LED with softbox options?

I love using a couple of softbox lights for interviews, but the 600 LED lights I picked up to test (from some China seller) don't have soft box options to work with them, and I find the light too harsh for interviews. I've tried other diffusion methods, but really just miss my softboxes.

Anyone have any suggestions for LED lights with softboxes? I'm willing to start over and buy some new lights. I know Cool Lights has an offering, anything else to look at?

Or with LEDs is there a different diffusion technique I should be considering?

I'm ready to put some real money into my light kit.

I use a Cineroid daylight balanced LED in my Westcott Apollo 28" & ORB soft boxes.
