I also think a certain amount of fading must come into it - compared to NOS :

Isn't the top one the "Sotto Voce" version, whereas the one with the white logo is the normal version?

Can I just ask,is that the only difference between the headsets?(bright white lettering,and faded slightly!) and if so, why/what does it mean? I always wondered what it means when I saw that in the description!

The Sotto Voce ones (faded) are more subtle I suppose for people who don't want to shout out they have spent silly money on a headset. Or think it looks better without the obvious labelling.

Cheaper (if you don't get caught by the customs man) or about the same (if you do get caught) as standard UK retail :D

Once they are gone, there gone ...
