Thanks! (should be around 200-250 GBP)



HD598's. They have the "Right" amount of bass + super comfy.

I have te beyer t5p and sometimes they're not that comfortable but I can do 3+ hours easy... I guess I just need to get the right clamp and positioning.

Beyerdynamic DT770 Pro's.

 

Very, very comfy. I frequently put them through 4+ hours of use, and they never get uncomfortable. They also have a pretty laid-back top end, so their sound lends itself well to long listening sessions.

 

The bass isn't super tight (well, it's pretty tight when amped properly), but I don't find it to be overwhelming. Some folks say they are absolute bass monsters, but I don't hear it. I've heard many headphones that have much more bass.

Even though Bose Headphones are the greatest SQ wise (they dont sound like trash though, dont get me wrong), they are damnnnnn comfy. my 558's are pretty comfy as well... I just wish they were more portable

The few Bose sets I've tried on have all been very comfortable, but I can't speak for their sound quality.  The AKG K550 and various forms of Beyerdynamic DT770 seem like they might be right up your alley.

Beyer DT990s here - most comfortable thing i've ever worn.

 

A mate who's a DJ pointed out his Senn HD25-1-II's are 140grams :O

My friends Koss Porta Pros are comfy :s 

(I kind of posted in the wrong place and just made something up, I can't stand them on my head)

"Right" amount of bass is certainly subjective. I would say bass light on the 598's. But they are super comfy though :-)
