That's interesting. You may be the only one and the luckiest one who does not have this issue. Not sure if Sony has corrected this flaw in its later productions.

 

where did you buy and how long have you been using this pair?

I think I was one of the first few to get mine. Back then, I could only find it for ridiculous prices on eBay or roughly $500 on AssessoryJack (back then, I don't think many people knew about it then). I ended buying my pair from musicaacoustics.com, bundled with a pair of DBA-02. I use it quite regularly, and often when at the gym or even playing soccer with my friends. It even has a small chip in the paint, but the lettering is fine. I sweat excessively, perhaps this might have an effect? I am more frustrated about the flimsy 3.5mm jack at the moment, but it doesn't really bother me.

I haven't noticed any fading at all ... and I've been handling them over 24 hours now!

 

Seriously, I wonder if I should consider applying some kind of clear coating now while they're new.  Anyone have any suggestions?

Shortly after that post, I carefully painted some clear coat over the lettering and surfaces that are handled.  No problems since.
