A hypercardioid dynamic microphone perfect for podcasting and streaming.

The Audio-Technica AT2040USB is an ideal microphone for content creators, featuring a dynamic design for excellent voice capture with onboard USB functionality. Combining the broadcast-quality performance of the AT2040 dynamic podcasting microphone with plug-and-play USB functionality makes this an ideal microphone for podcasters and streamers looking to achieve professional results.

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 a focused vocal capture, which is ideal for creators and gamers who stream and chat with followers.

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. Equipped with a built-in headphone jack for real-time audio monitoring with no delay, this microphone also features a quick muting function to easily mute audio at the mic.

The AT2040USB comes with an included cable and adapter for plug-and-play functionality. Users can connect the microphone directly to their computer for immediate use, without an audio interface or additional cabling. Whether it's Twitch streaming, YouTube content creation or online chats, the AT2040USB is a versatile and functional solution.
