Extinct Audio BM9

"A classic ribbon mic, but with better high & low frequency extension." Sound On Sound


People Say…

“BM9 ribbon from Extinct Audio sounding amazing! Vibe, detail and presence for days with zero noise… I’m in love!” Johannes Buff, France

“This mic sounds fricking nutz! Amaze balls! Thank you guys so much!” Ben Lee, Eugene, OR, USA

“It sounds wonderful. Looks fantastic too! The bottom end on these mics is rich and deep with a clear top end just like you promised. I really like it’s smaller size for a ribbon mic which makes it great for combining with other mics and getting close to source on acoustic instruments without crowding the performer. Great value for money. ” Russell Pay, London, UK

“Wow”! I initially tried them on a mid-size grand piano, and A/B’d them with some LDCs. The BM9’s had a larger soundstage, and a really beautiful low end, while actually sounding more open than the condensers!… They absolutely SLAY on piano – seemingly adding 2 feet (and a suboctave) to my Baldwin Grand. Huge but tight bass, with a clear and extended top end.” Dave Mallen, Innovation Station Music, Annadale, Virginia, USA

REP Music’s ribbon mic shoot out video featuring the BM9;

“The new Extinct Audio BM9s were a real surprise. They are really light and much easier to position as a pair. When I heard a range of blind samples from an SOS mic test, I picked out the BM9s as the best sounding mic…. since making these videos I’ve bought two BM9s.” Robin Phillips, REP Music, UK

Sound On Sound review the BM9 in their April 2018 edition. OUT NOW!!!

“… on every occasion where I needed either a figure‑8 microphone or a characteristically ‘ribbon‑y’ sound, they stepped up and delivered the goods. Not only do they sound great… they’re stylish, lightweight and easy to position… and they’re built like a tank, and usable on quiet sources. In short, the BM9 presents a very nicely judged balance of the classic and the modern, at a price level you don’t normally associate with ‘boutique’ microphones. I have bought the review pair! ” Sam Inglis, Sound On Sound, April 2018.
