Light weight headphones


I have Audeze LCD-X I've used with an Ayre Codex DAC for Roon.  The sound is good, but I find the phones uncomfortably heavy.  Recommendations for fine sounding phones with less weight would be appreciated.

I’ve got the HIFIMAN HE400S and find them to be very neutral and open sounding.  There’s a review of the LCD-X on headphones.com that compares them to to the HIFIMAN Ananda (a couple models up from mine) and finds them pretty comparable sonically, and at around 400g they’re almost 40% lighter than the Audeze.  As a bonus they’re “only” $700 but can be had open box for $600.  The Arya would be the next step up at about double the price.  Hope this helps. 
The most comfortable headphones I own (I have about 10 or 12) are my Sennheiser / Drop HD6XX - https://drop.com/buy/massdrop-sennheiser-hd6xx.  Changing out the earpads can make them even more comfortable.  Not just comfortable, but lots of bang for the buck.  Maybe not quite on the same level as the LCD-X in terms of detail and bass quality/quantity (I have the LCD-XC, but haven't heard the LCD-X), but very easy to listen to.

If your budget is higher and you like the Audeze sound, check out the Sony MDR-Z1R.  They give my LCD-4 a run for the money in terms of bass and sound quality and are a lot more comfortable.
I forgot to mention, the Sennheiser HD800 are also super comfortable, and more refined sounding than the 600 series variants.  I haven't heard the HD800s, which are supposed to be tuned a little "darker" than the HD800, but the HD800 are a different sound signature than the Audeze house sound, more neutral and detailed.  Some like it, some find it a little too "analytical".  I think they are great sounding headphones.
Meze Empyrean. I even pass out in bed with them on. Very light an comfortable.
ERA-1s are 2/3 the weight.
Might not be light enough for you.
Out of the dozen I own the best to have on your head is the AKG 240 .
Light with good sound , not much money, and they still sell well 
after 30 years

On my head right now .
I have both the Audeze LCD-XC and Stax 009s. Both are heavy, which is the main reason for my short listening sessions. If I could find phones that sounded as good but were lighter, I'd be interested. I have owned lighter headphones but I'm just not comfortable with the tradeoff in sound quality.
Sennheiser HD600.  if you listen to classic music. Very lite , neutral, and comfortable. Pair with tube amp and it sounds heavenly.
