one word, dissapointing.
I had the original AH-C751 - and I loved the fit of those and the bass. I treated them roughly and in the end one bud stopped working.
So I held off from buying these replacements until I had some spare cash and now I've got them, I'm dissapointed with a) the sound quality and b) the fit of these new buds. They've changed the flanges that go into your ears from the previous model and these are more uncomfortable and offer a less comfortable and sound isolating fit (and yes I've tried all of the ones that came with it). In the end I used the flanges from my old C751's and they are a much better fit.
I was expecting an improvement in the sound with these buds, and there isn't. I think they've just gone and repackaged them and introduced some inferior flanges.
In the interim before I got these ear buds, I bought some Koss Porta Pro's to keep me going... lol the sound out of those is amazing in comparison to this (though the only issue being sound leakage, i.e. everyone else can hear what you're listening to).
I really wanted these earphones to be good and if you want to buy, source some AH-C751's instead.

The original X 300 was a great power amplifier. This Signature version is clearly better
If you want an affordable 8in tablet then this is worth a look – but there are too many flaws in its performance for us to really recommend it
A striking design with good ideas, but we’d expect far better for the money
