Sony has unveiled a pair of compact soundbars, the HT-MT300 and the HT-MT500. Both models feature a modern design to, says Sony, match current living room design trends. The HT-MT500 also features high-resolution audio for enhancing and upscaling existing audio, while both feature a wireless and slim subwoofer. Both models include both NFC and Bluetooth.

Unlike some soundbars, these models have a slim size to blend well with a room without sticking out or getting in the way of other devices. Both the MT300 and the MT500 have a tactile finish with a matte grille on the front and a leather ‘look’ on the surface. Both cremewhite and charcoal black color options will be available.

The MT300 model has both NFC and Bluetooth; the MT500 model adds Chromecast on top of that, as well as Spotify Connect. The latter model includes a Music Service button for fast access to whatever the last song you listened to on Spotify Premium was.

Both of these soundbar models feature a Sofa Mode for feeling the ‘low frequency effects’ if the subwoofer is put beneath a couch. The subwoofer, of course, can be positioned elsewhere, as well. There’s also a cinema-style surround sound called S-Force PRO Front Surround. When these models launch in the near future, the MT300 will be priced at about 300 Euros and the MT500 at about 500 Euros.
