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.

It has its drawbacks, but this Panasonic is easy to live with and has an insightful and dynamic picture performance – it’s a great set
The AVR-X2000 brings Denon back to the AV receiver top table in this ultra-competitive price category
A decent, affordable effort from Otone but sound quality is tainted by a distracting brightness
