The sync levels didn‘t seem to work, not sure how they exactly work. Isn’t it manipulating the virtual mute button by pressing the physical MuteMe button? At least I think so, other than that, the product is wonderful!
I bought this when I got roasted on a meeting I was leading because I was also responsible for typing notes. It got very frustrating having to continually stop typing while people were talking to mute/unmute myself. Enter the MuteMe USB plug. It has several levels of settings for integration, I leave mine at the system level control for my M1 Macbook Pro and it works exactly as I want it to. Regardless of conferencing app, it mutes the mic in its entirety. I ended up finding software settings for noise cancellation that weren't configured properly for when I was typing so it kind of rendered the Mute Me less useful in that scenario. However, I have several animals in my home who can get rowdy in a moments notice so for the $20 entry point its worth keeping around to avoid the nuisance of navigating multiple screens to mute myself! I recommend it for anyone who is working in an environment that can get noisy with little warning and want to just have a clear cut, foolproof way of making sure their mic is off when it needs to be!
A physical mute button was the missing piece from my desk setup.
Using the USB-C version for my Teams meetings and it works great. I like how it pops the meeting back to the foreground when I take myself off mute. No more searching for the meeting window and the unmute button.
I'm a lead for a software development team and I'm in and out of MS Teams calls on the daily. I was relying on variety of keyboard shortcuts for coming off/on mute, but this only worked if Teams was in focus. I picked up the MuteMe Mini (USB C for my MBP) and it's been working great! Not only does it support hardware mute, but they've added full Teams integration so people don't think I'm sitting on an open mic. No issues with the built-in mic or my AirPod Pros. The software is lightweight and offers a wide array of extra customization. I sent a short video of it in action to some peers and they all asked for the link. I don't normally write reviews, but this worked so well out of the box and at this price point, it was a no-brainer.
So far so good. I bought both the full size and this button, and use the full size much more (working at home) than the smaller one (travel).
I like the ease of seeing whether or not my mic is muted or not.
The USB C version of the MuteMe Mini is terrific! It's a standard piece in my computer bag now. Very handy for use away from my desk when having to jump on the myriad of remote meetings we all now seem to participate in every day. I've had several friends purchase them now after seeing mine. Thanks!
Great device that takes any doubt over being or not being on mute during my endless series of conference calls each week.
Handy and effective during Teams and Zoom meetings.
I really enjoy using the MuteMe button. It provides a physical key to press and a clear, visual indicator that I am on mute or not. I recommend it to all who are on conference calls often.
I'm primarily using this with MS Teams on a Macbook Pro with Airpods Pro. The "level 3" integration with MS Teams works very well. My mute status in Teams always reflects that of the MuteMe and vice versa. I have the microphone muting turned off in order to avoid Teams' incessant reminder that "I might be muted", but for my use that doesn't matter.
I have the MuteMe plugged into a USB A port on my rocking station and therein lies the reason for knocking a star off. When I disconnect my MacBook from from the dock, obviously there's no more MuteMe present. But, everything still works as it should and the MuteMe software continues to reflect my mute status in Teams. When I reconnect the dock, though, the MuteMe button usually remains unlit/disconnected. I end up unplugging and replugging the device to get it working again. This is a minor issue (I don't undock often) but it is a mild annoyance.
Regardless, I'm pleased with my purchase and really appreciate not having to dig through myriad windows to find Teams in order to unmute (don't get me started on the tendency for notifications to appear right on top of the Teams mute button at the very instant that I try to click on it)!
Very practical and efficient
Easy to use and to travel with in comparison with the normal Muteme
it is so tiny and works perfectly it is should be come as part of you laptop
The form factor is great. The button is responsive and works well. I highly recommend this as a way to easily manage mute state.
This is with me using Webex, Slack and MS Teams.
Helps lower my “hot mic” incidents.
It's working well. I like the discreet style and the capacitive button is very responsive. I had a worry that I would apply too much pressure turning on/off that it could damage the USB socket but it needs only the slightest brush to recognise the touch.
I wish there were more options to work better under Linux, beyond Ubuntu support. I use it for my home laptop and wish it would support that more.
