Summary: I bought this and the JVC HA-FX40 at around the same price($20 each). I like this for the better behaved highs, overall slight warmth, and what seems like a slightly better build quality. I like the HA-FX40 for its slightly better detail, although its highs are a bit too strong at times. The HJE355 has a very ergonomic shape and I think most people will find that it is very comfortable and fits well.
Pros: Slightly warmer sound than the JVC HA-FX40. Has strain reliefs on the buds and a right angle plug which the HA-FX40 lacks.
Cons: Perhaps just slightly less detail than the HA-FX40
Summary: I bought these to use with my laptop for listening to dvd's music clips etc. while relaxing on the sofa. I find these earphones perfect for this. They are obviously not top of the range where sound quality is concerned, but for what I use them for, or using with ipod or phone on the move, they are fine.
