I bought this Xenyx Q502 for my laptop and video calling, and it's great. It's compact so sits well next to my laptop allowing plenty of room for camera stand and speakers. Installation doesn't present any problems, and the fact that it has a compressor (albeit basic) is fantastic.
As you may expect from Behringer, this little mixer is robust and sounds fine for what I bought it for. However, I do have a couple of small issues. Firstly, there are a couple of pads that allow you to send both the RCA inputs and the USB input to both the phones and main mix, which I found slightly confusing at first. If you have your mic on (there's phantom power too...nice touch!) coming through your cans, you will have the signal cut by pressing in the 'TO PHONES' pad. The 'MAIN MIX' pad I understand, but there is a designated phones pot, so I was scratching my head for a few minutes thinking 'why?' Again, can be a little confusing, but trial and error...
Secondly, the power switch...there isn't one! Dreadful design, otherwise I would have given it at least 4 starts for 'features.'
All said, if you want a little mixer, which is sturdy, reliable and will give you some flexibility before you go into the PC or laptop, you won't find a better deal. I've seen so many YouTubers using expensive audio interfaces just to do vlogs, and having bought this Q502, I keep thinking....why did they waste their money - this will do exactly the same job, and at a fraction of the price.
All in all, a very pleasing purchase.

For the price you can't complain.

EDIT: After about a year of use, the device stops transmitting In an Output signals at random moments. The only way for me to temporarily fix it is to Unplug and re-plug the device from the USB port. Happends maybe once a day. Currently looking for a Yamaha AG03 as a replacement.


Very compact all in one design for people who want to do entry level streaming-gaming sessions, sound boarding or instrumental jams.

For it's small size it does have a lot more features and options then you would expect from an USB interface for this price. including mirrored playback for 6mm jack Headphones, built-in 1 band compressor knob, and the ability to attach speakers for both L and R channels for playback

HOWEVER. I do not advice this mixer if you are looking to do some Voice-overs, audio productions or live audio mixing with it. The maximum bit rate is 16-bit in which it sends the signal to your device... which is.. not acceptable for serious professional use-cases.

ALL the knobs that have to do with the volume: GAIN, LEVEL, COMPRESSION and MAIN. Do not have a middle step to feel where the middle ground is. I Personally do not prefer this on my buttons, as I tend to play with the knobs while recording, to get a feel of where the volume resides, without looking at it the actual mixer.

As all Behringer Xenyx mixers do... it also has an incredible annoying hiss when you amp it up to the maximum through your computer. However If you turn it down to 50% so that there is no artificial boosting it is not noticeable. I have only had this problem with Behringer mixers so far.

Works as expected

Use it at home, to mix the guitar (via boss gt-1000) with Spotify, and listen via headphones. Great for playing silent at late hours, while still have tons of fun!
If it would break, I’d buy it again.

A cute little mixer
Archion 25.09.2021
I bought it as a more portable alternative to my more bulky Yamaha MG-10Xu and it works really well when viewed as such. Of course it doesn't have so many channels and features as the bigger unit mentioned before, but that should be expected when reading the description. The USB audio interface works quite well too. The only slight problem I have is that the sound of the main mix leaks slightly into the headphones when it shouldn't be sent there, but fortunately the computer audio doesn't leak to the opposite direction, so, it's quite ok!
