SonyHT-X8500 Soundbar Review
On the face of it, the Sony HT-X8500 Soundbar appears to be a simple 2.1-speaker set with a small built-in sub woofer. But it offers so much more – a complete home theater system in a box that’s comparable to buying four different TV sets. It has Sony’s Audyssey sound card and THX cinema enhancement technology. The Soundbar is surprisingly compact and surprisingly powerful for such a tiny speaker set. In fact, it’s small enough that you can easily place it on a table or entertainment center cabinet.
Like most small, compact speakers, it has no true dome, however it does have a tweeter. It’s built into the woofer, so it doesn’t make a big impact on the sound quality. Sony claims the Soundbar will reproduce a five channel surround sound effect, so you get five-zone surround sound with Dolby Atmos and DTS: X. It also has Dolby Pro Logic II so it plays back video in true cinematic surround sound format, and it has the same high and low frequencies as the original television broadcast.
There are two special features of the Sony HT-X8500 Soundbar that set it apart from other audio/video Bluetooth devices. One special feature is the ability to play MP3 music through it. This is great if you’re listening to music and want to listen to it on the go. Another special feature is it can connect to your Bluetooth device, like an iPod or cell phone. Other special features include:
The Sony Soundbar HID ultra light Bluetooth audio player has an amazing range of over two hundred feet. It has a high quality sound, great clarity, and crisp sound, but has the special benefit of being able to use your Bluetooth device without using an additional amplifier. This means you can use your regular stereo speaker system to enjoy the audio from the Soundbar. On top of this, the surround sound feature allows you to listen to your favorite music tracks without having to use your home theater’s sound system.
A number of people have commented that the best soundbars have to be the wireless ones. They are simple, easy to operate, have superb sound quality, and are extremely lightweight and portable. The Sony HID soundbars are one of the best soundbars to have because they are built in speakers. They are not designed to broadcast surround sound like regular TV sound bars are, but they do give you the best sound quality that you can enjoy from a wireless device. If you want to watch your favorite movies and music, then this is the perfect way to do it!
The Sony HID soundbar also features Dolby Atmos. This technology is revolutionary and allows you to experience what it’s like to be in a live concert, with your own surround sound system. You will hear every note, and the crowd will be properly transported to the concert hall. If you love rock or heavy metal music, then the Atmos technology in the Sony HID soundbar will make you glad you took the time to check this out.
You can connect your Sony HID soundbar to your home wireless network or connect it to your laptop or tablet so you can enjoy your audio on the go. Wi-Fi connectivity makes it easy to stream music or watch your favorite video clips to your device, wherever you happen to be. Bluetooth technology makes it easy to enjoy your audio on your portable media player, or Bluetooth headset. If you were worried about the quality of sound on your Bluetooth device, you don’t have to worry any more. The Bluetooth connection will output clear audio in any setting, and will even work with the latest devices.
The touch screen of the Sony HT-X8500 Soundbar makes using it easy, with its multi-functional buttons and jog wheels for input control. With its five different zone controls, you can get the best sound in any situation, regardless of whether you want music, audiobooks, or videos to listen to. And, with over two hundred channels to choose from, you can get audio in any room, with any size screen. You’ll even be able to listen to your favorite sports teams on your TV, with the latest surround sound Dolby atmos feature included in this set.
