Myron & Davis Custom Headrest Monitors

Myron & Davis Custom Headrest Monitors

Headrest monitors are becoming more popular in cars these days, especially in comparison to the larger overhead monitors. While installing a flip-down monitor can sometimes be easier and result in a larger screen, it is at the cost of a rearview mirror. Headrest monitors do not block any of the drivers view and put a screen directly in front of the viewer. For that reason alone, many people across the world are becoming converted to the convenience of Myron & Davis headrest monitors.

There are many things that separate Myron & Davis aside from all the other aftermarket headrest manufacturers out there. It is these differences that make the cost worth it. One of the first things to note is that the headrests are custom made for your car. That is a bold and rare statement to hear in a day and age where one-size-fits-all solutions are found everywhere. By checking the application guides and then supplying the Sonic Electronix Service Rep with your vehicle information, you are preparing yourself for a factory fit and finish. From the leather grain to the leather color and from the shape to the headrest piping, these headrests will seamlessly blend in to your car.

They are available in a few different configurations with DVD players and standard headrest monitors. For example, the Myron & Davis P7HDM2LR features a pair of headrest monitors, each with their own DVD player. This way the passengers can enjoy their own choice of movies without making the other passengers watch the same. For those that only want a single headrest DVD player, the Myron & Davis P7HDM2ER is the perfect choice for any vehicle.

One of the biggest reasons to choose a Myron and Davis headrest monitor is the safety aspect. Realize that by installing a headrest monitor in your car, you are effectively putting a TV (and possibly a DVD player) right next to your head. In the case of an accident, you are going to want to make sure you are safe and protected. In order to ensure its safety, Myron & David performs a series of tests to guarantee performance and safety. In fact, the products are tested with the same OEM safety standards that car manufacturers use on their factory installed headrests. Each headrest exceeds the DOT (Department of Transportation) regulations. EMI and EMC tests are also performed to ensure safety while the monitor is in use. Safety should always be number 1 on your priority list, and so should Myron & Davis.

Concept Chameleon Headrest Monitors

Concept Chameleon CLD-700

By Samantha R. – Product Specialist

Used as a practical electronic component in 1962, LED backlighting has been introduced to headrest monitors specifically through Concept Enterprises.  Being one of the very few headrest monitors that use this LED backlighting technology for their LCD displays; Concept’s products have come out with a huge bang as well as dominating 2010 technology with opportunities for further growth. Providing a vehicle with exceptional picture quality and high efficiency, LED backlit panels create the ultimate entertainment experience for you and your ride. In fact, LCD monitors with LED backlights will be the dominant lighting source for display applications for the years to come. A drained battery is never useful and with LED backlighting the monitors will draw less power providing your displays with a longer running time.

The purpose of designing a single headrest monitor that isn’t sold in pairs is to give the user more options for customization. Seeing as how we are no longer dependent on radios, the in-dash receiver, overhead, and headrest monitors are becoming the luxurious DVD player add-on for the car. Usually, the headrest monitors come equipped with interchangeable color shrouds (covers) that match the interior of your vehicle. Making sure it matches and fits your car is usually becomes a huge hassle, but when the product comes equipped with accessories and covers, it makes choosing and purchasing much simpler.

Essentially the two monitors are the same aside from a few different features that could put more money in your pocket. Rather than spending twice the money and having two built-in DVD players, purchasing one can do you just as good. The Concept Chameleon CLD-700 is a perfect example of a headrest monitor with built-in DVD player. Getting this specific monitor would only require an additional headrest without a DVD player built-in, like the Concept Chameleon CLS-700, which conveniently works with the DVD player monitor. In the case where you decided you wanted to have two different movies playing per headrest, you would then purchase two of the built-in player monitors. Although more costly and a more technical installation, this option is not necessarily needed to have a luxury vehicle. For a bright, vivid display in your car, you can trust the Chameleon headrest monitors from Concept to get you the video playback you want.
