I don't actually know.

Yes they are warm glow. Halogens and incandescents when dimmed go more red a bit like the sunset. They drop from 2700kelvin to about 2200. Normal LED’s do not change colour temperature when dimmed. (Something which I never thought about) Which is why people were so reluctant to give up halogens. I haven’t seen incandescents anywhere recently, but now the EU has banned halogens for most lights these need to be sold. Also old dimmer switches won’t work you need the new leading edge ones (correct me if wrong).

I have two pairs of these for lamps on a dimner and I can confirm they feel and behave like incandescents. They dim excellent and go redder as dimmed. Also when they say 60w equivalents they mean it. 60watt is 806 lumen not 700 lumen.
