Apparently, you've got the European version. It is completely original. No audible differences have been reported so far, despite European regulations to prevent damage audible.
Here is a quote with images of a former aide to thread "the extreme bass club" cb3723, which as I recall, was of European origin and acquired right there.

I think the rank goes
Sig Dj>Pro 900> Sig pro Bass depth
Pro900& Sig pro> Sig Pro Bass impact 50mm driver in sig dj is mylar but it goes lower. The power of the hit is close though the Pro 900 seems to reign supreme at high bass bump. The sig dj digs deeper on Hip Hop
Black Death. If you say they are top 10ers I got no reason to doubt it. If 10 other cans come and it gets dropped it gets dropped but that goes for any can.
I'm gonna head to a BBQ now. I'll be back to give my opinion on the XB which is worth less than yours since you own both but I'll give a thought on the legends.
Cool pad change tutorial video - I'm glad that JVC compensate using cruddy pads on the SZ's by making them removable
Are the XB1000's available in stores in Japan?
I'll spend some more comparative listening time soon between the SZ's (after I do a pad change) and the XB1000's and post my personal thoughts on these two bass bombers.
Careful you don't drop your SZ's on the barbie if you get called up to the grill - chargrilled cheeseburger canons will be a tough order to swallow
