t the dense memory foam you’re picturing that gets really hot. It’s filled with tiny bubbles that soak up heat to keep it from rising back towards your body.
All this is to say, we worked really hard to design a mattress that would feel cool to the touch and stay that way all night long. With the Hush mattress, you can go ahead and cover yourself with blankets, knowing you won’t have to worry about overheating in the middle of the night.
Overheating can be a problem for many foam mattresses. The dense, spongy material doesn’t allow much airflow. This can trap your body heat, building it up around you and causing you to overheat.
The Endy mattress has a few tricks to fight this problem. The mattress cover has a very lightweight weave to allow some airflow. And the upper comfort layer is made of Endy's open-cell foam. This porous material is much more breathable than a memory foam bed.
Still, underneath all that is a pretty thick, dense layer of polyfoam. That stuff traps quite a bit of heat. If you're a hot sleeper, you'll probably find the Endy mattress a little stuffy.
Hush vs Endy: Durability
Even an affordable mattress is a big investment. You want to know that it's going to last a long time. How long will these mattresses last before you need to replace them?
Because its sturdiness comes from heavy-gauge coils, the Hush is a highly durable mattress. We put each one together by hand, ensuring everything is lined up and evenly stitched. No need to worry about getting a defective product because of some machine glitch.
What’s more, it’s made from the highest quality mattress materials. You can get 10 or more good years out of a Hush mattress before you'll need a new bed.
The high-density polyfoam base of the Endy mattress makes it more durable than the average foam mattress. Mattress experts estimate that it will last about seven years of regular use. You’ll know it’s time to get a new mattress when you notice it starting to sag in the middle.
Hush vs Endy: Which Is Right for You
As we’ve seen, there’s a lot to consider when choosing a bed in a box. Those who prefer a soft, fluffy mattress and don’t need a ton of support will be very happy with the Endy mattress. But we’ve built the Hush mattress to please the widest range of sleepers, from those who want something soft and fluffy to those needing a bit more support.
The Hush mattress is especially beneficial for hot sleepers, those who deal with back pain, and those who are heavier than average. The zoned coils give each body part the perfect amount of support, and the pillowy outer layer lets you feel like you’re floating on a cloud. Plus, it’ll keep you cool all night long.
We know it can be hard to choose a mattress online since you don’t get to test it first, but with the Hush mattress 100 night sleep trial, you can rest easy knowing you’ll get a full refund if you’re not satisfied for any reason.
