Which would be brighter between these 2 2300 lumens flashlights, one with 4500K - 5000K or 5500K - 6500K?

I’ve bought 2X Olight H2R Nova 2300 lumens flashlights but not sure if the colour temperature between 5500K - 6500K (cool white) would be brighter than the other head torch with 4500K - 5000K (natural light) as its colour temperature. Both run on their own 18650 battery which are replacements to the factory 18650 batteries that did not support 15A

    The lumens are the same; the brightness is the same; any difference would be in the lenses.

    Lumens is a measure of light output so if they're all 2300 lumens, output is equal.

    However, the 4500 K will appear brightest to human eye. The higher Kelvin lights will appear more bluish and not as bright.
