Cosy Velours Pads for Comfort
The DT 235s aren't tight at all and will do a good job of staying on your head. The ear pads are a soft velvet-like material, not leather or rubber, and they will cover your ear comfortably. Your ears might get slightly warm when you wear them. That said, they don't get sweaty like the plastic ones, and they are likely to last longer. The overall build quality is commendable. The cord is proper cord and not like a flimsy wire. If this is your first pair of Beyerdynamic headphones, get ready to become a lifelong fan.
Excellent Sound Quality
The highs are clear and crisp, the mids are solid, and a good amount of bass is delivered. They are well balanced overall without excelling in one area. So if you're looking for something heavy or light on bass, these aren't for you. Since these headphones have a sweet and clean sound, you will find it very suitable for classical music. The extended frequency range of 18-22 allows for a sound that is wide and nicely rounded.
Private Acoustic Environment
The large closed-back design allows for a booming well rounded sound experience. What is particularly notable is how little the sound bleeds; there is virtually no sound leakage even if you crank up the volume pretty high. The sound isolation is also great. When we turned the volume all the way up we literally couldn't hear any external sounds. Its private listening like you have never experienced before
