We Think YOU Should Know

  • 12 Month Pioneer Australian Warranty
  • Risk Free Purchase Guarantee (bottom of page)
  • Bluetooth enabled
  • Dual rear USB port
  • Aux-in
Designed to bring the connected lifestyle into your car, the 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. 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.

Fully Bluetooth-enabled, you can also 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, this tuner 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.

    You can then control your receiver with the steering wheel remote control.
  • High Voltage Output: 4V

    By providing a strong signal, with less noise and more definition, the Hi-Volt pre-outs reduce demand on the input circuit of the amps so they can work with lower gain settings, resulting in improved sound quality and a wider dynamic range.

    RCA pre-outs enable you to easily expand your sound system. 

    You can significantly improve your in-car sound quality by connecting extra amplifiers to your headunit, for example.

    The RCA pre-outs let you create the exact sound you want, with the focus on complete flexibility.

    When you activate the Low Pass Filter, only those frequencies below a specified frequency are output through a specified speaker.
