OSRAM Night Breaker Unlimited vs OEM / Original Headlight Bulbs

December 9, 2017

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 Unlimited’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 Nightbreaker Unlimited’s came out as the brightest set available from our testing at 29% brighter over basic or stock bulbs, and among the best out of all OSRAM bulbs. The Sylvania Silverstar Ultra’s were very close however at only 30 lumens or 2% behind the Night Breaker Unlimited’s. If your trying to decide between the two, either will provide a premium upgrade in terms of total brightness on the road.

In regards to the whiteness of these bulbs, they will be 16% whiter over stock at 3560k. That’ll be average whiteness for an upgraded kit, but nothing special. If you live in the US, you’ll probably have to order these online, as you won’t typically find them in local stores. Average cost is only about $25 on Amazon, and they come all the major bulb sizes too which is nice. If you’re looking for the brightest bulbs available, these are for you. If you want the whitest, then you may want to check out other options. Check out our brightest bulbs video to see them compared with the Siverstar Ultra’s.

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!
