Reviews around price (4.53 of 5)

  • Simple & easy to setup with great sound quality for a nice price.
  • Building quality is good for the price and the performance to cost is awesome
  • The price was cheap enough to be worth the gamble; I've used Behringer things a few times in the past, but never an interface, and was worried it might be too junky to be usable
  •  In my opinion its a great audio interface at a very affordable price
  • Sounds good, low noise, no latentency, high quality, good price!

Reviews around quality (4.14 of 5)

  • So, with that in mind, I found this equipment hard to use, poor sound quality, had constant glitches that were bizarre
  • Easy to set up and use, good features, and great sound quality.
  • Cheap, small, good quality, simple connectivity and ease of use, and lightweightCons
  • Now the interface does have a good quality sound to it, but it is VERY quiet
  • Drivers aren’t hard to update and the sound quality is hard to beat from a budget analog to digital interface.

Reviews around product (4.03 of 5)

  • the Behringer is an awesome product and way better than the focusrite for me, and the price was unbeatable...
  • While the product didn't have any defects out of the box, and was shipped well enough...it is unusable on my Windows 10 computer
  • I can't say for certain if it's simply because the product is bad or if this particular unit is defective
  • This is a great product, but it's missing significant documentation
  • so surprised to say it was worse than the cheaper product

Reviews around advertise (3.98 of 5)

  • Very straightforward, works as advertised, perfect for the audio needs of a movie making novice!
  • I bought this interface to use with the AT2035 Microphone, it works as advertised but it requires some important setup steps or else it wouldn't work well- Important STEPS for Windows USERS:1- (CRUCIAL STEP
  • The unit does not work as advertised...the Inst2 input is non-existent
  • As far as I can tell, the interface works as advertised
  • since it doesn't work as I intend it to, I'm giving it a 2 star until it gets fixed.

Reviews around preamps (3.96 of 5)

  • The mic preamps sound better than the Focusrite in terms of less noise floor, no EMI issues, and just better sheer transparency
  • The hardware is very good for the price - I am not an audiophile, but the preamps are quiet
  • It solved my latency issues in my daw, and the preamps sound nice and warm to my ears
  • since it doesn't work as I intend it to, I'm giving it a 2 star until it gets fixed.
  • Preamps are great too, had a few minor issues between the drivers and my daw

Reviews around value (3.94 of 5)

  • Absolutely useless product registration procedure caused me to lose hours out of my day .. screw any company that disregards the value of my time to this degree .. who the hell knows what will happen next (if anything), but I suspect this one's a monumental lemon .. don't waste your time!
  • since it doesn't work as I intend it to, I'm giving it a 2 star until it gets fixed.
  • This little audio interface is simple, basic , very portable, and a great value.
  • Great product as expected from Beringer on the price point it delivers great value
  • The U-Phoria ended all that madness because it has it's own Windows 10 driver

Reviews around device (3.87 of 5)

  • I'm going to try one more device at a different price point before I break down and get a PCI Audio Interface.
  • so I picked this device to digitize the signal for USB input, and it works great!
  • The device is MAC and PC compatible and will work with most any DAW
  • This is going to be the perfect low budget tracking device for my needs
  • It's a low price device, much cheaper than something you can reliably depend on

Reviews around sound (3.63 of 5)

  • When playing my guitar through the device the sound is clear and responsive
  • It creates a hissing sound, no matter the gain level , that is painful to listen to and it ruins recordings
  • Now the interface does have a good quality sound to it, but it is VERY quiet
  • This interface sounds damn near professional, vocals are clear & sound in your face
  • THIS LITTLE CHEAP SOUND CARD IS AMAZING AND PARED WITH THE SPARK FOR A

Reviews around thing (3.44 of 5)

  • this thing is so cheap i couldn't even connect my mic to it
  • This becomes especially annoying when you need to connect a microphone to this and you nearly break the thing every single time
  • Good thing I backed up the original drivers when they were available
  • The preamp is pretty good...a little muddy, but for the price, this thing is unbeatable.
  • And that was only briefly before ASIO crashed and killed the whole thing

Reviews around unit (3.17 of 5)

  • For the price I don't think there's anything else out there that does what this does and does it as well as this unit does
  • When I hooked the Focusrite back up and listened, it was clear that the Behringer is not a very good sounding unit
  • Some reviews state that they received a faulty unit (possibly)
  • I can't believe that such an inexpensive unit sounds so good
  • If you don't have the EMF problems I did, then you will love this unit for what it does

Reviews around star (2.60 of 5)

  • For its price, it's about as simple and intuitive as it gets
  • I found this unit while looking for something a bit more portable than my normal setup, primarily for recording guitar and bass direct to laptop, as well as to drive high impedance phones and some voice demo work
  • I used this device to replace a Mackie ProFX 8 Mixer board for my voiceover work, as well as for lightweight music production.
  • The phantom power works as it should, although, there is but a single switch which means additional gear may be required if you are mixing sound sources that don’t play well with phantom power
  • since it doesn't work as I intend it to, I'm giving it a 2 star until it gets fixed.

Reviews around speaker (2.40 of 5)

  • I used this device to replace a Mackie ProFX 8 Mixer board for my voiceover work, as well as for lightweight music production.
  • While the speakers by no means did not sound terrible, there was a notable improvement when I finally got the Behringer device up and running
  • Even if I solve the compatibility issues or switch back to linux, I still have to rig it up to get around the noisy speaker outs from the badly implemented USB power
  • The phantom power works as it should, although, there is but a single switch which means additional gear may be required if you are mixing sound sources that don’t play well with phantom power
  • The whole reason I bought this interface was so I could get a reliable, good, clean output to my new expensive speakers

Reviews around guitar (2.37 of 5)

  • Previously I was using Guitar rig but their drivers no longer worked for me.
  • I used this device to replace a Mackie ProFX 8 Mixer board for my voiceover work, as well as for lightweight music production.
  • This was able to also record line level from a passive guitar pickup with transparent quality.
  • Update it works fine with the Mic, the guitar simply just doesn't work with it.
  • I had some issues with the line level signal using a bass a guitar here and there, but now it is impossible to do any tracking as the playback is littered with crackling and popping

Reviews around plastic (2.33 of 5)

  • Fit and finish is great, but material is cheap plastic.
  • The top mounted plastic dials are a bit too cheap-feeling for my taste and the fact is that you can get something better, from the same company, by just spending a few extra bucks.
  • A far cry from cheap plastic Behringer products of the previous decade, this unit sports an all metal chassis and cover
  • Plastic, feels cheap, and just small audio gibberish I'll save yallOther thoughts
  • Build quality is OK, but the knobs on top feel like hollow plastic that could break easy.

Reviews around trip latency (2.28 of 5)

  • The phantom power works as it should, although, there is but a single switch which means additional gear may be required if you are mixing sound sources that don’t play well with phantom power
  • I found this unit while looking for something a bit more portable than my normal setup, primarily for recording guitar and bass direct to laptop, as well as to drive high impedance phones and some voice demo work
  • The phantom power has enough current to power hungry mics like my old Rode NT2.Using the WASAPI drivers, and by making sure this is the only device on the USB bus to which it is connected, I am able to get round trip latency of 3ms in Sonar on a modern PC running Windows 10. without audio dropouts or glitches
  • For its price, it's about as simple and intuitive as it gets
  • I have not been able to get reasonably low latency in ASIO from the Scarlett, and the lowest I could set the buffers for the Scarlett was 424 samples (which provides well over 15msc round trip latency at 44.1K).

Reviews around people (1.95 of 5)

  • downloaded the Windows driver installed it and guess what people no popping or glitches on my Windows computer.
  • Apparently some people had problems with ASIO4ALL in Windows10 and nicely posted it for download
  • People I was talking to on Skype would complain that I was breaking up.
  • People like me who are used to the luxury of an onboard DSP zero latency monitor mixer (like the Delta has) will be a little disappointed by the lack of monitor adjustment with the simple analog input monitoring on the box itself, but it's still work-able, just a bit unusual to lack a separate control for monitor mixing

Reviews around noise (1.68 of 5)

  • Super clean sound with no audible background noise like hissing or ground loop.
  • For AT2020s the gain set to 11 o'clock is plenty and there's no audible noise at that level.
  • This audio interface will repeatedly glitch, creating deafeningly loud noise directly into your ears
  • I have a $200 rhode mic, and the interface can't support it, you can sometimes get good feedback from the vocals with it, but sometimes you get static noise with your vocals.
