Product description

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. 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 hypercardioid polar pattern results in 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. 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much needed upgrade from my old mictrophone
By Wyatt Knutson on October 13, 2021
Great sound quality, and it has a nice bulky solid weight to it. Just to be clear, it does not come with the boom arm, cable, or audio interface. But none the less, it's a great microphone. It's definitely worth the price. I'll put what I bought along with it below:

- eWonLife Mic Boom Arm, Microphone Arm Stand Desk Mount, Adjustable Desktop Mic Arm for Blue Yeti, Snowball, Hyperx Quadcast, with Desk Clamp, Filter, 5/8" to 3/8", to 1/4" Adapter, 8 x Cable Ties

- Focusrite Scarlett Solo (3rd Gen) USB Audio Interface with Pro Tools | First

The AT2040 is well built and a bargain XLR microphone, on air tests on ssb are very good.
It's heavy so bare that in mind if you are mounting on a boom arm.

4.0 out of 5 stars 一般環境でコスパ良く使えて定番になりうる、そんな良いマイク
Reviewed in Japan on November 15, 2021
【前置き】
コンデンサーマイクはMPM1000→TM80→AT4040と使ってきましたが、
安いマイクはノイズや音質に難があり、少しお高いAT4040は素晴らしいクリアな音質でしたが、その高感度故に音を拾いすぎて外を走る車の音もしっかり入ってしまうし、鉄筋マンションということもあって反響音も拾いまくって涙を飲んで売却しました。
そしてコンデンサーマイク離れをした後にこちらのAT2040が新発売!とのことでしたので価格も安いしで試しに購入。

【外観】
めっっっちゃかっこいいです。ブラックの頑丈なメタルボディで剛性もしっかりありますし、コンデンサー程に湿度管理に気をつける必要もないので接続しっぱなしである程度雑に使っても大丈夫。
見た目もすこぶるかっこいいのでマイクアームに接続しっぱなしで、視界に入るだけでうっとりします。
飾ってるだけでもおしゃれでテンション上がります。

【接続】
色々すれば外付けのショックマウントも使えるみたいですが、自分はデフォルトの一体型のままアームと接続しています。アームの種類によっては変換ネジが必要になるかと思います。大体アーム買うと付属しているかとは思いますが。
角度調整のつまみもしっかりしていて、程よい角度に気持ちよく調整することができます。マイク自体はそこそこ重量はありますが使っていてずるずるズレてくるといったこともありません。

【音質】
一番気になる点だと思います。自分の使用環境はみんな大好きオーディオインターフェースAG03。
AG-03は元々ホワイトノイズが発生しやすい機種のオーディオインターフェースではあるので、その環境ですとやはり多少のノイズは乗ります。このサーーーッというノイズはIFが起因のものだと思いますが、安いマイクを使っていた時のようなヴーーンという低音ノイズなんかは全く聴こえませんでした。
超指向性なのでコンデンサーマイクの時のような、エアコンや外の車の走行音等の周りの環境音も大幅に拾わなくなりました。タスカルラスカル。
逆に言うとある程度大雑把な位置でもVCなら問題ないですが、楽曲制作等の際にはマイクの位置の調整次第で入力のされかたが左右されますので色々テストしてみて位置に気をつける必要があります。

ポップガード内蔵とのことでテストでマイクを近づけてナレーション録音をしていても、特に気にならないレベルまで吹かれや破裂音等うまく抑えてくれています。気になる方は更に外部のポップガードを使っても良いかもしれません。自分は気にならなかったので使っていません。その方がとてもスタイリッシュ!!!!最高!!

【コンデンサーマイク(AT4040)との比較】
コンデンサーマイクと比較して、透き通るようなクリア感は確かに減ります。
しかししっかり芯のある声として録音してくれますし心配してたこもり感もコンデンサーマイクと比較すれば多少はありますが気にならないレベルなので、VCや配信、ボーカルや楽器録音まで幅広く万能にこなせてくれるタイプのマイクだと思います。環境の整った完全に静かで反響しない場所以外ではやはりダイナミックマイクの方が遥かにオススメです。

【入力レベル】
懸念事項としてAT2040に限った話ではないのですが、ダイナミックマイクは入力が小さいのでそのまま使うと音が小さく録音されます。むしろダイナミックマイクの中ではAT2040は感度の高い方なのでIF(AG03)のゲインを上げれば普通にVCに使う分には問題ないぐらいまで十分大きい音で拾ってくれます。
ただIFのゲインを上げるとノイズも大きくなりますので、ダイナミックマイクを使用する場合はマイクプリアンプを間に噛ませてあげた方が大幅に音量アップ=ゲインの上げ幅を小さくすることができてノイズも減る=音質アップになります。
自分はCodaMuscさんのマイクプリのMB-1を使用しましたが、フェーダーMAX+ゲイン2時からフェーダー標準位置+ゲイン11時まで下げることができて音量は上がってノイズは減りました。マイクから結構離れてVCしても大きい声で向こうに届くようになったので楽になりました。

【総評】
音質最高!これがあれば他になにもいらない!!と言うような商品では決してありません。
コンデンサーマイクや高価格帯のものと比べると、やはりどうしても音質のクリア感や多少のこもり感等に差はでます。
しかしこの価格帯で高い質感のカッコいいマイクで、これだけの必要十分な音質+低ノイズで録音できることを考えるとかなりコストパフォーマンスは高いと思います。
コンデンサーマイクは持ってるけど雑音や反響音も結構拾うんだよなーという方のサブマイクとして、またはこれからVCや配信や楽曲制作等したいけど最初のマイクどれにしようかなーといった入門者の方まで、幅広くオススメしたいマイクです。
少なくとも自分の環境(鉄筋住宅で反響音が入る、隣に道路があり車の走行音が聞こえる)等ではAT4040よりAT2040の方がいい音で録音してくれて編集作業もやりやすいです。

お値段もお手頃ですし何よりカッコいいし十分に良い音で録音してくれるそんなマイク。
これから末永く使っていこうと思います。
