With so many mattresses on the market, it is important to know what to look out for to help you narrow down your options.
In this article, we will look into the Octasmart Plus mattress which is powered by patented multi-award-winning Octaspring aerospace technology and the Origin Hybrid, known for their unique multi-award Aeroflex technology.

Let’s take a brief overview of what both brands have to offer:[wptb id=35800]
Ratings by BedBuyer Australia[wptb id=35805]
Targeted Support and Comfort (Verdict: It’s Subjective)
The Octasmart Plus mattress comes with hundreds of Octasprings that function to support and cradle every inch of your body. It is smartly designed and arranged to specifically target 3 core areas of the body, the back, hips, and shoulders. Despite the design claims to provide perfect alignment to your spine, Bedbuyer experts however found it difficult to feel the difference in pressure between these zones.
On the other hand, the Origin Hybrid mattress design also claimed to provide a similar function by utilizing their one-of-a-kind technology. The Aeroflex layers create a unique density structure which also targets the neck, back and thigh area for maximum comfort and support.
We couldn’t find any complaints about both brands’ comfort and support, therefore it is unclear as to which would be a superior choice. Thus, whether you favor Octasmart’s technology or Origin’s technology, ultimately it depends on your personal preferences.
Motion Isolation (Origin Wins)
One of the most important point to consider when buying a mattress would be whether brands have motion isolation technology. This is particularly important to people who are light sleepers, and who share their bed with a partner, children, or pet.
The Octasmart Plus comes with a 9cm tall pocket spring combined with the Octaspring technology to create a bouncier feel and help keep movement localised on the mattress.
Whereas the Origin Hybrid, has its very own motion isolation technology. It is a unique hybrid formula of memory foam and Micro-Precision anti-gravity springs that help eliminate any form of disturbance from your partner during the night.
According to Sleep Advisors, the Octasmart’s motion separation performance is mediocre given its high price point. Whereas for the Origin, we couldn’t find any negative reviews in terms of motion isolation. Octasmart received a score of 4 out of 5 from the BedBuyer despite Sleep Advisor giving their mattress a “not so great performance” rating. Therefore, whether you favor Octasmart’s technology or the Origin’s technology ultimately depends on your personal preferences.
Temperature Regulation (It’s Tricky)
Temperature fluctuation during sleep at night is perfectly normal! In fact, it is part of your body’s circadian rhythm or internal clock, helping to control your sleep cycle.
The Octasmart Plus comes with its very own breathable Aerocell foam that is designed to cool down the surface temperature by absorbing moisture and keeping smooth airflow through the mattress layers.
The Origin Hybrid’s unique Atmospheric Tencel technology, along with latex and cooling gel memory foam material, is the formula for creating airflow control and surface temperature balance.
While this aspect seems a little tricky, just the design alone, the Origin Hybrid seemed to gain a competitive advantage with its well-thought-out temperature regulation design. that serves not only cooling properties but also functions to keep you warm when its cold.
Our Final Verdict – Which has Quality Sleep at the Best Value?
There is no denying that getting a good-quality mattress is the primary medium in providing you with a good night’s sleep. While it is tempting to assume that the more you pay, the better the mattress. But the question is, does a high price tag always guarantee the high quality?
In this article alone, the Origin Hybrid Mattress seemed to deliver similar features with consistent positive reviews from Product Review Australia at a much better price as compared to the Octasmart Plus. Furthermore, the Origin Hybrid has a competitive advantage in terms of company services such as a longer trial period and warranty.
All-in-all, it is better to invest in one that doesn’t break your bank, with a guaranteed quality that you can rely on for quality sleep every night, than one that you have to worry about replacing every now and then.
