Starr HID Offers OEM Performance with Aftermarket Flair!

Bi-Xenon 7" Round Projector Headlights

This set of black-backed headlights are one of the absolute best on the market from Starr HID.

Recently I reviewed a set of Starr HID™ 7″ Round Bi-Xenon replacement Housings, part number HID-XP6024. The thing that I like about these lights the most is not only do they use OEM Philips brand components, including D1S xenon bulbs, but they also LOOK AWESOME! I mean, check out this Hummer H2 with the Starr HID headlights:

Starr HID headlights make this Hummer look extra-awesome.

The next best thing about these headlights has got to be the light output. Many consumers of fine lighting products already know that an HID conversion kit in a halogen/reflector style headlight doesn’t work as well as an OEM xenon system because that housing wasn’t made for HID light output. So sometimes the beam pattern output is scattered and has hot spots on the road. When a vehicle comes with original equipment high intensity discharge headlights the beam pattern is restricted and nearly perfect. The Starr HID headlights offer the best of both worlds: OEM Performance with Aftermarket Flair! Check out this comparison between the JW Speaker 7″ LED Headlights and the XP6024 7″ HID Headlight:

So in a nut shell, the Starr 7″ Round HID Headlights have a great (3 years) warranty, DOT certified, beautiful construction, great light output and they look fantastic when installed. I definitely give these headlights a thumbs up, and if you’re interested in getting your hands on a set, visit

    • Hi Stuart, thanks for the comment!
      Generally I prefer the JW Speaker products because of the new technology that they provide, but in some circumstances I prefer Starr HID. They are both absolutely great products, and each have their own pros and cons. For example, on some vehicles the Starr HID products don’t look as good because they kind of stick out a little big where the JW Speaker lights are more flush. Which products are you specifically trying to compare?

  1. I wouldn’t have found these products in the first place if it weren’t for you =)

    I’m comparing the Jw speaker Led with the Starr HID. I have a Jeep Wrangler on the way and want to be ready when it arrives. I’m already starting to think that I should go with Jw hoping that the bulb lasts longer. Albeit I am tempted with the Starr Hid because it somehow resembles the output of our Land Rover LR3 Stock HID which I love so much.

    Its pretty common here in my country to have tinted cars and mine in particular is gonna have super black tint on the windshield, we have an Audi TT and the projector Headlights are so weak its hard to see also because of the tint. I’m not looking for 5000 lumens but it would sure be nice to drive with a bright light without blinding the other side.

    • First of all Stuart, I’m glad I could help you find them! Part of my “mission” is to show people some of the great new lighting products that they may have never known about before. Some of this stuff exists, and it’s awesome, but nobody’s heard of it.

      For the Jeep Wrangler, really either option is going to be awesome. They both look great on that truck and they both have great light output. The only thing that the JW Speaker lights don’t do better than Starr HID is the high beam. The Starr HID high beam is INCREDIBLE! Whereas the JW Speaker high beam is kind of unimpressive and not very good. Both of them have fantastic low beam light output, and the LED headlight from JW Speaker will last longer (15 years instead of 8). However, I think the Starr HID headlight will actually be a little bit brighter than the LED from JW Speaker. Let me know if you have any other questions or concerns!

      • Thanks Man! This site is really useful. Kinda sort of organizes the lighting industry. I guess Starr is a bit attractive, but we don’t have a lot of freeways here so Jw might still be practical. Also considering Rigid Industries in case I do need High beams, but that’s for another time. gonna spend more time sifting through your material. =)

      • Thanks for the kind words once again! Rigid makes some good stuff, but you should consider looking into VisionX. They’ve got light bars that are the same quality as Rigid, but in a 5 watt or 10 watt configuration. Rigid’s LEDs are only 3 watt, so for 30% more money of a Vision X 5 watt LED bar you get nearly double the light output. I plan on doing a review of VisionX VS Rigid very soon.

What do you think?
