Just two simple buttons options.
I was wondering if someone could give a few ideas on how to add more depth, they seem flat to me.

Hmm, I share your doubts about flatness. I guess the left button simply lacks color variety. The right one is considerably better in those terms, although here's something you could use for inspiration regarding that bulb in the middle. Also, should the outer red ring be indented or extruded towards the background? It isn't clear if its bottom shadow/bevel should go to the outside or the inside.
Hey @Jona thanks for your feedback.
The outer red ring should be extruded and the chromesque ring should be inset but also extruded. The whole bevel thing is a bit of a mystery to me.
Great!! @Nathan Powell
More pronounced shadows would probably be a first step. Also, if the spinned aluminum is suppose to be lower in depth than the red ring and red bulb, you might want to experiment with making it less bright as it battles for depth in that way. Try adding a subtle inner shadow to it, maybe?
Something in a similar vein of this: http://goo.gl/9oEB9 (obviously, I didn't have the original so I just whipped this up in a second)
@Jay Phelps thanks for your thoughts jay. I'll try out your suggestions and see what happens.
I think @Jona's example for the middle bulb is much better.
@Jay Phelps ye, it's already sitting back further. I was convinced that the main problem was the chrome, but I can see now that it's the bulb also. I wanted the bulb to be subdued, but I think I've gone past subdued. :)

I finally got around to bettering the original buttons, thanks to @Jona and @Jay Phelps for your great feedback. I feel the depth is a lot better now.
