With the first "cold" couple of days this week I remember why I hate wearing a headband under my helmet.  I just get too warm.   I don't like busting out a full head covering under the helmet until it is in the teens.  

Can anyone recommend a set of ear warmers that just wrap around the back of the head without needing a full head wrap around?  I believe that 180s makes them but I don't know specifically what kind, or if they are conducive to cycling.

I've had good luck wearing standard 180s under my helmet. REI sells something called ear bags, which are exactly as their name sugests, bags that just fit around your ears with an elastic band. Years ago at a LBS in Iowa I saw something called dog ears which were ear warmers attached that attached to your helmet straps.

I picked up something like the 180s from Walgreens for about $5 last year and they work well for me.

180s work for me on or off the bike.  I try to avoid any 'bike only' clothing other than a helmet and open finger gloves.

I love 180s.

I had never heard of a 180.  If you want to google it, make sure you put in 180 helmet and ears.  I did just 180 and helmet and nothing relevant came up.

They are called 180s. The s is part of the branding. Typing in "180s" in Google gave the expected result.

and then post the picture so we all can see...

I like the 180s exolite cause they're thin enough that the top edge can tuck under my helmet.  They don't look like they'd be warm, but they're awesome!

Thanks everyone.  It seems the 180's are the big winner here.  I must now search for a bargain price!  

Another one for 180s - I wear them from ~40F until it gets cold enough that I want to cover my head. If you get a little over-warm, it's easy to pull them off the back of your head without removing your helmet, and wrap them around your stem or something.
