What to look for when buying a headrest DVD player

The top 3 things when searching for the best headrest DVD player for your vehicle are: fit, compatibility and color.

  1. Headrest DVD Player Fit - To measure for fit, measure the distance between the 2 headrest posts to see if the headrest DVD player will adjust to fit your distance.  Most headrest DVD players will fit posts between 4" and 7.5" apart. Check out our headrest DVD player fit guide for more details.
  2.  Headrest DVD Player Compatibility - The key for compatibility is mostly to see if your vehicle has "Active Headrest Technology" or not.  If it does, you'll want to get the clamp on style headrest DVD players so you may keep your existing headrests installed and keep the active headrest technology, well....active.
  3. Headrest DVD Player Colors - While there are a million color variations for vehicle interiors, for headrest DVD players there are only a few color options available.  The key is to get a free headrest color sample in advance and find the color that best matches your vehicle interior before ordering.

Key terminology for headrest DVD players

  • In-pillow headrest DVD players are built into the headrest pillow to allow for that factory install look as well as possibly hide the monitors from outside view or possible theft.
  • Clamp-on headrest DVD players do just as described.  They clamp onto the metal posts of your existing headrest pillows to allow for an easy install and to not disrupt the "Active Headrest Technology" that may be included as a safety feature in your vehicle.
  • Active Headrest Technology is a technology where the headrest pillows will move during the event of an accident to help reduce the possibility of neck or head injury.  
  • Pass-through AV technology is the ability to pass-through the audio/video signal from one unit to the next unit.  For example the Autotain DREAM units have pass-through technology where you can watch your in-dash unit on DREAM headrest 1 and it will pass-through to DREAM headrest 2 so you can watch the in-dash on both headrest units.
  • Headrest screen resolution is much the same as for TV screens.  The resolution is measured by the number of pixels across and down the screen.  The more pixels, the higher the resolution and the better quality the image.

How to install the headrest DVD player

Headrest DVD player installation can be considered "Very easy" for some people while "Very difficult" for others.  This will mostly depend on the skills and comfort level of the person doing the installation and the vehicle the headrest monitors are being installed in.  The key factors in determining the degree of difficulty are:

  1. Will you be running cables through the car seats and if so, do the car seat backs come off for easier access?  Sometimes simply removing the back of the car seat can be the most difficult part of the entire install.  In most cases there will be tabs, clips or velco near the bottom of the seat as a starting point at removing the back cover. 
  2. Powering the headrests to the fuse box may become the second hardest step of the install.  If the fuse box is far away, we highly recommend running a single 14 gauge wire from the fuse box back to both headrests rather than running 2 or more wires to the fuse box.  Power both red wires to the fuse and ground both black wires to an unpainted bolt on the metal frame of the car.  If powering at the fuse box seems too difficult, most packages come with the cigarette plug power option if powering to the fuse box is too difficult.
  3. Connecting the wires is next.  Connect both the RCA yellow, red and white wires together and also the wire assembly to the headrest cable that ran down through the seat. 

TIP: be sure to tape these connections before hiding the wires under the seats or under the carpet to avoid any cables coming disconnected later.

TIP: Test the power cable connections with either the fuse box or the cigarette power plugs before installing to make sure you have a good connection and all cables and units are working as they should.  This will save time in case something needs to be fixed or exchanged.

 


 Searching for the Best Headrest DVD Players

If you're still searching for the best headrest DVD players on the market, take a look at our top 8 headrest DVD player list we've organized. 

 


Top USA Based Headrest DVD Player Brands

When searching for higher quality, greater value, top notch local customer support and the best deals on the Internet for headrest DVD players, the only choice is to go with a USA based brand name.  For headrest DVD players, there are a few choices.  Much like an Apple iPhones, this doesn’t mean the product is “Made in America” but the product holds a level of quality that American’s desire.

  1. Autotain – Lincoln, NE - Autotain is one of the leading USA based brands with a total focus of over 11 years on designing and delivering the best value and features for headrest DVD players.  Their focus is why we place them at the top of the list while others lack the focus to deliver the best.  Best known for their “Complete Packages” that include everything you need for installation as well as very detailed instruction videos.
  2. Tview – Houston, TX - Tview has a limited focus on headrest DVD players, flip-down monitors and a few similar products.  This limited focus is why they land in the #2 spot. Tview is mostly distributed to local car audio install shops across the country but you may also find their products online.
  3. Pyle – Brooklyn, NY - Pyle audio has been around for a very long time and we consider them a mass retailer with 1,000’s of products across mobile audio, mobile video, marine audio, marine video and DJ equipment for the most part.  If low price is your top priority and you’re willing to sacrifice features, Pyle is a brand to consider.
  4. Rockville – Inwood, NY - Rockville is another mass retailer with 1,000 of products much like Pyle.  Their strength and focus is primarily on low price 7” headrest models.  Based on our research they’ve been selling the exact same models for 3-4 years with very limited upgrades.  The low price is the leading factor for customers who choose their model.  Again, if price is the top factor and you’re willing to sacrifice on a few features, consider Rockville.
  5. Audiovox  - New York, NY -  A.K.A. Voxx Electronics from 2011 and beyond.  Audiovox is one of the largest public companies that sell headrest DVD players.  One of their strengths is having a custom design for nearly each vehicle on the market.  If you’re searching for that factory install look than Audiovox is a brand to consider.
  6. Rosen – Corona, CA - Rosen is another headrest DVD player brand that has a strong focus on OEM or OEM similar type headrest DVD players.  Much like Audiovox, if you’re searching for that factory look, take a look at Rosen.
  7. Boss – Oxnard, CA - Boss audio is a mass retailer with 100’s of products but only has two 7” headrest models on their website at the time of this article.  Maybe they’ve moved onto other products for the most part.
