Review: Osram Night Breaker Unlimited, D1S





Introduction
The dangers in terms of limited visibility are clear: It is a factor in 2.8 million accidents, 23,000 fatal crashes and 2,300 pedestrian deaths each year, according to the Motor Vehicle Lighting Council.  Dim headlight bulbs and hazy plastic headlight lenses or surfaces may lead to this reduced visibility, putting you, your passengers and other cars at risk. The AAIA Car Care Council found that 26 percent of the cars it inspected had issues with their lighting system.
視野受限的危害是顯而易見的:根據汽車照明委員會,它是每年造成280萬宗意外,23000宗致命車禍和2300行人死亡的一個因素。昏暗的車燈燈泡和朦朧的塑料大燈透鏡或表面可能導致這種能見度降低,把你,你的乘客和其他車輛處於危險之中。AAIA汽車護理會發現,他們進行檢修的汽車入面,26%的照明系統出現問題。

On the other hand, according to Ministry of Transportation, Government of Ontario, you are
"Overdriving (I have also seen people call it outdrive) your headlights when you go so fast that your stopping distance is farther than you can see with your headlights. This is a dangerous thing to do, because you may not give yourself enough room to make a safe stop. Reflective road signs can mislead you as well, making you believe you can see farther than you really can."
50km/h = 30m
70km/h = 40m
80km/h = 60m
另一方面,根據安大略政府交通部,當你
“行走速度加快,你的剎車距離比你可以用你的車燈看到更遠,這情況便是過速於你的車燈。這是一個危險的事情,因為你沒有給自己足夠的空間來進行安全的停車。反光路標可以誤導你,讓你相信你可以比現實看到更遠。“


My factory original Bi-xenon sucks big time.
They are poorly designed and only illuminate about 10m in front of you.
I can only see pedestrian walking on zebra crossing until very late I almost crashed a few times at night.
我的原廠雙氙氣很差,它們的設計不佳,只能照亮你面前約10米。我要到很遲才看到在斑馬線上行走的人,我幾乎在晚上撞毀幾次。


Needless to say, I was looking for a way to improve the visibility at night and ease the strain on eyes.
I have already tried to replace the luminaire, and things improved by 1000%.
The next step will be increasing the brightness while maintain road legal, which are equally important.  These Osram Night Breaker Unlimited bulbs seem to fit my need.
不用說,我一直在尋找一種方法來提高夜間能見度,緩解眼睛疲勞。
我已經嘗試更換燈具,事情改善了1000%。
下一步將增加亮度的同時保持公路的法律,這是同樣重要的。這些歐司朗黑夜斷路器無限燈泡似乎符合我的需要。

My car has done 7800km now so the original bulbs are pretty new.
我的車只有7800公里,原本的燈泡是非常新的。


A picture is worth a thousand words.  We shall see some photos first and rejoin for the pros, cons and verdict.
一張圖片勝過千言萬語。我們首先看到一些照片,之後回來看優點,缺點和判決。



Before installation.  28mm, F8.0, 0.8", ISO100.  Near wall distance ~6m.  Far fence distance ~12m.  New luminaire with new car stock D1S.
安裝前。近牆的距離大約 6m,遠的圍欄距離大約 12m。新燈具新車D1S。


After installation.  28mm, F8.0, 0.8", ISO100.  Near wall distance ~6m.  Far fence distance ~12m.  New luminaire with Osram NBU D1S.
The wall is slightly better.
Even though the white car is gone and no longer help to reflect some light back to the brown fence, the road surface and brown fence are obviously brighter.
安裝後。近牆的距離大約 6m,遠的圍欄距離大約 12m。新燈具NBU D1S。
牆上是稍微好一點
儘管白色車走了,不再有利於反射一些光回棕色圍欄,但路面和棕色圍欄都明顯更亮。



I noticed that the color of my headlights appear to be whiter and warmer than stock after initial break in.
The following photos compare it well.  From top left to bottom right: LED DRL, HID, Halogen, LED amber indicators.
HID does not necessary mean brighter or further reach, just more glare guaranteed.
我注意到我的頭燈的顏色比原廠更白更暖。
下面的照片可進行比較。從左上角到右下角:LED晝行燈,HID,鹵素燈,LED黃色指示燈。
HID並不一定意味著更亮或更遠,只是保證更刺眼。


They look some how similar up close eh?  If we drive it out of the carpark, things are totally different.
Here I have a sample photo of what my lights look outside projecting on a black car.  That is about 100m away from my car?
The legs shadow allows you to see the difference between background and headlights illuminance.
他們看起來有點相似吧?但是,如果我們開車出了停車場,東西是完全不同的。
在這裡我有一張我車燈投射在黑色車的樣品照片。這大約是100米從我的車?
腿的影子讓你可以看到背景和大燈照度之間的差異。



The following image is provided by Dominik Schuierer on his Audi TT 8J.
He was comparing an approx. 2000 hours factory stock bulb to a brand sparkling new Osram NBU D1S.
See the amazing difference?
下面的圖片是由 Dominik Schuierer 提供的。
他比較的一個2000小時原廠燈泡及歐司朗新 NBU D1S。
看到驚人的差異?




Pros:
+1 More light on road for higher brightness
+2 Longer light cone for further reach
+3 Whiter light for better visual
+4 Same claimed service life as standard
+5 Not crazy expensive when compared with other top brand products


Cons:
- none


Conclusion:
I can clearly see my headlight projection reach vertical walls and road signs several hundred meters away.  Everything is lit up bright and crystal clear.  The headlights remain focused so will not cause glare to others.  
我可以清楚地看到我的大燈投射到幾百米外的垂直牆壁和路牌。一切都被照亮了明亮和清澈。大燈可繼續聚焦而不會造成眩光給他人。

Regarding "whiter light", I have noticed that the Osram NBU D1S is indeed whiter than the shtty bluish stock light bulbs.  NBU looks more like daylight and are very comfortable to look at.  Thanks to more red in the spectrum, I think the CRI has improved and things become more colourful.
關於"較白",我注意到歐司朗D1S NBU比原廠的垃圾藍燈泡較白。NBU看起來更像是白天,而且非常舒服。由於在頻譜更紅了,我覺得CRI有所改善,事情變得更加豐富多彩。

Please understand white is different from blue.  One screen here is more accurately calibrated to display white, while another screen is not.
請理解白色和藍色是不同的。以下其中一個屏幕更準確地校正白色,而另一個屏幕則不是。

Also, headlights with higher colour temperature than 4300K are for idiots only.  Oh yes, most factory original LED headlights from makers like BMW, VW-Audi, Toyota or Honda are in the range of 5000-6000K, or even higher.  They make a lot of glare to other road users, but dont do much at illuminating the road:
"While the Audi's LED lights glowed with a bright intensity similar to that of HID lamps, their overall performance was unimpressive in our testing. We found a sharp cutoff at the top of their beam, and a shorter reach on both high and low beams than a good set of conventional halogen or HID bulbs."
Source: ConsumerReports
而且,較高色溫的大燈只有白痴才用。哦對了,寶馬、大眾奧迪、豐田或本田等生產商的原廠LED頭燈都在5000-6000K範圍內,或更高。他們做了很多眩光給其他道路使用者,但在照亮道路做得不多:
“雖然奧迪的LED燈閃著類似HID燈的強度,他們的整體表現在我們測試中給人印象不佳。我們發現他們頂部有尖銳的分界,並在高和低燈時比一套好的傳統鹵素燈或HID燈泡還短的照明範圍“。

Having driven the 3rd gen OOOO TT with LED headlights myself.  I strongly agree with the findings of Consumer Reports these are the most miserable headlights in 21st Century and you pay big money for buying junk.
自己開過第三代TT OOOO用LED頭燈。我十分同意消費者報告所言,這些是21世紀最慘的大燈而你付出重金購買垃圾。

To conclude, the increased light quantity compared to standard xenon lamps ensures visibly better illumination of the road surface.  This means greater visibility and a significantly longer response time.  Perfect bulbs for fatigue-free and comfortable drives.
總括而言,相比標準氙氣燈的光量增加,能確保道路表面明顯更好的照明。這意味著更大的能見度和顯著較長的反應時間。理想的燈泡給予無疲勞和舒適的駕駛。

I will not hesitate to buy Osram NBU again, and I will definitely recommend NBU to friends.
我會毫不猶豫地再次購買歐司朗NBU,我一定會推薦NBU朋友。

    NBU D1S is available in 4300K.
The CBI bulb you linked is another product.

Btw, my old car has Philips Xtreme Vision +100% in H1.
They are very bright too and shine further than most factory stock HID.

TOP

I have the NBU too, but still brand new in box don't have time to install.

I am running Osram CBI in my car now.  Great light in good weather but the color temperature is too high, visibility is not so great in rain.
