Okay......... I'm going to bite the bullet & get these.........
My curiousness has gotten the better of me & I need to compare these to my original pair of HD 565 Ovation's that I've had for 25+ years. My memory of the original 580 Jubilee's is that they didn't offer that much of an improvement over the 565's when the difference in price was taken into account. The original HD 580 Jubilee's were listed at $450 although they could be found for cheaper.
What really has me curious are the spec changes. Frequency response is the same but Sensitivity (97dB to 104 dB) & Impedance (300 Ohms to 150 Ohms) have changed. I'll report on my findings.

I have my original pair of HD 565 Ovation's also still. I have the HD 580's also. I like them better than the 565. I just bought the 6XX on the last drop and it is shipping earlier I found out from an email today on Aug. 10. I am quite curious as to the HD 58X 's sound also.

Which 580's do you have? The original, the Precision or the Jubilee?
I bought my 565's as they were being closed out so the price difference between them & the 580 was significant. I remember the 580's offering the same basic sound signature with a little more extension in the treble. I want to say that it was either the original 580 or the Precision model that I reviewed the 565 against. The Jubilee was the best of the 580's but I still remember the 600 as offering a significant improvement over them. It's been a long time but that's what I remember.
I'm hoping that based on CEE_TEE's description, the 58X is a poor man's 660s!

The Precision with the DSP Pro digital sound processor module which I bought new when they were being closed out for $120. When I bought the 6xx I thought what if they offer the 58X next for $150 lol. However I also have a Hifiman 400i which I like a lot . I was surprised by CEE_TEE's description making the 58X sound better than the 6xx.

Hi I have the HD 580 Precision not the 58x . The 400i are great & I think a little bit better than the HD 580 Precision though they seem very equal in sound quality. I am waiting to receive the 6xx from the recent drop.

I seems like the 58x is better from the descriptions.
