I just got the HD 58x literally just a few days ago because i couldn't wait for the 6XX drop now i want these too ! and decide which ones to keep after i try both , lol.
58X has more clarity, but 6XX has more musicality. It's kind of hard to explain, but the 58Xs sound a lot more crisp and dynamic, while the 6XXs sound more smooth and relaxed. They both have their advantages, and unfortunately it's hard to recommend one over the other to someone who hasn't tried both.
The 6XXs in particular seem to be a "love or hate" type of deal, so if you love their sound signature it's hard to beat them. Plus since they have an impedance of 300 ohms it's hard to get their proper sound to shine with no amplifier set up. The 58Xs on the other hand sound super boomy out of the box, but once burn in sets in they sound great and can easily punch above their price range. 58X's might be better if you don't have a proper audio setup, but if you do have one or are planning to get one I'd go with the 6XXs.
In order, I prefer 600>6xx>58x. 600 has perfect balance between detailed and smooth, 6xx are a bit less detailed but smoother and easier to listen to, 58x seem very detailed for their price but very papery sound signature and seemed to me the least enjoyable. Also the boominess mentioned above ruins the 58x for me on some songs.
