Which is better for a speedlight softbox-the xs LiteDome or xs OctoDome?

The extra small OctoDome & extra small LiteDome are both nice light sources, but the OctoDome offers one more level of diffusion, with an extra interior baffle. The Octodome also gives a wider light spread & round catch lights in the eyes. The LiteDome is lighter and a little more compact. The OctoDome is a heavier duty more heat resistant fabric, as it is also used for strobes with modeling lights & can withstand up to 500 watts of tungsten continuous light. If the LiteDome is used with the dome diffuser from your shoe flash, it can increase its diffused effect.
