    So far the only thing that I've found is that on the end of the earstem, there is a piece of thin metal running through it. It can be bent to "hug" your head a little better so it won't feel like it's going to slip off. I did it with mine and it does feel more secure. Other than that, I don't know. Hope it helps.

    This is my only complaint about the Badman, it is quite loose fitting.

    I've had some adjusted at a local optician's office. He used a frame heater to soften up the bridge and was able to bend them slightly to give them more of a curve. However, that was on a pair of split jackets. Don't know if I'd try that on some new badmans, but if you do, let me know how it works out.

    I wouldn't bet on that ... In my experience they'll never 'mod' a frame ... On fix or replace parts that are broken ...

    Sadly, if a Badman is too big ... It's too big ... Maybe an optometrist can bend the omatter slightly but my guess is that it'll likely skew the optics a little ...

    Not recommended if you're looking to maintain the XYZ optics ...

    I can definitely say that on the split jackets it did not mess with the optics. I use them with the wind kit for riding and didn't notice any difference in optics.
    The bend did however make them fit better. Fortunately for me, I know an optician and he bent them for me. If you know one, great, if not, I bet you could talk one into helping you out.
