I wanted to retain the traditional look and not go to a modern LED replacement housing, plus the JW Speakers are quite a bit more than I'd want to spend and the lower end stuff can be good or totally sketchy.
The Hellas were a big step up and I decided to try a little bit more. I bought a set of the 2020 version of the Hikari XHP 50.2 LED H4 bulbs. The cutoff remains sharp in the Hella housing. I've checked them for glare and they seem very well controlled. On high beam, they send a tight beam a very long way. These are well made to replicate the light pattern of an H4 halogen bulb and did not create any problem patterns.
If you've got an ecode H4 light already and are thinking of upgrading, I think you'll be quite happy with these particular bulbs. They're not the brightest LED H4 you could possibly buy, but they're well made, cutoff properly and provide a good clean pattern.
