Sony HT-X8500 Dolby Atmos Soundbar with Vertical Surround Engine

Transform your living room into the ultimate home cinema with the Sony HT-X8500 one-piece sound bar, which comes with a dual built-in subwoofer.

Sony’s unique Vertical Surround Engine puts you at the very heart of your favourite movies and shows. Whether you’re watching an action blockbuster, spellbinding fantasy or high-octane thriller, the sound bar immerses you in beautifully clear sound. Hushed dialogue, ambient noises, subtle soundtracks – now you can hear it all.

Whatever viewing space you’re in, the Sony HT X8500 sound bar surrounds you with captivating big screen sound from every direction – even above you. It combines Dolby Atmos® and DTS:X® to carry you away with mind-blowingly lifelike sound and create a truly three-dimensional audio experience.

And despite its slim design, this Sony HTX8500 packs a mighty punch. It comes with a built-in dual subwoofer, so you can enjoy deep bass tones, without cluttering your room with an external unit. Perfect for big, booming movie moments.

This Sony Dolby Atmos soundbar is also designed to deliver the flawless picture quality your pitch-perfect sound deserves. Thanks to its lossless 4K HDR and Dolby Vision pass-through, you can connect your games console or Blu-ray player via HDMI and enjoy impeccable, pin-sharp images on your TV.

Featuring seamless Bluetooth® playback, the soundbar can take the role of your living room sound system. Stream all your top playlists and weekly podcasts wirelessly from your mobile device, from wherever you are in the room. From chart hits to rock solos and jazz grooves, you can hear it all with rich sound and stunningly clear detail.

With the HDMI Enhanced Audio Return Channel (eARC), you can connect your TV to your Sony soundbar system effortlessly, with just a single cable. Now nothing stands between you and enjoying your top films, TV series and music with exquisitely high-quality sound.

This also allows you to control your TV and soundbar from the same remote for maximum ease and convenience. And with additional connection options including analogue, optical and Bluetooth®, you can be sure you’ll get up and running in no time, whatever model TV you have.

Whether you prefer it mounted on the wall or neatly stowed beneath your screen, the sleek and minimal Sony soundbar will make a stylish complement to your TV. It also comes finished with eye-catching details, such as a punched metal speaker grille and subwoofer ducts on each side.
