I have a 2005 Grand Caravan with the DVD system. When I purchased the vehicle, the dealer told me it was equipped for Wireless headphones with the DVD system, but it did not have them. Now I am wanting to purchase them before taking a 10-hour vacation ride next week. The dealer says that it takes the "XRV" headphones, which are $38.00 per headset. I would like to possibly purchase better ones at Best Buy or somewhere, but am not sure what I need?

Can somebody tell me whether these are normal FM wireless, or are they Infrared, or what? What do I need to look for at a local retailer that will work with my Grand Caravan? Any help would be greatly appreciated! I need to purchase this week. Thanks! :)

As far as I can tell by doing a Google Search they are infa-red type......Ask the question at a local dealer....

I tried a pair of Infrared headsets that my buddy had and they did not work. It was just static in the headsets......any thoughts on that?

Yes, go to a local dealer (audio store)......and see what they suggest.....you can even try the local Dodge Dealer, they may have an audio shop they deal with they can send you to

aftermarket infared headphones retail for about $40. I use audiovox mvirhs headphones everyday for that price. just buy the factory ones.

the only thing about the factory ones is they have those really cheap foamy earpieces on them. I was hoping to purchase some aftermarket sets that are more of the cushiony leather type earcushions.

Soo, am I understanding that the 2005 Grand Caravan has the FM signal style headsets? Not Infrared? And if that is so, how can I tell what frequency that the DVD system is using to know what headsets to purchase?

Honestly a good stereo shop should be able point you in the right direction in about 30 seconds. Maybe even be able to help you over the phone.
