    The AT2040USB microphone combines the broadcast-quality performance of the AT2040 dynamic microphone with plug-and-play USB functionality, making it easy for podcasters, streamers, and other content creators to achieve professional results.
    In live streaming, good sound is just as important as interesting content and high-quality video. With its crystal-clear studio sound, the easy-to-use AT2040USB is the ideal microphone for YouTubers looking to increase their viewership and streamers wanting to gain a professional edge. This dynamic microphone features a highly directional, hypercardioid pickup pattern that isolates the user’s voice from surrounding noise, ensuring the focus remains on the spoken content. Gamers who stream and chat with followers will appreciate the isolation from common ambient noise, such as the hum of a computer fan.
    The microphone’s robust metal body includes an integrated shock mount to attenuate unwanted noise and vibration, while its internal pop filter protects against harsh spoken sounds. The AT8458a shock mount (sold separately) can also be used with the microphone to further reduce any noise, shock, or vibration that might be transmitted through a mic stand, boom, or mount.
    The AT2040USB is also equipped with a headphone jack to enable real-time monitoring of the audio and a soft-touch mute button for quick, reliable muting at the microphone.
