CREE makes the LEDs (raw component), many others as well like Osram, Nichia etc

Hard to say which one to go by, to me the lumen/candle output alone is not the most important since some headlamps has very poor fiber-optic (plastic ring inside) thus limiting the brightness regardless how many LEDs the bub has. I also look at cooler operating(don;t want to melt $1000 headlamp), fault code free, plu-n-play with capacitor so no flicker and potential radio reception interference etc.
