My wife finds the passenger headrest uncomfortable, especially since she can't adjust it. Apparently, the headrest in our 2017 Pilot EX-L can't be adjusted.

Has anyone installed a headrest from another Honda product which is adjustable?

Correct. This allows you to adjust the headrest up and down. I want to adjust the angle of the headrest forward and back.
i thought I read someone had reversed it so it tilted back. But it wouldn't provide any protection in a rear end collision that way so you might want to think twice about doing that.

The Honda front seat headrests don't adjust forward and back. To do so would defeat the purpose of helping to prevent whiplash. You could try this if you like. Adjusting the Tilt of Car Headrests

I wouldn't do it, but it is an option, just not a safe one.
