SKU B0C2G4PGYS Category


Take your podcast, voiceovers, or live streams to the next level with the Audio-Technica AT2040USB – a dynamic USB microphone designed for today’s content creators. With plug-and-play functionality, built-in controls, and Broadcast-grade audio quality, this mic makes it easier than ever to produce professional sound.

The hypercardioid polar pattern focuses on capturing your natural, well-balanced voice while minimizing unwanted ambient noises. That means your vocals will stand out clearly and consistently, even in less-than-ideal recording conditions. The cardioid pickup is exceptionally good at isolating the main sound source while reducing background sounds and reverberations.

Setting up the AT2040USB is as simple as connecting the USB cable and selecting it as your input device. No drivers or additional software needed. The mic operates on 5V power supplied by your computer’s USB port. The onboard headphone jack with volume control allows you to directly monitor your mic signal in real time with zero latency. Adjust levels and listen to the unprocessed sound to make sure you’re capturing audio exactly as you want it.

An LED indicator ring visually displays the mic’s status, glowing blue when powered on and red when muted. The built-in soft-touch mute button provides convenient one-touch muting right on the mic body so you stay in control. Mute coughs, plosives, or unwanted noise with a simple tap.
