I've never owned Stellia, but I have owned Elear, Elex, and Clear. I found all these to be comfortable and reasonable weight. Not quite "plush" level due to the pads not being "pillow thick" (think Audeze). Also the clamp force is a bit noticeable since the ear cup openings aren't huge, when wearing glasses and listening for extended periods I would get a bit of discomfort eventually due to the pressure onto my glasses' frame. But all around very wearable headphones. The Verite is very comfortable, the clamp force can be adjusted to be mild enough not to bother me much even while wearing glasses, and the headband can be adjusted to a point where I have no hot spots on my head. While my pair (Cocobolo, 553g) is a bit heavier than the Focal Stellia (435g), the silk Verite is only 420g. The Cocobolo is already comfortable and I think if I shaved ~130g off the weight moving to the silk wood, I would barely notice they are on my head. *edit: The Stellia has leather pads and they do appear thicker/plusher than the Elear/Elex/Clear pads that I was comparing to.
