For the August 2021 Mixdown review - click here

Taking cues from their BP40 broadcast microphone, the rugged Audio-Technica AT2040 dynamic microphone brings professional broadcast-quality sound and style to podcasters and other content creators at an accessible price. The highly directional pickup (hypercardioid) keeps the sound focused on your voice and helps to minimise unwanted room noise, ensuring professional-quality broadcasts. The AT2040 microphone offers podcasters and content creators all the features needed to get started or to upgrade their setups for a more professional sound.

Enjoy outstanding audio without having to worry about background noise: this microphone’s unique design produces consistent audio quality at a close range without annoying pops, and the integrated shock mount further minimises noises, shocks, or vibrations.

Delivering excellent vocal isolation, multiple AT2040 mics can be used in close proximity without issue, so hosting podcast interviews or collaborations will require minimal post-production editing. Setup is quick and easy with the XLR output connecting to professional broadcast equipment or interfaces for Mac and PC. The dynamic design provides warm, rich, and professional-sounding vocals for content creators of all levels.

The AT2040 dynamic mic offers professional-quality broadcast sound in an affordable package. Although designed for podcasting, the AT2040 can also be used for other content creation setups, such as live streaming, gaming, or doing voice-over work.

This microphone’s large diaphragm element delivers smooth, natural sound, no matter the application. The special internal multistage windscreen (combining foam mesh and a nonwoven pop filter) paired with the hypercardioid polar pattern results in highly directional, tight pickup that reduces external noises while producing a warm, classic sound. The AT2040 podcast microphone makes it easy to record single or dual vocals while in the same room, so even when using two mics to record two-person podcasts, users will enjoy great audio pickup.

So, whether you’re a beginner or professional podcaster, the Audio-Technica AT2040 is a great option in the under $200 microphone price bracket!

Included Accessories: The AT2040 comes complete with a pivoting stand mount, 5/8"-27 to 3/8"-16 threaded adapter, and a soft protective pouch.
