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 1 out of 5 by from Great Sounds Sounds are brilliant but disappointed with lack of onscreen display.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not impressed. I bought this with high expectations. I found the background sounds completely over powered the voices making it virtually impossible to follow storylines.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great sound and easy to setup! I recently bought this Sound Bar as it has had great reviews and was covered by a 6 year warranty. It was delivered promptly and was very easy to install. I have to say I am delighted with the performance; I have poor hearing as it certainly enhances the experience of watching movies without loosing any clarity of speech.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great sound I bought this soundbar a few weeks ago, the sound is very good, loud and crisp especially connected with a 4k blu ray player. But the functionality is not impressive with no display on tv, the flashing lights on the top of the bar are confusing at best and they should have been on the front to be easily seen while seating down. So to summarise, this bar produces great sound, and I'm happy with it, but the lack of tv display is a real let down

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beyond expectations Sound when playing films is out of this world. Could be sitting in cinema

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Replacement for a sound base Bought this to replace a sound base, as it sits in front of new tv, the soundbase was too small to sit tv on.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent sound but lack of inputs. So what can I say about the htx-8500. Well it's a lovely looking bar, nice rounded edges and a very simple but sleek design. One earc/arc output and one hdmi 2.0 input to connect a single device to. I would have liked one or two more inputs but I can live with only one. The input is 4K and hdr pass through, I have gotten hdr and hdr 10+ but it will not pass through dolby vision. The output handles all of the major codecs including dolby atmos. Now to the sound, I'm a little of a Sony fan boy so perhaps a little bias, but the sound quality on this is really breathtaking. You can get a good sense of height for atmos and it really shines through. I have no hesitation in reccomending this at all. Oh and if Sony wanna send me anything to review please feel free lol.
