Ear sock
The ear socks are made to fit the frame tightly, so some users may find it difficult to install them to the stems.
We'd recommend to dip the ear socks in a hot water to make the material soften, then with a towel, help with your finger to install the ear socks to the stems by pushing and twisting.

Note!!!
If you screw your lenses too strong, the lenses are easy to get a distortion due to the stress by screws.
This can lead to an uncomfortable and dizzy feeling when using the X-Metal. To have a comfortable experience, please use a rubber gasket at the orbital.
Be cautious about the stress on the lenses from a strong screw pressure.
