My only direct exposure to Audio Technica is their EM7 "premium" clip-on model, and it is much the same as the graph above. No bass (some people say this as an exaggeration, I really mean it here as in the response completely disappears below about 85Hz and is whisper weak above that), no upper treble. Just lots and lots of very colored midrange. A shame they sound so weird because the detail and attack/speed are really good. It was off putting enough to make me never try any other AT phone and I've always wondered if this is characteristic of more of their models.
