    A friend of a friend loved his Antix but hated them slipping and sliding off his head. He loves the feel of Unobtanium but sadly Oakley never released earsocks for Antix. So out of boredom, I cooked up some Unobtanium earsocks (literally) and modified them to fit his Antix. Even comes with "exhaust pipes" at the end for the added styling!

    Got oem flak jacket and cooked them up to fit. You can try brute forcing without cooking them but I don't recommend that approach. You'll likely end up tearing the rubbers (cue the jokes) or breaking an arm (literally)

    good to know thanks

    ive always wondered if other UO rubbers could cut/exactoed into a flat piece and glued on the inside of the ear stem surface.

    Cut, yes. Glued, not recommended. If you want you can mod the frame with cut out and install rubbers like on turbines

    Haven't tried as I don't have any suitable omatter frames. If that was my antix that'd have been my mod. I got spare new blue turbine socks that can be used if you're up for experiment
