For Canadians...

SONY WH-1000XM4
Normally CDN$500, but is now on sale for CDN$379 (24% drop) on electronicsforless.ca
You could try price matching with Visions, for extra 15% off the difference, meaning 500-379=121 (*1.15=139.15 off). So 500-139.15=$360.85 in total.
This deal is not bad, considering these sold for CDN$350 during Christmas time, from Nov 22, 2020 - Jan 7, 2021.

Amir's review.
update: I think I missed the deal since it was posted 6hrs ago, and now it's showing 'out of stock'.

Etymotic ER2SE cheaper still... $49 on Adorama now.

Thank you for this. I can't believe I got these for $53 shipped (including taxes). I've been meaning to get my Ears Raped (props to @oluvsgadgets for the awsome quip in one of his YouTube videos) for a while, I will get some whiskey in preparation for the ordeal.

I am curious if anyone is using room virtualization or speaker simulation (basically crossfeed) plugins with these to simulate soundstage. Something like bs2b (Bauer Stereo To Binaural). Some folks swear by that sort of effect, but I wonder if it would be detrimental to sound quality.

Also thanks to @JohnYang1997, Oluv, and the other folks who have been expounding the virtues of these. Actually I appreciate soundstage a lot (plus accurate and open presentation and detail), so it will be interesting if I will be able to make these work with the aforementioned plugins, or maybe with that tip (pun intended) in that other forum consisting of cutting the stem of an Etymotic tri-flange and extending the sound nozzle of the Etymotic to place it 3 or 4 mm further from the eardrum. Some people claimed this trick offered shocking improvement in the soundstage.

The Cleer Flow 1 ANC Over Ear Bluetooth Headphones are on deal of the day sale at B&H for $50 with 2 day shipping. Originally $200-250, they have above average noise cancellation and (imho) sound quality for a Bluetooth ANC. They were on sale for $70 in early march with a brief discussion in this thread. There are a lot of reviews available including this. Note these are the Flow originals (1) not the Flow 2.

Cleer is owned by the large Chinese OEM who also manufactures JBL over ears, and are most similar in construction/sound to the Everest 700 series, with perhaps a bit less bass.

JBL SUB 550P is frequent on sale for US$190 (regular US$600), so you can figure out the pricing for the rest, by subtracting that first.
While I know it's not going to shake the house down to 10Hz, I wish I could find cea-2010 results on the 550p. Mine go down to about 30-35Hz according to audyssey. While that's not too impressive, from what I've seen, there really isn't anything better under or around $200usd. It's usually boomy chuffing fart boxes in this price range.

I do have to thank you though. I'm really happy with the sb2000pro I picked as a result of researching to your sub spreadsheet. Thanks!
