***Update 8/20/2016**** This headlamp has proved itself to be so incredibly valuable and dependable that I am going to add a video tutorial of its functions. I hope the video helps you get a better idea of what this headlamp is capable of and gives you confidence in purchasing decision!
Both lights have a high power Main LED (dimmable on Spot, fixed on Vizz), secondary low power white LED (dimmable on both models), and red led (dimmable on both models).
The Main LED is very focused on both with brightness approximately the same. The Spot has can dim it’s main light which is great.
The Vizz has very focused beams on all of its light modes. The SPOT has a focused main LED and the secondary LED and Red LED are nicely diffused.
Both are similar in weight and feel. The Spot has a battery metter (high, med, low), while the Vizz will alert of low battery.
Overall pick: Black Diamond Spot. Dimmable and properly diffused red light and low power LED.
The included manual for the user interface is a little more complicated than it has to be, so here's an easy version of how to operate this thing:
There are two main modes: red and white. Switch between these modes at any time by holding the power button when it's switched off.
There are two white sub-modes: flood (proximity/around camp) and throw (spotlight). Switch between these two modes by tapping the right side of the housing or by double-clicking the power button.
Finally, adjust brightness in any mode by holding the power button while it's switched on.
Headlamp 1, the "Shining Buddy" LED Headlamp, was $12.97, and had 4.8 stars from 2509 reviews. Physical quality seemed fine, but from the moment I turned it on, the "Shining Buddy" had a relatively dim LED, even on the highest settings, and it had a very blue tint (a very cool LED color). It was dim enough that I found it wanting for most tasks and the color made it unpleasant to use. I didn't use it for long.
Headlamp 2, the Foxelli Headlamp at the same price ($12.97) also had good reviews - 4.7 stars from 1082 reviews. In contrast, the Foxelli was a rockstar!. It had a much brighter and had a very clean, white light. It compared favorably to the two other lamps I reviewed which were 2x and 3x the price. It has dimmable lights, flashing lights, and red color as most do. The only nitpick is that one must cycle through all settings to turn off. The last setting, before turning off, is a VERY bright flashing setting. Wow. Mezmerizing! But annoying to have to cycle through each time. This would be my choice for a go-to work light in the future. Great price, clear white light, nice quality.
Headlamp 3, the Black Diamond Spot Headlamp, was $25.99, and 4.6 stars from 352 reviews. It's an excellent performer and seems to be very high quality. It's a bight brighter than the Foxelli, and has a somwhat more uniform light. It also has a moderately bright but very wide uniform light setting. This is a really nice feature that I didn't have on an old Black Diamond light and I like it. Although I mostly use the bright spot setting, I could see it being useful in a close up place, or for finding things in the dark as it really illuminates gently but all around. It seems to have a nice closure mechanism (a bit nicer than the Foxelli) which seems durable. The Tap-For-Extra-Bright option is really cool too. There are more settings (red, flashing, etc) and the method for getting to them is a bit complicated, but it means that you can (more or less) get tot the setting you want and keep it there without a lot of cycling through unwanted settings. Great lamp, and definitely nicer than the Foxelli, but for work the Foxelli is good enough and half the price, so buy two and still have one when you can't find the other. If you're camping, or hiking, the Black Diamond Spot might be more up your alley and it is still a good bargain.
Headlamp 4 was the Black Diamond Storm Headlamp, at $31.93, with 4.5 stars from 186 reviews. This is really a premium headlamp. Fit and finish was similar to the BD Spot, but with a much better cam lock closure and superior gasket sealing for the battery compartment. This lamp is even brighter than the bright BD Storm, which was even brighter than the Foxelli. And then you could use Power Tap and it was really really bright. It also has the wide angle, gentle uniform light setting which I liked so much on the BD Spot. Add green to the red and flashing options, and you get a very complicated control system (all from one button) but with a nice guide and quick reference card to rescue you. This is really the nicest headlamp of the four, but only a bit nicer than the BD Spot at a bit of a premium. This light uses 4 batteries, which is nice because what do you always do with that other one from your charger anyway?
All in all, three of these lights were awesome. All come with batteries, but I use Eneloop rechargables in my headlamps because they go through batteries pretty quickly when you have them on bright all of the time. I'd buy the Foxelli again in a heartbeat. For my purposes, the BD Spot is also a great light, with the higher quality and wide angle setting worth the extra. It's a keeper for sure. It turns out that I didn't really need the extra features of the BD Storm. A camper or hiker might find them invaluable though!
