The front side of the speaker was blue in colour while the backside carried white. The 40mm magnet horn driver of the speaker can be seen clearly at the face of the speakers, silver in middle and black on surroundings which are basically a cone of Harmony. A cone is a very important material in speakers and liable to produce sound. One more thing, at the front of the Mercury speaker there is no grill and cone of speakers can be touched or pierced by something accidentally, thus a user has to keep these speakers out of the reach of small children.

Overall, the design is simple and not complicated which one cannot understand while setting it up

On the other hand, cuts have to be accepted in the sound from such as frugal USB speaker. Emphatically, these 2.0 stereo speakers have a clear sound in the middle and highs, however, the bass production is totally vanquished in Harmony’s small size speakers. Yes, don’t expect a high amount of bass at all, at the price of ₹ 400.

I am not saying you won’t get the feel of bass in the songs but perceptible not in real sense. The wonderful thing even at maximum we didn’t find any trembling in the audio nevertheless somewhat flutter was there, especially in heavy treble songs. Overall, however, the vocals are clear, loud and without any significant noise or other noise that would become a snag, a person can enjoy the music.

For music from your own playlist, movies or videos, these speakers offer unbeatable value for money.
