Lightbulb led headlight throw/beam/projection

tons of options for led headlights whether oem hd daymaker or alternatives/amazon/ebay/aliexpress special.

what i've noticed is the throw or beam patter or projection of the light, where most of them are not solid.

i'll take 2 of the early brands that went so popular from amazon - wisamic and sunpie. they're pretty much identical. super bright, wide throw, solid perimeter, but the center of the beam has hollow or dark lines.

has it bothered anyone else? or found a better alternative from the alternatives!? something with a more solid beam/projection?!

a pic of what i'm talking about.




here's the link to the pic:
