    Nothing beats the incandescent bulb.
    You've bought the "cold white" ones by mistake.

      I bought dimmable LEDs but all they did was flicker.
      In one room, we spent months trying to figure out a really annoying flicker after fitting bright LEDs and a new LED dimmer. I changed the dimmer switch, all the bulbs, the fitting, before realising the same fitting worked fine with the same bulb and dimmer when wired up in my garage.
      Come to the conclusion there's some issue with the wiring but that means pulling up the floor. For me flickering lights are how other people feel about a ticking clock or dripping sink, so I put in some new halogens.

Not seen one of those before, although LED dimming switches are themselves quite complex... the one I have has several modes you can put it in.

            It maybe worth having a spark in to test and do an EICR bit like an MOT on your electrics.

                Nothing wrong with lead covered rubber insulated wire.

                Lasts forever.

                As long as you don't touch it.
