Vents Lens and events question

Hey guys. So i got my avatar vents and its got the black lens on them. I'm confused on what the difference is with the tints. Like the firey type and see through. Is that just if you want it darker.. or lighter.. or ... I'm confused.. hah. It seems that the stock lens are a little darker.. and kinda hard to see because of the darkness. Should I change to the clear ones? Also, whats the difference between Events and avatars.. they look the same.

Lens tint is mostly personal preference, but there are a few advantages to each: Amber lenses filter out harsh blues, raising the contrast and making it easier to see movement, but they only work well in bright light. Smoke and mirror lenses are good for very bright conditions, because they darken everything. Clear lenses are good for indoor and dark fields because they let more light through. It all depends on what you need it for, and what look you're going for.

Amber / yellow is for low light conditions aswell
Clear is for indoor / mid light conditions
Smoke & mirror are for bright light
Ninja Lense is for intense bright light (its essentially a smoke, just alot darker)

Differences between e-vents and avatars, is e-vents have soft ears, avatars are probably softer abit, but not much. And the jewels are different, the E-vents have Empire logos, the Avatars have Vents logos.
