Default Best replacement bulbs for headlights?

What are the best replacement bulbs for headlights? When i went to the Sylvina ultra over stock noticed a HUGE difference is there anyway to go brighter without going to HID's?

I use Phillips Xtreme power bulbs. 80% more light (which means 80% more light. not brighter, but more light in a wider area. I even had to lower my headlights a little bit!

The brighter the bulb the less life they have.

There is a brand of bulb I sell at Advance which gives you 30% more brightness from a stock bulb. But you also get to keep the life of your bulb without it being so bright.

I have the 4000K PIAA headlights. Little bit brighter but at night my headlights look awsomeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee. It's really hard to take pictures of, but the center of my headlight is blue. It looks like my truck has eyes!
