Sealy Adjustable Base Review
Take a look at our comprehensive review on Sealy’s three adjustable bases, including the Ease 2.0
Last Updated: January 5, 2021McKenzie Dillon
Just so you know, Sealy and TempurPedic are the same company, and therefore they offer virtually the same three adjustable bed frames with a wireless remote. The main three models are the Ease 2.0, Ergo, and Ergo Extend. In this review we discuss the main features for each adjustable bed base. As a heads up, there are subtle differences with these bed frames depending on the retailer from which you purchase. We tried to do our best to approximate everything for you.

Review Of The 3 Sealy Adjustable Base Models
Sealy is owned by industry veteran TempurPedic, so you can expect the same type of premium products from the folks over at Sealy, including adjustable bases. Usually a brand will focus on making one adjustable base, but Sealy went ahead and gave the people three different bases to choose from. Here’s a quick summary of what you can expect from each base:
- Sealy Ease 2.0 — The most affordable model with standard features you’ll find in most adjustable bases.
- TEMPUR Ergo — Second-tier model which incorporates essentially everything you’d want in a power base.
- TEMPUR Ergo Extend — The most expensive model from the trio with features you didn’t even know you wanted.
This review will explore the highlights of the adjustable bases, features they come with, and the features they omit. See below for the exact sections, and click on the links to jump to where you want to start in this Sealy adjustable base review:
Sealy Adjustable Bed Design
We honestly think each Sealy adjustable base will go well with any room style or design. Ease and Ergo are supported by a black metal frame, and upholstered with a dark grey fabric. The Ergo Extend, however, comes with a padded metal frame that gives it a more luxurious look than the other two models. Either way, they should blend into the decor you already have in your bedroom, or will be a great start for a blank canvas.
The motor on the power base was one of the quietest we’ve ever tested. It was more like a soft purr than a roar if you know what we’re talking about. The bed frame itself is also real sturdy and 100% squeak free.
Size And Dimensions
You can get the Sealy Adjustable Base in a range of sizes including twin XL, queen, king, split king, CA king, and a split CA king. We really appreciate how many sizes they offer, especially since it’s difficult to find a brand who makes both a standard king, standard CA king, and split options of the two.
We got out the measuring tape to find out how far each Sealy adjustable base allows you to adjust. Each of the three Sealy adjustable bed frames allows you to adjust the head of the frame up to 57°. The foot of the bed raises up to 50° on the Ease 2.0, up to 46° on the Ergo, and up to 40° on the Ergo Extend.
Wireless Remote And Features
We want to go over a few of the features you saw on the chart earlier in this post that aren’t so self-explanatory. Let’s take a look.
- Massage — Ergo and Ergo Extend both include a three-speed massager, which is nice, but it didn’t knock our socks off. We aren’t saying it’s bad, but it’s pretty similar to all the other adjustable bed frames we’ve tested out. Considering the base’s prices, we thought it’d be slightly more substantial. With that said, you feel a nice little vibration and the noise isn’t distracting to the point where it’ll throw you off from your book or TV show.
- Zero Gravity — Zero gravity mode (ZG on the remote) is available on all three models. This was a position first invented and used by NASA, and it almost makes you feel like you’re weightless. It also helps in improving blood flow, keeps stomach acid from entering your esophagus to prevent heartburn, helps snoring by opening airways and keeping your tongue in place, plus more.
- Flashlight and Other Features — Ergo and Ergo Extend also come with a flashlight, under-bed USB ports and lighting, anti-snore button, a memory button so you can program your favorite position, anti-snore mode, and a preset for watching TV.
- Adjustable Legs — You can make the legs higher or lower on each Sealy adjustable base, depending on how much space you want under the bed frame. They start at 3” to make the bed height 11.3”, and you can go up to a 9” leg to make the height of the bed about 17.3.”
Sealy Adjustable Base Prices
Prices for Sealy’s adjustable bases are generally more expensive than most of the others we’ve tested like Nectar, Bear, and Nolah. Since Sealy is affiliated with the luxury bedding brand TempurPedic, however, we aren’t too surprised.
|Queen — Ease 2.0||$849|
|Queen — Ergo||$1,299|
|Queen — Ergo Extend||$2,199|
Prices start at about $850 for a queen size Sealy Ease 2.0 Adjustable Base, and go all the way up to around $2,200 for a queen size Ergo Extend. Though, we want to note that you can get an Ease 2.0 Adjustable Base for cheaper on Amazon — around $700.
We also want to mention your king, split king, CA king, and split CA king will ship to your home in two boxes, and you connect them during the setup process.
Ease vs Ergo vs Ergo Extend
If you’re wondering what a pillow tilt is, it adjusts the very top of your bed frame so your head is perfectly positioned to look towards your TV with little to zero effort. It’s the main feature that makes the Ergo Extend stand out from Ergo and of course Ease 2.0, but if you twisted our arms, we’d pass on it for the money it costs.
The other is that Ergo has two massage zones while the Ergo Extend model has four; one more in the head and foot. Most people will be perfectly fine with two though, so we wouldn’t call that a major selling point for Ergo Extend.
So is it worth the extra money to splurge for Ergo Extend for a pillow tilt and a massager with a little more vibration? Ergo Extend is $900 more expensive than the Ergo. So if you ask us, we’d probably go for the middle-tier power base. Unfortunately, though, the Ease 2.0 is the most widely available of the three, and you might have trouble finding the Ergo and Ergo Extend. With that said, Ease 2.0 is great if you want something basic, low-priced, that’ll get the job done.
Sealy Adjustable Base Review Verdict
For the average person looking for a high-quality adjustable bed frame, we’re going to have to go with the Ergo model. It has everything you could possibly want in an adjustable bed frame, and it’s moderately priced compared to the Ergo Extend.
If you have the money to spend and you like buying the best of the best, the Ergo Extend is the most premium choice and without a doubt a nice adjustable base. For those of you on a budget, we would suggest you take a look at our other adjustable bed frame reviews. There are options for similar pricing, but with more features. Unless, of course, you’re a diehard TempurPedic/Sealy fan, then we aren’t going to stop you.
Other Sealy Adjustable Bed Reviews
- Amazon Reviews: Most Sealy purchases take place in-store, so there aren’t a ton of Amazon reviews about its adjustable bed frame, even though certain models are available through the online retailer.

Sealy Company Policies
Buying an adjustable base online is pretty different from purchasing one in-store, aside from the fact you can do it from the comfort of your own home. Though, we want to mention that these policies are a little different than many of the other online adjustable bases we’ve tested out like the Lucid Power Base who comes with free shipping, free returns, a 30-night trial, and 10-year warranty.
- Risk-free trial period: Amazon’s 30-day return policy
- Warranty policy: Nationwide limited warranty that protects from manufacturing defects
- Shipping: In-store purchases only, or Amazon shipping prices
Comparing Sealy vs Nectar Adjustable Base
Both the Sealy Adjustable Base and the Nectar Adjustable Base are sleek and should fit well into any room, but there are a few things that separate the two bed frames. Unlike the Sealy adjustable frames, the Nectar version can be purchased online easily. It also has a much more powerful massage feature. On the other hand, the Sealy Ease 2.0 Adjustable Base is more affordable than the Nectar one (although the Ergo and Ergo-Extend are more expensive). Also, all three Sealy models are available in more sizes than Nectar.
Benefits Of An Adjustable Base
Of course getting an adjustable bed frame is convenient for watching TV and reading in bed, but did you know they can also help improve your overall health? There are numerous different positions you can place yourself in, and certain ones can target joint pain, back pain, and even help your significant other stop aggressively snoring (hopefully).
While we can’t say all these problems will be solved 100% of the time with an adjustable base, there are people out there who claim it’s really helped. My (Slumber Yard McKenzie Dillon) significant other snored like a lawn mower before we got our Lucid Adjustable Base, now I sleep soundly through the night without having someone snorting in my ear. But aside from all that, it’s still a nice way to relax in bed with a good book or your favorite Netflix show. So if that’s the main reason you want one, we don’t blame you.
Setting Up Your Adjustable Base
If you’ve ever had to put together furniture from a retailer like IKEA or Wayfair, you have a general idea of what it’s like to put together a Sealy adjustable base. All you’ll need to do is:
- Screw in the four legs of the bed frame
- Plug in the power cord and other cables
- Combine the two bed frame sides if you get a king or CA king
- Take out the trash
As you can see, the whole process is pretty straight forward and it took us about 30 minutes with two people. We assume you’ll have the same experience.
How To Set Up Sealy Adjustable Bed Frame
Your bed frame should be delivered in about 1-2 weeks, but that depends from which retailer you purchase from.
Sealy sells several different types of mattresses, pillows and even a dog bed.
You can purchase a mattress from Sealy in many different bedding and furniture stores. Head over to their website and type in your zip code to find the nearest retailer near you.
Yes, all three adjustable bases should come with a child locking feature so it’s locked in place while you have your back turned. Check your manual or reach out to customer service to find out how to enable it.
Prices start around $850 for a queen size Sealy Ease 2.0 Adjustable Base, and go up to $2,200 for the queen Ergo Extend.
