Combining the broadcast-quality performance of the AT2040 dynamic podcast microphone with plug-and-play USB functionality makes this the ideal microphone for podcasters, streamers, and other content creators to achieve professional results.
When live streaming, outstanding sound is just as important as interesting content and high-quality video. The AT2040USB microphone ensures a natural frequency response with rich, powerful lows and crystal-clear studio sound, making it easy for YouTubers looking to increase their viewership and streamers wanting to gain a professional edge.
This dynamic microphone also touts its quality with a highly directional, hypercardioid pickup pattern that helps eliminate common ambient noise, like the hum of a computer fan. With a narrower pickup angle than a cardioid design, the AT2040USB provides focused vocal capture, which is ideal and super effective for creators and gamers who stream and chat with followers.
Additionally, the microphone's robust metal body includes an integrated shock mount to minimize unwanted noise and vibration, while its internal pop filter protects against harsh spoken sounds. For added noise, shock, and vibration cancellation that may be transmitted through a mic stand, boom, or mount, users can purchase the AT8458a shock mount separately.
Highly Directional Voice Capture - Vocal Clarity
Hypercardioid polar pattern provides maximum vocal isolation for professional-quality sound.
Mute Button - Simple to Silence
A simple touch of the capacitive mute button immediately silences the microphone. The mic's LED ring changes from blue to red indicating that the audio is muted.
Headphone Output - Zero Latency Monitoring
A headphone jack with volume control allows you to monitor audio directly from the microphone, while the mix control allows you to blend your microphone signal with computer audio.
Headphone Output - Clean Articulation
The AT2040USB's multistage foam mesh windscreen includes a nonwoven filter to allow close-up use without annoying pops.
Integrated Shock Mount and Low-cut Filter - Quiet, Professional Performance
The mic features a specially designed, integrated shock mount that tames any noise, shock and vibration that might be transmitted through a mic stand, boom or mount. The low-cut filter eliminates low-frequency sound for additional reduction of vibration and surrounding environmental noise.
