shell sizes for helmets.

I was just wondering which brands have a smaller shell size for their helmets.
i have a small body and dont really want to look like a bobble head when i wear one...

Right now im looking at:
KBC vr-1,
Icon mainframe,
Hjc ac12, and
shoei rf1000.

can anyone tell me which one has a smaller outer shell size out of these? thx
(im considering either small or med)

also, when i put on a rf1000 small, it fits my head snug and comfortable, but i feel like im ripping off my ears from the top when i try to get my head in the helmet.
does this mean i need a bigger size?
(my ears protrude foward a lil bit :P)

It might just mean you have a different head shape than is normal for Shoei. Here's a good article on shape (and size). The helmets can vary within a manufacturer's line across different models so try and try again should be the order of the day. I'd start with the budget in mind and then look at what falls into it, trying all the models in that range.
