Magnon Bose-Einstein condensation (mBEC) in Yttrium-Iron-Garnet films is a spectacular room-temperature macroscopic quantum phenomenon, which is under investigation since recently [1]. Although the basic properties of mBEC such as temporal [2] and spatial [3] coherence have extensively been studied during the last 5 years, the perturbed dynamics of the condensate have not been addressed so far. Here we report an experimental study of sound waves in a magnon gas, above and below the threshold for mBEC, performed using a space- and time-resolved Brillouin light scattering technique. The magnon gas was prepared using microwave pumping of magnons, while the sound waves were excited by, an additional, localized, oscillating, RF magnetic field. We show that at small wave vectors sound waves exhibit a linear dispersion law with a density independent group velocity, while at large wave vectors the dispersion changes from a linear dependence into a quadratic one at the threshold for mBEC. We demonstrate that this sudden change is due to an additional scattering mechanism that arises when an mBEC is formed. [1] S.O. Demokritov et al. Nature 443, 430 (2006) [2] V.E. Demidov et al. Phys.
