Example if I bought the Shure from there, with shipping and a discount code it would still be at least $10 cheaper than buying from Bestbuy.

Thanks.
1. Westone is the more general purpose IEM, it'll do the job for most parts, but it's still a low end balanced armature IEM, which usually can't cover the frequencies very well. The MC5 is great if you're a keen and analytical listener, but sounds extremely boring to everyone else

2. I haven't bought from them, but they are a reputable site. You can try Soundearphones.com as well
