Designed to bring the connected lifestyle into your car, the Pioneer DEH-X8500DAB not only plays back CDs; it also plays tunes from your iPod, iPhone, Android smartphone or USB stick. A front illuminated Aux-in and dual rear USB ports provide portable devices with direct connection to the tuner's sound system. Enjoy App Control for selected apps. Connect your iPod, iPhone or Android smartphone* via USB and listen to your favourite music and streaming audio apps.

A built-in DAB+ tuner lets you explore thousands of new radio stations and additional sources of traffic-related services. (DAB antenna required, not included) You can pause play during calls or skip back to check song titles or repeat a track.

With MIXTRAX EZ on board, you can create non-stop, club-style mixes from your music, illuminating your dashboard with colour effects based on the beat of each song. Or liven up your in-car entertainment even more by matching the wide-angle, multi-colour RGB display and key illumination to your dashboard, favourite colour or mood.

The Pioneer DEH-X8500DAB is fully Bluetooth-enabled, you can make hands-free calls, control specific apps and stream audio from compatible devices. SSP makes pairing to your device a breeze and ASR assures optimum audio quality while streaming.

With a MOSFET 50W x 4 amplifier set-up and high-grade audio parts inside, the DEH-X8500DAB takes in-car audio to the next level. If that isn't enough, you can always use the 3 RCA pre-outs to hook up another stereo component, like an extra amp for the front and rear speakers or a subwoofer, for example.
