Reverie R650 Adjustable Power Base Overview

Here at GoodBed, we're asked more and more frequently about adjustable bases, which got their start as a home version of an adjustable hospital bed. Now, of course, they look nothing like a piece of clinical equipment.

An adjustable base is an easy way to add functionality and comfort to an existing mattress. For more on adjustable bases in general, check out our Adjustable Base Buyer's Guide.

The Reverie company makes several adjustable bases, and their R650 is the most full-featured model they sell. Note that when we created our video, it was called the R600 -- it has since been renamed the R650.

The Reverie R650 has just about every feature currently available on an adjustable base, above and beyond the standard elevation and massage features you'll see on many models.

The base is available in twin XL, queen, king and California king sizes. For the two king sizes, it comes as a split configuration, with both sides of the bed able to be adjusted independently with its own remote control. (If you prefer the entire king-size bed to operate with one remote, that can be configured.)

The Reverie R650 has a total weight capacity of 850 pounds, which would include the weight of your mattress.

R650 Size Estimated price
Twin XL $1,800
Queen $2,000
King (split) $3,598
California king (split)   $3,598

Position and Elevation Features

The most basic adjustable bases raise only the head. The Reverie R650 goes far beyond that. You can raise the head and the foot, independently or together.

There is a "flat" button that returns the bed to the original position. In addition to being able to manually raise the head and foot however you like, there are some pre-set buttons. All of the pre-set buttons can be re-programmed by the user.

Anti-Snore: This is a very subtle elevation of the head, meant to gently alleviate snoring. You can enhance this feature by adding some tilt (see below).

Zero-G: This setting raises both head and foot a small amount, meant to be a position that takes the most pressure off of any one part of the body. The idea is to feel as if you are floating.

Custom (2): As the name suggests, you can save two preferred settings so you're able to return to them whenever you like.

Tilt

This is a very unusual feature on the Reverie R650 that allows you to tilt the entire bed in either direction -- with the foot lower than the head or vice versa. This function is independent of the elevation features, so you could (for example) raise the head of the bed and also tilt it forward.

We hear from our readers that a tilt function can help with getting out of bed. Some people also say the sleep better and breathe easier when their head is elevated. That's something you could accomplish with a simple head elevation feature, fine if you are a back sleeper. But if you like to sleep on your side or stomach, tilting the whole mattress can give you an elevated head but keep the surface of the bed flat, making it easier to change positions.

Wall-hugger feature

A feature not found on less expensive adjustable bases is a wall-hugger feature. When you raise the head of the Reverie R650 adjustable base, the entire base also rolls gently back. This is meant to keep the head of the bed closer to the wall, and to any bedside furniture you may have so your items are within easy reach even when the base is fully raised.

A wall-hugger feature might not sound like a big deal, but in our view it really is. An adjustable base without this feature will put you about 7" further away from your bedside table when the head is fully raised. In our opinion, a wall-hugger feature is a huge convenience.

Lumbar lift

This is another unusual feature found on the Reverie R650 Adjustable Power Base. A small panel in the upper middle of the bed -- roughly your lumbar area -- can be adjusted to push your mattress up into the small of your back. This effect is subtle, and will partly depend on what type of mattress you use, but we really did feel an extra lumbar support when we tried it.

Massage Features

The R650 Power Base also includes massage features, and the head and the foot can be operated independently or together.

Less common are the 10 available speeds for both head and foot, as well as a "wave" button that undulates the vibration between head and foot massage features. There are another four speeds for that wave function.

We also took a look at the massage motors themselves, which are suspended from the frame rather than solidly attached. In our view, this cuts down on noise, and also on vibration transferring to places other than your mattress -- like the floor. We found the massage motors to be quieter than on some other adjustable bases we've tried.


Wireless Remote + App

The remote control (or controls if you order a split king size) is wireless and rechargeable. The keypad layout is clear and easy to read, and is backlit so it's easier to see in the dark.

In addition to the controls, the remote can double as a flashlight with the push of a button.

The remote also controls the under-bed lighting. This is a handy feature that can illuminate the floor under the bed and make it easier to get in and out of bed without having to turn on a larger light. There three brightness levels for the underbed lighting on the R650 Adjustable Power Base.

In addition to the included remote, your base can also be controlled with Reverie Connect, a downloadable app for your smartphone. You can use to to control the bed as you would the remote, but the app includes more features, including scheduling, timers and alarms. For example, you program the bed to automatically go back to flat at a certain time, or to start raising the head when it's time to get up. The app uses your phone's Bluetooth feature to connect and control the base.

USB ports and charging

Like some other adjustable base models, the Reverie R650 includes USB ports. Most competing models situate these on the side of the frame, or somewhere behind the top corner. Reverie instead includes a small charging pad you can place on a bedside table. Use it to recharge the remote control or any other compatible devices. It can also function as a wireless charger for compatible phones.

Installation and Furniture

The Reverie R650 Power Base has three height options, depend on which of the included leg options you choose to use. You can choose to have the base sit 7" off the floor (using no legs), 10", 12" or 15" with the accessory legs.

The side of the base are covered in a nice looking fabric that needs no other furniture or accessories. Many people, however, will want to incorporate their existing bedroom furniture.

The Reverie R650 Power Base is designed to drop right into any full-frame bed furniture, like a sleigh bed, with no additional hardware.

If you want to attach a headboard, a headboard bracket kit is separately available.
