But that's just it, most people aren't aware of the differences outside of color. Case in point - I had to pretty much be my own guinea pig and test out the white version myself to confirm/deny the rumors of a rubberized cable and any possible benefits it brings. Not only that, but I ended up also discovering that the stock tips seemed softer - something nobody had ever mentioned. (the pink IEMs have the same rubberized cable and softer stock tips) And that was 18 months ago, yet since then there have still been many people elsewhere on the internets that still complain about that fabric cord and to a lesser extent the crappy stock tips without any awareness of the alternative... I don't mean to sound nagging, but it just pains me to see it happening on such a surprisingly wide scale.
