This Philips X-treme Vision vs OSRAM Night Breaker Plus post sees our two most popular high performance car headlight bulbs going head to head...

The Philips X-treme Vision and OSRAM Night Breaker Plus car headlight bulbs are made by leading bulb manufacturers and are designed to combat low visibility during the night; they are popular choices for someone looking for a brighter halogen bulb.

Both bulbs are performance products and are designed to deliver as much light on the road as possible. This is intended to make for safer night time driving - the more you can see, the safer you are, and more light means more time to react.

Both products are halogen bulbs, which use xenon gas to add extra brightness without increasing the Kelvin rating or wattage. This means that they do not generate any more heat than your standard bulb, hence remaining road legal.

Philips X-treme Vision

The Philips X-treme Vision is the replacement to the multi award winning Philips X-treme Power. The X-treme Vision bulb offers 20% more light on the road than its predecessor - that's a huge 100% more light on the road than a standard halogen bulb.

This bulb has both good performance qualities and good longevity with an impressive total life expectancy of 18-24 months. It has earned its name as the brightest halogen bulb and has won awards such as the Auto Express Review Best Buy, November 2011.



OSRAM Night Breaker Plus

The OSRAM Night Breaker Plus is another great headlight bulb from a premium manufacturer, offering a massive amount of light on the road. This performance bulb offers 90% more light on the road than a standard halogen and is fantastic at increasing visibility at night.

This popular car headlight bulb is another impressive product, offering 90% more light on the road, and again with a great life expectancy of 18-24 months.



So which bulb wins?

As you can see both of the bulbs are great performance products with fantastic longevity. Many of our customers say that OSRAM is the best value bulb but the overall customer favourite is the Philips. However, both are fantastic products with great longevity, so either bulb will offer you increased performance and light on the road.
