    Building Personal Sound Equipment

    As with all of my purchases, this Behringer Xenyx 802 Mixer is as good as advertised and came with the support and expertise of Sweetwater's fantastic staff. Coming to this focus later in life, Jonathan Appleton was fantastic with his suggestions. Trying to build a system in which I can use in-ear monitors turned out to be a much more complicated design. This mixer provides the ability to not only hear my guitar, but also my vocals. Thank's Jonathan Appleton!

    The solution to monitoring backing track levels

    As a band, we run a certain amount of backing tracks during a performance and monitor both the click and backing track sends with our in-ear monitors. More often than desired, the levels and EQ of the sends from the house mixing console eventually get set out of whack, however inadvertently by the operator. I decided to remove the house console and operator from the equation and take control myself. Enter the Behringer Xenyx 802 Mixer. It's lightweight, compact and just the ideal piece of equipment to do the job. At the selling price point, it's well worth it; not to mention the peace of mind of having control of the backing track sends to my in-ears in place of the house console.

    Nice product, outstanding service!

    The first unit I purchased was defective, so I spoke with my man Tyler and within three days I had a new unit and the defective unit was back in Indiana. I can't say enough good things about Tyler and the tech support staff. Outstanding work guys! Thank you so much

    Behringer 802

    Compact, quality mixer at a price that cannot be beat. Mics sound terrific and EQ is excellent. If you don't require many inputs, you will be hard pressed to hear the difference between this and more expensive units.

    Sweetwater is the best. Have made so many purchases from them and never an issue. Service is fast, personalized and they keep their promises. This mixer is just great and does everything it advertises.
    I won't shop anywhere else.

    Thanks again Sweetwater for another great deal!

    Why buy a DI when this does the job and more?

    Preamps your signal, and sends it out (BALANCED) in a variety of ways. Not sure why anyone would buy a powered DI over this. Same footprint too....

    Just What I Needed

    I'm digging this mixer had mixers before but it does exactly what I want (MONIITOR)!!!! I read the reviews some good some bad. I do see what people mean about the power cord, but I keep my mixer in one spot, if you move around a lot may not not fit you. All in all I send my interface output in here to get a louder sound out of the speakers,!!! Analog/ITB.. :)

    Behringer 802

    I bought the 802 mainly to drive a mic , or for the mic preamp, i am a ham radio operator. I hooked it up with 1/4' mono plugs instead of the xlr plugs , i instantantly received great audio reports and was told to (nail it down) or dont adjust anything. I have all the adjustments in the middle, so i would have to say i am well pleased. excellent customer service & would buy here again. Thanks Don

  • from Cedarburg, WI. May 2, 2016

    Behringer 802

    This piece is just what I needed. It works great and has all features as advertised. The only negative I have found is the very sketchy power plug that has a tendency to come loose. Not a very positive hookup and should be revised to be more secure. Other than that it is a really clean piece of gear.

  • from February 17, 2016

    Nice little Mixer

    So far I'm pretty happy with this little mixer. I use it to bring my guitar and keys and even harp together on my smaller, single input, Roland amp to avoid carrying my heavier, mulitple input amp to gigs. Nice sound for the price and so far, it's working great!

  • from December 14, 2015

    Behringer 802

    I plugged my Shure SM58 mic to the Xenyx 802 and lined it out to a powered mixed( not a branded one) i must say.Kept the eq flat on the powered mixed and used then eq on the Xenyx 802. The sound is awesome.Best value for money.

  • from Roseburg, OR December 11, 2015Music Background:

    Perfect for my needs

    I use this with my IEMs. I get the house mix, a separate vocal mix, and my click track or metronome and have complete control.

  • from Western PA November 20, 2015

    Just what I needed

    I bought this mixer because I needed to combine inputs from two keyboards, a PC, and a reverb unit. I think it's a great value. I've had mine for several years, and it's given me no trouble. When I reviewed another product and saw that I had never reviewed this, I thought it only fair that I did so.

  • from New England November 3, 2015Music Background:

    Rock solid, easy-to-use mixer!

    The Behringer Xenyx 802 is a high-quality little 4-channel mixer that will do everything the more expensive ones will do if you want to record your music. I don't use it for live performances, but hooked up to my Behringer UCA222 and Macbook Pro (using Logic Pro), it helps me produce multi-track recordings of my music as good as any professional recording artist out there. I'm not bragging about me - I'm bragging about this mixer. I've used it constantly for two years and it does everything I would expect from a much more expensive mixer. I've been tempted at times to purchase a more expensive mixer (USB, on-board EQ, "more knobs!") but there really is no reason for me to. Unless you are a top professionally recording artist, this mixer is all you need for home recording. You'll love it!

    pure clean sound

    Really enjoying this mixer as it is a must have for my YAMAHA music keyboard.I like to play along with other music such as my ROKU stick and internet music channels. I also pluged in a BLUETOOTH receiver to this mixer. Has a well built feel to the controls and is the best bang for the buck in any brand in the market. Output is strong and clean as it gets and i'm useing the PEAVY cube speaker that outputs quite clear sound and is more than enough for my apartment any more and I would get the boot out of there.

    Great MIxer

    I have had this mixer for a few years now and it still works perfectly. I love how simplistic it is to use. The 3 band EQ works perfectly. If this mixer stopped working, I would go out and by the exact same one. This is a very durable and reliable mixer.

  • from Peabody, MA May 21, 2014Music Background:

    Simple mixer

    Not a bad little mixer for the money, but don't expect high quality if you have come to expect that in your sound. I recently went from using a Yamaha MG mixer to one of these because I needed just something small for home. I was surprised by the drop in audio quality going from a higher end sounding Yamaha to this. The tones it replicates to my monitors sound a bit plastic and cheap, makes my piano sound like a toy and when pushed it definitely crackles at the higher volumes and gains. That being said, this is a great cheap mixer for basic applications, you can't go wrong with the price and Sweetwater is the best so you may even call them and get the right suggestion on what mixer works best for you.

    Very versatile and a perfect match for my instrumentation for worship service. I am amazed that I could purchase such a quality product for such a low price. My hats off to Sweetwater once again.

  • from February 11, 2014Music Background:


    I got this mixer to run my high schools open mic nights and it did the job perfectly. Its really handy for small events where you have to work with limited gear and small acts, and its a great mixer for anyone just starting out. the only thing that was sort of a bother is that since its small the outputs are 1/4 inch and i needed to get 1/4 to XLR adapters to hook it up to the pa's.

  • from Moneta, Va January 7, 2014Music Background:

    Great product at a great price

    I bought the behringer to help me with the volume of the click. I play our songs from my iPhone into a y cable and the click track goes to this behringer. The volume is amazing. Before I would have a problem as I used an S Monitor only for my click track but the volume did not drown out the band like I needed it to. I tend to get into the song and speed it up faster than the speed it's supposed to be. But with this behringer I can turn the volume up only halfway and the click is loud enough for me to focus on it and not the band. It is a great product and for the price I believe you are getting more than what you pay for. I would strongly recommend this product!

    Fabulous little mini mixer

    I provide sound systems for meetings and parties, and dub tapes and LP discs to my computer.

    I have several behringer devices, this is one of my favorites.

    When I have a simple set-up, I bring the 802 rather than my big mixer board. The 802 has all the sound quality and most of the controls of the big boys. Really handy that it provides phantom power to my MXL condenser mics. For a really complex set-up, I use the 802 to feed remote mics or sound take-offs to my main mixer, or to add more channels to my main mix. Sometimes I have to make a mix-minus feed to headphone amps, or to feed media take-offs, again the 802 is the perfect accessory.

    For the home recording enthusiast, this is a great way to start: A pair of Condenser Mics and the 802 are an unbeatable set-up. Great also for voice-over recording and dubbing.

    Connect it to the sound card input or use Behringer's very good analog to digital USB converter to feed your sound recording app. The free Audacity software is extremely flexible.

    I been using this same set-up for dubbing my hundreds of LP's and reel-to-reel tapes. The 802 gives me control of gain and basic EQ before I do the finishing work in Audacity.

    The sound quality of the 802 is extraordinary. It's internal circuits are the same as their bigger mixers. Noise level and distortion are extremely low, better than some of the big expensive mixers.

    I have had my 802 for several years, if I were buying it today, I would purchase the 802X which has a built in USB Digital converter.

    Watch out for the power connector

    The S video type A/C connector on the back of the mixer is flimsy and loose. It tends to disconnect with the slightest jostling...not good for a portable mixer. We had to tape the connector to the mixer to avoid unwanted power loss.

  • from Spokane, WA August 21, 2013Music Background:

    Could be worse

    You get what you pay for, and you're not going to get great sound out of this unit. The preamps are very bad for music (noisy and inconsistent,) you really have to set levels by ear, and when it clips, it does so in an especially unmusical way. Also on the 'against' column: there's a blindingly bright LED right next to the main meter, so indoors, it's actually kinda difficult to look at - for real, if you're keeping this in your bedroom, you'll need to cover it with something at night. It's that bright, and I have no idea why.
    I'd be comfortable saying that any of the mixers you can get for twice the price are at least twice as good. But, hey - if you need a mixer, this is one. It's a lot better than having no mixer at all, and as the absolute bottom of the price scale, it could be a lot worse. The EQs and the effects loop are totally usable, as long as you aren't expecting pristine-sounding music recordings. The routing options are totally adequate, too: I/O to tape, control room/phones and a main out. Mine has held up to frequent use during practices for the last 2 years, without getting any worse. If this is the only mixer that fits your budget, then buy with confidence.

    Behringer Xenyx 802 - Perfect fit for my Home Theater System.

    I just love the Low-Mid-High British Equalizers in both the Stereo and Mic Inputs of these units. I had bought 3 units already and I plan to buy one more for my Home Thearter Setup. It's the best I ever had for music reproduction. It's so simple and the tonal quality is just perfect, excellent. I normally use graphic equalizers for this purpose but now I junked them all. Believe me, try it and you will be surprised and the price? the best, too.

    Bheringer 802 - Great Buy

    Great little mixer. Use it on my desktop with two Rokit 5 speakers to play backing tracks while I'll practive guitar. I use a foot pedal to add some reverb and pitch correction and run it all thru the mixer. I use the headphones output too. The price is great too. Nothing negative about it.

    Little Mixer

    This little mixer is exactly what I needed to start digitizing my collection of albums and a few cassette tapes. Just the right size and number of channels to fit on my desk twixt my receiver & turntable then over to my computer. It's gonna be a long process, but this mixer has the features I needed to make records sound great going into iTunes and external storage for good. Also good way to record youngsters with mike imputs.

    Behringer Xenyx 802 as Studio Mixer

    As I am setting up a small home studio for my self and friends, being on a limited budget as most musicians can be. I wanted more than just 1 or 2 inputs so I talked with the amazing folks at Sweetwater and chose the Behringer Xenyx 802 and found it the perfect unit for my studio. I play guitar,bass and 5-string banjo etc. so I can keep all plugged in along with my drum machine and can quickly switch from one to another without unplugging and plugging in. I have it thru my line in port on my sound card and the clarity of input is undaunting. The price was as amazing as the quality and ease of use. I feel like a big time studio Mogul now and all thanks goes to you all at Sweetwater. Thanks for treating my small purchases as if I was spending a million. You guys are TOPS !!

    Mini mixer with a funky power supply.

    The mixer works well for what it is meant to be - a mini mix. The problem comes in when an over zealous sound tech stomps around the equipment and pulls the power supply out the back of the rack. This proprietary end of the cable is not found at a local electronics shop, and the only available replacement for the PS online costs more than half of the replacement cost.

    How I added reverb to my church organ with the Xenyx 802

    I talked with Phil Schwan on the phone about adding reverb to my old
    Baldwin church organ. The organ has four channels and I knew little
    about mixers, so he explained that I could take the Behringer Xenyx 802 which is a 4 channel mixer and mix the 4 channels down to 1 channel, send it through the reverb (Alesis NanoVerb Unit) and then
    back through the organ amplifier and I would have reverb as well as other effects possible with the Alesis unit. It works Great!

    You get what you (don't) pay for

    I don't mean to knock the product that hard, it's just that I've purchased 3 units... and twice I've had the little prongs of the AC male jack (resembles a 5-pin mini MIDI cable) break off inside the female jack, rendering the entire unit useless. On a separate occasion, one of the pins broke off, but it was able to be replaced.

    The sound is decent.

    A decent little mixer/preamp.

    I bought this to act as a mixer/preamp between a Korg Kronos and a pair of near-field studio monitors. It does a very nice job, very quiet and reliable. I would recommend it for dedicated applications such as this so that one need not tie up a studio mixing console for things like composition sessions. It could also serve as an inexpensive introductory mixer for a student, although the number of channels is very limiting in that scenario.
