Hypercardioid Dynamic Podcast Microphone
Audio-Technica - AT2040

Audio-Technica AT2040

Professional Podcasting and Content Creation MicrophoneThe Audio-Technica AT2040 dynamic XLR microphone gives podcasters, streamers, YouTubers and content creators broadcast-quality, professional and crystal clear recording.

Based on the bestselling BP40 broadcast microphone, the AT2040 features a multistage windscreen with nonwoven filter and high-quality foam mesh that provides excellent pop and hiss filtration. The built-in shock mount prevents unwanted noise and vibration that can be passed through even the best tripods and boom arms.

The AT2040 is perfect for content creators, bloggers, vloggers, podcasters and game streaming masters. At a friendly price, professional quality features include hypercardioid pattern for excellent directional voice isolation. This minimises background sound, hiss, pop and interference. If you’re recording with someone else, multiple AT2040 microphones can be set up without interference, isolating the voices of the individual speakers.
