    is there a difference in fit? the gen 1 eye jackets are a tad snug on my dome. perhaps the new eye jackets are larger? based on pics, the frame seems the same though....your thought O experts....

    Monster_Beetle did a video review on this I think.

    No difference in size, just an update of the O Matter and the hinges were reshaped. The newer O Matter would be a bit more flexible I believe.

    Plus the 1st Gen had no clear coat and thinner earstems.

    Eye Jackets:
    Gen 1: Had no clear coat and weak stems. Flat Icon
    Gen 2: Had a clear coat and thicker stems. The word 'Jacket' was raised on the inside of the ear stem.
    Modern: Had the metal icon and a rounded hinge. Boxes are labeled New Eye Jacket.
    Version: 2.0 and 3.0 came out after and were not related.
