Well consider this...there's a reason it's an official XB1 controller and it's 19.48. Which is to say, obviously LOTS of people care. Shoot even myself, I've done stuff like taken a sharpie to the controller's lights in the past because it was too distracting. I think if t his specific controller was a lot brighter (like a hot pink) it would definitely be distracting. Granted, I have better than average vision so that may be a factor who knows...but still... Similarly, people care about all kinds of things that others may scoff at like the condition of the cases for their $5 used games, etc.
Distracting? You keep your controller in your field of vision? The only annoying controller I've ever owned was an old Gamecube Afterglow that literally lit my entire room up red at night.
