4 seperate LEDs with fiberglas cables, endless color Combos, brightness adjustable and the LEDs don't get too hot. That fiberglas can be tugged in pretty good, so it will be more like a indirect ambient light, instead of a glowing cable, which is right in your eyes.
I left mine in and love them (EL wire), I don't care what anyone else thinks. They look great in person and are not at all bright at night (exposure is turned up in the below photo).

To deal with the high frequency whine, I encased the converter in about 1.5" of high density foam. You can't hear a thing.
