I wear mine for the same exact reason - Protec is what I have...

I've ruptured an ear drum before just jumping off a boat and let be tell ya, it hurts like HELL! I also had a severe concussion once from a badly landed backroll to revert and ended up loosing my memory for about 4.5 days (the story actually ended up in a Wakeboarding Magazine article where I won some free swag for letter of the month!). I don't always wear a helmet now but I def do whenever I'm trying new tricks and wouldn't be ashamed at all to put one on all the time.

I have a helmet without the ear protectors. Anyone know where I can find just the ear protectors to add to the helmet or am I going to have to buy a helmet that comes with them?

Even though its not wakeboard specific its made for watersports

The reason i am gravitating towards it is it has a internal fine tune adjustment that i don't see on any other brand (not talking about the chin strap)

Thoughts?
Nice find I love that final tweak adjustment inside. I may just have to pull the trigger on that. My daughter and wife all have Bern snowboard helmets with a similar system it works great for them and really gives you a great fit. The reason I haven't pulled the trigger yet on a wake helmet is because I haven't found one that fits me properly just yet. I seem to be inbetween a medium and a large in every line I have tried.

If you have a local shop that sells the liquid force helmets, you might want to try on several Large or mediums. I found that they varied in size and after trying on about a dozen I found one that fit perfect.
