Recommended Headlight Bulbs for the 2012 Honda Accord

Torch Beam T2 9005/9006 LED Headlight Bulbs

High And Low Beams

The Torch Beam LED headlight kit packs a noticeable boost in brightness, a more aesthetically pleasing look, and extended longevity over stock headlight options.

Firstly, we loved the intense output of these LEDs. They really give stock bulbs a run for their money with a 400% improvement in brightness. The higher output is bolstered by a farther throw and wider projection which allows for more expansive road coverage.

Another area where you will see a lot of improvement is in the color profile of these LEDs. 6500k results in a pure white beam of light that is not marred by dark spots or blurriness. Visibility is improved for nighttime driving and clarity is also boosted.

Made using the latest CSP chips, these LEDs, despite bing more powerful than stock, are also less power hungry, allowing them to last well over 50,000 hours, even when used regularly. Built in CANbus drivers make sure the kit functions without any errors.

Pros
  • 400% brighter
  • Enhanced visibility
  • 6500k color temperature
  • CSP chips
  • Better power management
  • 50,000 hours of use
Cons
  • Slight flickering on startup that subsides in a few seconds

HIKARI 9006/HB4 LED Headlight Bulbs

Low Beam

Hikari’s 9006 compatible LED kit is brilliantly bright and delivers a superior white color profile, along with a premium build and improved lifespan.

Rated at 14,000 lumens of brightness, the Hikari’s are one of the brightest LED kits for the 2012 Honda Accord. We were treated to better clarity for nighttime driving in addition to effortless visibility.

The longer throw is aided by a wider field of view and better beam calibration that does away with fuzziness in your line of vision. The color profile is cool and white at around 6000k, great for helping the driver easily notice any obstacles in their path and react accordingly.

Longevity also sees a dramatic improvement thanks to the highest quality CSP chips being used. You can expect to get about 50,000 hours of use, even if you drive at night more than average.

Pros
  • 14,000 lumens of brightness
  • Wider road coverage
  • 6000k color temperature
  • Better clarity
  • Easier to spot hazards in the road
  • Premium build
  • 50,000 hours of use
Cons
  • A bit more expensive than other options
