Here's What Audio-Technica say:
Taking cues from our BP40 broadcast microphone, the rugged AT2040 dynamic microphone brings professional broadcast-quality sound and style to podcasters and other content creators at an accessible price. The mic's multistage windscreen combines a nonwoven filter with foam mesh to provide superior internal pop filtering, while its integrated shock mount prevents unwanted noise by attenuating vibration from a boom arm or mic stand.
The highly directional pickup (hypercardioid) keeps the sound focused on your voice and helps to minimise unwanted room noise, ensuring professional-quality broadcasts. The microphone comes with a pivoting stand mount, threaded adapter, and a soft protective pouch.
