    I am very interesting Oakley X SQUARED POLARIZED series, there are two models, One is 006011-06: Polished Carbon/Black Iridium, another is 006011-08: Carbon/OO Black Iridium Polarized.

    I see the lens color of 06 model is black from picture, while the lens color of 08 is violet shaped from picture, so what color is OO Black Iridium Polarized, it not looks black color? Does anyone who have 08 model knows the real lens color.

    Thanks.

    English is most likely not his native language, so you have to try to piece together what he means. In this case, I think he means the OO lens looks like it has a violet tint to it compared to the normal BI lens.

    Assuming that's what he means, I'll try to answer his question:

    - The Black Iridium lens has a grey base tint and has a black iridium coating.
    - The OO Black Iridium polarized has an OO base tint (rose colored, which is why it looks purplish to you) with a black iridium coating.

    The main differnces are that the Black Iridium is a neutral lens and the OO Black Iridium Polarized is a contrast lens and is also polarized to reduce glare. It's also more expensive than the non-polairzed black iridium lens. So you see, they are actually two different lenses. The "Black Iridium" part just refers to the color of the coating used on the lens. But the base tint of each lens is entirely different.

    Hope this answers your question and welcome to the forum.

    Of course, you also do a right judgment, my native language is Chinese, live in Beijing.

    i see your question, here is some info on google:

    "The OO lens delivers a true color recognition not seen in many models of sunglasses, which take much of the color out of the view you see through the glasses. Oakley OO lenses push down the blue tones in the lens, which enables you to see other colors better when looking through OO sunglasses in certain environments such as bright sunlight. "

    "00 It is slightly contrast enhancing (G40 base), whereas black iridium polarized is neutral(Grey base). After a few minutes your eyes adjust and you can't notice it. I consider them identical. "


    Oakley X Squared Color:
    Carbon/ Black Iridium 006011-01
    Plasma/ Ice Iridium 006011-02
    X-Metal/ Ruby Iridium 006011-03

    Polarized:
    Plasma/ Fire Iridium 006011-04
    Polished/ VR28 Black Iridium 006011-05
