X-A7 video sound quality

I got a used X-A7 and though there are aspects of the camera that I really like, I'm struggling with the video sound. I've tried different video settings (high def seems not to record audio at all: ??) but it seems to have very poor responsiveness at high frequencies: everything I've recorded sounds muffled, like I'm talking through a sweatshirt. This is indoors, no other big sounds to interfere. The mike openings are not obstructed. I did factory reset & updated firmware.

My Android phone (4 yrs old) takes better videos with less fuss, which is puzzling.

Are there settings I should be playing with, or is the sound just poor on this model? thank you.
