I recommend using Cycles for HDRI lighting with high importance sampling. Please view the attached youtube video for details on using these HDRIs in Blender Cycles. I have tested and can confirm that these HDRIs work with Cycles and Octane, and while I haven’t tested with other renderers, you should be fine with any that support HDRI.
