Behringer XENYX 502 Mixer 5-Input 2-Bus
Behringer XENYX 502 Mixer 5-Input 2-Bus is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good things CAN come in a small packageI added the Xynex 502 mixer to provide a few more inputs for my line level ham radio audio processing equipment. My main mixer is a Mackie 1202VLZ3. I've also used a Behringer Eurorack MX802 for many years. The 502 provides basic, transparent audio connectivity with no added hum or noise. Although I have several other mic input options with 48V phantom power, I was curious to see whether the lower 15V provided by the 502 would power my Audio Technica AT 2035 condenser microphone. I also plugged in a Cloudlifter CL-1 and MXL-R144 ribbon mic to see if that worked OK. The CL-1 preamp needs the phantom power and does not pass it through to the mic to protect the delicate ribbon element. The 15V does power these and provides an audio signal, but I can't verify that the dynamic range or frequency response is the same when using 48V. With the AT-2035 condenser mic the volume, audible noise level, and clarity were comparable to the signal going into the Mackie. The MXL ribbon with Cloudlifter had significantly less punch, less gain and a bit more noise through the 502.Otherwise, the audio quality is comparable to the bigger Eurorack Behringer mixer I've used. To my ear the Mackie has a cleaner sound. The manual that comes with the mixer is the typical sketchy Behringer detail that may not be too helpful for the novice user. Regardless of which mixer is used hum, noise, feedback and poor audio quality are a function of user experience and quality of the entire audio chain. Mixers - and other audio equipment - are sometimes not plug and play and can provide a few headaches along with your audio. If you need only one XLR mono input and two stereo channels this is a nice little mixer. If you need a full 48V phantom power or more connection flexibility go with the XYNEX 802 or larger mixer. The 5 stars reflects the overall quality of the item. Although limited in features and connectivity it operates as advertised.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Would have given a '5' for features...but...For the most part I like this mixer, but have sent it back and will be getting the 802 instead. This unit does not have 48 volt phantom power as is other words, a no go for condenser mics. My only other gripe is that there is no power switch of any kind...other than you unplugging it from the wall...and while its on, dont expect to be able to read some of the adjustments becuase the blue power LED is pretty blinding.....

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice, simple, low noiseI use this with a microphone, iPod and multipurpose PA system at school. It does the job nicely and is quiet. The EQ controls are simple and adequate.

Does the Xenyx 502 sold presently come with the phantom power?

Hi, Someone ask almost 2 years ago if P-E was selling the 502 with Phantom power and he was replied no at the time. Is that still the case or does the units available come with this phantom power. I would like to use it with a Dayton EMM-6 mic. Thanks
Asked by: Claude
Yes the new 502 model does supply Phantom power.

What is this unit powered from? Wall-Wart? What Voltage input? Can I use it in a mobile 12V application?

Asked by: Captain
These are powered with a wall-wart type power supply, however it uses a proprietary plug and only the Behringer power supplies fit it.

My box says it has phantom power, does it have it?

I did not find a phantom power switch or control, is this automatic? I'm using this with a dayton mic and e-mu 1212m will this combo work? I'm using this for audio measurements of a room.
Asked by: Laserman35
I've looked over the manual. The 802 has a phantom switch but cant see any phantom on the 502. Unless it's always on, which I doubt. Could it be on the power supply? They dont cover this section well. Try out a condenser (phantom powered) mic and see. Just make sure the unit is off when you hook up your mic.
