We’ll be comparing the Philips CrystalVision Ultra’s to your original headlight bulbs to find out the real differences including brightness, whiteness, and cost, so you can make an informed decision about your replacement upgrade.

First, we’ll start with the brightness. The CrystalVision Ultra’s tested at 5% less bright or dimmer vs basic or stock bulbs.

This is because Philips is going for a xenon look with these bulbs, however the color temperature came out to k, which is a decent 18% whiter over OEM, but the X-treme vision %’s will get you the same whiteness while being 21% brighter than these. These in my option are just a complete fail for Philips. Cost might have saved them, however average asking price is around $27 on Amazon. If they’re the only ones left lying on the shelf, they’ll get the job done, but avoid them if at all possible.

Check out our videos including the top 3 brightest and the top 3 whitest, whichever interests you most. Be safe out there, and until next time!

Best car headlight bulbs

While the technology dates back to the sixties, and LEDs are now the lighting of choice for car makers, development of halogen headlamp bulbs hasn’t stopped.

Producers have long been pushing build tolerances to create brighter bulbs, with the best promising per cent more light somewhere in the beam and Philips has just upped that increase to per cent. To see how this new bulb compares with existing rivals, we put 10 brands to the test in the light tunnel.

How we tested them

With travel restrictions in mind, we sent our samples (which were bought to prevent filtering) to Philips’ light tunnel in Aachen, Germany. The bulbs were fitted to a BMW 3 Series headlamp unit, and we observed the results via video conference and multiple cameras.

The test was for single-filament H7 bulbs, and we recorded our Figure of Merit (FOM) that combines light at 50 metres and 75 metres in front of the car. We also measured beam length, the brightest spot and the amount of light over 20 lux. These are not alignment dependent, unlike the FOM. We also checked maximum output to ensure compliance with regulations.

The ranking is an average of two bulbs’ performances, which we converted to percentages to accurately reflect the differences in beams. Prices are for a pair of bulbs and are what we paid including any discounts.

LEDs vs halogen bulbs

Alongside its two new halogen bulbs, Philips has also launched a pair of LED products that are designed to replace conventional bulbs. We tested the flagship UltinonPro HL alongside our halogen bulbs, and it would’ve romped our test. It recorded a percentage score of , with a much brighter and wider metre beam that had a sharp cut-off and no glare.

However, these replacement LED bulbs aren’t legal for road use in the UK – they can’t meet the legal requirements of a filament bulb because they don’t have a filament. This is a prime case of legislation not keeping up with technology.

One reason for the slow pace of change is the presence of poor-quality imports. We also tested a popular online LED bulb, but while the beam length was similar, there were significant amounts of illegal glare for oncoming drivers. Its 92 per cent beam rating was bettered by most of our halogen lamps, too.

Verdict

This was a closer test than we have seen before, and it delivered a surprise winner, with Twenty20’s plus per cent bulb outperforming some much bigger names. Philips’ new per cent bulb takes the runner-up spot, while our H4 champion from Osram completes the podium.

Reviews

Twenty20 Daylight

Previous performances from Twenty20, which is a range stocked by online retailer Auto Bulbs Direct, gave no indication that the Daylight would be a potential test winner. With Megalight branding on the base plate, we suspect that this is another bulb to come out of the former GE factory in Budapest. Consistency was good, with two top-performing bulbs helping it to take the FOM test by a big margin, while it won the beam length test with a narrower lead. A shock win, but well deserved.

Philips RacingVision GT

As we’ve seen before, Philips leads halogen bulb development, and now offers this plus per cent lamp. It takes the runner-up spot but by a narrower margin over rivals than the promised performance increase might suggest. It topped the bright spot test, had the second-best FOM and a beam length of metres, but overall brightness saw it rank sixth in a close-run test, which denied it a debut win.

Osram Night Breaker Laser

There’s no repeat of its H4 test victory for Osram, but the Night Breaker Laser is still a top performer in H7 guise. As with most rivals here, it promises per cent more brightness and this time with a metre beam length. Our test, which measures the beam down to 30 lumens, saw an average length just shy of 94 metres, which put Osram sixth. It topped the beam brightness test, though, which helped it to secure a podium.

Ring Pro +%

A new addition to Halfords’ range, the Ring bulbs promise ‘original equipment technology’, which is supported by the GE branding on the base plate and its Hungarian manufacture. We doubt there’s much difference between this and the Halfords-branded bulbs, because the packaging is similar. In the tunnel it had a bright hotspot close to the metre mark which helped it to fifth in the FOM test, plus its beam length was just over 94m.

Halfords Advanced % Brighter

This year’s test was one of the closest we’ve seen, the prime reason being that many of our bulbs are likely to have come from the same Budapest producer. Halfords’ own brand has Alite on the base plate, but the performance was very similar to the Ring Pro. To the naked eye in the tunnel they were difficult to separate, with both having good hotspots and sharp cut-off lines. They had similar brightness results and a beam length of just over 94 metres, too. The Pro’s slight advantage in the FOM test gave it the edge.

Ring Xenon

Another Alite-produced bulb and another very similar performance to the Halfords duo. The hotspot was a little low on one of the bulbs, and that’s reflected in a slightly lower FOM rating and a beam that reached an average of 91 metres. The Xenon excelled in its overall beam brightness, where it came a very close second to Osram’s Night Breaker Laser. In the tunnel it had the same sharp cut off and kept glare to a minimum.

Philips X-tremeVision Pro

As performance is increased, lifetime is reduced, and this second new bulb from Philips aims to provide a different brightness and durability balance. Philips claims close to double the life of the GT for the Pro, at hours. The beam length for the Pro topped its stablemate at metres, but it was some way off in the FOM rating and could only manage ninth place in the overall brightness ranking.

Tungsram Megalight Ultra +

Tungsram, formerly known as GE, completes the batch of bulbs produced at its Hungarian factory. On the light tunnel wall it had a wide hotspot and clear cut off, but consistency between the two bulbs wasn’t quite as close as the Ring or Halfords pair. The hotspot was a little lower on one bulb, which hurt its FOM rating and saw its beam length dip below 90 metres.

GT Ultra

Promising ‘just’ per cent, it was no surprise to see the GT Ultra, which is part of online retailer Powerbulbs’ offering, at the lower end of the results. The difference could be seen in the tunnel, with the beam lacking the brightness of the best, while the cut off wasn’t as well defined. Beam length was under 89 metres and the FOM rating of 87 was more than 10 points behind the next bulb and almost 40 off our winner.

PIAA Hyper Arros

As with the GT Ultra, this Korean-built bulb from Japanese lighting specialist PIAA promises plus per cent ‘light appearance’ and a 3, Kelvin beam colour. Whatever ‘light appearance’ is, it doesn’t translate into beam performance, because the PIAA finished last in all the tests, and by quite a margin in most. Beam length was just over 87 metres compared with the 94 of the best. A high price to pay for a whiter beam.

We’ll be comparing the Philips XtremeVision %’s to your original headlight bulbs to find out the real differences including brightness, whiteness, and cost, so you can make an informed decision about your replacement upgrade.

First, we’ll start with the brightness. The XtremeVision % came out at 12% brighter over basic or stock bulbs, and only 4% behind the newer % version.

Whiteness testing came in at only k, which is a decent 10% whiter over stock, and about 8% less white vs. the % version. You’ll want to grab these ones if you can’t find the % kit in your size headlight or fog light, as those only come in a few sizes currently, whereas the %’s have a lot more choices for size. The %’s were the brightest among all Philips bulbs tested, and the %’s came in second place. Average cost was about $26 on Amazon, which is a bit more expensive than the % version. If you want the best regardless of brand, check out some other options available, but these are a respectable choice if you need a specific size not found elsewhere.

Check out our videos including the top 3 brightest and the top 3 whitest, whichever interests you most. Be safe out there, and until next time!

Therefore, in order not to become limp at all, I left the tent under the noisy copulation of Vicki and Ivan. I decided that it was time to visit my mistress. Moreover, as Vitalik noted, signs of life have already begun to show in our tent. Putting my head in there, I was able to verify this myself: all the signs of life were on everyone's face, or rather.

I did not find signs of sleep.
