This is my recollection, as well, except I recall they were made for Ernie Else. Shorter blade length, but thicker proportions with more bounce. All the Titleist blades from this series (670,680,690)

Biggest difference right off is the 690 has pronounced offset in the long irons that the 670 won’t have.

I seem to remember that the 670s were the smallest-headed, least-offset blade they made. 680s had more bounce, and then the dot version of the 690s were stock with 2* upright compared to the regular (non-dot) model and +1/2" (I think?)

The 690.MB were considered fairly forgiving for a blade. Slightly larger head, traditional sole width and bounce. 
 

670s were a niche blade. I think they were made for Davis Love. Small head, slightly thicker topline. Sole was a little wider with more bounce. They were made not to dig. I can’t remember if they have wooden dowels. 

 

I don’t think you will see much difference in ball flight. I would call them both mid-trajectory blades.

 

The 680 and 681 will flight a little lower.
