I found these online:

Has anyone found something better? Right now I have the kind that strap to the headrest, but the kids feet keep pulling the wires out.

That seems way over priced to me. My local car audio video shop put dual headrests in my truck for $600.00. They were linked to a single DVD player but for me that was all I needed. Check out your local "pimp my ride" locations. There are better deals to be had. Ill be putting some dvd players in this car too, just not yet.

That is way overpriced. Check Ebay there are much cheaper ones available that work very well. I had two i installed in my kia sorento before i bought my sonata and they worked great.

Mine look great ! The black leather was a perfect match. I got mine only because of my two year old daughter , keeps her entertained.

The dimensions of the headrest is 10" L, 7" H, and 6" W.


thebeet..considering the forward/downward tilt of the headrests...how difficult is the angle for people to see it in the back seat..and is it adjustable?

also..how did they power this? would love to see pics of the install.

Not adjustable ,the angle is fine . I guess if you're really tall and you have to ride with the seat leaned way back it will be an issue.

Hang/fasten a couple of first gen iPads from the headrests and now you have all types of entertainment for way less....

These are Rosens, which makes them higher end (you see them installed in a lot of Mercs and Italian sports cars). I'm actually taking mine in to get some fitted in a few weeks (the AV 7700 with sunvisor monitors for the front).

If you have active head restraints then these are not for you. You need the AV 7700's instead.

What sets the Rosens apart from many other models is that they color match the headrests and use the same grain of leather as that used in the vehicle.They also have multiple inputs and a built-in video gaming system. Your rear seat passengers are not confined to watching the same thing with these. One can watch a DVD while the other watches a movie on an iPod or USB stick, or plays one of the 25 built-in video games.

I looked at the cheaper systems but I wanted something that gave more functionality and allowed me to connect my iPhone (the iPhone is connected to my SlingBox at home, so this is a way to get satellite TV in the car).

All that having been said, they ARE expensive, especially when you can get a set of Pyle 7" headrest monitors for about $200.

If anyone's interested, I can post some pics when my install is done.

Best regards.
