The krakens are just very big, not saying they are bad since I have used the Normal Krakens before. They just aren't very mobile due to the fact they don't fold up. But I use the ATH-M40x which is just basically more neutral version of the ATH-M50x and weighs less. I picked up the M40x around $100 on amazon and it does well, its outlasted every single pair of headphones I have ever owned though. Still the truth is that you might want to try them first before deciding. Even try some other pairs of headphones or some good earbuds, like the H3 ANC I use outside the house.
