I, too seemed to be best fit with the Shoei helmet. My head is more oval than round (bird's eye view looking down).
And I too was looking for a modular helmet. I said it a thousand times- don't bother looking at helmets with plastic latching hardware (the latch itself, not the buttons that move the latch). In a face plant, you want all the strength possible to keep that chin bar closed.
Anyway, the Shoei Multitec was the only modular I could get on my head. I previously had an HJC 3/4 helmet in XXL. With the Shoei, I stepped down to an XL size Multitec. That XXL was way too big for me.
It fits very well from top to bottom. Nolan, Schuberth, and the other metal latching modulars would not work, some I couldn't even get over my head in their largest sizes. The Schuberth felt like I was being strangled around the neck. Skinny little Euro riders...
