OVERVIEW

Sound excellence for a tiny price.

5-input, 2-bus, ultralow noise, high-headroom mixer with main mix, stereo CD/tape, and separate headphone outputs. CD/tape inputs assignable to headphone output or main mix outputs. Behringer's innovative Xenyx mixers provide the home recordist and club musician with pristine sound quality and cutting-edge features for very little outlay. The new Xenyx Mic Preamp approaches the sound quality, transparency, headroom, and even the dynamic range of boutique-style, standalone mic preamps. Behringer's neo-classic "British EQ" brings back the warmth and musicality of those '60s and '70s mega-console desks that made music history.

FEATURES
  • Premium ultra low-noise, high headroom analog mixer
  • State-of-the-art Xenyx mic preamp comparable to standalone boutique preamps
  • Neo-classic "British" 2-band EQ for warm and musical sound
  • Main mix, stereo CD/tape plus separate headphone outputs
  • CD/tape inputs assignable to headphone output or main mix outputs

Now you don't need a big budget for sound excellence. Order today!

    I owned an earlier version of this for many years. I initially bought it to enchance my old 4-track cassette recorder, and it made a WORLD of difference. For one thing, I could use condenser microphones - the built-in phantom power alone was worth the price. But I also noticed that it was pushing an audibly better signal onto the tape. I gave it to a friend who was putting together a studio, and instantly missed it.

    This time around I'm using the newer model, not only in the studio but also for a mini-PA mixer for coffehouse gigs. I bought a small powered monitor, and run this into it. I can use my good condenser microphone, and carry my PA in one hand - with the mixer in the gig bag!

    It's got TONS of connectivity. The engineers have thought of everything. Just about anything you can think of, you can find a way to do. This little gadget is a real problem solver.
    All of the most-used basic features of a much bigger mixer. A jewel in the studio, and it also can be a mixer for a mini-PA!
    It appears to be as well-made as it is well-thought-out.
    It's a great little multi-tool to have around, for less money than a heavy-duty mic stand.

    The compact size of this mixer is great for the home studio artist. However the model lacks some needed features. There isn't a power switch... that's right, NO POWER SWITCH!! Leaving it hooked up is not an option since you cannot EVER turn it off without unplugging it. The unit is also missing a Phantom Power on/off switch, leaving the XLR port hot 100% of the time needless to say this is NOT a good idea.

    My final problem with the 502 is the unit I recieved is that it had unfinished edges on the molded plastic, leaving them razor sharp! I had to rub these areas flat with another piece of plastic to make it safe to handle. Because of the unfinished edges and some other defects, the plastic end caps do not seat flush to the metal frame and looks really bad.

    In spite of all the above, it does perform as it should and does provide a budget solution.

    However, I feel this piece of equipment is poorly designed and constructed and I wish I had bought something different - I will be replacing this one soon with a model that has a power switch, phantom switch, and better constructed.

    Comments about Behringer Xenyx 502 Mixer:

    I've owned another small Behringer mixer (Eurorack UB802) for quite some time, which influenced my purchasing decision. I've used that one in demanding professional applications for years and it has performed flawlessly! I have also been extremely impressed with it's mic preamps, which sounds every bit as good as my high-end dedicated mic pre-amps and full size digital mixing consols. The mic-pre on the Xenyx 502 is presumably as good, except that it seems to not have a switch for phantom power, which could be a significant limitation for a lot of buyers as it elimates the use of most condenser microphones. However, I purchased the Xenyx 502 as a birthday present for my wife, an excellent bassist, to allow her to practice her electric bass along to CDs and tapes using headphones (CD/tape machine plugs into the "2 track input"). For that purpose it has the right features, performs very well, with good sound quality, and she is thrilled with it. She is not a tech-head type, but found it relatively easy to use, although I did help her get it set up.

      Started a small church. Needed some type of monitor system that was afordable. With this unit, the musicians and the singers can have an "in ear" system that works great and saves thousands.

      Comments about Behringer Xenyx 502 Mixer:

      I use this mixer at home to practice along with an iPod either to headphones or to my Mackie monitors. One day the left channel cut out. After extensive troubleshooting I determined the left RCA input quit. Since I didn't register the product online, I am out of the 90 day warranty. You get what you pay for, I guess...

          using a very basic amp with a line out and HD280 pro sennheisers, this is a great way to practice in the apartment, jam along with mp3's and youtube. Incidentally, makes my rather basic computer's audio sound a hundred times better.

          Can't go wrong for this price.

              I would have gave it 5 stars if it had a on/off switch. Works great for my guitar pedal and computer. Just plug them in and put on your headphones and practice and the wife doesn't tell me to turn it down anymore. Works great. Great sound with lots of volumn if you need it

              Totally satisfied with this product.
              I purchased this mixer for my computer to help raise my voice for a cd that I was doing & I was totally amazed at how much it helped. I would recommend this mixer to anyone who asked about one.
              It is one of the best little mixer's I ever used.
              The price was within my range of what I could afford right now so that was an added bonus

              Worked great "right out of the box".
              Has everything I need.
              Nice design and layout. Seems solid construction.
              The best value out there for the money.
