Default Good goggles for Arcane 2.0 470nm 4W+ laser

Okay, after much consideration I decided to buy a Arcane 2.0 470nm 4W+ laser from Sci-Fi Lasers. They got a good reputation and seem to have a great quality for a decent price.

The problem is the required protection. I searched and read many posts here in the forum and the more I read the more cunfused I got.

What I understand so far is the OD and the CE rating. I surely want high quality, so I decided to get some CE certified goggles. Nothing extreme expensive (maybe up to 100€), but nothing cheap either.

If I understand correctly, blue lasers do not emmit IR wavelengths, only the green ones, right? So the range 190-540 nm should be fine? Has anyone measured the Arcane 2.0 for IR output?

If I have a 5W laser, the OD calc results a minimum of OD4, but this seems too small. (https://www.lia.org/evaluator/od.php)

I think a OD between 5 and 6 should be okay?

The Eagle Pair is often mentioned. But are they really okay?
I also read about thorlabs, cascadelaser, lasersafetyindustries, noirlaser and uvex-laservision... but I am totally unsure.

Noirlaser - ARG filter (315-532 DIRM LB6 with VLT of 48%)
ARG

They seem to offer a high protection, but isn't OD7 a bit too much?

What is your experience? Any recommendations?
Thank you for your help in advance.

LG Cres

Thanks for the reply.

Something like a ARG-60 fitover frame would have been nice, but 50$ for a convincing protection is better than having a cooler look.

Looking at their site we see OD 4+ and not 6.Is it something different?

"These goggles have exceptional visible light transmission (rated at 50%) and yet protect to a level of OD 4+ (reduce the intensity of 190-540nm laser light by a factor of 10,000 or more), and are CE certified".
