Don't let me buy these, need help with lightweight suggestions (around ear headphones)

    I need some suggestions for around ear headphones. I just purchased the ATH- M50s from Audio Technica a couple days ago, but I don't find them very comfortable.
    What I am using them for:
    - Listening for long hours
    - Small amounts of video editing (less important to my purchase)

    What I am looking for:
    - lightweight (less than 9 oz)
    - good sound
    - durable, good build quality

    My price range is 100-250 dollars, most comfortable with the price of the M50s.

    I found the bose ae2's extremely comfortable, and they are on the top of my list so far

    They aren't too heavy?

    Oh no, they are known for being one of the most comfy headphones ever made. I have the DT880 and have worn them for 8 hours straight with no discomfort.

    Haven't heard them. But, they have a nice bass thump and are a good all-rounder for music.
