Profile Performance: The automotive aftermarket's best name in LED Lighting and when it comes to Switchback LED Halos; easily the one that gets our nod of approval. Fact is that while the rest of the industry is busy sticking their name on a generic or standing still with the same-old same-old; Profile is working hand-in-hand with the industry's experts to keep pumping out the products with the performance that we all expect. Their Profile Pivot Switchback Halos are perfection so satisfying that we're left without anything else to ask for.
Switchback: The Profile Pivot Switchback Halos are designed to run full-time in their bright white setting, and [when signaled to do so by your turn signal circuit] flash amber. When the signal stops, these halo LED lights will automatically return to white, just like any modern luxury car would. They can also be wired for use as a bright Amber-only or White-only halo if that's what you want. Just wire up the appropriate input(s) and you're ready to roll!
Intensity and Uniformity: Profile's unique blend of phosphorous silicone coats the front face of the Pivot Switchback Halos and is responsible for their neutral "white when off" look and their amazing intensity which is unlike anything else on the market. The proprietary coating process ensures perfect uniformity without any hot/dark spots, bumps, runs, or other imperfections found on coated rings found elsewhere.
Super Amber: These halo LED lights' smart drivers are programmed to temporarily bump the power to the amber LED's when they first illuminate. So what? You get the best of both worlds. A switchback halo with an insanely bright amber turn signal, and also one that can work reliably as a full-time amber halo! (because the over-driven amber output is so brief, chip reliability is unaffected)
Simplicity: Wiring the Profile Pivot Switchback Halos is super easy. Their advanced LED drivers control all of the functions and only require a 3-wire input. The white wire receives a constant 12V+. The black wire is grounded, and the orange wire is tapped into the turn signal circuit.
EZ-Mount:There are three micro-mounts integrated into their backing, making the Pivot the easiest and cleanest switchback halos on the market to install. (Patent Pending) Now you can forget about failing glue or wires wrapped around the face of your angel eyes. Don't be "that guy" with dripping glue or picture hanging wire visible inside your headlights.
Reliability: The innovative Hybrid-LED technology delivers a virtually infinite lifespan of 50,000 hours. That's almost six straight years! Because they're based on much more stable and mature SMD-LEDs; they are considerably more reliable between hot/cold cycles compared to "new" COB based halos. The Pivot drivers are refined to work reliably on all modern cars/trucks, and are completely potted inside to avoid moisture-related problems.

Car guys world-wide know that TRS carries the internet's best selection of high performance automotive and powersport lighting products at the best prices, and we've got the best, most knowledgeable team of real enthusiasts to help back it up.

A little too much blue but bright
These halos are definitely more blue that white. Wish they were closer to 5500k. Also the amber DRL is pretty dim in direct sunlight. The whitish blue is bright though. High quality.
Also I'm using mine as external halos and after applying a couple coats of clear coat they have held up great against heavy rain. It does void the warranty if they're used like this but they seem pretty waterproof.
Very nice quality halo! It's visible in the sun which I was worried about. Luckily it matched my LED strips. Can't wait for the Led strips to come out! Thank you
The first thing I noticed when I open the box was the quality of the Halos everything from the driver to the braided sheathing over the wires just felt solid and not to mention the crisp White running light and the true Amber turn signal are bright as hell overall I'm satisfied and so is the customer
These look uniform throughout. The color is pure white as stated and the switchback feature looks OEM.
I have a '99 Miata and these add a whole new level of safety over the factory parking lights and bulb blinkers - plus they look incredible.
My only issue is the coating on one of the halos I received was cracked and could easily be pulled off but I don't see this happening while inside the headlight housing.
Color when off
Its great holas but i dont like its color when off its frosted white i prefer to be silver like shrouds a to be unvisible like the BMW holas its not visible ..thanks
Great design and output, but definitely not white.
The color is more blue than the 2 previous generations. The previous generations were more of a white than blue. My previous generation halos matched the 1156 Morimoto XB LED bulbs I have in my headlights. These do not and I'm rather disappointed. They're brighter, which is great, but they are a bit more blue, which sucks. They are advertised as 6000K but look kind of higher to me, compared to the 1156 LEDs (5000K, pure white with tinge of blue).
Hopefully TRS will correct this in the future.
On a positive note, the amber color is great and the switchback module is pure awesome.
Great Halo for the Money!
I just installed these switchback Halos on my 8th gen Civic Si Sedan. And boy do they shine! I used Lockitt! Positaps to tap into my car's wiring, they are just as good as soldering. They only thing I don't like about these is the how they cheaped out on the wiring for the drivers! The wires are literally 20/22 awg, I measured them. It would have been nice to have them be a bit larger gauge like 18 awg. It would make intergrating these better. I had to solder a small piece of 18 awg wire to the ground on the driver to make my installation with the Positaps work. (Because I only had four 18-20 awg Positaps, and you need 6 to do both sides.) And I had to use a larger 14 - 10 awg range Positap for the grounds on each side.
I don't know what to say about longevity since I just installed them. All work was performed by myself! I probably own the cleanest Redline Orange Pearl FA5 Si sedan in Los Angeles right now. And it's only going to get better from here...!
Great white light and easy to use power system
I love these except that the soft phosphor coating comes off if you aren't careful handling them. I cant think of any way to repair it besides use a diffuser.
They work very well and the overall build quality is very nice. Easy to wire as well. I have always loved the halo look, it totally changes the appearance of the car.
First and foremost, these are a fantastic product and extremely well built. And the packaging is super nice. The Profile branding is so badass. However, I have two MINOR concerns and things I want to point out:
1.) These DO NOT come with the black/green wire sheathing that you see in the pictures. This is a bit mis-leading but not a terribly big deal. I would have liked them to either be shipped with the black/green sheathing or just black sheathing. Why? that brings me to point #2..
2.) The wires on these are EXTREMELY skinny. Now I know that a bigger gauge wire wouldn't be totally necessary, but it sure would have made me feel a bit better while handling them.
Of course these two things are minor and can be easily fixed with your own addition of wire sheathing (which I would recommend anyways)
I also read a few negative reviews that I wanted to address:
First, someone mentioned something about a "fade" effect when switching back and forth from white to amber. While there IS a fade effect when turning on/off and when switching, it only takes around 1 second AT MOST to change. And, I noticed that when going from white to amber it is almost instant, but when going from amber to white it takes about 1 second at most. So, that means there is little to no lag time from when you activate your turn signal to when they switch to amber. But, there is about a 1 second delay from when deactivate your turn signal for them to switch back to a full-intense white. Second, someone mentioned that the coating on their halos was peeling and flaking off. I personally did not have an issue with this but I can see how this could happen if you arenâ€™t careful. It has an odd, tacky and rubber-like coating that I could see being very delicate. I actually got a 50-50 alcohol and water solution to wipe them clean before finally sealing them inside the headlight. Iâ€™m not sure if you are or are not supposed to do this but it seemed to remove a smudge or two that got on the coating while installing. My advice would be to keep them in the box until its time to install, then gently wipe clean right before sealing them up. And lastly, I saw a comment about the white mode having a blue-is tint. This couldnâ€™t be further from the truth. While technically they probably lean closer to blue than yellow, these are PURE WHITE. With the help of the coating on the rings, they produce a true white that youâ€™d be hard to find anywhere else.
