PLEASE NOTE: Results and recommendations on this page are based on our version 1.0 test bench. For the latest results, please see our test chart and recommendations pages which are results from our version 2.0 testing.

We’ll be comparing the OSRAM Night Breaker Laser’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 Night Breaker Laser’s came out at 13% brighter over basic or stock bulbs, but fell a whopping 16% behind the Night Breaker Unlimited’s. Whiteness is where it only gets worse.

They tested at 3400k, which is a decent 10% whiter over stock, however they fall short of most other upgrade kits, and comparing them to the Unlimited’s they are 6% less white. Lastly, the Laser’s only come in a few sizes, whereas the Unlimited’s offer quite a lot more sizes. If you’re looking for the best OSRAM bulbs, go with the Night Breaker Unlimited’s. If you want the best regardless of brand, check out some other options available.
