They do look a little bleh. I got red and they look like they were spray painted red as opposed to coming that way. Silly issue considering price. These are my go-to sub $20 set now.
Is the midrange/treble/soundstage pretty much the same between the two? I just got a pair of the SHE3580 and it's somewhat shocking to me how good $10 earphones can sound these days, though I have to agree the cable is bothersome.
