Didn't know gaming headsets could perform like that. These will probably replace my JBL.

Hey, second that. The Kraken's a pretty good headphone, I have to say. I got the Kraken Pro for about $55 on sale.
I could say they're basshead-worthy, but "incredibly clear and accurate sound"? Nah, that's what the Krakens definitely cannot do. Their bass is powerful, digs down deep, and rattles the cans themselves, but is incredibly bloated in the upper bass region. However, I do have to say that the Krakens respond very well to equalization. With a simple upper-bass reduction, you could really feel the sub-bass in there. Honestly, I've never heard basshead stuff, but the Kraken sure is.
Add it to the list, I say!
