Size advice needed for R1

I think I'm finally ready to make the big R1 purchase. I would love to know roughly what to expect for size on my face. I figure the best comparisons I own are Juliets, a pair of R2s, and (though I don't consider them X-Metals) Badmans.

Size wise how do the R1s stack up?

Juliets are a bit tight - they fit much better back in '01 when I got them lol.

Thanks in advance for the help!!

Maybe my face is weird but I find the orbitals to be the biggest difference. Your going to recieve a lot more coverage than a Juliet or R2. I e read members wear the R1 without nose rubbers for comfort and it doesn't sacrifice coverage. You can always change the tightness of the ear stems by switching the shox as you already know. I guess you can say closer to the badman orbitals fit.
