Be careful!
20.10.2016
It is a very good audio interface.I like to record with it, good quality sound and I love the direct monitoring without any latency. It is awsome that I can use XLR and 1/4 cable to connect instruments and microphones.

But be careful! With MAC you need no driver but with WINDOWS you do. You don't receive a CD with the driver so you have to download it from internet. The problem is that there is no driver for WINDOWS 7 64bits! Really Behringer?
If you contact them they will send you a link to download an uncertified beta driver that will be stopped by the OS because Windows 7 64 bits allow just certified driver to be installed.You can solve this problem by certifing it by yourself but this process its not for everyone.It took me a while to get it done.So Windows 7 64bits users be careful to this.This is the only con, but its a big one.

Concerning other things I like everything about it.I like the fact that I can use it instead of an amplifier for my guitars and then connect headphones or an audio sistem.

---------------------------
There is now official driver for Windows 7 to Windows 10 available at http://www.music-group.com/Categories/Behringer/Computer-Audio/Audio-Interfaces/UMC202HD/p/P0BJZ/downloads

Awesome
d_Marchi, 14.01.2019
I bought this interface to use for my band recordings. We already have a mixer containing enough channels and for this reason I just need 2 channels on the interface, cause in this way it's possible to record stereo using the main output of the mixer. Although this is the main plane, I'd like to use this device to personal recordings, like bass guitar or guitar and voice directly on the interface input.
For the first impression I need to say that this interface is really interesting, and for this price, I thing it wouldn't be possible to find something better. We have 24 bits, 2 channels, which fits very good to my situation and I'm very satisfied with the Midas preamp performance as well. Besides that, the headphone amp is really good and I hope you can enjoy this interface like me.
I use windows and I didn't have any problem to download and install the drivers, everything is fine. I highly recommend!

Affordabe and great
Dapapa, 20.12.2018
I needed an interface with two Line Ins for recording my keybaord and to be able to mic my guitar amp with two microphones.

This interface delivers good sound and very low noise (no noise at all if you set the Gain levels right)

One thing I have to complain about; when using only one Line input I get sound only out of one side of my headphones! Which side of the headphone depends which Line In Im using! Would be great if Behringer added a MONO switch to this box as the UCM204HD has it! Any way, I will keep this one as I bought it for recording stuff in Stereo. For Mono I still can use my old U-Phoria UM2 (another great box by Behringer which served me well for 4 years now and still going strong)

Vhic, 22.01.2019
I am a biggener on recording and because of its ease of use it helps me a lot to learn and explore things on recording

Pros
Easy to use
Lots of features
High sample rates
Pads
Direct monitoring
Build quality
Price

Cons:
Headphone Will produce shhhh sound when turn all the way up. But you don?t need to and it doesnt affects your recorded audio or sample.

Highly recommended for the price, quality and lots of features. I recommend to use monitor speakers. But headphones is also fine you don?t need too up the volume full because the sound is already loud. I only used almost half the volume.

Cheaper than ever
Thrashmaniac, 16.04.2019
With a great and solid metal construction this usb interface is perfect for an home studio recording. The Midas pre-amp are pretty good and the sound quality is stunning for the price. Great product.

can't be beaten for the price
Harry345, 24.02.2019
For this price point you can't get a better audio interface. The build quality is good, the whole casing is metal and it feels solid. The knobs and buttons have a nice resistance to them. The inputs have a button so you can switch to Hi-Z impedance so you can plug in a guitar or bass which is what I'm using it for, and it sounds good. Not much bad to say about this interface.

Great
nioz, 20.04.2019
I was looking for something not very expensive and with decent quality and to be honest, I did not expect this quality for a cheap interface.
I use it mainly to record at home and I couldn't ask for more.
I do not see any problems it is doing its job.
If you are looking for a small and cheap device to home-record it is the best option.

Good racio cost/benefit
22.12.2016
It is a good quality product, the sound is perfect, has a good ratio cost/benefit, and the finish is a strong metal box.

I use it for record my guitar amp and have nothing to complain about it. For the price I do not find any bad points.

You have to be careful about one thing. If the product falls on the floor it can be expensive. Get the floor fixed.

Perfect for home use
Pita, 16.01.2019
I use this for daily practicing and recording (amateur level).
Works really well with anything I plug into it - no complaints there.
No hiss, weird sounds or anything, crystal clear sound quality.
With this interface I was able to reach 2,5ms latency on 4-year old cheap laptop without any glitches.
The build quality seems very nice and the XLR/jack inputs won't break for a long time.

Perfect for the home studio
Chilly-Dilly, 12.04.2017
I bought this interface mainly because my old Line 6 UX2 broke and I needed something cheap to hold me over until I could afford something better. Once it arrived, however, I was so amazed by the quality that I didn't feel like I would need to upgrade it any time soon!

Pros:

Multiple types of input (XLR, TRS & 1/4")
Pad on each channel
Phantom Power
Midas Preamps
Direct Monitoring (very helpful when DAW has latency issues)

Cons:
Only one headphone output
No Midi capabilities

As you can see, the pros vastly outweigh the cons, and at the price, I never would've thought that possible. Thank you Behringer and thank you Thomann!

UhhhmmC202HD
TimValencia, 17.07.2017
The UMC202HD arrived approximately 5 days after I have ordered it online. Right out of the box it came with a quick installation manual. I connected it, installed the driver and started my recording software (I use Reaper). Worked absolutely fine from the get go. I mostly use the device with my Gretsch guitar and with my AKG microphone. With y setup I have little to none output lag when both channels are in use.

The build quality is great. The outer shell is made of metal and all the pots and knobs are very robust. This thing could take a beating.

Thomann?s service was, as usual, impeccable.

I can highly recommend this device.

Great for a beginner home studio.
Aurelian, 23.09.2017
Bought this to use it with elctric guitars. The overall quality of the product is great, but lack o support from behringer.
Pros:
Free DAW software from 'their' site
Midas preamps
line and instrument switches
Very sturdy and well built
Feels like a tank looks like a Mercedes
Direct monitoring
Good knobs that dont wooble around.
Cons:
Drivers need to be dowloaded from the site, Windows 10 didnt install them.

I would recomend this to anyone, its good and cheap, wont find anything better to start with.

Fantastic
whskyrcknrlla, 31.07.2017
I use it for recording my zoom g3x, J Station and as an interface for revalver.

It has all the features you need.
Dual purpose inputs for 1/4 jack and mic.
Direct monitor.
Clip light.
Pad function.

Sounds great, better than my uca222 and the usb out on my zoom.

And latency is no longer an issue for me, I tried the alesis guitar link and I always had latency issues with it.

Great for the money!
lovrenzoo, 17.10.2018
This interface has really been serving me well for past few months. I use it as a preamp for my headphones, as well as to record music. It feels very solid and I would say that it's even on pair with Focusrite Scarlett. Sound is mostly good as well, the only thing that kinda sucks is the fact that it distorts sometimes when I plug my guitar directly into the line in, even though it's not really clipping. I dont know why is this happening, but im sure that a DI box can fix it.

You won't find something better in the price range
Andgoca, 06.10.2018
The truth is, this audio interface works really good. You will have to deal with a noisy headphones channel at high volumes but it isn't something that cripples the functionality of the device. I would recommend this audio interface for those who have a small home recording project and wish for something better than the cheapest. The recording quality is perfectly fine for this purpose and even for something a little more serious. Don't expect something amazing because it isn't, but like I said on the title, you won't get something better for this price.

Does what it's supposed to.
01.04.2017
Easy installation and everything worked as expected. I had a little trouble getting the levels right in terms of the 'pad' switch and input gains, moreso than on other units I have owned, but this was easily learned. Some nice plugins from the Behringer website, too. Documentation could possibly be a little better. Generally great, though, especially for the price.

A good job
Snikel8, 20.09.2017
I am no producer but to keep track of your evolution in the rehersal room, it seriously does its job!We all know what Behringer stands for...cheap electronics...this time though, nailed it.Very easy to use, captures many frequencies very clearly and overall has a good volume.To record all the jams with awesome riffs that you?ll forget in 30 seconds combine it to a relatively good microphone and there you have it!

Not bad but the quality is must be better
17.03.2017
Everything is fine, exept the line in quality. The anps is too noisy to me. My old pci M-audio soundcard makes more quality record.
By the way the build and services are excellent.

Cheap interface for limited usage
Whip, 27.08.2017
Bought this for a temporary solution, it did its job well enough but everything about it says "cheapest you can get". Wouldn't probably last very long doing shows. I was more than happy to get rid of it when I came across what I was originally looking for.

Liked: Enough connections for its price. Drivers are ok. Speaker outputs sounded ok through a PA system.

Didn't like: Makes snaps and pops when powering on. Very plastic knobs and connectors. Hissy headphone amp.

Better than Scarlett
04.03.2017
You pay only 66 euro, but you get a quality whis is worth about 200 euro. I tried Scarlett 2i2 2nd gen and this one Behringer is far better because of its stable drivers, handling convenience and really simple usage. If you look for high-quality recording hardware, but you're on a tight budget - this one os your best option!

Good thing I bought it
Leo55, 11.04.2017
I was having lots of doubts, should I buy the behringer interface or a more popular and expensive one. I took a chance on it and don't regret it at all.
I very much like the sound, its well built, and has some functions that you only get on much more expensive AIs.
Great product at a fraction of the price. Way to go behringer, stepping up your game.

Home recording studio
03.06.2016
I bought UMC202HD USB audio interface for my small home studio for recordings of my saz. And I'm gonna try to be short as possible in this feedback.
First of all its 24bit 192kHz interface so the sound quality is more then awesome for home recordings, it has 48V phantom power supply and sound from my cheap condenser microphone (BM 800) got so much better.
Second I love the matt finish !!! No fingerprint at all.
It has a pad switch for both inputs, and it's great, also direct monitoring witch is awesome.
And for the last the ting that i most love above everting else is the headphone 1/4 jack with dedicated volume knob, simply loving it.
For this price you not gonna be able to find a better audio interface, trust me.
