Titan Mattress Overview
Brooklyn Bedding is a titan when it comes to making high-quality and comfortable mattresses, so it makes sense that it chose the name Titan for one of its mattresses. Our Titan mattress review will go over what you need to know if you are considering this champion of a mattress.

Honest Brooklyn Bedding Titan Mattress Review Video
Below you’ll find our unbiased review video of the Titan mattress from Brooklyn Bedding.
Titan Materials And Design
The Titan mattress is a hybrid bed-in-a-box that is composed of four individual layers and totals 11″ thick:
- Base —The mattress uses a 2″ layer of dense polyfoam to provide a foundation for the coils above.
- Coil layer —The next layer consists of what the company calls its “TitanCaliber” pocketed coils. These are 6″ individually encased coils that together act as the primary support framework for the bed.
- Transition layer —On top of the coils is a 2″ layer of what the company calls its “TitanFlex” foam. This is a patented, proprietary foam that is supposed to add deep pressure relief and act as a transition from the firm coils below.
- Comfort layer —For the final layer, the bed uses a 1″ quilted top with gel memory foam. This layer serves as the true comfort layer of the mattress, however, as you will find out in the coming sections, the bed actually has more of a firm, neutral-foam feel.
Additionally, for a couple hundred dollars more, you can purchase an optional cooling top panel. We didn’t have a chance to test out the cooling panel model, but apparently, the company uses a similar material to what’s found in the Brooklyn Aurora mattress, which is one of the coolest sleeping beds on the market.
Titan Mattress Cover
Wrapping the four layers of foam and coils is a soft, non-removable cover that gives the bed a premium look. Because it’s not removable, that means you’ll have to spot clean the cover if you happen to get it dirty. The company recommends you use a mild detergent and water for cleaning purposes.
If the thought of a dirty cover freaks you out, you can always look into purchasing the Brooklyn Bedding Mattress Protector to help protect against dirt, grime and spills. Or you could always just shop among the hundreds of mattress protectors available on Amazon.

Feel And Firmness
In terms of firmness, we think the Titan hybrid mattress lands around a firm on our soft-to-firm scale. It’s one of the firmer mattresses we’ve ever tested. However, this is what Brooklyn Bedding was going for with this bed.
Although the comfort layer of this bed is made from gel memory foam, the mattress doesn’t have a memory foam feel. We think it has more of a firm, neutral-foam feel. In other words, the top layers don’t really contour or conform to your body the way memory foam does. Some people love a plush memory foam feel, and some people prefer a firmer more neutral-foam feel.
An added benefit of neutral-foam is that it tends to be more responsive than memory foam and that holds true with the Titan mattress. The 6″ coils give the bed a little bounce and the top layers snap back to position quickly after pressure is released off the bed.
This level of responsiveness is a good thing for active sleepers who move around a lot. Typically, these types of sleepers find it much easier to switch between positions on responsive beds.
We do not think the Titan mattress sleeps hot. We think it sleeps more temperature neutral or even on the cool side, depending on your weight. We’ve found firmer beds tend to sleep a little cooler than soft ones since you sleep more on top of the mattress rather than in it. In other words, you won’t immediately sink into the bed, and the top layers won’t engulf you.
With that said, we wouldn’t consider the Titan mattress an actively cooling bed either. The mattress doesn’t incorporate any special textiles or phase change material that makes the bed cool-to-the-touch. We more so gave it the neutral/cool rating based on its firmness.
Is Titan A Good Mattress For Couples?
If both partners are above average in terms of weight, we think the Titan mattress is an excellent option for couples. The bed performs well in terms of edge support and motion isolation.
First, the bed does a pretty good job of limiting motion. The top layers deaden the bounce provided by the coils fairly well.
When we put a glass of water on the bed and moved around on the mattress, the water in the glass doesn’t move all that much despite the movement on the bed. This is a good indicator that you won’t be disturbed by your partner’s movements during the night.
To learn more about the motion isolation properties of mattresses and why it’s important have a look at this page we’ve put together on how to judge motion isolation.
Next, we found that the Titan mattress provides extremely solid edge support. In fact, it’s one of the better beds we’ve ever tested in this department. As you roll over towards the side, you’ll find that the perimeter continues to provide a good amount of support.
This is an especially important topic for couples who share a smaller size bed like a full or queen. A bed with good edge support (like Titan) means there is more useful surface area for both partners to spread out while still feeling properly supported. With some beds out there, you’ll notice the edges start to give out a little under pressure.
Titan Mattress Sleeper Analysis
How a mattress feels will depend on your weight and favorite sleeping position.
We do not think the Titan mattress is ideal for primary side sleepers. The bed is just a little too firm, even for larger individuals. Folks who sleep predominately on their side generally prefer softer mattresses that are more gentle around their pressure points. Ultimately, we just don’t think the Titan mattress provides enough pressure relief for these types of sleepers.
If you primarily sleep on your side, check out our list of the Best Mattresses For Side Sleepers. This list even has some options for heavy people who spend a lot of time on their side.
Back And Stomach Sleepers
Unlike side sleepers, back and stomach sleepers typically prefer firmer mattresses that provide a lot of support under their lower back and trunk. Needless to say, the Titan mattress delivers on that front, as we chose it as the best firm mattress of 2021.
The bed is extremely supportive. Even Dillon (our heaviest team member) found that the mattress did a great job of keeping his hips in proper alignment with the rest of his body when he was on his back and stomach.
Because the Brooklyn Bedding Titan mattress is so firm we can’t really recommend it for combo sleepers, particularly those who favor side sleeping. The exception to this would be a combo sleeper who avoids side sleeping and only sleeps on their back and front.
Petite And Average Sized Individuals
The Titan mattress will work for small and medium-sized individuals, but we think it’s almost overkill for small body types. Remember, an average size person will think the mattress feels firm, so a petite person will think it feels even firmer. As such, we’d only recommend the Titan mattress for petite sized people who primarily sleep on their back or stomach and prefer an extra firm feel.
The Titan mattress is ideal for heavy people, as this is who the bed was ultimately designed for. There are three primary factors that are responsible for why this is the case.
- The mattress is thicker than the average bed-in-a-box. Typically, thicker beds are more ideal for heavier sleepers since they’re harder to wear down and bottom out (i.e. there’s more material between the person and the foundation).
- The mattress is purposely designed to be extra firm. The firmer a mattress is, the more support it offers for your body. Those who weigh over ~230 lbs require beds that are more supportive, and Titan definitely meets that expectation.
- The bed uses premium 6″ pocketed coils for its primary support structure. The company states these coils provide “industrial support”. Coils are not only more durable but also more supportive than dense poly foams that all-foam beds like Casper and Leesa use for their foundations. That’s because coils provide a little resistance against pressure, which is key for supporting a large amount of pressure.
Titan Mattress Price And Coupon Code
From a MSRP standpoint, the Titan mattress is priced just above the average bed-in-a-box. However, as you will find out below, the Titan mattress is well-constructed and incorporates high-quality materials. In other words, this isn’t your typical three layer, all-foam bed-in-a-box. Here’s how pricing breaks down by size.
|King / Cal King||$1,249|
Does Brooklyn Bedding Titan Offer Promo Codes?
Brooklyn Bedding is very generous in terms of sales and discounts. It seems like they regularly offer coupon codes and promo codes to make the mattresses even more affordable. We’ve even seen them offer a 20% off discount code before. Check the green box on the right hand side of the screen to see what kind of promotion they’re currently offering.
Brooklyn Titan Mattress Review Verdict
In all honesty, the Titan mattress is not our favorite bed ever. However, the Slumber Yard team is not the target demographic here. All of our team members fall below the 250 pound mark.
With that in mind, we think it’s a solid bed. It’s well-constructed and serves the exact purpose that Brooklyn Bedding designed it for. Overall, if you weigh more than 250 pounds and spend the majority of the night on your back or stomach, you should seriously consider this mattress.
