”The Sony HT-X8500 soundbar may be the best value you can buy.” ’TechRadar’ – Best In Class – 5 Stars.

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.
