The Auray BAI-2N is a two-section broadcast arm with internal springs . This versatile and sturdy broadcast arm is great for studio as well as home use. It's ideal for broadcast, voiceover, and podcasts.

The BAI-2N broadcast arm is designed with internal springs that provide a clean and sleek look. The internal balance springs are precision engineered to support and hold in place microphones of up to 5 lb / 2.27kg. The design also minimizes handling noise when re-positioning the arm. The broadcast arm features a standard 5/8"-27 microphone stud mount that is compatible with most shockmounts and microphone clips. The angle of the microphone stud mount can be adjusted and secured with the locking knob, and the angle is maintained when re-positioning the arm. This eliminates the need to readjust it every time the arm is moved. With an extension of up to 40 inches, and the ability to rotate the arm 360°, the BAI-2N allows for precise microphone placement.

The BAI-2N also features a heavy-duty combo mount that consists of a sturdy C-clamp and a heavy-metal desktop mount. The C-clamp is capable of fastening onto desktops up to 2.3" thick. The C-clamp's slim design minimizes the clearance needed to mount it between a desk and wall. The desktop mount detaches from the C-clamp and provides the option of permanent installation to a desktop with the mounting screws (included). A 14" riser is included for adding height to the broadcast arm in order to extend over computer or studio monitors.

Auray BAI-2N Reviews

Very nice spring arm

By Robert

This arm comes with a table clamp mount that can be converted to permanent installation via supplied wood screws. This allows installation on almost any table or desk. The overall construction is sturdy and will support most any microphone suitable for broadcast use--I have used both a Shure SM7B and a Neumann TLM-104 on it with no problem. It can be moved with virtually no noise--the internal springs are silent. There is an internal cable option for those who want it. (I prefer being able to change out the cable quickly.) I have not found the riser useful, but I am sure there are situations where it would be. Overall, this is as good or better than any other spring arm I have used, and the price is right.

I searched and read about many brands. Paid attention to customer reviews etc. The ones I had narrowed down to still had some neg feedback. Then, somehow, I came across this one. Read all the reviews and even watched a youtube so I decided to go for it. It's great. No issues. It supports the RE20 with the sus mount very well. Love the riser. You don't have to use the riser if you don't need it but I'm using it. You can clamp or drill holes and screw it in place with the supplied screws. If you are scratching your head comparing others (like I did) stop scratching and buy this one.

The extension allows this to be mounted behind a computer monitor and still have the mic placed wherever it needs to be. This has good load capacity and still easily adjustable.

Sturdy arm, one little flaw

Robust and stable tool. I was wondering about the extension but it works well allowing it to go over a 27 inch screen. The scissors must be handled carefully with both hands as they are very tight. Nice addition of channels for the cables even though I couldn't figure out how to slide the cables at the foot level: I guess the plastic part can be taken out and replaced but I'm afraid it will break. I added Velcro straps to hold the cables in place on the articulated arms. One thing that concerns me: After a few rotations of the support arm, the metal quickly wears out in the extension base and forms metal residue. I am thinking of sanding with sandpaper to soften the stem.

Nice, Sturdy, and Quiet

I was deciding between this arm and the Rode PSA, but in the end there were several consistent complaints about the Rode that made me steer to the Auray. After having the BAI-2N for about a month, I'm extremely happy with the purchase. The arm seems very sturdy and has had no trouble at all supporting the various mics I've hung from it, including the Rode PodMic, which any review will tell you is a real chunky boi of a mic. The desk clamp is also stiffer than I was expecting, and the arm is well tensioned so that it takes some effort to reposition and stays in place well once you've got it set. I have noticed absolutely no noise from the springs, which is great as I have friends with much cheaper arms that will accidentally slap their mic or arm and I can hear the springs vibrating over our VOIP call. The only issue is that there's a tiny bit of play in the base that lets the arm pitch back and forth a small bit, but it's pretty negligible and once you add the weight of a mic and cable to the arm, it becomes hard to notice unless you're looking for it.

Just right for my purposes

For voiceover work, I have the base of the arm attached to the back of my desk (without the optional riser), extending above one of my monitors. The arm is easy to position, and it stays firmly in place (no sagging). It is great.

After reading reviews of other brands on other sites. I landed B&H as my new go to headquarters for the gear needed for my home studio. As quality of Auray BAI-2N is what I was searching for. They shipped next day to my door. I hooked boom up to my desk mounted my Heil mic and I am live on air. Simple to assemble and mounts solid. Great product and better company to do business than any Ebay or Amazon seller. I am a B&H satisfied customer thank you....Brian from Connecticut.
