A few days in

I'v had this mixer a few days in already, i have it connected to my sound card via stereo (irrelevant: my sound card is also Behringer, the 204HD model).

First thing i want to highlight is don't expect to compare this to mixers in the 400-500? range, it's a cheap product for beginners/intermediate users.

The mic preamps seem fine for what you pay for, i still would rather use my sound card when recording. It does offer 48v phantom power, which is rare in the price category. The effects are okay nothing special. It's compact size is awesome for fitting it in your backpack and going for jam sessions, the size does come at a cost though, instead of faders for the channels you have level knobs which is okay but a little less accurate that faders. It does offer USB connectivity if you would like to use it as a sound card itself. The mic channels also have a compressor, not great but definitely useful when jamming with multiple instruments. The first downside i found was that is does not have rubber fits on the bottom for grip on your table top. This was a little annoying when someone accidentally stretches the cable plugged in, if not taken to account, it will easily slide over. This can be solved easily with velcro or rubber stoppers stuck to it. Sad that they did not think of this when making it.

All in all a great bang for the buck, if you're looking for extra inputs to your 2i2 setup (like i was) to plug a little more instruments and jam at the same time. I haven't used it via USB so i'm not sure if it supports multi-mix for your DAW via individual channels.

- Price tag must be highlighted 77?
- Perfect amount of inputs (2 mic/line and 2 stereo/mono inputs) capable of accommodating 4 instruments of all kinds.
- Heavy build for the price

- Not very stable on a table top setup, must be fixated using creativity/other equipment
- No faders

Would recommend this to noobs and people looking for cheap alternative to having more inputs.


The most complete of all the Q(X)xx02 range

Let's get the cons out first.

No on/off switch or integrated power supply
USB/2-track is single directional (either input or output your choice)
No low cut on the mic channels
Very few level indicators
No XLR outputs
No integrated FX
No levels on the USB/2-track

The above features would have made this a killer product BUT at a much higher price. TBH I would gladly have paid an extra 10-12Euros for a QX802USB that would have had FX, Low cut switch and master fader as the QX1002/1202

But what mattered to me most and what makes this mixer stand out from the rest of the Behringer line is the fact that this is the only mixer at this price point (along with the plain 802) that offers 3band EQs on the stereo channels as well. Compared to the plain 802 whose price is a steal this one also offers compressors on the mic channels and a USB interface.

And actually if you factor in the Stereo Aux/FX return you actually have 10 channels.

Quality-wise a huge weak point is the power supply coupling at the mixer side, pay extra attention when plugging and removing the power supply so as not to strain the solder connections on the board.


Not a bad little desk
Anonymous 04.05.2015
Bought this USB desk mainly to use as a USB interface!

It does work well and i guess overall i am pleased with it.

Bear in mind it does come with a 2 pin EU plug so those in the UK will need an adapter.

It's a little bit gutting in the fact the USB will only work one way at a time.
Therefore you cant record onto a multi-tracking system and listen to your live recording input and the tracks already on the software.

If you push down to listen to the USB then the recording stops,
So its either a record OR Listen desk - both do not work at the same time

Other then that its a great little compact desk,
Recording quality and general sound quality is pretty good.

I would recommend this for basic recording but not so much if you want to multi track record


An excellent small USB mixer which works under Linux
Anonymous 20.03.2015
I bought this mixer based on my past experiences with Behringer who offer great quality at an affordable price.

I was after a small USB mixer which would allow me to record from a digital piano, electric guitar (via stereo effects unit) and a phantom powered XLR microphone. The Q802USB was an excellent choice with a few spare inputs.

When connected to my desktop PC it's connected to a microphone on channel 1, a guitar effects unit on channel 3 and 4 and a digital piano on channel 5/6 leaving a spare mono input on channel 2 and a stereo input on channel 7/8 (without mixing knobs).

When I want to record elsewhere it's compact enough to move around easily allowing me to record from a guitar effects unit in other rooms on my laptop.

The Q802USB works perfectly both under Windows, recording in Rosegarden, I have also tested it under Linux (Mint 17) on my laptop, connected via Jack2 and recording in Rosegarden and Ardour.

I like the headphones amp on the Q802USB as the headphones out on my guitar effects pedal is so quite that it's barely usable, when jamming in silence I can connect the effects pedal to the Q802USB and use the headphones socket on the mixer allowing me to adjust the volume to my liking.

My only issue with the Q802USB is that it has hard feet rather than rubberized feet (which I will be adding via sticky back rubber pads), when the mixer is placed on a hard surface such as a desk it is prone to sliding around should a cable be tugged or when you try to adjust the dials.

Overall I think this is a great small USB mixer which works well under Windows and Linux (and most likely Mac, although untested by myself), it offers a great range of inputs and outputs to suite most hobbyist home recording, phantom power to get the most out of a condenser microphone in a compact package.
