sw80's review"Simple and very cheap"

Behringer Xenyx 502
Most of Behringer’s mixers are up and down with me, as well with all of the gear they make. Sometimes it is of great quality and some times its not. This Xenyx 502 is one of those units that is on that border line between good and not so good. It is a 3 channel mixer with a preamp. It has 2 stereo channels and CD outs.
This unit is very small, but more importantly it is affordable for almost any budget. It only cost 45.00 dollars and it is one of the smallest mixers that I have ever used or seen in person. It has a 2 band EQ and Rotary level controls. The Xenyx 502 has some good features and for the price you really don’t have anything to lose. The issue is , the quality of how its built could be better, but for this price there is no way could really expect more. This unit is really light and plastic like. If it gets hit hard enough or dropped I wouldn’t be surprised if all the knobs broke off.


The Xenyx 502 does have phantom power, but no effects and it can not connect to your computer via USB. So it is more of like a cheap old school mixer without computer connectivity. With no channel inserts, no talkback and no direct outputs it sounds like this mixer would not be good for anything. But it is good for small analog projects.


Bottom line is , don’t get this mixer if you need on board effects or more than a 3 band EQ. But if you need something really cheap and simple then this could be a great first mixer to have. I don’t see anyone using this mixer for more than 8 months to a year, without it breaking or the person “growing” out of it.


The Xenyx 502 is a quiet little unit, but don’t plan on using it long. I just don’t think it can hold up. Great for a beginner or someone who needs a mixer and doesn’t have money to get a good one. You will eventually need to get a different one though.

sin's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" It's cheap and ... Cheap."

Behringer Xenyx 502
Mini-mixer 5 inputs (4 XLR TRS 1) + 2 TAPE inputs.
HI and LOW EQ on input 1.
TRS MAIN outputs in and TAPE CAR.


It is very easy to use given the limited functions.
The manual is clear and is common to the whole series XENYX.


As we listen not strong and that we not use the preamp it will still ... on the other hand, the sound crashes as soon as you turn up the volume and blast appears instantly! In short it is rotten but considering the price it's already amazing ...


I use it for a few days to troubleshoot the mixing of some synths ... Well I'll separate myself soon! More than the power connector is really crappy, the console may turn off when moved ...
Good 7 entries in so little space and the price is not bad. But the sound is c *** r!
Go your way.

See the website of Behringer, everything is there.


The connector cord is so badly screwed up that there are false contacts all the time and turn the mixer behringer s'teint and without asking for anything that he has been doing a horrible CLICK you screw up eardrums, followed by a deafening noise of mass. Do not have the misfortune to listen to the headset has arrived when ... It frankly is 0.


Basically, I bought the 502 for power XENYX bnficier a headphone amp that I'm not on my sound card (I put the mixer between my sound card and my speakers). It adds too little wind for me that has Drang. For cons, the microphone preamp and headphone amp make noise, but the price could not expect anything else.


So it's very simple, because of the problem of loose connection, I could not use it ... I tried to fix the cord with tape, but nothing ... So I changed the t cons another small Alesis MultiMix 4 which is not unplug itself. Too bad because the price is really great ...

Behringer Xenyx 502
How many lanes, bus attendant, of dparts, returns ...)? 2 inputs 2 RCA jacks 1 XLR jacks out a hand and a phones output What is the type of connectors (RCA, Jack, XLR ...)? Xlr - Rca - jacks


Configuration gnrale Is it easy? Very easy to ACCS on this point the, fun features common are they easily accessible? Likewise ... T he ​​manual is clear enough? ... I do not even have served ...


The console is transparent? Introduced Yes ... it's breath? A little when pushing it. The qualiseur is it effective? ... In this price, there is convincing


How long have you use it? Ending for 2 months What is the particular feature you like best and least? I like its size and price Have you tried many other models before the acqurir? Many non, but others yes =) How do you report qualitprix? The report price is excellent quality (49!) With the exprience, you do again this choice? ... It's dpend rsultat expected, I use to record the bass / guitar and vocals (as pre-amp above). And my level is not the "big" sound, but it is clean and tidy. Then I peus directly banch my instruments, there are enough of them (for my taste)

EDIT: 1 Year APRS, I opt for a model with more inputs and effects can be Intgr. This table is IDAL as "mixer" for hi-fi or PC, or small models

Behringer Xenyx 502
Characteristics, it shows on the image) if everything has been said above.


I never had to deal with mixing consoles, and it's really easy to use. It is a little cramped, but it will. The manual? Not watched.
All entries in the tables are taken! And it makes his job very well. I use it for Music, for recording and also a little background music for a few nights.


I think it is very transparent and introduces little breath. I use actually never equalizer that does little to nothing. The headphone induces a huge breath, for some reason?


I use it for a few weeks.
I love the price, I regretted the absence of on-off button and power LED's blinding.

I never tried other models

The value for money is very good

With experience, I gladly would look on Xenyx Tapco or on the competition.

Behringer Xenyx 502
Everything is on the site of Beringher, I will not go ...


Config simple manual as clear as useless given the simplicity of the machine!
It's a little tight but I wanted sth small so ...


Trs transparent, no breath.
The equalizer is useless, it's shit! at the same time I did not buy for a!


I got it yesterday, I use to mix my 2 my bass + synth on my guitar amp and even did his job perfectly.

Excellent price quality ratio, I would not slam my pay for her and, it is 50 euros nikel!

I do it again this choice without hsiter.

I start my opinion 7 months later.

- Is the rack?

- How many lanes, bus attendant, departures, returns ...)?
* 1 XENYX Mic Preamp
* 2-band EQ "British" neo-classical over Peak LEDs on mono channel
* Main mix outputs over headphones and CD / tape separated
* CD / tape inputs assignable to headphone output or main mix

- What is the type of connectors (RCA, Jack, XLR ...)?
1 XLR + jack with preamp so
2 lines separate stereo jack.
Main Out L / R headphone jack more (the only stereo jack of the table).

- The parametric equalizer is it?

- The effects section is it integrated? ...

Very small mixer, practical, not very strong at the knobs, however, or so, 7 / 10.


- The general configuration is it simple?
Easier, there's not.

- The usual functions are they easily accessible?
well, it's a bit cramped, but we cope as we can.

- The manual is clear and sufficient? ...
Behringer what "this button does this" point, must be said that is enough.

7 / 10 for the narrowness. (Would there were more space through the same knobs on a table of this size I think ...)


- The console is transparent?
Online, yeah not bad, I would not say transparent but ... I'm surprised, possessing a XENYX 802, I find her older sister more colors.
To be honest, I used this mixer to manage the sound of my sound card to my Yamaha HS50M.
Good on the other hand with the first tranche is a preamp and Equal forget ^ ^.

- Introduced she breath?
Yes, many of the first tranche, the rest is more or less clean.

- The equalizer is effective? ...
Can we really judge an equalizer on which we can not control the medium? ...

Clear: within reason, Yeah, do not compare to the stuff on its quality.
Noisy: it is not annoying, they are only signs, not the great bell ...
Equal ... a zapper.


- How long have you use it?
Seven months

- What is so special that you like most and least?
The size and price are the two advantages of this mixer.

- Have you tried many other models before buying it?
A few yeah.

- How would you rate the quality / price?
Very good.

- With experience, you do again this choice? ...
It all depends on the use: To a microphone, and lines on it, certainly not, but for my current use (mixer to manage my monitor speakers) .. yeah.

Finale's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Behringer Xenyx 502
Analog Mixer 5 Inputs, 2 Bus.
In the 5-channel spars are as follows:
-1 Between Jack or XLR (channel 1)
-2 Between Jack (Channel 2 / 3)
-2 Between Jack (Channel 4 / 5)

THE FIRST is among the most used and most complte. it contains:
The high-quality pramp XENYX (TRIM adjustable)
-The equalizer type "Columbia" (Rglage 'low' and 'high' on 2 pots)
-The main volume.
The other 2 entries contain only the volume and balance.

Obviously no effect for this console trs attractive price base.

OUT connector:
-Headphone Jack with volume knob assignbr />-RCA Output
Input-RCA (dvier possibility of the channel or on the Input Mix, either on the headphone, according trs useful)
-Master Volume 'Main Mix' seen with 4-LED mono nitre

Power supply.


Gnrale configuration could not be more simple, no installation problem.
The small size is trs apprcie because it offers a great practical advantage.
The great quality for the price is also apprcie trs. It is robust and reliable.
The few basic functions are intuitive.
The manual? I did not read. No need ...


The sound is good trs, rich and clear.
Console ULN Ultra Low Noise, no noise problem, but do not push the volume much ^ ^ sr
the equalizer does not find useful my eyes I prfre than Cubase.


I bought it this morning and I'm glad trs. I use the PC for my recordings and it's really great.
The big plus: Price, quality size.
The least: it would prfr 2 XLR inputs instead of 4 + 1 XLR stereo jack, and the console tends heat. In addition, no on / off switch.
This is my analog console Premire worthless compare those views France Musique 64 tracks but is ideal for use in semi-professional studio.
The report quality price (49) is excellent: the components are of high quality and robust construction parat. See you in 5 years ...
If I had to buy a console more, I will turn to the range XENYX no problem, unless I really need expensive hardware and trs Advanced. I am not often satisfied, I have almost nothing to say about this console.
