Sony Sony has detailed pricing on one of the sound bars announced at CES 2019 —  the HT-S350 — while the Dolby Atmos X8500 is yet to receive a release date.The $280 HT-S350 sound bar lacks any smart features (such as a voice assistant) but includes a wireless subwoofer and a claimed 320 watts of power.

The sound bar also uses an HDMI ARC connection and carries Bluetooth.Meanwhile, the X8500 is a 2.1-channel single sound bar with dual built-in “subwoofers” and the ability to simulate Atmos effects with its Vertical Surround Engine. The sound bar also includes other sound options including Cinema Mode, Game Mode and vocal enhancement. Connectivity includes HDMI eARC support for compatible televisions such as the 2019 Sony range in addition to Bluetooth. ht-x8500-main-1-shadow-large Sony Sony didn’t announce any “smart” audio products at the show, unlike LG and Klipsch with their smart sound bars.The HT-S350 will be available at the end of April, but the company hasn’t announced pricing or availability for the X8500. Originally published on Jan 7 2019 8:15 PMUpdated, April 18: Added pricing and availability for the HT-S350 2:04 Post a comment 85 Photos Now playing: Watch this: All the cool new gadgets at CES 2019 CES 2019: Every story so far: See all of CNET’s coverage of the year’s biggest tech show.
