Enjoy an immersive sound from a stylish soundbar, with the Sony HT-X8500.

Surround yourself with Dolby Atmos and DTS:X sound

Using Sony’s Vertical Surround Engine, the Sony HT-X8500 reproduces ‘vertical’ audio to give truly uplifting sound. Compatible with both Dolby Atmos and DTS:X formats, this Sony soundbar gives incredibly enveloping sound from a compact unit. Whatever your room’s size or shape, this Sony soundbar makes three-dimensional cinema sound a breeze.

Upscale to 7.1.2 for ‘wrap around’ sound
If you want to feel totally immersed by your favourite movie, try the impressive 7.1.2 feature. At the touch of a button, Sony’s advanced signal processing converts any audio signal into a pseudo 7.1.2 channel signal – totally surrounding you.

Built-in subwoofer
Featuring built-in, dual subwoofer units, the Sony HT-X8500 delivers a full-bodied sound that easily beats most TVs for bass power.

Sound modes tailored to your viewing
No fewer than five, tailored sound modes optimise the audio to whatever you’re watching. Cinema mode maximises the thrills and spills from action movies. Developed by PlayStation, Game studio mode gets the most from gaming. Sports mode makes you feel like you’re ‘there’ and part of the crowd while news mode is designed for the clearest dialogue. For the most detailed sound, switch to Music mode.

Wireless TV connection
Pair this soundbar with a compatible Sony Bravia TV and enjoy wireless connectivity between the two. Using a permanent Bluetooth connection, the wireless connection cuts down on cable clutter.

HDR10, Dolby Vision and HLG compatible HDMI interface
Fitted with one HDMI input and one output, the HT-X8500 is ideal for connecting a UHD Blu-ray player or games console. Better still, the HDMI sockets are compatible with HDR10, Dolby Vision and HLG (Hybrid Log Gamma) formats, meaning that the latest UHD formats are all covered.

Stream your music with wireless Bluetooth
More than just a boost for your TV sound, the Sony HT-X8500 soundbar also makes a handy Bluetooth speaker for your music. Pair with your smartphone, tablet or computer and you'll be able to stream all your stored music and favourite streaming services such as Spotify, Deezer and Apple Music - without the need for any wires.

Put your TV’s speakers on mute and enjoy sound to match the picture, with the Sony HT-X8500.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It does what we hoped it would do! Being both hard of hearing, we bought the soundbar as we were told that speech from the TV would be clearer. It definitely is and we can both listen/watch in comfort. We don't use any of the other myriad features but it is easy to use for what we want. It also looks stylish and unobtrusive.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love the sound, love the bass undertones. I wanted a high quality soundbar and this is just the ticket. Lovely bass sound, different sound features depending on what you are viewing or listening to

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Difficult to setup Difficult to setup but once it was working with my 3 year old 4K UHD curved Samsung TV, after buying a high speed hdmi lead and starting the setup from scratch, it works fine. The sound quality is adequate but disappointed with Dolby Atmos as it is not as I thought it would be. I nearly returned the soundbar but decided to see how it goes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far - very happy We bought this as a partner to our Sony Bravia KD43XH8196 which we bought two weeks ago and so far we are very pleased with it, although I'm still learning how to use it properly.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Product. Purchased this product to use with my smart TV and I and I am quite impressed with the sound and features. No issues with lip sync at all and the soundbar works well with the tv's builtin apps. I would be happier if there was a little more bass and if I could add a separate bass speaker I would but unfortunately I cannot do this. Over-all though the soundbar is good value for money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Soundbar but the main reason to buy this was to compliment my new tv and upgrade from an old sound system. The sound is great and makes tv programmes better, so i would recommend it for that. The down side is that it doesn't come with an onscreen display. this means that you never really know what setting you are on or what the setting was the last time it was used. This leaves to a lot of guess work and pushing of buttons. I probably would have bought something else had i know this.
