For detail retrieval I'd take the DT880. For musicality and enjoyment I'd take HD600

Are they considered 'flat' and ideal for studio monitoring and mixing?

HD650/HD6xx isn't as ideal as the HD600 for monitoring. But they are good.

I'll put my vote on the HD600.

The DT880 are more comfortable than the Sennheiser HD600 imho.. Also the DT880 can be quite musical when paired with the right amp / warmer vintage gear or OTL tube amp such as my DV336SE make it sound very good.

I debated between the HD600 and DT880 for awhile some time ago now.. I don't regret the DT880 choice .. at all.. I really hate double entry cables and the clamping force of the Senn's personally.

Amp choice can really make or break the experience with the DT880's however.
