Would the behringer xenyx 302usb improve nw800 mic quality

I bought the neewer nw-800 microphone just around 4 months ago, i am very disappointed. The chain is - Xlr from microphone to phantom power , xlr to 3.5mm from phantom power straight to the motherboards soundcard. Since the behringer provides the preamp and the phantom power, can i just get the mixer and remove the phantom power from the chain? Would it improve the quality of the microphone?

 

Edit: I meant after i get the behringer mixer, the chain would be - mic xlr to xlr into behringer, usb to soundcard from behringer.

 

Edit 2: I could also just get the atr2500 usb, or the razer seiren x. Main use would be streaming.

def. get a normal Usb mic. They work much better and simpler.

 

Or get a proper interface not a mixer

As i've searched the internet, i am aware that a mixer is not very different from an interface

I don't think the quality of that mic would improve much even if you ran it into a really nice USB interface / mixer.

Not to mention that every USB mixer below $150 is hot trash, at least in my experience. Behringer's UMC22, Scarlett's Solo, or a PreSonus AudioBox are the only lower end interfaces I would ever recommend, and even then the UMC22 is bordering hot trash.

A USB microphone is probably best for your situation.

DONT get Behringer... if you want a interface go Focusrite they have the best in class preamps

I record my music with this
