Sofirn SP40 with LH351D version

Hey guys! 

In the past year, some sofirn fans asked if SP40 with LH351D possible. 

But we were too busy to fulfill, now SP40 with LH351D led is available. 

You can choose tint 5000k or 4000k. Most importantly, it has a high 90 CRI. 

Check this link if you are interested.

2700K?

You can't compare the big flashlight in the sky to the little flashlight in your hand.

Great timing! I was in the market for a high-cri headlamp, and at this price (less than half of a new Skilhunt H04!) I’m happy to give it a shot. I have a feeling I’ll end up with an H04 or HL3A eventually, but I’m also curious to try this Sofirn. Thanks!

how crazy is this

The high CRI and warm tint is a wonderful option for a very nice light. Great job! Frankly I like the warm SST-20 in my SP40. As a very nice headlamp with any of the LED’s it comes with, it would be truly excellent if it had a true moonlight mode. Andruil perhaps? How much more would it cost to put a better driver in it? Could there be an SP40 Pro?

If you’re savy with electronics and and a soldering iron, a driver swap isn’t too hard but you’d lose usb charging. With some more creativity you could add in usb-c charging.

Half the price as the H04 but zero regulation and head mount is not great. Not a fan of rubber rings

It seems everybody is using the rubber rings now? Looks like H04 used to use a plastic clip type device to hold the light for the headband

The H04 without charging comes with the silicone mount while the RC version has the clip.

Not in the market for SP40, but Sofirn/Wurkkos has an amazing batch of 5000K LH351D 90CRI. Both my WK30 and DL30 have gorgeous tint.

Any chance we could get the SP40 with LH351D at 3500K?

Hi, we don’t have the plan to produce the SP40 with LH351D 3500k. You know, the 4000k is almost looks like the 3500k.

Yeah but 4000k doesn’t look anything like 2700k. I got the sp40 only because the 3000k was offered. I’d buy more to gift if the 2700k was offered. There are so many advantages to having a warm headlight.

You can't compare the big flashlight in the sky to the little flashlight in your hand.

The 2700k LH351D option is there.
But no moon mode (lowest is 5lm)… and no andùril Sad

I know. After trying a few different lights with LH351D, I just like the 3500K best. It seems like the best all-rounder.

I’m in the same boat as another poster that recently picked up the previous versions. I like the 3000K version best of those but yeah, I’ll probably pick up the new 2700K version.

‘Turns out I bought it with the 2700k lh351d. I like the wide spill from the reflector, I like the strap, the magnet is strong enough, the UI is… not ideal. Their is no moonlight mode, and I feel like turbo could have been higher. I also suspect that I would like lh351d 3000k better than the 2700k that I find too red, compared to an sst20-2700k that I have and that looks white next to it (with a tiny hint of yellow/green, that is totally unnoticable otherwise, especially since it has even better cri and much better r9).
