Sony A7IV vs A7III - Difference in sound from external mic

Hi, I have just bought new Sony A7IV and I'm testing it out. I have noticed, that sound recorded from external microphones sounds different than on Sony A7III. I think it's worse on A7IV as there is less low tones in the voice. What's more, I also noticed, that audio level indicator almost never shows sound clipping. Even if both mic gain and "Audio Rec Level" in camera are set to max. Why? On A7III it shows clipping almost all the time if I set exact same settings.

Here is the video where you can see, that A7IV indicator doesn't show clipping (with comparison to A7III):

And here is sound comparison between two cameras:
