It is become a common knowledge that ads with blended color with background will have more CTR and it is encouraged by Google itself.
In this case, all text adsense should have white background, sometimes I see adsense ads with red and brown background, that make it harder to read.
Hunbpages uses the services of Yieldbuild.com which actually rotates ads and maximizes CTR, so instead of relying on "common knowledge" they actually test and optimize based on real data.
But sometimes I see the ads have dark brown color and black title, that make it a bit hard to read.
I agree about the ads that is too well blended, I read it somewhere that for white background pages it is good to have white colored ads with red title and black for the text.
Remember, what may be hard to read for you may be perfect for another user's eyes. A lot of factors go into what is "readable" by an individual, including monitor settings, eye health and vision clarity, color scheme preferences on a user by user level, and general placement of the ads in relation to other colors.
I actually have been pleasantly surprised to see that the ads on some of my hubs match the colors of the pictures I have placed on my hub.

I'm sure I'm not alone in this. When I open a page I do not want it to start talking to me or playing music unless I press play. I really hate those adverts that are like a TV advert and appear on the page, and start...

There is currently a problem with the display of AdSense ads across HubPages. We are investigating the issue, and hope to have ads working again soon.
