the headphones are rubbish, I got 2 additional sets for free when I bought my car (they told me they were £30 new), as we have 4 kids that is fine, but if you turn your head they crackle, are ill fitting for smaller children. in actual fact the only good thing is you can talk about private things when they are watching, but the amount of faffing about changing batteries, adjusting volume adjusting seats taking off when they fall asleep.
you can get cheap fm modulators of ebay for about £20 (remember these are illegal in the UK ;))
I actually plug our creative 2:1 computer speakers into an invertor and the dvd and let them listen to it that way, you may find if you have the "good" kia stereo it has a built in AV input to plug the dvd audio straight into. to be honest they are only really going to watch the dvd on journeys longer than 30-60 minutes anyway.
good luck, but I do suggest that you attempt to watch a whole dvd using the headphones from different seats before you part with more cash.
sorry scratch most of my post, I didn't see that you cannot touch any connectors at the back of the DVD player, what a terrible design, how on earth are you supposed to plug in a game cube or playstation into the back to play games in the car. :blink:
from the wiring diagram you would need to take the console off and route your own audio cables.
