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.

Good unit !
kate on 07/10/2014 4 star rating

Great unit! Had this fitted in my 2003 mini. It has made a massive difference to the speakers. The sound so much louder and clearer now. The colours change on the unit to match my car, it also charges my phone. The DAB is crystal clear and sounds better than some of my discs. Great product!
