The Overhead Versus Headrest Monitor Video System Rumble

It’s the age old question, do I get a headrest monitor or a flip down monitor? How do you decide on how to invest your money? Which system is going to be more practical or more awesome?

Well one of the first questions you should be asking yourself is, who’s going to be using the screen and what kind of car is it going into? Do you have a sedan and drive around with people in your back seat who argue and can’t agree on the exact color the sky is let alone what movie to watch? Well then you might want to check out dual DVD player head rest monitors. Give them some headphones and enjoy the peace and quiet while they each watch their own separate movie or even listen to separate music than what you have going in your car.

Ok so maybe you have an Escalade or a Denali or a Suburban or any other vehicle with three rows of seats. Well swapping out all of those headrests can be costly and impractical so you might want to go with an overhead monitor. This way you can get a nice big screen and more people can watch without you having to replace four headrests. And hey, while you’re at it, go have yourself a tailgate party or a beach trip and pop open the back and keep everyone entertained. You’re sure to impress and be the life of the party. And if you’re impressing and entertaining, that means you don’t have to bring the drinks and food.

Since a 21” flip down screen might not be the best idea if you have a smaller car, you’re free to try of course but good luck, a headrest monitor would probably be the way to go.

So you’re the person who wants a perfect color match in your ride and everything has to perfect in your car, and who could blame you, if you’re willing to spend the extra cash on a higher end headrest monitors like the ones from CarShow or Vizualogic, you can get custom matched colors that are designed specifically for your year, make and model. This way you know you won’t have to worry about the headrest being a charcoal black when your interior is a slightly darker charcoal black.

If you’re like yours truly and want to have an awesome tricked out car, with a factory match look, but you haven’t quite gotten famous yet so you can’t spend too much money, you’ll want to go with an overhead monitor. If the flip down monitor doesn’t quite match your interior exactly, it’s not quite as noticeable. Or if you have a cloth interior, the overhead might be a better fit since a vinyl or leather headrest might look kinda awkward with cloth seats.

When it comes down to it either a flip down or headrests are going to be pretty sweet and are going to serve their purpose of providing some rear seat entertainment. If you have a smaller vehicle, want more viewing options and want to have a look as close to factory as possible you’ll probably want to go with headrest monitors. If you have a bigger vehicle with more seat rows, have cloth seats, and want the biggest screen you can get to entertain everyone then you’ll probably want to go with an overhead monitor. And hey, if you really want to want to turn your ride into a media entertainment hub and have the dough to spend on it, you can always go with both. Nothing will turn heads quite like a vehicle with a pair of headrest screens and a 17″ flip down screen. Do it…
