Really? Is this what you have heard or was this first hand experience? I want to see some user reviews before I plunge in.

Judging from this, it's probably first hand experience

OK, so apparently the goggles I had weren't the final version.

Here's one important update:

The ears are connected at the bottom to the actual mask. That means when you remove the lens, there are only 2 pieces: the mask (complete with ears and strap) and the lens. That's it.

Hopefully, I'll be able to answer more about ventilation, breathability and communication in the next week or so.

I'm hearing about a 50/50 split on people liking them vs not liking them. Hopefully I can still get my hands on one to check out and write up a review on. Kind of excited to check these out, more options are never a bad thing!

The production ones have a screw/insert that comes on them at the bottom of the ear piece. It's the same one used to hold the ears onto the strap. Mine came with one screw/insert up on the strap/lens hook, one on the lower most point of the ear attaching it to the mask. It seems like a bit of a after thought but overall I'm really liking the mask. Im sure a couple velcro pieces would solve all problems with the ears if you had any. Living in the northwest the lack of venting on the top of the frame should help on rainy day's. The foam is thinner then other brands but is a different density that feels very comfortable. Breathability is good, small amount of reverb while yelling but overall pretty damn good for a first gen mask.

Wore them this weekend. Very comfy, breathes great, no echo and you're able to hear everything. I wore them for about 8 points during the finals and had no honest complaints. Overall a great mask IMPO.

Profits were super comfy but hearing in them was horrible and breathing in them was even worse for me.

I just replaced my profits with these. Couldn't hear anything and felt like I was suffocating....

Just picked mine up from HB. Very light, breathable, and easy to hear/be heard.
