DXOMARK announced tonight that Apple’s iPhone 14 Plus scored a total of 141 points in its audio test, placing it 12th in the global rankings.
Officials say the differences between this model and the rest of the iPhone 14 series are minimal, with very similar audio performance in both playback and recording tests.
DXOMARK says the iPhone 14 Plus has good overall tone and dynamics and performs well when recording loud sounds like concerts. Wind noise reduction needs some fine-tuning, but the results are satisfactory. On the downside, midrange reproduction is context-dependent and can sound tinny depending on the app and use case. The signal-to-noise ratio could be adjusted higher, as the main vocal content is masked by ambient noise, and the audio zoom performance is poor.
