I would go for an FM modulator but currently use our PC creative 2.1 speakers plugged into the invertor - not an ideal solution but out of bits and peices we already had lying around. those infra red headphones are rubbish they give the kids headaches hardly everwork if your head moves and cost a fortune in batteries. the only advantage is that we can talk about them whilst they are watching a dvd
the ones I have seen take audi jacks, memory cards, usb, and possibly an Ipod connection (maybe through usb too??) it plugs into the ciggarette lighter and you "transmit" the FM radio system and merely tune the radio into that frequency eg 95.8... they are not really legal in the UK - although they are very short range and I am sure lots of people use them.
This is a factory DVD player? I'm pretty sure there is already an FM modulator mounted behind the glove box. Play with the radio stations while a DVD is playing and you should find one that will play the DVD audio. I think it's 88.somthing.

1 uses a box of tricks mounted inline of the aerial for the head unit, this is what Kia supply for DVD players.
Other is the (illegal in UK) FM modulator transmitter.
Normally fitted with a switch, often found on the panel below the rear wash wipe button, enables you to turn fm off and use headphones.
Was an option, so unless you asked for it, you wouldn't have got it.
