    When I receive packages containing oakleys, i notice an odor, not sure if it is from the rubbers or what but it is definitely distinct. I also notice it now when i open my case that has x metals in it, not so much in my omatter case. So i guess the questions is, DO YOU SMELL THAT?

    Wish we had smell comparison links lol. But I just got a tb1 that came with a small watch vault that smelled the same, i figured it was stashed in a case with x metals too.

    I get that " smell" too when I work on the frames....I believe it is the rubber, cause I know titanium doesnt emit an odor.....in a nut shell.your rubber is deteriorating.

    I have smelled this on brand new pairs as well, I just chalked it up to something like new car smell.
