I've recently discovered that SH300s bought in Italy come with a 4 year warranty? Why do we only get 2?

Due to local laws - many warranties in the UK state 1 yr!, others have 2 (EU ruling) but local IT laws may have 4 as you state. In the UK, there is the sale of goods act which is supposed to protect you against faults with products up to six years. I know people who have been given new TV's after 4 years due to screen problems, but you have to talk to the manager and have the nerve to press your case and not let up.

Purely down to marketing and cost of provision.
