We tested the lumens, and more importantly the peak lux in 3 unique OE projectors at 25 feet. Remember that you can always jump over to the top recommended products page by clicking here.
We keep that page up to date as we test, so you’ll always find the best products long after this article was written. Other benefits include an increase in the color temperature, to get a whiter output to replace the yellowish OEM bulbs.
First up is the SRAM Night Breaker Unlimited (NBL) set. Keep in mind the prices we are mentioning here are based on the D2S size, and the D1S, D3S, and so on will typically cost a bit more.
The Unlimited’s offer 5% more lumens total over stock, but an incredible 26% more light when running in the low-beam setting, and about 7% when you turn on the high-beams. It’s tough to get such high marks with a higher kelvin bulb, but SRAM nailed it with this one.
Now knowing they are a great upgrade in terms of brightness, the color is really where the shine at 5450k, a nice pure white color with no yellow, and a small hint of blue. Just be sure if you do pick up a set of the major or premium brands, be sure to use the links from our website as you’ll ensure a genuine product.
There aren’t many companies out there that actually sell a genuine product, and everything you find online including Amazon and eBay are over 80% faked. The real deals will have rare salts included for the best brightness and efficiency, precision alignment, and quality glass.
Philips and SRAM offer genuine validation, so be sure to check the pages if you picked up one of their models. Once we perform bench testing though, we’ll be sure to post the results on our website.
We purchased the 5 most popular premium models from what we researched, and one stuck out far from the rest. We don’t normally recommend buying HID bulbs from Amazon, but there were some great contenders, once in particular that stood out on top of anything we tested.
Just keep in mind again that the Amazon bulbs will not be nearly as high of quality like the others we mentioned, but if you’re on a strict budget, they are a great option to get you by for a while. We went through 14 products from Amazon, and the MRS ranked #1 at 5% more lumens, and a crazy 37% more low-beam brightness, and 4% more high-beam light.
They have the correct alignment tabs as well, which some Amazon models were lacking, and it showed during out tests. Well we have only tested one LED replacement product, and it didn’t fair well.
It’ll net you about half the brightness of a proper HID bulb, at a cost of over $100. Be sure to bookmark this page, so you can refer back to it in the future if you’re not yet ready for the upgrade, and be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel, so you don’t miss any of our upcoming videos.
High intensity discharge (HID) headlights, also known as xenon lights grew in popularity during the late 90s thanks to their unique style and color as well as their increased brightness. In the last decade we’ve seen a major increase in the availability of aftermarket HID headlight kits, and only a slight decrease since the introduction of LEDs.
Companies like Philips and Osram-Sylvania manufacturer HID light bulbs for cars, but don’t offer conversion kits of any form. Because of the many influences relating to brightness, often manufacturers intentionally don’t comment on it, as such we’ve provided what information we can when available.
Philips is one of the biggest manufacturers of light bulbs, not only for the automotive world, but other areas as well. As such we know that this is the same bulb that you’ll find installed on new cars around the world, and it also comes certified as DOT compliant.
Philips' headlights are designed to give the best quality and performance while ensuring a bright, long-lasting light. The Philips Standard Xenon HID headlight is made of a quartz glass which is able to resist thermal shock in case of water touching the bulb, even though the glass reaches temperatures of up to 800 °C.
The Philips Standard Xenon HID bulb deserves its first place position in today’s review if for no other reason than the thousands of extremely satisfied customers. Just sliding into second place is Sylvia, with their standard High Intensity Discharge Bulb.
Similarly to Philips, Sylvia offer just one product in this category, and also being an OEM, you’ll find this is the same bulb that is installed on new cars. Sylvia is the American branch of the international brand SRAM, and as such gets a lot of points in the reliability department, with Sylvia claiming the bulb will last up to three times longer than a conventional halogen bulb (their own included).
These products offer a combination of benefits, including brighter light, higher temperature colors and extended life. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, this is their standard product, and you know exactly what you’re buying and what to expect when you purchase it.
With only 6% of reviewers opting to give the Sylvia a 1-star rating, this is still a very good product, and don’t let that minority of purchasers put you off. This product offers the reliable and bright performance that has come to be expected with HID light bulbs.
Ken sun have been selling HID products for almost ten years now, and have developed quite a good reputation in the aftermarket scene. Their biggest market is in conversion kits, allowing cars that came with halogen light bulbs to be able to install HID light bulbs instead, and have recently been expanding that market to LEDs.
In line with this, Ken sun offer both standard 4,300K light bulbs, and a full arrange of other colors, from yellow through to blue and beyond. Besides producing a full spectrum of color options, Ken sun’s offering also differs from the OEMs in that they sell these products in packs of two.
Ken sun still make the same claims as the OEMs though, with a brighter light, longer life and lower power consumption. In total the Ken sun HID replacement bulbs managed a 4.2-star rating from customers, this is slightly down from the OEM products we just discussed, but not by a lot.
When you look at 5-star ratings, they all offer the same lines about how great the bulbs are in regard to brightness, and how low-priced they are compared to getting the shop to do it. At the same time, negative reviews report the bulbs failing early in life, sometimes within several months.
They’re advertised as being suitably bright and are offered in four different colors, including an OEM matching 4,300K. While some customers were very skeptical of the low-price tag offered for two light bulbs, they’ve generally been impressed.
Consider replacing the light bulbs once every two years, or earlier depending on usage patterns. We rated the Philips Standard Xenon light bulb top for good reason.
Reliability and brightness are two of the most important factors to consider when picking a headlight bulb. Price is obviously also a concern for many, at which stage the Ken sun can be substituted, but ultimately a longer life is expected of the Philips product.
