This light is considerably smaller than the others. It is 110x32x84mm instead of the 155x55x100mm of typical Chinese light. Unfortunately it still has simple optics, not very suitable for a road use.

XM radio streams at very low bitrates- IIRC it is only 8kbps for voice channels and 40kbps for music. Not nearly enough for good sound quality.

Thanks, excellent pictures.
The construction is similar to many other LED bulbs, although I can't visually identify the emitters. They are not the type typically found on the cheaper bulbs.
