I just use the better sealed-beams since they are cheap.  Hela makes the best, but those aren't possibly street-legal(round off-road only type lights).  But yes, wiring directly is a big difference.  The lights don't last half as long - they last exactly the normal life span.  The "normal" headlights last longer because you are usually running them at 80-90% of their rated power, and it makes an enormous difference.  They last 2-3x longer but also put out 2/3 the light.
