Battle of the Bulbs: Philips X-treme Vision Xenon vs. OSRAM Xenarc Night Breaker Unlimited

With a wide range of Xenon HID bulbs now available on the market, it can be difficult to decide which one is best for you.

Take a quick look at the differences between the X-treme Vision Xenon and the Xenarc Night Breaker Unlimited:

Philips X-treme Vision Xenon OSRAM Xenarc Night Breaker Unlimited
4800K 4350K
Longer light beam than standard Longer light beam than standard
50% more light on the road in comparison to a standard Xenon HID 70% more light on the road in comparison to a standard Xenon HID
20% more brightness than a standard Xenon 5% whiter light than standard Xenon HID

As you can see, they both perform pretty well in comparison to a standard Xenon HID bulb, but how do they square up to each other in the ring?

 

Round One: Kelvin Rating

X-treme Vision Xenon’s impressive first blow of 4800K is no match for Night Breaker Unlimited’s 4350K. The Philips bulb’s higher Kelvin rating means that the light produced will be whiter and crisper than its opponent.

However, don’t forget that the OSRAM Xenarc Night Breaker Unlimited still produces a light that’s 5% whiter than a standard Xenon bulb.

Winner: Philips X-treme Vision Xenon

 

Round Two: Beam Length

Both bulbs produce a longer light beam than a standard Xenon HID. This will help to give you more time to react to potential obstacles on the road ahead, and simply lights up more of the road in general – great for those country drives.

Winner: It's a tie!
 

Round Three: Light on the Road

It’s the last round, and tensions are high. X-treme Vision Xenon puts up a great fight in the closing seconds with 50% more light on the road in comparison to a standard Xenon bulb, but the Xenarc Night Breaker Unlimited has the final punch, improving upon that by 20%.

With 70% more light on the road, the OSRAM bulb illuminates the road better, helping you to see obstacles and potential hazards with greater clarity and ease in comparison to the X-treme Vision Xenon.

Winner: OSRAM Xenarc Night Breaker Unlimited

 

The results are in…

It’s not the KO you were expecting – each bulb performs well in its own way. If you’re looking for a maximum performance bulb with the added bonus of a whiter beam, then the Philips X-treme Vision Xenon is a great choice in this case. If you’d rather go for more a bit more light on the road, the OSRAM Xenarc Night Breaker Unlimited is your winner.
