I wear a ski helmet that's rated for cycling. The helmet has removable, super warm ear covers that have kept my ears warm each winter for the past several years. It means having 2 helmets but snuggly warmth is worth it.
I have a fleece headband I wear under my helmet. Keeps my ears warm, and I can still hear.

Today I went for a ride, and the wind was really whipping. I was comfortable except my ears. They weren't too cold, but it felt like someone drove a rod into each of them. I tried moving my jaw around, wondering if it had something to do with pressure, but that didn't seem to do much. The pain is slightly behind and below each ear. I never had this problem when the weather was nicer.
