Need recommendation for a round head helmet

I have just got a bike yesterday and getting ready to commute to work. Now the only problem is finding a helmet that would actually fits my head! Have tried Bell Triton and Ghisallo which was supposed to be pretty large helmet, but I could still feel pressured on the side of my head. I guess my head is wider than normal people. Would really appreciate any recommendation if you land into the same situation, so I could call around the LBS in my area to try on different helmets.

Giro E2 fit my roundish head the best. Bell always had a pressure point on the top of my noggin.

I guess my head is too big on the side Went to try Giro E2, Xen, Eclipse at LBS and all still feel cramped on the side. So far Bell Triton fits the best, then Giro Xen. But with both my head is still not touching the top of the helmet, so I really don't know which helmet to get

Just went through this myself. I found for my big meat head that the Louis Garneau fit the best for width and comfort. I am not sure what model it was but it was only $49. The XL fit like a glove.
