Get the Honig’s mask...it’s huge and throw on a 6” throat guard as an attachment.

I endorse @acpar72‘s recommendation – the Honig’s K4 mask addresses exactly what you’re after. It’s large, with oversized ear guards, deep half-sphere profile, a discreet extended crown guard, and a broad squared extended chin guard that makes attachment of nearly any dangling throat guard easy.

The other route to consider is a catcher’s mask, most of which have oversized ear guards and deep half-sphere profiles. The Easton Speed Elite might be a good candidate, but it doesn’t have much of a chin guard because the amateur catchers who use it either attach dangling throat guards, or don’t want a chin guard getting in the way when they drop their chin. Another candidate is the All-Star FM25, especially if you get it in the Titanium version.

I would also say the Diamond iX3 would work as well. Just a matter of which one you get. Because if you order the one with the lesser pads, the should be upgraded.

I've had the Honig's cage for about 4 years now and love it.  I wear a 7 3/4 - 7 7/8 hat so I have a big melon and I've never had any issues with this mask.  Be sure to add the Team Wendy pads.  The 6" throat guard is also a great idea as mentioned above - @acpar72
