Good Starter Interface
D.J.S, 09.04.2020
The UM2 is a simple but effective interface that definitely does what you need to.

I had this coupled with an AT2020 and haven't had any issues with compatibility at all over the years. The only fault I could find was that if you raised your sound output to about 75% in the sound settings of your computer, you might find some static coming through your headphones/speakers. I tested this with my microphone unplugged so it's possible that Win10 might be argumentative at times.

Even with that, I can't fault it. It does what you need as a starter for any mic that needs phantom power and simple enough even for the newest of techies.

Perfect choice
AndSed, 15.10.2020
Really cool audio interface for its price. I've bought it to use with my laptop to record vocal and guitar. Everything is fine. Works perfectly with Adobe Audition CC. Recommend it.

Beginner
ckevar, 28.09.2020
Bought it because I read it's good for beginners, and this is my first audio interface.
It's compatible with ubuntu (plug-&-play) no need to install any driver. I use it with Jack2 and an electric guitar, the sound is clear but there's a bit of white noise in the background (acceptable).

[EDIT]: I start using as default interface for listening music in my regular days because the sound is way better than the build-in laptop audio. You can hear all the details of the music

I will start saying that my review is so good, because I considered price and my usage
Miguel Francisco, 13.08.2020
Indeed, I wanted something lightweight, straight forward that connect seemingly to my iPad and that I can put into any gig bag pocket. Also inexpensive since I will only use it for that purpose. At my home studio I have all pieces of gear I need. So this is for the moves. The built quality is okay and even good if we consider the price. It looks cool and it is very easy to use. Do not expect a professional full featured 192 KHz, great headroom, metal cased interface for this price :-) This is not intended for that and therefore it is far from that. But, if you need a noiseless 48 KHz, right sounding, lightweight, just ok headroom, inexpensive sound interface for mobile usage, just go for it. You will not regret. Just €33!

Light and made from plastic
JustinasK, 23.03.2019
Can't tell anything about sound or processing quality. I had to return mine because of the build quality - it is made of plastic and just doesn't feel right for heavier use outside your studio. Just 6 eur. more and you could get Behringer U-Phoria UMC22 from Thomann, which beats this one and is mostly the same USB-interface apart from the fact that it's made from metal all-around and is a huge quality step up.

Good for newbies
Gerner, 08.01.2019
I bought this as my entry to the recording world, to use with a recently purchased xlr mic. And to be honest, it has done its job very well! Now, of course you only get what you pay for, but i would still argue that its a pretty good value for your money. I dont have any experience with other audio interfaces, but as a starting interface, i would totally recommend it!

The best plan B
dbonet , 03.09.2020
So, i bought this Behringer because i was looking for a plan b interface, to go out and record in battle, so yeah, for the price you get a very nice quality and a very portable and handy interface. Very recommended.

great first interface for its price
JASO, 30.01.2020
I'm high school student. So I needed something cheap, yet good sounding. I can say that this interface will fulfil every thing starting musician need. As me, I use it with microphone(at2020) and guitar(Squier affinity Strat) and it sounds really good with them.
Overall, it's great first interface for its price!
pros:
+price
+sound
+easy to use
+no drivers needed

cons:
-build quality
-lack of inputs
-hard cable

Behringer UM2
Dan Morgan, 08.08.2020
Great interface!
Would recommend for condenser mics, and dynamic mics which don’t require much gain.
On Mac don’t be fouled in the audio settings, as it it says the device has no input controls, I was fooled by this, it does work, you just use the controls on the interface.

Good simple audio interface
Kevin9412, 25.05.2016
I have been using this USB microphone interface for quite some time and it has proven to be an excellent little piece of kit. I use this for streaming and VoIP communication in-game. It is essentially plug-and-play with Windows finding and installing drivers automatically, allowing this to work out of the box with all of my broadcast software. The gain and volume adjust allow for detailed control, as well as the direct monitor functioning adequately to allow for real-time monitoring of audio input for streaming, however the audio mix leaves something to be desired as the volume of this is quite low and requires tweaking in the OS to make use of. Overall, I have found that it has exceeded my expectations

Easy to use, simple to setup, comes with good software. Only downside is it's a little noisy with higher gain using phantom power.

Best budget USB interface?
06.05.2016
To be totally honest I'm finding it difficult to fault the Behringer. The build quality is solid and compact, the unit itself is tiny which is always a plus in this field. Especially when you're managing lots of kit in limited spaces. The interface is literally plug and play which bypasses an confusion for a beginner too which is a bonus!

The quality and clarity of the audio captured through it could easily be likened to a much more expensive interface. But when you consider this is a ¤39/£30 piece of kit the quality and features it boasts are astounding really. I did a lot of reading on interfaces prior to buying this one and I have to say for the price point I couldn't find a alternative that matched it's featured never mind bettering them. With phantom power, direct monitoring and clipping lights all at this price it's a no brainer really.

If this was to break I'd buy a replacement without a second thought. Lovely piece of kit for the musician on a budget.

Don't go with cheaper interfaces than this one
Silvio Jc., 05.05.2020
I use it for microphone XLR recording mostly, and in that capacity, it works fairly well. As a guitar interface, you'll have to fiddle a lot in ASIO to hit just the right noise to bitrate quality of the signal.
Pros: Viable solution for microphones
Cons: I'd avoid it as a guitar interface

Budget two channel audio interface
Sparky86, 13.09.2017
This unit allows you to connect a set of stereo studio monitors and record up to 2 audio tracks (stereo or two mono). Don't expect a super clean sound signal from this card but for the cost it's more than acceptable. Box feels cheap and delicate but the fact that it feels light makes it easy to carry around. In the end expect a cheap but fairly decent audio interface.

Good for guitar and bass recording
Devourment, 29.05.2017
I bought this little thing to record my guitar and bass directly to my computer. And it works well.

Pros:
1. Super cheap
2. Sounds okay
3. 48 v phantom power for condenser mics

Cons:
1. This audio interface doesn't have any MIDI in/out so you can't record your electric drumkit with it
2. Its made of lightweight plastic and don't look solid
3. Even with a minimal gain knob level sound signal of my Ibanez with active EMG pickups is too high, from -2 to 0 dB and sometimes I definitely hear distortion.

Good for the Money
30.01.2017
Unlike the amps and pa, the small Behringer stuff seems to be obviously built to a price in terms of controls,plastic casing and light weight. I would still recommend it for those on a budget as they do the job well enough.
