You'd need to be a gasket expert to provide a good answer to that. While paying more is no guarantee of anything, the Ishino types are selling for between $200-$300 and Fel-Pro around $300. As mentioned, Acura is off the charts but they intend to stock parts for a good profit!
Ishino is a pretty well known gasket company and the set I bought were made in Japan. I'd be concerned about some knock off version from China, Indonesia or the Phillipines.
