No Comparison: When it comes to HID bulbs, Morimoto has always brought us the best in the aftermarket, and their latest examples are no exception. Sure we think the options from Philips and Osram are great too, but when it comes to bang for the buck - nothing compares to the Morimoto XB HID lineup. Compatible with 35W and 55W: The XB's will produce more lumens, last longer, project farther, and look better doing it.
Luminosity: At the heart of the XB 9006 bulbs is their perfectly aligned 100% Philips quartz glass that houses a capsule from APL-USA. Using high quality halide salts from German-supplier Messer; the Morimoto HID headlight bulbs produce nearly the same luminosity (intensity) as the amazing Osram CBI bulbs at 5500K. No, you're not seeing things here, but yes you will be seeing everything at night. In our Comparison to the big brands; Morimoto's XB capsule ran with the best of em!
Long Life: The Austrian-sourced Plansee electrodes help keep the H11B bulbs running brighter for longer. In comparison to a Philips bulb with 200 hours of use; the Morimoto HID headlight bulbs will maintain 83% of its intensity whereas the Philips bulb will retain 86%. Yeah, the Philips maintains a little longer, but this kind of longevity is unheard of in the aftermarket. We're impressed!
Precise Alignment: Morimoto's Symmetry-Structure frame surrounds the base of the glass capsule keeping everything properly lined up, which is paramount when it comes to HID bulbs. In the past we all agreed that precision wasn't the strong suit for the XB bulbs...but the latest are indeed the greatest - and they're now consistently well-aligned, which is a good thing - because it means the output is also consistently bright and uniform throughout. [Applause]
Industry Standard: The XB replacement HID bulbs are built to industry-standard size specifications and are compatible with all ballasts with "AMP" outputs - making them a perfect match for a replacement bulb or upgrade! We've tested them here in the shop for reliability with all ballasts from Morimoto, Hylux, ACME, Denso, Hella, Bosch, and Koito and passed with ease.
Please Note: There are two base types, H11A and H11B. We can confirm fitment on most newer Japanese vehicles as needing H11B, and most Hyundai/Kia vehicles as needing "H11A" despite what the bulb itself may state. Determine fitment by using the visual guide in the pictures and watching this video!

Not all HIDs are created equal. Bought these to replace some no name brand hids I bought off amazon. These are noticeable brighter and the alignment is perfect. I was actually shocked at how much brighter these were. I will definitely be buying from these guys again.
I purchased the H11B 4500K bulbs after having a horrible Innovited set in my 2008 Camry stock projectors hoping that these would be better.
Well, they are FANTASTIC! Much better quality and a lot better brightness and beam pattern! You cannot go wrong with these!
I accidentally purchased the 4500k instead of the 5500k but I am very happy with it still. The visibility on dry and wet roads are great! Very happy with this purchase and will be buying more products from TRS!
I have been using morimoto bulbs for kver five years and never encountered any issues with thier products.
At this point ive been using Morimoto bulbs exclusively for 6 years, and have never has a defective bulb or a premature failure.
Work well with a TRS system in a 2014 4runner (stock projectors). So far, no concerns to note, work very well. Good beam cutoff, only rarely flashed. Pair really nicely with profile peak h11 led bulbs in the fogs!
Vast improvement over the standard halogen fog lights. Wide view with clear cut off. I'd say with the fog lights I have now versus the previous halogens, It's well over 110% improvement. Used these along with a canbus relay (to eliminate the bulb out warning) and ballasts work perfectly. You can't go wrong with Morimoto in any situation when it comes to vehicle lighting.
Installed in my 8th gen accord coupe and I'm really amazed
I got 5500K with XB55
And the color is white only, without any tint of blue
It looks more like the OEM halogens but 3X brighter in my opinion
I felt MAJOR Difference and it's by far one of the best mods I've done
If you want the OEM HID look with a slight blue tink I think you should go for 6500K with the XB55 ballast
Made a mistake and went with a badly made DDM Tuning HID kit for my 2015 Charger. Bulb from Morimoto was an exact fit / repaclement for my 9012 hologen bulb socket as opposed to the other brands knockoff. It's a badly make 9006 configuration and the power lead plug would not plug into the Dodge wiring connector. Pins did not line up. Should have chosen Morimoto first and saved money and time.
I bought these to replace a pair of standard H11 bulbs I got off amazon and you'd be surprised. Not all hid bulbs are the same; these have a much more even color and seem to be a good deal brighter as well. For the price, they're well worth it
I bought this bulbs as a replacement for an aftermarket HID System without any issue. I noticed that the quality of the manufacturing is quite better than other products online. Also I recommend H11B when installing on systems having a projector.
