More light headsets, sorted by the latest model first:

The WF-1000X is a noise-insulated Bluetooth headset that fronts an adaptive sound control feature (which adjusts ambient sound filtering according to the user's environment and activity), but -- like most cord-free models -- balances this out with a less-than-spectacular 3-hour working time (9-hour, if the wireless charging case is fully used).

Sony WF-1000X

Special features: Ambient Sound Mode, Smart Listening by Adaptive Sound Control (automatically detects user activity and adjusts ambient sound settings to it)
The BT2047 is a light mono Bluetooth headset weighing just about 0.34 ounces and one of the thinnest at 16 mm, sports a maximum of eight paired devices and it can also connect to two devices simultaneously with Multiuse.

Jabra Mono Bluetooth Headset

Special features: Auto-pairing at 1st time start-up, Microphone HS distortion <5%,
The Q5 is a Bluetooth headset that guns for the cord-free market by having to rely mostly on its noise and echo-cancellation feature and integrated voice prompt function (which aren't that uncommon, by the way), as its 2-hour talk time and 3-hour playback time are undoubtedly worrisome.

SmartOmi Q5

The CF8001 is a mono Bluetooth headset that charges via a magnetic USB charger, giving the user a maximum 8-hour talk time, a 6-hour playback time at 50 percent volume, and 170 hours of stand-by -- all of which are decent values for a cord-free device.

ENACFIRE CF8001

The Boom 2 is a classic mono Bluetooth headset with NFC, that features one of the lightest weight (at nine grams), a just-below-average talk time of six hours (15 minutes of charge provide 2.5 hours of use).

Motorola Boom 2

The Xperia Ear is a lightweight IPX2-rated Bluetooth headset with an app for Android phones called the Assistant app (to ask, command, and monitor everyday tasks), a motion control feature (yes/no through head movements), a charging case (good for at least three charges), and a rather brief 4-hour playback time.

Sony Xperia Ear

Special features: Equipped with motion controls (nod to say yes, shake for no), replaceable button behaviors, 8 voice interaction languages (English (UK), English (US), German, French, Spanish, Italian, Russian, Japanese), and has balanced armature drivers
The Mini is a long-range (It operates at a maximum distance of 60ft from the paired device) cord-free Bluetooth headset that comes with a 2000mAh charging case that gives it a 6-hour working time -- extending the 1-hour battery life that it originally holds from a single charge.

Airmate Mini

The S10 is a compact truly-wireless Bluetooth headset equipped with noise and echo-cancelling capabilities and an inductive-magnet wireless charging system which provides it with enough power for 200 hours of stand-by and eight hours of talk time, both of which are below the category average, but are reasonable as far as cord-free Bluetooth headsets are concerned.

Dabs Audio S10

The Apico is a mini lightweight Bluetooth headset for the right ear, offering fairly typical features like voice prompts, multipoint (up to two devices), and a 4-hour playback from 1.5 hours of charging.

Avantree Apico

Special features: Only for the right ear
The G10 is a lightweight 0.13-ounce Bluetooth headset whose 5-hour minimum working time is impressive for a cord-free device, but lacks features (that are mostly common among other models) like noise cancellation and/or an audio-enhancing technology.

GoNovate G10

The K asq is an IP55-rated cord-free Bluetooth headset which lasts for a relatively-long 5-hour usage time on its own (plus eight hours from the charging case), boasts a unit-lost alarm system, and comes in two color themes, with colors like orange for sports, and light blue for the city style.

PKparis K asq

Special features: Alert music in case of loss, Patented Anti-fall System
The Mini is a small mono Bluetooth headset with Clear and Crystal Voice technology that sports equally-small-value specs as its music playback time and talk time are both far below average values at 3.5 hours and 4 hours, respectively.

Firegram Mini

The G9 is an affordable mono Bluetooth headset designed to appear low-key, that disables its flashing status LED once paired successfully, strangely designed to be only worn on the user's right ear, and only delivering a below average 3-hour usage after its 2-hour charging time.

GoNovate G9

Special features: Once the headset is paired it will stop flashing its LED to remain discreet
The D900 Mini is a cord-free Bluetooth headset that boasts of a lightweight 1-gram body and audio-enhancing features like Bass enhance technology and Low-frequency balanced technology, while sporting a maximum talk time of 14 hours (when used with the charging box).

Syllable D900 Mini

Special features: Bass enhance technology, Privacy call design, DSP control system, Low-frequency balanced technology
