Adjustable Headrests for 2010+

I ordered a set of new adjustable headrests from MRT and installed them today. Materials and fit and finish are great. They are slightly larger then the stock headrests and allow the tilt to be adjusted from straight up to tilted far forward. I like the tilt to be more "straight up" so I can bring the seat-back to a more vertical position without being hit by the headrest. My wife also prefers her seat-back to be more vertical and likes the new headrests. The material and stitching of the headrests on the website
http://store.mrt-direct.com/11a100.html
match the premium convertible charcoal-black seats - others can be ordered by phone. I have no relation to the company - just a customer.

For that much I will just let my wife live with it!

Doesn't bother my neck one bit, even with a helmet on.

Are there other comparable, lower-priced parts on the market? Thanks for any input.

No, but a lot of people just flip the headrest around so it goes to the back if needed.

It is a bit steep, but if the headrests bother you that much I guess you'd pay it.

Too bad, it's something Ford should really incorporate into the seats already.

When you add the item to the shopping cart, it seems to show as 1 unit, not set...

My box said "1 Set." Also, I called them before I ordered. You might want to try that if you are interested

Thanks for the clarification. I was interested in confirming why the mismatch was there. Appreciate it!

They should clarify that it's a "pair" or a "set" on the website. It would keep a lot of potential customers from running away...

I've tried that and it's an instant trip back to 1965 [no head support whatsoever]. I don't want that, I just prefer not having my chin driven into my chest, that's all.

I don't know if they charge any extra for the "saddle" interior material. There is a phone number on their website - on the page with the headrests - and they encourage people to call with any questions. The headrests look great and I really like the way you can adjust the seat and the headrest the way you want it

We just made the change on our website...$224.99 for both the passenger and the driver head rest.

Great product

I ordered a pair and they are great. Color and stitching match perfect. Money well spent if the factory headrest bother you or your passenger.
