Halo projector headlights are vastly different from traditional car headlights, which work using a reflector system. Reflector headlights have a set of bulbs inside the light itself, and are lined with a special reflective material. The light from the bulb bounces off this reflective material and out onto the road. Halogen projector lights have special projecting bulbs (hence the name) that actually shoot the light directly out onto the road. The main advantage of this design is that these lights can be carefully adjusted to provide maximum illumination just where you need it.
