headrest DVD player

Postby rocastro71 » Thu Oct 08, 2009 4:12 pm

Does anyone here have installed aftermarket headrest DVD players on their Ms? If yes, did you swap the original headrest to the aftermarket ones. Do the leather match exactly in color and grain? How much did you spend and please post pictures if you don't mind.I'm thinking of getting one for the kids to watch at the back. A local stereo shop recommends power acoustic or farenheit mobile video around $800 installed. Before I decide, I want to make sure the headrest matches well and the quality of the brands recommended are good. Thanks for your help.

Although probably much more expensive, your local Infiniti Parts has headrests with video screens in them. The Infiniti Headrests will match the leather and grain perfectly.

I ordered a pair and will be having them installed next Friday. Because I have the Bourbon interior, it was much harder to find a company that did it. A company by the name of SAAV had the Bourbon headrests. When they first came in they didn't quite match, but I've sent them back including one of my rear headrests and they are going to reupholster based on matching to the rear headrest.

I'll post once I get them back and have them installed.

You know it will cost a lot when it comes from the dealer. I bet it is made by visualogic as they are the only company I know so far that makes exact headrest monitors specific to the car. If it's from infiniti, it would have been offered as an accessory or option once the car was sold. Thanks for the help though.

There are other options as well. There is one made by Myron and Davis. Please find the factory matched ones at QualityMobileVideo.com . That's where I ordered my SAVVs from. They are great:

Some dealers carry products from http://www.invisionindustries.com/ . I was quoted $1750 installed for the SL model on mine. You need to check with Invision which dealers they go through. They have some pretty nice monitors as well, the newest one with LED backed screens.

I have Myron and Davis headrests. They match perfectly. I got the headrest with the TV's only. I then bought two DVD players and had them installed in the opening where the back armrest folds into. I have had them for a couple of weeks and they work great and look great too.

now let me ask: are those TV's a stand-alone unit? does each TV play it's own movie based on the fact that i see there is 2 dvd players. and for the sound, do you have to have headphones? or is the sound integrated in the factory system?

little explanation please

I can watch the same movie on both screens if I want, or I can watch two seperate movies on both screens. As far as sound, one is hooked up through the radio, via a FM modulator. THe other uses headphones. BUt if my wife and son are watching the same movie, then the sound plays through the radio, if my wife wants to watch something different, she uses headphones to hear, while my sons show is playing through the radio.

It seems like the color matches perfectly with the leather however, I can tell that the shape of the headrest is way different compared to the OEM headrest. If the company advertises that it is a "perfect match" headrest compared to the OEM, should'nt the shape of the headrest be the same shape as an OEM headrest. I was looking into universal headrest monitors compared to advertised ones like vizualogic and Myron and Davis "vehicle specific" monitors if there is any difference. Definitely they are more expensive than universal headrest monitors but is it worth paying more that's why I am asking anyone who has them if they can post pictures so our members cab compare. Thanks for the pictures.
