    Up for loaner again. You all know the drill:
    • Friends only, contributors case-by-case
    • Impressions required (will get around to posting an impressions thread for HD580)
    • 5 days per person
    A somewhat off-topic note: from what I gather @ext1 says the JAR HD580 will be somewhat readily-available. Probably not as much as the HD600/650 though; if interested please PM him.

    Interested, SF Bay Area. Time to see if my 6XX needs to be upgraded to one of these. :)

    Interested, Portland Oregon. I’d love to compare the JAR 580 to my lightly modded 580, which has become my reference sound.

    650 would be great. Blew my wad on aeolus and never heard or bought a pair yet unfortunately.

    This is what I was thinking. However, I am open to separating the units if the community desires so.

    If either one of these needs to return to the KR mothership, they can go through me in Taiwan via my US forwarder. Otherwise, my interest is only moderate and not high enough to specifically request an Asian detour. Thanks!

    I only heard the JAR600 but very curious of these and have plenty of other headphones around to compare with. :)

    If this is still a thing I would like to be added since I have 600/650/JAR600 to compare to.

    @Clemmaster, PM me your address and I'll get this started. I've held onto these too long.

    Got these yesterday.

    So those coming after don’t get surprised: these come disassembled (2x headbands , 4x headphone cups) with no cables.

    I now have the HD660S, my own JAR650 (which appears to be an older revision) and the new JAR650 / JAR580.
    This is gonna be fun!

    The JAR mod should work on the HD58X and HD660S also - any experimentation on that front?

    It works in theory for the 660S too but the parts need to be modified to fit. And it should be tuned too because I don’t think the 660S driver would like being dampened on top. So I haven’t worked on it yet.

    It should also work with a 58X too but I would rather have it working on a 580/600/650 ;)

    One of the black piece in the back of the JAR580 is half coming off.
    It looks like the glue came off. The other half of the piece is still glue so it's holding but I'm not sure for how long?
