Decibel - Accurate db meter
Description
This tool is absolutely free. decibel meter turns your iPhone, iPad and iPod touch into a professional accurate sound meter, precisely measures the sound pressure level all around you. This extremely useful tool. Have you wondered how quiet is your room or how loud is a rock concert or sport event? decibel meter will help you answer all those right now. A decibel meter is a device which measures sound pressure to determine how intense sounds are, measuring in decibels. Decibels are a logarithmic scale based on the sensitivity of the human ear. Prolonged exposure to sounds over 85 decibels can lead to hearing loss, making measurement of decibel levels important for people who work in noisy environments so that they know when they need to protect their ears. For a frame of reference, normal conversation occurs between around 40 and 60 decibels, depending on who is talking. A firecracker is about 140 decibels, and a jackhammer runs at around 100 decibels. Musicians, mechanics, construction workers, and other people who work in loud environments can endanger their hearing, especially if they work in environments with explosives, which can generate sound waves intense enough to cause pain and immediate hearing damage. A decibel meter can indicate when sound has reached the danger zone. The decibel meter measures the sound pressure and provides a reading in decibels for the convenience of the user. Some may also provide readings in other units of measurement, depending on the uses they are intended for. Decibel meters are often designed to be portable so that people can move them around as needed, and are often hand held, although sometimes they can be part of a permanent instrument array which is designed to take continuous measurements in a given area. One application in which a decibel meter can be used is in the reinforcement of municipal codes. Many municipalities bar sounds above a certain decibel level for safety and comfort, and may have restrictions on noise during certain hours. Police officers can carry decibel meters to determine whether or not a sound is violating the noise ordinance. These devices are also used in noise pollution studies which are used to determine the impact of passing vehicles, aircraft, and other sound-generating objects on a community. The decibel meter is also used in the music industry, during recording and setting up for concerns as well as monitoring of conditions in a concert. Similarly, meters may be installed in noisy workplaces to monitor conditions, and may be designed to send out alerts when people need to wear ear protection or take other precautions to protect their hearing. These devices are also utilized in testing of hearing protection such as ear plugs and headphones, with such products coming with a decibel ratings to provide an indicator as to which settings they can and should be used in.

Reading over 100db on the bus at the moment. So, being on the bus is over the ‘dangerous’ threshold apparently
Grossly inaccurate.

I have severe hyperacusis, tinnitus & other ear problems.my tinnitus is so loud i cant accurately predict what noise level im in so I use a db meter to know when to protect & when to try cope without ear plugs etc. This app. Is the worst I've used. I was recently in an Audi A6 with engine running in an empty street it recorded 104decibels! It never went below 96 decibels. Currently have the Tv on with subtitles only and its recording 76 decibels! Its in reality about 45! This app then randomly stops working & shows a recoding of minus 55 & sticks on that. Its o grossly inaccurate a large % of the time it cannot be relied upon even as a gauge its not trustworthy. Much better ones around. What i do like about this one is the easy reading. If this became an accurate app it would be fantastic. Sadly, its the worst in accuracy so one i will delete. Look elsewhere this is not fit for purpose.

This app is not very accurate. In a quiet home it’s reading on average 60 classed as loud, where 70 is classed as disturbing. Another app I have read an average of 50 which is classed as conversation at home.
Awful - not accurate at all
by ffythrvgygv on 2019/09/05 10:51
This is awful, doesn’t have a clue how to measure sound accurately, as others have said. The only noise when I opened the app was someone in my house opening a carrier bag, and it said that was 90db and very dangerous....🤦🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️😂😂. Use something else.

I tried this for getting my new speakers to the correct volume for mixing and mastering. It massively overrated the level by almost 20 db which as db is a logarithmic scale can mean it's reading the sound as hundreds if not thousands of times louder. Needs to have some kind of calibration function.
Good but not awesome!

This could really use some user controls how about settings for 15 min average up to an hour so that it’s useful for noisy neighbours?

Just breathe near the mic and it recorded dangerous noise level?
What a joke
by RANGEDRIVER on 2019/01/06 14:11
I opened the app, at the time of opening I had the radio on fairly quietly, the apps showing 70Db I thought NO WAY...I then turned off the radio so the room was silent...STILL SHOWS 53Db of noise...now I know where the saying “The silence was deafening” comes from...obviously my lounge!!!!

Downloaded this app to check music levels but as soon I opened the app it was giving reading of high to dangerous levels of sound!!! I was talking quietly to my child? Readings are way off so don’t bother.
To measure a person shouting noise level.
by Mysavers on 2018/03/05 20:33
I find this app is very extremely good to measure the danger sound level from a person shouting & measure the television volume level which showing dangerous high level, I think this app is very useful as if you need to make a noise complaint to your local council as the sound level decibel rate be useful for any noise complaint cases. I recommended this app to record the high noise level would be good to use them.
Over reads by ~15dB
by Head8anger on 2017/10/13 18:24
It over reads on my 6S by approx 15dB. In relative terms it thinks that sounds are 2.5 times louder than they actually are!!
Useful app
by Wgbea on 2017/07/07 08:27
Just install and use. Particularly useful to get a base line to take further action if the problem is ignored at work without issue or demonstrating if someone really needs a hearing aid as tv sound excessive.
Excellent App

Use it when you think the noise level is dangerously loud.
Convenient tool
