Change connector going to head light maybe getting a bad connection.

You can't touch the glass part of the bulb assembly. If you do the oils from your skin create hot spots on the bulb and cause very premature burn out. HTH. -Jim

Check the car's alternator charging voltage. If the same bulb keeps burning out the alternator may be putting too much voltage. Voltage measured at the battery engine running should be 13.8 to 14.6 volts. Also Jim is correct, touching today's bulbs with bare fingers may cause them to soon fail. If you do touch one, use rubbing alcohol and clean the glass surface of the bulb to remove the oils from your fingerprints.

Mine the socket keeps burning out. Like mark asked can you ground them??

You may need to install a new pig tail. Loose connections can cause burnout.
