Audio-Technica Unveils AT2040 Hypercardioid Dynamic Podcast Microphone

News Image
Audio-Technica has unveiled the AT2040 Hypercardioid Dynamic Podcast Microphone.

Taking cues from its BP40 professional broadcast microphone, the new AT2040 dynamic microphone brings pro-quality sound, style and all-metal construction to podcasters and other discerning content creators, at a more accessible price.

The highly directional, precision-made hypercardioid pickup keeps the sound focused on your voice and helps to minimise unwanted room noise, ensuring professional-quality broadcasts even from less-than-ideal locations.

To further reduce unwanted noise, the mic features a specially designed, integrated shock mount that dampens shock and vibration that's transmitted through a mic stand, boom or mount.

Additionally, the AT2040’s multistage windscreen combines a nonwoven filter with foam mesh to provide superior internal pop filtering, allowing close-up use with exceptional clarity and without annoying pops.

For the best combination of sound quality, robust operation and versatility, the AT2040 has an XLR output that connects to a conventional analog microphone input. This provides easy pairing with everything from multi-input home studio computer interfaces to professional mixing consoles.

Rounded off with rugged, all-metal construction and a sonic signature built upon Audio-Technica’s six decades of audio expertise, the AT2040 truly offers creators professional performance at an affordable price.

Included with the microphone is a pivoting stand mount, 5/8"-27 to 3/8"-16 threaded adapter, and a soft protective pouch.
