What does "whiter" mean in this context? My gut tells me that many people see "bluer" as "whiter," and blue is not an advantage. Read some of the articles (based on actual science rather than anecdotal evidence) on Daniel Stern Lighting's website explaining that blue light causes more glare and dazzle, and focuses in front of the retina (causing less distinct vision) than more yellow light. While I have no experience with LED headlights, I'll observe that many LED lights, in general, tend more toward the blue.
