5×7″ LED Headlight Options and Comparisons

If you are in the market on getting some new 5×7′ or 7×6′ headlights for your vehicle and don’t know where to look, look no further. We found a video that goes in-depth and demonstrates all of the best 5×7″ (AKA 7×6″) LED headlight options available to replace your H6054 and H6052 headlights. The video goes over each light individually, including physical features, specs, and light output against the wall to compare.

First we have the United Pacific 31297 5×7″ LED Headlight.

JW Speaker 5×7 LED Headlights, Model #8900

J.W. Speaker 5x7 LED Headlights

These LED headlights are the best of the best in the automotive lighting world, but they are not perfect, albeit close!

Recently we reviewed and tested a set of the J.W. Speaker #8900 7×6 LED headlights and I must admit that they are totally great! There are a couple small things about them that make them slightly less than perfect, but the pros majorly outweigh the cons! These headlights are great because they are beautiful, reliable and super bright. The problems that I had with these 200mm rectangular LED headlights is pretty minimal, but to some people it may be the difference between purchasing them or not. Granted they are the best on the market, but here’s a short list of the problems these headlights have:

1. Price: These things sell for a little less than $600 each! If you must have the best, then it’s no argument, but for most of us mere mortals this price tag may break the bank.

2. Branding: The word “SPEAKER” is embossed on the inner face of the light in big bold letters, symbolizing that it is a product of the J.W. Speaker Corporation, but it confuses most people. I hear the question all the time, “This is a speaker? I thought it was a headlight…” with a funny and confused look on their face. JW Speaker needs to redesign the housing to incorporate some type of “JWS” logo inside, instead of simply the word speaker.

3. City Light: These headlights have a small single-LED city light built in for use as an indicator or just a unique looking style when you are cruising. The idea is cool, but when you turn on your city light it also lights up one half of the entire housing, dimly, so it really just looks like your headlight is on and broken.

Phase 7 LED Headlights by Truck-Lite

LED Headlights 27270C

The new 27270C LED Headlights from Truck-Lite!

They are finally here and ready to go into any vehicle with a 7″ round or 7×6″ Rectangular headlight! The Phase 7 LED headlight housings from Truck-Lite are dual beam (high/low), very bright (1,350 Lumens), and very efficient! They only draw 1.5 amps to operate and are about 1.5 times brighter than stock lights!

I gotta admit though, I personally liked the look of the old headlights better. The new ones look a little too “stock-ish” because they use a plain looking, albeit complicated design, reflector housing that two small LEDs shoot into to create the main light output. So even though the older style looked cooler, these new reflector LED lamps use less electricity and have a better light output. I did a review on a set of the older 7″ Round LED headlights and my only complaint was the beam pattern and output level. It seems that Truck-Lite has remedied both of these issues now though, here is a picture of the actual light output of the new Truck-Lite 7″ Round LED Headlight compared with a traditional halogen headlight:

Comparison shot of the new 7″ Round LED Headlights VS stock halogen headlights. The difference is drastic – LED FTW!

The release of this new style of LED headlight is also the first time that any manufacturer other than JW Speaker has offered a 7×6 (AKA 200mm or 5×7″) LED Headlight. JW Speaker has had the market cornered in 5×7 LED headlights with their model #8900 dual beam product. The JW Speaker products are higher quality with better light output compared to the Truck-Lite product, but the pricing of the new Truck-Lite headlights cannot be beat. Truck-Lite LED Headlights come in at about half the cost of their JW Speaker, American made, counterparts.

For automotive enthusiasts who need these types of headlights for the cars and trucks that they need, it’s a win/win situation as more manufacturers experiment, and succeed, with LED forward-lighting technology. I’d like to get my hands on a set of these some time to do a formal review on, but I think anyone who chooses these new housings for their project will be very happy. They feature polycarbonate lenses, low power consumption, better light output than before and a cool “blacked-out” look.
