I had both but my old 580's finally died so I can't remember in comparison to the 600. I am very happy with the 600 though. It is similar to the 580 as far as I remember.
In the UK it's difficult to find 580's now so I just decided on the 600. According to experts, it's slightly better and I definately find it less bassy than the 650 which I also have. I find it to be a very even sounding headphone with not too much emphasis in any particular region, which for some people may mean 'bland'.
My favourite headphone. If the price difference in USA isn't much, just as a placebo, I'd get the 600!!
