First, there are variations from Gen 1 Titanium to Gen 2 Titanium (just as there was a significant evolution of Plasma which originally began as a bone color before evolving to its current, essentially, silver) but in either generation the finish of Titanium seems more Matte to the glossier silver that Plasma has become; with Plasma, scratches show up REALLY easily while on Titanium they do not. Titanium is not only a much darker silver, it has a very industrial look to it. For lack of a better descriptor, Titanium is a cross between the X Metal finish and the later Plasma finish. Gen 1 is almost exclusively a collector’s piece at this point because of the peeling issues, but Gen 2 (which are the 2 frames I own) fixed that issue without losing most of the uniqueness of the finish.
