    The pair with the Gold Iridium lenses are definitely Second Generation Titanium (compared them to mine), which is close to Plasma. Not 100% sure about the emerald pair as I don't have a plasma frame, but they do appear to be plasma

    Valkie2 got it. Very very very subtle difference. But the plasma should be more silver/whiter and the ti should be closer to tan/beige in tint.

    @Valkie 2 & @dragonvoi thx for your responses; there is a very subtle difference between the 2. Almost unnoticeable. So I guess both sellers were right, the emerald is plasma and the gold iridium is titanium

    I concur with all of the above info! Some 2nd gen titanium can appear a little greyer also, but with the fact they're loaded already with their original equipment this is the most likely verdict.

    That seems to be the case. I was more confused about the other pair. It look almost exactly the same
