    Was at Vijayawada yesterday, So Called up Mr Basha, explained him on what I was looking and he directed me to a shop and the shop guy got no clue on any horn with coupler.
    Mr Basha suggested that he would check with Hyderabad distributor and let me know.
    Most of these so called dealers or shops don't have any knowledge on what they are selling.

    Got HELLA Black Pearl (with Coupler)
    @kunwar.g
    Can you confirm if you got the same set,as the part number is different for the one i got.
    Will fix these some time later, as I recently switched to DENSO.
    Did you find these any better, viz loud/sharp than OE sound.

    These seem to a newer version as they also have the coupler attachment in them for cars which dont have coupler. Probably thats why the part number is different. What was the cost ?

    Ofcourse these are many times better than OEM. Also I dont get the horn vibration inside cabin like in the OEM

    Got them for 800/-( without bill)
    Guess it could be much lesser, but the dealer was reluctant as he knew its availability elsewhere isn't easy.
    DENSO is a good go for 530/-, good brand,compact and sounds sharper than OE.

    Rs 800 is a good price. But should have taken with bill. I got mine for Rs 750 with bill and warranty.

    Hello everyone,
    Does anybody have any idea about hella chrome trumpet dual tone horns?
    Is it same as the black pearl with just cosmetic changes and more price?
    It is available at snapdeal for 1100.
    Anyway the horns goes inside the bumper, so I don't think there is any benefit from the cosmetic side.
    It is said that this one is a limited edition one, does that mean it's different from the normal ones in sound quality?
    Please help,
    Thank you

    The Chrome is louder than the black version. It's not limited for sure. But personally didn't like it, as it's too loud and much less warmer tone.

    Yeah that's sure. It's not a limited edition one as claimed!!:happy:
    Much less warmer tone??
    Did you mean it's sound is more shrill or sharp?
    I don't have any option for audition other than depending on YouTube and fellow members like you. Thank you.
    While driving I try my best to be a responsible one. I honk only at 1 second duration (mostly). So, being loud won't be much of a problem.
