Good helmet for a conehead?

So I thought about thinking about getting a helmet for my longish head. I have tried on most of the smith line and used to have a protec. They all sit way to high on my head and the ear flaps kind of sit too far back, as in the front edge of my ear almost sticks out. Basically I end up with a huge chunk of forehead exposed to the elements and major windage on the ears. Thinking something similar to the bern liner would solve the problem, but I havent been able to try those on yet, but I don't think they would be deep enough either.
Any recommendations from people with similar problems?

I'm in the same boat. The Sandbox skate style (I think it's called Classic) is what I use, and it fits great.

Thanks I'll check it out.
Thought someone else out there must have a longish head, obviously not a full on conehead. A head that looks normal enough till a helmet sits on it then they all sit too high.

haha good thread, i have a bit of a cone head due to birthing mishap (won't get into it haha), and i have the same problem with certain brands sitting too high. I have found giro helmets to be by far the most comfortable, and i'm on my second encore 2 dome and see no reason to switch.

I have a large pointy head as well, and my giro fits great.
