T10/194: Morimoto XB LED 2.0B-LED-MT10
[ In Stock: pieces ]
Morimoto: Has always been our go-to-guys when it came to HID, and when they released their line of LED products, we had our doubts. Performance left a little to be desired compared to some of the more refined models on the market. BUT (and thats a big BUT) that has since changed with the much more mature, refined second generations of each model they offer. While in all-honesty Morimoto didn't exactly nail it the first time around on the LED bulbs, what we have from them today is about as modern as it gets and much more in-line with the quality and performance we've all come to expect from the brand.
So What's new with Version Two? Basically everything except the name, really. Now using their "Hybrid LED" system that was made famous by the XSB 2.0 halos and strips, the new XB T10's are A) super reliable (we've yet to see one fail), B) have an excellent 5500K white or Golden Amber color, and C) much better consistency due to the updated phosphor coating they're putting on them now. We dig it!
Featured: In the October 2015 issue of DSport Magazine alongside LED offerings from Philips and Osram. Morimoto is the benchmark in aftermarket automotive lighting!
Modern Touch:The XB LED bulbs produce plenty of light to improve illumination while adding a modern touch to your vehicle's lighting. They illuminate perfectly evenly, not spotty like the surface mounted chips found on other bulbs. Just don't stare if you care to see anything after that!
Construction: The bulb is constructed with a white fiberglass PCB sandwiched between two very unique white-faced Hybrid LED panels. The positive/ground contacts are perforated and dipped in gold copper to improve contact across both sides of the base.
Everywhere: From interior lighting to city and marker lights, the T10/194 fitment is easily one of the most common sizes used in the automotive industry. Chances are, there's a place for these bulbs on your car, especially now that they're available in both white and amber!
Can-bus: The XB LED bulbs are can-bus friendly and should not hyper flash or cause any "lamp out" errors in MOST applications. If however your vehicle requires more resistance, we recommend using the Morimoto HD Load Resistors

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.

I replaced my old LED bulbs from VLEDS with these and man are they bright. Not only are they brighter than my old bulbs they're noticeably whiter, even though both were rated at 5000k. The base is a lot more sturdy than the thin metal wire other LED bulbs have.

I replaced my old VLEDS bulbs with these and man are they impressive. Not only are they brighter, they are way whiter. Even though they were both rated at 5000k. The base are also way sturdier than the thin metal wire used by cheaper bulbs.
Awesome LED Lights!

What's up, Sean Lezner from HIDP.
<br>First and foremost, let me start off by saying these XB T10's are awesome, amazingly bright and the light spread (due the COB tech) is very even and not spotty at all.
<br>They are one of the brightest if not THE brightest 194 bulbs I've ever used and easily match or exceed many of VLEDs offerings in quality and brightness. They are also a bit bluish-white than a straight white but that's really only personal preference.
<br>Now if only TRS would make a forward-firing 194 LED! :)
Awesome LED Bulbs!!!

These Morimoto XB LED bulbs are simply THE BRIGHTEST T10/194 bulbs I've installed on my car so far. The light output is very white and the spread is even. I have them installed on my door puddle lights and my trunk they illuminate the ground and trunk completely. Thanks to The Retrofit Source. Keep up the good work and for supplying high quality products.

I've used lots of LED T10/194 bulbs in the past and these are by far the brightest I've ever used. Well constructed and fit in the socket just a little tighter than bulbs they replaced. Morimoto has yet to disappoint!
BRIGHT BUT COLOR IS NOT 5000K

I install these on my 15 Honda Accord together with Xb35 5500k but thought the color was a little off. Color of LEDs was close to 6500k (much bluish compared to 5500k xb35)
Bright, even light

I love these T10s. For some reason, Audi used T10s for nearly all of the interior lights in my S3. I replaced them with the Morimoto T10s, and bright EVEN light. I had these in my jeep and a few other cars and have loved them in every one. Many LEDs are spotty and don't light evenly or utilize the factory reflectors, but the smooth output style from these bulbs are fantastic. A++++ Thank you TRS!
