Good tip about having it stand vertically. Here's a visual: https://raelyntan.com/wp-content/....30-pm.png

Yes there is a mute button for the mic. Just press the volume knob. The light turns red when muted.
This is a pretty solid mic. I paid $80 for this a few months back and it's worked well for me. Since I work from home, a cardioid mic is a must. It does a great job drowning out background noise from the kids so I don't have to constantly mute/unmute. A few points though

It needs to stand vertical. The mic is on the side of the mic, not the top. Just consider this for your desk space and positioning
It's a lot smaller than the regular yeti but still a little taller than I expected
The mic has a micro usb input. I wish it was USB C but since I don't move it around much it's fine
There is no mute button for the mic. The button on it is for the headphone input

Overall it works well and offers crisp sound. I do wish the software was a little better but it works fine without it.
As mrgreed18 mentioned, these have very bad USB ports that fail over time.
It's because Blue simply solders the connector right to the edge of the PCB without supporting it mechanically any other way.

If it doesn't fail acutely, what will happen is that it will gradually have weird volume spikes and drops, growing worse into cut-outs, and then complete failure.

Fixing it is simple but really tedious to do; you can resolder the old connector or replace it and run jumper wires.

I recommend against these b/c they are too expensive for something that fails this easily. If they were $30 mics, I'd be okay with the failure rate, but this is a lot to pay for a mic that can break so easily.

Sounds just as good as the regular Blue Yeti except you are missing:
- gain knob
- multiple recording modes but most only need cardioid

Pros vs Blue Yeti:
- $20-30 cheaper (regular is always on sale for $80)
- considerably smaller

Worst aspect:
- very bad micro usb port that is the point of failure, i bought the extended warranty so if it fails i can get it replaced (friend had two replaced this way) - this is probably the poster child for why USB-C is a superior connector format over micro-USB

Probably the best mic you can get at the $60-80 price range if you are gentle with it and its micro-usb port

Solid mics.

Prices seem to be coming back down as more people are leaving wfh situations and demand has lowered. I've been using the blue snowball since 2013 and it still sounds amazing and these are even better and priced the same as the snowball. The price might just get lower, but these are usually $90 or so as their blues are in the 50-70 range.

This is actually a really bad microphone for zoom calls unless you're in a treated room with zero background noise. It is not a dynamic microphone but instead a condenser microphone and so it does nothing to block any background noise or typing or movement.

If you want an excellent mic for WFH please get a dynamic microphone.

If you have zero background noise and a treated room it's a solid microphone for the price.

Great mic. I've had it since it first came out. The micro usb can get annoying, especially if you are using a desk mount boom arm. As you turn the mic into the mount it gets close the the mics micro input and it's never fully tight. If not using a boom then you should be okay.

Any recommendations for affordable dynamic mics?

It's a bit more expensive, but the best audio I've heard on a usb dynamic mis is probably the Deity V0-7U. I've heard good things about the Samson Q2U as a cheaper option, but not as nice as the Deity and I personally don't like the form factor
