The decals of the original PIAA OTO HORN box uses a stylized “R” in the word “HORN”. The reflective material of the sticker paper used is also thinner, more delicate, and premium.


The original OTO Horn product has the correct PIAA logo: wider letters and no spaces in between the letters; has deep and cleaner etchings of the logo and the product specifications. The body of the horn itself is slimmer.

The original OTO Horn has an upside-down “>ABS<” mark, while the fake version’s mark is right-side up.
