Microphone and headphone maker Audio-Technica has a new microphone for podcasters and others, the AT2040.
A release explains the aim is to “professional broadcast-quality sound to podcasters and other content creators at an accessible price.”
The AT2040 is a hypercardioid dynamic mic for a tight capture pattern in less-than-optimal situations. It includes an internal pop filter and an integrated shockmount. The housing is metal for durability.
A 5/8-inch-27 to 3/8-inch-16 threaded adapter/standmount is side-attached for optimizing arm/boom-mounting.
Audio-Technica’s Gary Boss said, “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. … the AT2040, with its smooth vocal reproduction and focused pickup that will help take your podcast to the next level.”
