Helmet mounted headlamp?

I'm looking to add a helmet-mounted lamp. I already have a bar mounted light, and this would supplement that as needed. USB chargeable would be nice, but not required.

I have a pair of cheap Fyxation bullhorns. I'm in the process of rebuilding the Kilo this spring, and I'd like to upgrade my bars as well. What bars are the most comfortable, in your opinion?
