Audio-Technica has announced the AT2040 Hypercardioid Dynamic Podcast Microphone.

Inspired by the performance of Audio-Technica’s BP40 Large-Diaphragm Dynamic Broadcast Microphone, the AT2040 offers professional broadcast-quality sound with exceptional vocal reproduction to podcasters and other content creators at an affordable price point.

AT2040 Hypercardioid Dynamic Podcast MicrophoneFeaturing a rugged all-metal construction, the AT2040 excels at isolated/up-close vocal reproduction and rejection of unwanted room noise due to its tight hypercardioid polar pattern. The mic claims a ‘smooth, warm, natural sound’, while the multistage windscreen combines a nonwoven filter with foam mesh to provide internal pop filtering, and its integrated shock mount prevents unwanted noise by attenuating vibration from a boom arm or mic stand.

The AT2040’s XLR output connects to a conventional analogue microphone input, providing versatile use with everything from USB audio interfaces to professional mixing consoles. The mic comes standard with a pivoting stand mount, 5/8”-27 to 3/8”-16 threaded adapter, and a soft protective pouch.

‘Audio-Technica microphones have been embraced by streamers, YouTubers and other content creators in recent years, but previously we didn’t offer a dynamic hypercardioid microphone so finely-tuned to the needs of podcasters,’ says Audio-Technica US Marketing Director, Gary Boss. ‘We are proud to offer the AT2040, with its smooth vocal reproduction and focused pickup that will help take your podcast to the next level.’

The AT2040 Hypercardioid Dynamic Podcast Microphone is available now, at an RRP of £89/MAP of US$99.
