Sofirn HS05. 2700k and 4000k!

Sofirn HS05. 2700k and 4000k!

Sofirn [has the 4000K option on AliExpress](https://i.imgur.com/nlmAtQz.png) right now. But the 2700K shows as out of stock. There is currently a coupon for 30% OFF this light, supplied by [Lumeniac on BLF](https://budgetlightforum.com/node/79070): **5DBE9MB1O9HK** That makes this an incredible buy, **$17 for the light itself or $20 with a 14500 cell.** I think 2700 and 4000K being high-CRI make this headlamp a very compelling option for the price, even without the discount code. The Manker still beats it out for the ultra-low sublumen moonlight modes. Having owned both the E03H side-by-side, I still prefer Sofirn's UI, and the turbo output is impressive.

Thats a bummer. Wouldve loved to grab the 2700k with the discount code but ill probably still get it as it is(to me) worth the $20+. Definitely would like to try the 2700k variety as I have the 4000k emitters in my sp36 and theyre great. I love my manker e02ii and e03h for their ultra low moonlights but the weird mode grouping puts me off. Imo the highest mode in the moonlight group has no place there and should be in the high group. Remove the turbo from 2nd group and just make it double click. Sofirn could just add a 0.1 lumen mode and id be happy with that. If i didnt have to cycle through turbo to get from low to medium on my zebras it would be pretty much close to perfect.

My thoughts exactly. If the Sofirn had a proper sublumen (or even a real 1 lumen mode - which I don't believe it has, based on my eyeballs) it beats out the Manker slightly on almost all fronts: UI, headband, power output. The build, weight, size is about equal. So the only thing the Sofirn lacks is a proper moonlight. With the discount code it's a no-brainer for me. Don't get me wrong, sub-lumen is great. The E02H was my very first 'proper' light and it spoils you for that feature. But $17 - that's just an incredible price. If the 2700K comes back in stock I'll definitely snag one.


han-t

Well said. I agree on all fronts. I'll probably snag one soon along with the hd20 and a wk01. Will post beamshots of the 2700k when i get it. Good luck!

>If i didnt have to cycle through turbo to get from low to medium on my zebras Sounds like you might have it set to 1-click for medium and hold for low? If so, to go from L to M press once, then again immediately again when it turns off to go to M as quickly as possible. If using stock mode group, just hold until it goes to M.


han-t

Yeah I have set it up to 1c for M. And 2c for Turbo. So the only way is to click to off, wait, then click again once from off am i getting you right? Cause that's what ive been doing. Would rather prefer a situation where i didnt have to off it and im able to just increase brightness like cycling modes. Maybe i should sacrifice my second sublumen mode for a brighter low so i could just 2c without losing light.

>So the only way is to click to off, wait, then click again once from off am i getting you right? Pretty much, but you can click again the *instant* the light turns off and it will go to medium. Once you get a feel for the timing it's fairly quick.


Wish4Rain

Thank you for posting that. I got the 4000k for $19.50 after taxes and code.


kanakana2

No worries friend. Can't let a good deal go to waste!


han-t

Good choice! Cant go wrong with the 4000k. Only reason im getting the 2700k is because I already have the e03h in that temp.

>5DBE9MB1O9HK Code no longer works.


kanakana2

Yes, unfortunately it has expired. You may try asking u/Sofirn if there's any new code for this


Sofirn

20H9LDPY for Hs05


kanakana2

Thanks! u/buckGR ☝️


kanakana2

Which platform is this for? Amazon?


Sofirn

yes, amazon US


han-t

Tempted to pull the trigger. What do you guys think of a 2700k headlamp?


kwantomleep

I've been looking for one!


han-t

Get!


hikeandbike33

Dang it, I ordered on aliexpress and didn’t see any options for temp. I’m assuming mine is 5000k


han-t

Im not sure about the aliexpress versions but before they introduced the newer tints they only came in 6000k? It was advertised as that on Lazada at least. The reason i was holding back for so long. I've never heard of a 5000k version. Maybe you should contact them to confirm this and cancel if you dont want a 6000k. I'd hate to have a tint like that especially on a headlamp since it will be primarily used for close up work. I can imagine it just lying in my drawer :/ but thats just me...


The_Noobie_

Where did you see this at??


han-t

It's on Lazada. An SEA platform. I couldnt find it anywhere else but here :/


nursoul

Sofirn has stores in both Lazada and AliExpress. But stocks differs. E.g. you can get purple wurkkos FC11 in Sofirn's AliExpress but not in Sofirn's Lazada..not yet as of now..


SignificantMeat

Dang, looks like I missed the boat on that coupon code. Doesn't seem to be working for me.
