3. Choosing the correct Head-Light

What is the best headlight for me?

Choosing the best headlight for your self depends completely on your own needs, your working methods, and finally, also on your budget.

Generally speaking, the smaller and brighter the light unit, the better. These days, (mobile) LED is by far the best option.

Further, if you are a medical professional, surgeon, or dentist, you want to choose a light which will stay cool and not burn your fingers if you touch it.
ErgonoptiX D-Light LED headlights, use LED cooling technology to ensure lower temperatures are maintained.

It can not be used without loupes (unless you order a “direct-mount” connection part and replace the connection)
