The SoundAsleep Dream Series Air Mattress is one of the most popular air mattresses in the world, and for good reason. It is on the more expensive end of the spectrum and comes in Twin, Twin XL, Queen and King).
This mattress is perfect if you need an airbed for occasional household use. It is a higher end option. The flocktop is thicker, the bed is taller and there is an ultra-convenient built-in pump. If you are picky about bed height, this is worth the purchase. Otherwise, there are more budget friendly options available with similar features.

This air mattress has both a 30 day return policy from Amazon and a one year warranty covered by SoundAsleep. You can call or email SoundAsleep at any time for support. It should be noted that SoundAsleep specifies it’s air mattresses are not for everyday use, therefore any issues relating to such use are not covered under warranty.
Inflation & Deflation
Set up and tear down are a breeze with the built in pump in this SoundAsleep air mattress. The pump requires an outlet for power. Once plugged in, just turn the dial to inflate or deflate.
Both inflation and deflation take approximately four minutes. You do have to watch the process, the pump requires manual shut off. Failing to do so can lead to the pump overheating. If it does overheat, the system is designed to shut the power off and resume in thirty minutes.
SoundAsleep has developed a pump that is twenty percent quieter than its competitors. While this is an improvement, it is still far from a quiet experience.
The SoundAsleep Dream Series Air Mattress comes equipped with a drawstring travel bag. The bag is made of quality nylon and has thick strings, made to last. The bag has extra room, making it easy to fit the mattress in after each use. This saves time and stress.
The Queen folds down to 17 x 13 x 7 inches, making this model and the others a convenient size.
The mattress weighs similar to standard for built-in pump models. The Twin weighs about 14lbs, Twin XL is 14lbs, Queen is 20lbs and the King is close to 24lbs. These weights are not suitable for backpacking or other lightweight trips.
The bottom of the air mattress has SureGrip technology, ensuring the air mattress won’t drift or slide. This is super helpful on hard surfaces where air mattresses tend to move more.
The ComfortCoil technology adds shape and support to the air mattress. The Queen has 40 coils, each one helps maintain a flat sleep surface, as well as mattress firmness.
It is made with a multilayer, 15 gauge puncture-resistant material. You can rest easy knowing the air mattress is durable enough to withstand whatever life may throw at it.
Ideal Use Cases
This model is designed for a niche market. That being said, if you want to use this air mattress in more outdoor environments you can, however there will be a higher risk of damage.
Occasional Home Use
Yes. This is exactly what the SoundAsleep Dream Series with ComfortCoil was made for. The simple inflation/deflation and storage makes this the perfect choice for occasional use. The higher mattress adds a bit of luxury to your air bed, while the extra thick flocktop increases comfort and ensures your bedding won’t slip. This higher end mattress has features that make your or your guests’ air bed experience more enjoyable.
Everyday Home Use
Depends. SoundAsleep clearly advertises this mattress is not made for everyday use. But, is any air mattress made for everyday use? If you plan on using this as a bed replacement, the built-in pump and extra bed height makes it worthwhile. Remember, everyday use voids the warranty.
Not suggested. If your campsite has power, you could use this air mattress. However, it needs power to both inflate and deflate, so make sure you have enough. Since this air mattress is a greater investment than other options, I would advise against using it in such rough conditions.
No. This air mattress not only requires power, but it is also ridiculously heavy for backpackers. Look for manual, lightweight options.
The travel bag and portable size makes this a good choice for travel. It will fit easily in a car. Keep in mind this product is higher end. To take care of the air mattress, use caution when setting up and ensure the area is clean and free from any possible puncture points. Keep dry and use in temperate conditions.
Things We Love
SoundAsleep offers the Dream Series with ComfortCoil in four sizes. I love having so many options to pick the best one to fit my life.
Height is a major reason why air mattresses feel like you’re “roughing it”. No one likes to crawl out of bed in the morning, and for some, it can be painful and limiting. The 18 inch tall bed makes you feel like you’re a step above an air mattress. For those that struggle with low furniture, this is a significant feature.
The mattress has a little cubby next to the pump for power cord storage. It is a properly sized compartment that keeps the cord protected when not in use. No need to worry about tripping over the cord while packing the air mattress away.
Know Before Buying
Everyday Use is Not Suggested
Once again, it is important to highlight that SoundAsleep does not suggest using this product for a bed replacement. This use will not be covered under warranty.
Great Customer Service
The US based customer service team is highly reviewed. You can call or email them for any issues you may have with your air mattress.
When the air mattress is filled to a certain level of firmness, some find the middle of the mattress is higher than the sides and that the edge border can’t maintain an even surface. This leads to slipping and sliding off the bed. Depending on your firmness preferences, this could be an issue. If you deflate the mattress a touch, the middle will sink enough that the border will hold you level.
Given the price, I would’ve expected more versatility from an air mattress. The thick flocktop and built-in pump are nice features, however this air mattress is really only for occasional household use. Household use suits many buyers, but there are more budget friendly options with decent quality as well.
