Recessed lighting - No baffle, shallow baffle or deep baffle?

I have 8 feet ceiling in my bedrooms and want to install recessed lighting. Should I choose no baffle, shallow baffle or deep baffle? The baffle looks good but not sure if it will make the light uneven. Thanks

With a high ceiling, I don't think it really matters much.
Technically, the larger baffles will provide more directed light. The higher baffles are around a 90-degree beam angle. The flat/no-baffle lights provide almost 180-degree beam. But in a bedroom, I don't think you're going to see much of a difference.

In my opinion, the flat ones are more utility-looking, or maybe more modern looking. The higher baffles I personally think looks nicer... but of course it's personal opinion.

I think color temperature is the most important piece to look at. I hate higher color temp lights for living space. I would do a 2700K or 3200K option.
