Cold ears

I don't know about you guys but the thing that I hate the most about riding in cold weather (coming soon) is my ears getting frozen. It's just painful and so annoying that it could make me want to stop riding this winter. My hairstyle right now is spikey so I don't want to wear any kind of head wear that will cover my ears but also mess up my hairstyle. And I also, like to listen to music when I ride and the earphones seem like they might become a nuisance with ear mugs. So here is the solution:

Stereo ear warmers!

Though they cost $40 on the website, they are $29.99 at Sports Chalet.

How about one of these? This is a Canadian website, but I'm sure you can find at least some of these options locally.

I find that when my ears get cold, my forehead is also suffering, so I just use an ear band from Pearl Izumi. If fits with or without a helmet, and can also cover prt of the back for the neck with can also get cold.

With the weather change here in Chicago, mine will be getting lots of use!
