Premium 8-Input 2-Bus Mixer with XENYX Mic Preamps and British EQs
Got a solo gig at the local coffee shop? Need to make a quick public announcement? Simple sound calls for the simply superb XENYX 802, the BEHRINGER mixer with everything you need to give an intimate setting incredible sound. The ultra-compact XENYX 802 mixer’s 8 Inputs (2 mic, 2 stereo + Aux Returns) allow you to effortlessly achieve premium-quality sound, thanks to the 2 studio-grade, phantom-powered XENYX Mic Preamps and ultra-musical “British” channel EQ.
Sonically Superior Mic Preamps
All XENYX mixers have one thing in common – great-sounding, high headroom XENYX mic preamps. These state-of-the-art mic pres represent a major step in the evolution of audio technology – and they can easily hold their own, even when compared to the most expensive stand-alone mic preamps. XENYX preamps offer a staggering 130 dB of dynamic range, with a bandwidth that extends from below 10 Hz to well above 200 kHz. Armed with these outstanding mic preamps, XENYX mixers provide such transparent, crystal-clear performance you just might think someone upgraded your mics while you weren’t looking.
Sublimely Musical British EQ
The British consoles of the 1960s and ‘70s changed the sound of rock and roll – without them the British Invasion might not have happened. Those legendary mixing desks soon became the envy of engineers and producers all over the world. The channel EQ on our XENYX mixers is based on that very same circuitry, allowing you to imbue signals with incredible warmth and detailed musical character. Even when applied generously, these equalizers exhibit sweet forgiveness and superb audio quality.
No matter what your audio mixing needs, the XENYX 802 provides the performance and features that can take your talent to the next level, at a price sure to amaze you. Professional sound quality, our legendary XENYX mic preamps, British-style EQs and rugged reliability make XENYX 802 ideal for both your live gigs and recording. Try one on today – we have one available in your size!
The Ins and Outs

You can use the XENYX 802’s Eff ects Send and Return jacks for connecting to external effects, and the built-in RCA CD/Tape Inputs (main mix or control room/phones assignable) and Outputs let you play music between sets, and record your performance to outboard recording gear, respectively.

Top Customer Reviews
I jacked it into an old surround sound amp I bought cheap, and the other jack set goes to my HD line in on my computer. It makes it nice because I can treat it as practice and actually hear what I am recording as it sounds in the room.
I wanted to improve the sound quality of voice overs and narrations for videos I am editing, such as product reviews and tutorials.
I wanted the three-band equalizers and at least 2 XLR jacks, which this was the smallest one that met those conditions.
This one gets 5 stars. It seems to be well built and I have no complaints here.
This thing performs as expected. If you're connecting microphones via the phono jacks, they MUST be independently powered. In other words, if you're connecting a lapel mic or something via the 1/4-in jack, the mixer will not provide power to it.
The main thing that seems to determine the quality of your audio is the microphone you attach to it. I followed another reviewer's advice and bought the Behringer XM8500 mic along with this and I must say, "WOW". I don't know much about microphones, but the XM8500 does a great job at suppressing ambient noise and delivering great quality audio, especially when combined with this mixer.
For the tech geeks, this mixer uses 4558 op amps, which aren't the best at being the quietest op amps, but considering the price range of this product, it makes sense they would use it. Each audio signal does go through multiple 4558 op amps, so that will have some impact, although I think it's very insignificant. But that depends on the application I suppose.
*The Power Jack*
Many people have fussed about the odd connector for the power adapter, but it makes sense. The AC adapter provides +18V & -18V, necessary for dual rail power supply to the op amps. So it has to have a 3-pin power connection, leaving the standard barrel plug not an option. I didn't have the issue with it being loose, which could mean Behringer has fixed this issue or I just happened to have gotten a good build. So I have no complaints with this part, especially considering why it's necessary.
*NO POWER SWITCH!*
Ok, this is a BIG negative and the reason I gave it only 4 stars (almost 3). Why the heck does it not have a simple on/off power switch? The only way to turn it off is by unplugging it, which I don't really want to do at the mixer since I don't want to wear the plug out and make it loose. Seriously, who thought leaving this off was a good idea? The right upper side of this gets pretty warm due to the AC-to-DC power conversion, so I don't like leaving this on when not in use. I don't think it's necessarily a safety issue, but I see it as being something that will decrease the life of this mixer. That's just my speculation anyways.
Over all, this is a great mixer, especially for a beginner. I wish there was a way to make it more portable, such as power it via batteries, but no such luck here. The size is rather small, smaller than I was thinking it would be, so that makes it easy to store and takes up less space on your desk. I would definitely recommend this and it's a great deal at this price range.
The power cable uses a DIN connector like what computer keyboards used to use before they switched over to USB. However, those connectors worked just great. These connectors have pins that are very short so there is not much surface area for anything to grab onto. The back and forth wobble of this connector was flat out amazing. At first I thought it might be just a couple of loose mounting screws that maybe needed tightening but after a visual inspection I came to the conclusion. "Nope, just an extremely poor design". Very disappointed.
So this thing worked great and just as expected. Below is how I have it hooked up and it is working great. Using stuff I already had, I was able to meet the party demands of my son.
I have two microphones connected to the microphone inputs.These are SingStar microphones connected to 6.3mm (1/4 inch) to 3.5 mm Male to Female Stereo Adapters.
I have a Roku 2 connected to one of the inputs. We bought the Karaoke Party on Demand channel which fulfilled the Karaoke. I used a 3.5 mm TRS to Dual 1/4 in TS ten foot cable to connect the Roku to the mixer. We also used the Roku for Pandora for the dance part of the party.
I have the PS3 connected to another input using the PS3s RCA audio outputs and RCA to 1/4 adapters. This is for SingStar.
I connect the master output to the Lepai amplifer and speakers.
And for a little extra bass, I connect the head phone output to a set of computer speakers with an external sub woofer.
Plenty loud and easy to use.
One thing I personally was a bit disappointed by is the fact that pressing the 2-TR TO CTRL ROOM button *only* plays the 2-track input through the headphones, it doesn't mix that input with what you're already hearing through the headphones. (It's basically a "solo" button for the 2-TR input.) I understand why this is, but it wasn't quite what I was hoping for.
I wanted to be able to record vocals on top of a prerecorded backing track and hear both my voice and the backing track through my headphones, while only recording the vocals on my computer (so I could apply effects to them in post without affecting the backing track). That doesn't quite work on this mixer, since sending the 2-track input to the control room mutes my voice in the headphone mix, and sending the 2-track input to the main mix results in it being mixed into my recording. I ended up having to buying a dedicated audio interface, the Behringer UCA202, which does have that capability.
