Sonically Superior Mic Preamp
The XENYX 302USB gets its name from our legendary, high headroom XENYX mic preamps, which have been praised by audio engineers all over the world. 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 off er 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, the XENYX 302USB provides 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.
There was a time when the recording process called for lots and lots of expensive gear, which meant the average musician had to buy time at a recording studio – and that time was pricey indeed. But modern technology has put personal recording well within the reach of virtually anyone with access to a computer.
How do you get all that music flying around your brain into your computer? That’s where the XENYX 302USB mixer comes in. Thanks to the included bidirectional stereo USB audio interface, you can connect directly to your PC or Mac computer via a single USB cable.
Now any signal source you connect to the mixer can be recorded directly to your hard drive. Which brings us to software…

I play a WW2 flight simulator. In the game I am able to talk to my wingman and him to me.
Without sidetone, with my headset on (and me only able to hear game sounds and other pilots speaking - my own voice being very muffled to me), in the heat of battle, I end up speaking WAY TOO LOUDLY and my wife has certainly had enough of me 'yelling at the people on the computer'
The behringer mixer solved the problem for me....
There are alternative solutions but they are suboptimal: they produce echo (eg: the windows 10 software setting); annoy other folk (open back headsets); they have latency, low volume or both (seems headsets with inbuilt sidetone are often reported to have latency or low volume problem).
This is cheaper than a new gaming headset ( if you can find one with sidetone) Also the sidetone volume is adjustable with this mixer.
The Behringer MA400 is an alternative (and cheaper) if you dont want to use USB but the cabling is a bit more fiddley.
BTW I have zero relationship with Behringer . Until last week I had never heard of them. There is a lot of rubbish on the net with 'solutions' and 'experts' espousing statements like "what would you want that for" and so on. But there is an old (2014) thread on Linus Tech Tips Forum dealing with the problem (its pages long). I installed the mixer a few days ago and it works great...
Hope this helps someone.
