Transform your living room into the ultimate home cinema with the Sony HT-X850 Soundbar.

This compact soundbar includes a dual built-in subwoofer, keeping your room as sleek and clutter free as possible.

Sony’s unique Vertical Surround Engine puts you at the very heart of your favourite movies and shows with beautifully clear sound. From wall-shaking explosions to hushed dialogue and subtle soundtracks - now you can hear it all.

The combination of Dolby Atmos® and DTS:X® carry you away with mind-blowingly lifelike sound and create a truly three-dimensional audio experience. Despite its slim design, the Sony HTX8500 packs a mighty punch, with a dual subwoofer that provides deep bass tones, without cluttering your room with an external unit.

This Sony Dolby Atmos soundbar is also designed to deliver the flawless picture quality. 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.

Thanks to seamless Bluetooth® playback, the soundbar can also take the role of your living room sound system. Stream all your top playlists and podcasts wirelessly from your mobile device, from wherever you are in the room.

With the HDMI Enhanced Audio Return Channel (eARC), you can connect your TV to your Sony soundbar system 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 convenience.

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.
