Hueblog: In direct comparison: Hue Go, Hue Bloom and Hue Iris

In direct comparison: Hue Go, Hue Bloom and Hue Iris

Which mood light is your favourite?

After the Hue Go was updated last year and the second generation provides numerous improvements, this spring it was the turn of the Hue Bloom. And the third mood light in the bunch will soon be available in a new generation, even in a limited edition. We are of course talking about the Hue Iris, which was presented just last week.

But how do the three mood lights actually differ from one another? I have simply put all three next to each other and would like to use this article to show you in detail the characteristics of the three Hue lamps. You are also welcome to post in the comments which model is your personal favourite.

Philips Hue Iris: The special design

When it comes to design, the Hue Iris is easy to keep up with, with its transparent body the mood lighting looks impressively great. Above all, it is significantly larger than Hue Go and Hue Bloom.

  • up to 570 lumens brightness
  • 860 grams in weight
  • available in black and white
  • 99,99 Euro

The special feature: As the first product from Philips Hue to date, the Hue Iris will also be available as a Limited Edition in the colours copper, gold, silver and rose. This special design is 20 Euros more expensive, at least on the product pictures also really chic.

Philips Hue Go: The mobile table lamp

Although significantly younger than Iris and Bloom, the Hue Go has become a fan favourite in recent years and offers even more features in the new generation that was launched last year.

  • up to 520 lumens brightness
  • 625 grams in weight
  • 79,95 Euro

The special feature: The Philips Hue Go can be used not only on the power cable, but also as a mobile unit. If you are out of range of the bridge, you can control it via Bluetooth. As the only lamp in the Hue portfolio, the Hue Go can also be controlled by a button directly on the device.

Philips Hue Bloom: The Tiny

You can see it very well on the pictures: The Hue Bloom is much smaller than the Hue Go and the Hue Iris, but it doesn't have to hide. At the latest since the update in spring the Hue Bloom, which was a bit weak before, is convincing.

  • up to 500 lumen brightness
  • 452 grams in weight
  • available in black and white
  • 79,99 Euro

The special feature: Perhaps the special feature of this table lamp is that it has no special features at all? Maybe it is also the compact size? In any case, it is worth mentioning that metal has been used as the material for the housing and not just plastic.

This is the best mood lighting from Philips Hue

Since the technology is quite similar, it is incredibly difficult for me to choose a winner on this basis. You should rather think about which of the three mood lights you like best.

Special attention should also be paid to the price. While the Limited Edition of the new Hue Iris is unlikely to be offered for less than the targeted 119.95 Euros in the next few weeks, the Hue Go is already available in stores for under 60 Euros.

  1. Great comparison! The Iris is really nice looking. I have two older Go lights and I appreciate how mobile they are. The most irritating design flaw I have is you cannot tilt them on the built in angled stand with it plugged in. Are the newer ones designed so they can?
