Exclamation Need Information

I recently bought new headlights for my 1999 Blazer that include H1 High and Low Beam (separate of course). My Blazer also has Daytime Running Lights which seem to work off of the High Beam Bulb. My question is, will any high beam bulbs work to have 2 different outputs of light. The Daytime Running Lights (of course) are WAY dimmer than the High Beam, but they both come from the same bulb. I was looking for newer bulbs to buy (white instead of yellow) and wasn't sure if i need to be looking for special h1 bulbs that have both options or if just a regular high beam h1 bulb would work.

Every place I searched has either just "High Beam" or "Fog Light/DRL".

Please help, thanks.

Default

They are dimmed by a reduced power input when Daytime Running Lights are on. Full power is supplied to the bulb for the Main Beams.

Needn't a special bulb, as well as I know.
