I've committed to purchase an '07 V8 that includes the RSE system from a dealer 600 miles away. I'm flying out on Sat. morning to pick it up and drive it home. Before I arrive I want to make sure that I get what I'm supposed to in terms of headphones and remotes. I've seen some used models locally with 2 remotes, one for each screen. Should the system come with 2 sets of the IR headphones and one remote, or something else? The salesman I'm dealing with hasn't exactly demonstrated that he's very knowledgeable about these vehicles so far, so I want to be able to just tell him what I expect to be there.<p>Scott

2 headphones, 1 remote. <p>The cheap ebay folding headphones work better for storage, since you can keep them in the door pockets. The original headphones don't fold (or at least the '05 headphones don't).

Re: RSE - what's included? (tremor12)

If it is the factory installed Volvo RSE (one DVD player built into the back of the center console, two screens in the front headrests) there should be two wireless headphones and one remote. If it is the dealer installed Volvo Dual Screen RSE (two screens in the front headrests with built in DVD player) it will have two remotes and two wireless headphones.

I bought my RSE from a dealer closeout sale and installed it myself. I received two DVD players in headrests, two remotes, two headphones, and two short video/audio extension cables intended for use with game consoles, along with cables, wire ties, instructions, etc.
