AT AT2040

Audio-Technica AT2040 Hypercardioid Dynamic Podcast Microphone


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.


The Audio-Technica AT2040 is the perfect way for a podcaster to level up their sound. Tonally it ticks all the boxes with plenty of presence in the vocal range, controlled sibilance, and one of the best multi-layer pop filters I have seen. Build quality is excellent and it presents well visually. For the price, it’s a high-value contender in the podcast-specific microphone options currently on the market.


  • The dynamic microphone delivers warm, assertive broadcast sound that’s perfect for podcasting

  • Large-diaphragm for smooth, natural sound and low noise

  • Multistage foam mesh windscreen provides superior internal pop filtering

  • Integrated shock mount attenuates noise, shock, and vibration transmitted through mic stands, booms, and mounts

  • Hypercardioid polar pattern reduces pickup of sounds from the sides and rear for maximum vocal isolation

  • Includes pivoting stand mount, 5/8"-27 to 3/8"-16 threaded adapter, and a soft protective pouch

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 hyper-cardioid polar pattern results in a 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 Hypercardioid Dynamic Podcast Microphone is a great option for under £100.

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.
