Recommendation For A Dynamic USB Microphone?

I don't need anything super fancy, just something that sounds good and won't pick up as much background noise as a condenser. I don't plan on using it for anything other than streaming. I do want something with a cylindrical style like a condenser microphone (like this), as I'm not 100% sure that the arm I have is compatible with microphones that look more like they're meant to be held (like this). It's also just an aesthetic I really like. I would also like something that uses USB, as I don't have any devices to use XLR with.

I was looking at the ATR2500x-USB but it's a bit pricey for me at $150 USD and doesn't have any reviews.

Edit: Since there are apparently so few dynamic USB microphones that fit this description, would it be possible to get a decent dynamic XLR microphone and interface for around $100-150? Would a basic setup like that need anything other than an interface? I don't really know my audio setups super well.

There are barely any good options for dynamic usb mics. i heard of some more to be realeased later this year, but as of right now the atr2100 is probably your best option

I was actually just looking at that one but I don't like how it has to be pointed directly at you to pick you up properly. Mine kind of hangs from above and points almost directly down at the ground and I talk into the side of it and a little over the top of it.

ahh, that could cause a problem. i dont know of any other reasonably priced dynamic usb mices, unfortunatly. XLR has all the good ones.

Do you know of any decent dynamic XLR microphones that fit the description and interfaces I could pair for $100-150?

nope. not going to lie to you (xD) i really dont know that much, i just know about a few. im not very good with XLR stuff, all i know is that you also need to buy a preamp an all that
