Amazon only sells the normal edition I think. The Facelift edition, from what I've heard, is a very rare model. They're probably sold out by now. Other than the looks and comfort though, there is no difference between the two models. Honestly, I prefer the looks of the non facelift model. You can always purchase the other earpads if you want, for increase in comfort. But I think if you just bear it for a few days, you'll get used to the clamping force - as even I with glasses have managed to find it tolerable now. Hope that answers your question.
Actually I think the guy who posted pics a week or so ago got his from Amazon and it came with the non-facelift cup design but the facelift version of the ear pads and headband padding. I suspect that's what you would get if you ordered from Amazon and if that's the case you can just remove the covers on the cups which are attached with double sided tape and you'll have a facelift version. Or just leave the cups as they are because you'll already have the improved comfort of the facelift version. It looks like Beyer may have switched to the new pads and headband padding before running out of the old style cups. That or they are keeping both versions alive simultaneously but using the new padding on both.
EDIT: A third theory is that only the coiled cable version has the different cups while both have the upgraded padding. Has anyone gotten a CC 1350 recently?
