Delivery, Sleep Trial & Returns

FedEx will deliver Octave Mirage directly to your door, in most areas in Canada. Additional fees may apply for some remote locations and delivery vendors might differ. The mattress ships from Ontario or Alberta, and you should receive it within 3–10 business days.

Octave Mirage arrives in a cardboard box. It’s wrapped in two layers of heavy-duty plastic for extra protection. After you remove the plastic, Octave Mirage expands to its full 13″ height in minutes. You can sleep on the mattress the same day it’s delivered.

Octave has one of the longest sleep trials in Canada at 365 nights. In comparison, industry-standard sleep trials are just 100 nights. This year-long sleep trial gives customers ample time to evaluate the mattress’s performance all year round and decide if it’s the perfect fit for them. You can try it out in the comfort of your home, and if you’re unsatisfied, Octave will pick up returns for free and issue a full refund within the trial period.

The Canadian-made Octave Mirage mattress measures 13″ tall and has 4 layers of specialty memory foam, with advanced cooling features integrated throughout.

  • Layer 1: Octave Mirage’s comfort layer is 2.5″ of CopperGel™ memory foam treated with phase-change material for temperature regulation. This layer is infused with PolarMAX® phase-change material, which reacts to your changing skin temperature to keep your body comfortable. Copper is also an antimicrobial metal and is meant to promote cleanliness in the mattress’s top layer.
  • Layer 2: Octave Mirage has a 1.5″ layer of aerated latex foam. This responsive material contains hundreds of air vents, which allow for improved cooling and breathability while still offering plenty of support.
  • Layer 3: The mattress’s transition layer is 2″ of premium Elastex® foam. This proprietary material feels just like natural body-cushioning latex. It also adds extra bounce that helps you change positions more easily.
  • Layer 4: Octave Mirage’s support layer is 7″ of high-density, multi-zone support foam. This layer contains five distinct pressure-relief zones to cushion your body, as well as breathable air channels that help dissipate heat and keep temperatures down.

Octave Mirage has a machine-washable top cover that’s soft and cool to the touch, thanks to its CryoFusion™ cooling nanofibres that has twice as many cooling threads as the entry-level Octave Vista. You’ll notice the coolness when you first lie down on the mattress, even with a sheet overtop.

Mattress Performance Results

5.5 /10

Firmness

In third-party engineer testing (commissioned by us), Octave Mirage scored 5.5/10 for firmness. This rating places it on the softer side of the medium-firm category. If you prefer a mattress that offers support, but with a touch of softness, the Octave Mirage might be exactly what you’re looking for.


6.8 /10

Edge Support

Lower edge support is common when you’re looking at foam mattresses. However, Octave Mirage provides above-average edge support for a foam mattress with a score of 6.8/10.


7.3 /10

Motion Isolation

Octave Mirage has great motion isolation with a score of 7.3/10. If your sleep is often disturbed by a restless partner, kids, or pets, you’ll love how Octave Mirage cancels out movement and helps you get a deeper sleep.


3.2 /10

Bounce

Octave Mirage scored a 3.2/10 for bounce—the lowest in the entire Octave product line. This is good news if you like a steady sleep surface, although changing positions might take a little more effort.

Octave is the next step in the evolution of Novosbed, one of Canada’s first bed-in-a-box brands.

Octave has applied this deep experience and history of innovation to develop Canada’s best cooling mattress.

Octave Vista, Mirage, and Horizon are are designed with advanced cooling features like temperature-regulating fabrics, copper-infused memory foam to dissipate heat, and phase-change material for temperature balance. Octave also offers exceptional motion isolation and pressure relief, resulting in an even greater sleep experience than Novosbed.

  • Octave Vista provides an intensely cooling sleep experience with a CryoFusion™ cooling nanofibre cover, copper-infused memory foam treated with PolarMAX® phase-change material for temperature balance, and multi-zone support foam with air channels for breathability and temperature control.
  • Octave Mirage builds on Vista’s advanced features with an additional layer of aerated latex foam, which is filled with hundreds of vents for improved cooling and breathability.
  • Octave Horizon provides the ultimate cooling experience with an added layer of ecoLuxe® cooling gel foam, which cushions and conforms to your body for your most comfortable night’s sleep ever.

Great bed!!! So comfortable and I sleep throughout the night now.

Whitney G.
Verified Novosbed Buyer (previous version of Octave)

I sleep much deeper and more restfully. I also don’t have back pain anymore which has been a chronic problem for quite some time. Best decision I made!

Katelyn F.
Verified Novosbed Buyer (previous version of Octave)

I can sleep on my side, stomach and back and I am comfy no matter what.

Teigen B.
Verified Novosbed Buyer (previous version of Octave)

I’ve spent twice as much in the past for mattresses that didn’t feel as nice as this one.

Betsy H.
Verified Novosbed Buyer (previous version of Octave)

From the moment my head hit the pillow I slept straight through the night and straight through my alarm which I’ve never done before. Highly recommended for anyone who wants a good night sleep!

Frequently Asked Questions

Is the Octave mattress cover machine washable?

Yes, you can machine-wash your Octave mattress cover. Use the 360° zipper to remove the top cover, and run the cover through your washing machine on a gentle cycle. You can then air-dry, tumble-dry, or machine-dry the cover on low heat. The top cover quickly reattaches to the mattress with the zipper.

What does the Octave warranty cover?

The 15-year Octave mattress warranty covers repair or replacement in case of manufacturer errors.

What happens to returned Octave mattresses?

Returned Octave mattresses are donated to nearby community organizations or picked up by a local recycling partner, depending on regional restrictions.

Where is the Octave Mirage mattress made?

Octave Mirage is manufactured in Ontario and Alberta, Canada.

Does the Octave Mirage mattress need a special frame?

Octave Mirage works with any foundation, like an adjustable bed, solid foundation, or slatted base. Your Octave Mirage mattress will weigh at least 48 lb, so your bed frame must be sturdy enough to support both the mattress and your weight. You can buy a compatible foundation directly from Octave when you purchase your mattress.

Is Octave Mirage eco-conscious?

Octave’s mattress cover and layers were independently tested to make sure they’re safe and eco-conscious.

  • The top cover fabric was independently tested for harmful substances according to STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® (SH025 194423).
  • Each foam layer is CertiPUR-US® certified, meaning it meets high standards for emissions, content, performance, and durability.
How much does the Octave Mirage mattress cost?

Octave Mirage pricing ranges from $899 to $1,399, depending on the size you choose. A queen-size Octave Mirage is available for $1,199.

What makes Octave Mirage different from Octave Vista?

Octave Mirage is an upgrade from Octave Vista and offers better cooling, pressure-point relief, and support. Mirage’s top cover has twice as much cooling thread as the entry-level Model and has an extra half-inch of memory foam in the top layer for even more body-cushioning comfort. It also has a 1.5″ aerated foam layer for greater air circulation, which Vista doesn’t have.

However, Octave Vista is still an excellent entry-level memory foam mattress. It provides advanced cooling features and multi-zone support for a lower price tag at just $899 for a queen size.

What makes Octave Mirage different from Octave Horizon?

Octave Horizon is the best Octave mattress available, with greater motion isolation and even more cooling features. It contains a 2″ layer of ecoLuxe® cooling gel foam that conforms to your body for extra support and temperature control. The top cover also includes the most cooling nanofibres of any Octave mattress.

At $1,499 for a queen size, Octave Horizon comes with a higher price tag than Mirage. However, the added features make Octave Horizon an excellent upgrade and a smart investment.
