Awareness…
by Darrel Sky on 2019/10/04 14:13
I really love this app. I have Sound loss going back to when I was in high school and this is a lovely little check on where I should be and what I should do about it.
Easy to use
by Aimon73 on 2019/08/11 16:32
This is a great app for explaining sound levels. It is straight forward very easy to use. I love this app.
Works better than the certified one I purchased!
by Rainbow Missy on 2019/06/30 01:23
Love it- all i want to make it better is the ability to timeline the spikes so I can coordinate with video I'm using to try to identify some really offensive noises. I love the explanations too- easy to understand.
27 decibel the lowest?
by DiscoTyler1 on 2019/02/22 18:00
When it’s really quiet in the room like the lowest it will go is 27 I think that it wouldn’t be 0 but I think that it’s quieter than 27, and I live in the country. I think that it may have to do with the sounds that the phone makes plus the electricity that powers the speakers so you guys should try to fix that please if this problem is a problem.
Very helpful app
by GCD28 on 2018/11/27 02:13
I use this app for our once weekly band Jamboree at our campground in Florida to assist in keeping our sound at a reasonable level. Works great!
Good to have
by djbmlp on 2018/11/20 19:16
I really like this app only problem I have is that I can't get it to toggle between the fast and slow mode. It would of gotten a 5th star if that worked. Still enjoy it and it let's me know just how loud my rock band plays.
Useless just a gimmick
by iRemcoo on 2018/02/04 15:55
Only real-time analysis no saving functionality. So impossible to make a historical record. Therefore useless as a tool only a gimmick.
Simple app. Works. Thank you.
by einzelgaenger on 2017/12/20 04:24
not much to say - works and is simple, great thanks to developer.
Amazing apps
by Alexander K. Bollinger on 2017/12/08 15:08
Useful. Good to see how loud things really are. Sometimes I'm not sure, and this app lets me know.
Nice application
by Jane T. Russell on 2017/12/08 15:05
As a hearing aid user, I have learned to minimize noisey appliances in my home that I previously was not aware.
Great idea
by Maritza D. Roberts on 2017/12/08 14:58
For a free app it surprised me. There are ads but they're unobtrusive. Thank you for a great app! A genuine review.
Lovely
by Tammy R. Kolb on 2017/12/08 14:44
This app should have a notes system and grabation support to record sounds and describe it, even though is very good.
Good choice for your work!
by Winifred G. Wood on 2017/12/08 14:35
I had a professional sound meter a while ago to do my stereo it got stolen and I installed this and it works well.
Nothing impossible!
by Ross V. King on 2017/12/08 14:27
I use this app to measure "noisy appliances", as opposed to regular sounding. Much less subjective. Works great!
That's good!
by Megan S. Gilmore on 2017/12/07 15:33
Excellent app! Using this to document the noise on my school bus run! Getting way too loud, and now I can document this! Thanks!
It's cool
by Margaret J. Rivera on 2017/12/07 15:27
Seems to work well. I dont have anything to compare it with to check accuracy though. Great app
Great features
by Richard B. Moore on 2017/12/07 15:14
I use this great app to limit the volume of my TV etc; Helped me to avoid noise
Good App.
by Mary R. Harrell on 2017/12/07 15:07
Works well, no messing around. Straightforward display, easy to use and feels like a good quality meter.
Perfect App
by iS3rJ on 2017/12/07 14:48
Perfect minimalistic App. You have everything, what you need and some more useful facts about “loud”. It will be great have also a version for Apple Watch.
Very good
by Julia P. Hancock on 2017/12/07 14:48
I do like this app. It helps me measure sound levels with some sort repeatability. Nutters in the flat under ours keep complaining about my bedside radio! So I have some sort independent verification.
Feel so comfortable.
by James D. Park on 2017/12/07 14:40
Very straightforward and quite accurate. Good enough for my industrial noise level evaluations and mitigation projects.
Professional!!
by James G. Warren on 2017/12/07 14:33
The app has no ads, and it's free. thank you developer
Very comfortable!
by Sean C. Trumble on 2017/12/07 14:30
Easy to use application with a permission only. Thank you for this application.
Love this app !
by Duane K. Berger on 2017/12/07 14:20
Loved this app... Very accurate for me. I am living in the farm, it gave the correct indications... Very priceless for once in my life i can quantify noise levels around me
Great app!
by Darcey R. Fields on 2017/12/07 14:15
dB Decibel Meter is simple and convenient to use. Highly accurate measurements.
Works as it should.
by Hatkstrafjmgssnsg on 2017/09/15 14:16
This app works very well. I have compared to other dB Meter's and the results are comparable.
Well-done
by Ajdgrydnrj on 2017/09/15 02:36
Exactly as advertised, takes little memory.
Distance
by rondajoel on 2017/09/10 18:05
Need to know the distance required to use it on a power generator???
Confused
by yapishkahilt on 2017/09/09 01:38
One of the available option settings is db A and db C. There is virtually no explanation in the app for the difference other than offering a few examples. But what confuses me after Googling the terms is that some db A-based adjustments rely on information about the neighborhood in which the readings are being taken. As explained by engineers, there are seven kinds of neighborhood upon which db levels are adjusted, and the adjustment range varies from 0 adjustment to a +25 db adjustment. Yet the app doesn't ask you which of the seven standard environments most closely approximates the conditions in which you're using the app. Without that info, your reading can be off by as much as 25 db. That's a lot. If the app just picks one of those environments for every db A reading, which one does it pick? My point is that it doesn't seem possible for this app to detect the appropriate environment given how descriptive these environmental conditions are, and it doesn't seem possible to provide an accurate db reading (i.e. one without a +/- 25 db accuracy range) without the ability to input this info. To the extent that the developer has an explanation for how the app manages to compensate, id love to hear how.
Music volume
by chapstickmom on 2017/09/06 12:32
Zumba music way too loud at my gym. This proves it so Mgmt will listen to me !!
Don't bother... no other features
by gerper on 2017/09/02 06:38
This version of the app is NO different than the free one other than it does not have ads. I thought this would have a way of logging where you were at for different environments (i.e., home, busy streets, at a concert, etc). Nope. Save your money and use the free version.
Easy to use...
by Santa Fe pix on 2017/08/28 21:57
Learning curve zero. Well written explanation to explain sound levels. No ads. Very enjoyable for my purposes. Installation was essentially automatic. As apps go, it doesn't get much more straightforward than this. I'm a happy owner. Would love to see a relative difference mode and a peak hold mode but I'm very happy with it as is.
Easy buy
by Th3Sizzle on 2017/08/23 06:06
Stop reading reviews and just buy this. It's worth it I promise.
DB METER
by 99centswasted on 2017/08/22 02:23
All the readings are too high
Basic db meter - no instructions
by mystikmike on 2017/08/19 19:17
It's a basic one-screen db meter, but doesn't explain any of the settings. What is the difference between "Low" and "High", and "Slow" or "Fast"? It's nice that the app features dB-A and dB-C algorithms. The Information button just takes you to links for other apps by this developer. Meh.
Total💩
by Daves Home on 2017/07/23 19:35
Please save your money and get the pro version. I stupidly bought both and they're a night and day difference in quality and accuracy.
Solid
by CK11325 on 2017/07/15 21:22
Great little program. If this isn't "professional" enough for your particular application, get a real spl meter.
Convenient
by SqueamyEllis on 2017/07/02 20:58
Very easy to use. Very simple and useful
Excellent
by What....i cant hear you! on 2017/07/02 19:54
Great product
Inuse it for my construction company
by Vikiwiki2 on 2017/05/27 03:16
I have a construction company and many time i have problem with measurement , but from now im using only this app. I couldnt believe when one of my friend explained me what this app does. When i tried it i was shocked , wowww great app. Very easy to use , 100 percent correct, great theme. Get it now and you will see what this app does for you.
Great tool
by Alan Krishnan on 2017/05/21 16:31
Works very well. Best value for money. Raises awareness of noise levels. Keep up the good work. Wonder what happens when I change devices.
Great app
by C maybe on 2017/05/09 04:35
Pretty reliable and great entertainment for a bored audio engineer
It does what it described.
by aaguirre123 on 2017/04/12 22:09
It does what it described.
uses cellular data, no privacy policy given.
by Mike1199 on 2017/04/02 22:41
it should clearly state why it needs internet access and what it's doing.
It's ok
by Sega123z on 2017/04/02 18:52
It looks as if it maxes out at 120db, which is too low for my testing purposes.
?
by Save your .99 cents on 2017/03/27 23:07
What happened to the info?
Perfect for....
by Baron220 on 2017/03/10 01:01
many uses! Especially non-critical ranges and determining if additional testing is required. It is impressive to have the ability to test for general purposes things like work mechanical spaces & equipment, apartment & home environment sounds internally and external. Baron H
Very helpful
by icabodmud on 2017/03/01 04:27
I have just purchased a rangehood that claimed a52db noise level and have proved that my ear is was right, the manufacturer lied. I have since rated all my tools and now know which ones need ear protection to operate. Very helpful.
Good app
by Kinncreek on 2017/02/25 21:09
Works well and is very easy to use.
Works fine
by Earl the Pearl3 on 2017/01/24 15:30
This app is simple, quick, and easy to use. It provides a nice baseline for most needs. I use for onsite construction activities to determine if I need to go further on investigation before calling the experts. It saves lots of time and effort.
Love this app
by LobsterTelephone on 2017/01/22 22:29
Really excellent, super-simple app for measuring environmental noise. I also like that it includes a handy chart for showing dB levels and their corresponding safe daily exposure periods. App does exactly what I was hoping it would do. Many thanks to the developer.
Great
by edcif on 2017/01/17 16:15
Like this app! Straight forward and easy to use!
Keeps me from ruining my hearing
by syclemorphyn4009 on 2017/01/13 14:26
Pretty accurate, and gives a pictorial graph of the dB as well as high and average. A handy tool Especially if you are curious about noise and what to know how loud or quite an environment you are in
Useful app
by lyka144 on 2016/12/31 09:04
Loud noice disturb me and i am aware of the danger of permanent hearing loss as result of continual loud noise. This app allow me to cage if i'm just being sensitive or am i actually risking my hearing and the app allows me to prove to those that already have lost their hearing or don't want to mitigate it the actual level of noise. This app works flawlessly with an intuitive interface.
Dbl00
by Tshaw326 on 2016/12/27 16:33
Very accurate and easy to use. Measurement is intuitive after a couple of trials. Instructions are brief, but adequate. Well worth the $2.00.
Great tool
by Supreme Commander on 2016/12/20 01:00
Works great. Informative. Everything I was looking for.
How quiet?
by Made a son by Jesus Christ on 2016/12/06 18:02
Makes me aware of my need for quiet...
Simple and effective
by Gettster on 2016/12/02 09:09
Does exactly what it's meant with a simple elegant. Can't comment on accuracy because I don't have a calibrated professional monito but most of the readings seem reasonable.
Very nice
by NWA Redneck on 2016/11/13 06:25
I bought this with intentions on measuring the DB on the sound system in my truck. So far it's very accurate and precise challenging it to professional audio shows. They measure exactly. Now that I have this, I know I can be ready for further car shows. This app is very helpful and now I can help my friends measure the DB of their audio systems too.
dB Meter
by rbmw0896 on 2016/11/11 16:33
Simple, straight forward, easy to use. This app does a good job for establishing basic information in many common environments. The instructions are brief but thorough, concise and helpful. Using the app becomes very intuitive after the first or second use. Easily worth $2. One earlier review mentioned that there didn't appear to be a way to reset previous measurements. I found that if you close the app (returning to the home screen), double click the home button (showing the recently opened apps), then "swipe" the dB app out of the order resets it.
I love it
by Jacksonville 19195 on 2016/11/01 17:24
19 great db
Extremely helpful
by Doc4d on 2016/10/27 07:25
I have modest hearing loss with which I have addressed with hearing aids. However, during my "getting used to it phase" I had some challenges listening to music or watching television and keeping a balance with others in the room. This app has been of great assistance in helping me discover common ground without driving everyone nuts!
Great app
by Gernob on 2016/10/21 03:51
Really Great
Best meter yet
by realmike on 2016/10/21 00:49
I have tried several db meters and most are just ok. This one outperforms the rest and the help screen provides even more useful information. I will most likely delete the others
An app with clear focus and execution
by Jeremyspade on 2016/10/21 00:11
Informative, accurate and very well done.
Neat dB meter
by Trust me, I'm not a hipster on 2016/10/20 18:08
This app is well designed and seems to work well. It has useful information about sound as well. Removed one star because it appears there is no way to reset max and average levels.
Good
by JackLeeTom on 2016/09/25 09:02
Is it possible for you guys to create a noise cancelling app.. that lets us create a quiet zone. By using sound waves of opposite phase value so that the sound signal generated can cancel the ambient noise. I can help you more with technicalities. But would love to see that idea put into reality. Anyway thanks
Professional decibel measurement
by MalcolmJoan on 2016/09/25 08:33
This is a very convenient to carry professional measuring decibels. Anywhere decibel environments can I measure. The measurement accuracy of the data.
Inaccurate, don't waste your money
by slp_sea on 2016/09/23 20:31
I downloaded this to use with one of my students who is working on controlling her vocal volume. In a completely silent room, the app read 70 db. It's a piece of junk. Don't waste your money.
Professional and very professional
by Roy iii uu on 2016/09/19 17:29
How to describe this app? Professional! Highly recommend it, because it works exactly as it describes as a great sound level meter on the go. It is creative and easy to use. Want to know how much the volume? Just open the app and start it, you can easily get your answer. Thank you for the developer.
Good looking, good help, accurate
by Filter_Emphasis on 2016/09/16 01:06
I chose this app because of the big font used for the main display, the clean design and the calibration put in to the development. I like to use this app. No complaints. One feature request: consider adding support for rotation to landscape, as many people (musicians especially) prefer to work on devices in landscape. Not a deal breaker but it does make it a pain sometimes, particularly if the device is connected to other stuff and is difficult to rotate without unplugging everything.
like it
by samkittt163 on 2016/09/09 23:01
I have been practising the piano.I don't mind the noise during the day.But I need this application,It might help to lower the volume.

by Manstang on 2016/06/03 03:09
Cheap and useless because it do not have a graphic display.

Professional App
by key sweet on 2016/05/05 03:42
This is a wonderful app with professional sound level meter. It is easy to use. I will keep it on my phone.
20 db off
by Alex Slack on 2016/03/21 21:47
This thing will say 120 db in a venue where we rarely hit 90. Maybe it was designed for a plug-in mic, but for the iPhone 6s mic it's pretty useless.
Not as expected
by Great-bears on 2016/03/16 18:36
Decibel 10th is free and better than this app.
Good
by Dudexxxxxxxh on 2016/03/09 13:25
It spikes high a little too easily but should be fine for measuring my tone db lvl from my guitar amp.
Useful app
by phan100883 on 2016/03/03 03:24
I work with my phone alot of time and this app is good to have a great sound for me. I will keep it in the futher for some noisy places. Thank you
Excellent Application
by PaulBarina on 2016/03/03 00:47
As an industrial engineer who focuses on human factors and ergonomics, I find this extremely helpful for the workplace. This is not a professional instrument as it uses your microphone from your iPhone. However, I do find it reliable and acceptable to rate general environments. It's an eye opener! Or better yet an ear opener.
Junk
by 254538719 on 2016/02/28 19:28
Don't waste your money. Put it in a closet where there was zero sound and it was measuring 34 DBA?? If that's were it starts it cannot be accurate at any other level.
Great app
by Tony778 on 2016/02/27 12:57
This is an awesome app. I can quickly and accurately measure sound level. The interface is intelligently designed, very easy to use. This app is simply outstanding in all ways. I absolutely love it!
Awesome and useful
by Nicotheo101 on 2016/02/26 23:19
Great app! Easy to understand and works perfectly. Useful on the go and overall, best app of its kind on the App Store!
Nice on the go
by closee91 on 2016/02/23 13:08
It's nice to be able to gauge sound around you with no extra equipment. Bringing nothing from my studio or lugging around heavy things. Just bust out my phone and start the app. It's simple and does what it does well.
Good app
by LA_213 on 2016/02/20 19:50
Probably very useful for anyone working with sound or concerned about their hearing safety. Works well, measures the sound nicely in a simple to read meter and seems to be accurate. I'd recommend it to people who need it, it's definitely worth it.
Useful on the Go
by eagle2019 on 2016/02/18 22:47
I like this app because it can be used with only my phone and no extra peripherals. It makes it easy to gauge sound levels when I'm in areas that are too small for traditional equipment, such as planes or cars.
Very useful app
by Zrczrcz on 2016/02/15 17:01
I work with sound for a living and always had to carry around a huge meter. This app allows me to detect sound levels as accurately as a phone can. Works just as intended.
Not accurate
by Diesel date on 2016/02/08 23:20
20db off. Always high compared to a dedicated db meter....useless
Useful App
by Julia Thois on 2016/01/14 10:46
This is a good app. It's very useful and seems accurate. From general noise (60db) to my Motorbike passing its MOT noise limit (94db). Even clocked rock bands playing at 120!!.. Great and all who have seen it have been well impressed. Great app. Thank u so much.🌷🌷🌷
Thanks.
by Tracy Moon Nguyen on 2016/01/12 09:30
This app is really helpful. With the threshold of each sound level, I can check whether the envrionment is safe for my health or not. Thanks
Very efficient and unencumbered tool

Easy to use...
by Santa Fe pix on 2017/08/28 21:57
Learning curve zero. Well written explanation to explain sound levels. No ads. Very enjoyable for my purposes. Installation was essentially automatic. As apps go, it doesn't get much more straightforward than this. I'm a happy owner. Would love to see a relative difference mode and a peak hold mode but I'm very happy with it as is.
Works better than the certified one I purchased!
by Rainbow Missy on 2019/06/30 01:23
Love it- all i want to make it better is the ability to timeline the spikes so I can coordinate with video I'm using to try to identify some really offensive noises. I love the explanations too- easy to understand.
27 decibel the lowest?
by DiscoTyler1 on 2019/02/22 18:00
When it’s really quiet in the room like the lowest it will go is 27 I think that it wouldn’t be 0 but I think that it’s quieter than 27, and I live in the country. I think that it may have to do with the sounds that the phone makes plus the electricity that powers the speakers so you guys should try to fix that please if this problem is a problem.
Works fine
by Earl the Pearl3 on 2017/01/24 15:30
This app is simple, quick, and easy to use. It provides a nice baseline for most needs. I use for onsite construction activities to determine if I need to go further on investigation before calling the experts. It saves lots of time and effort.
Love this app
by LobsterTelephone on 2017/01/22 22:29
Really excellent, super-simple app for measuring environmental noise. I also like that it includes a handy chart for showing dB levels and their corresponding safe daily exposure periods. App does exactly what I was hoping it would do. Many thanks to the developer.
Best meter yet
by realmike on 2016/10/21 00:49
I have tried several db meters and most are just ok. This one outperforms the rest and the help screen provides even more useful information. I will most likely delete the others

Pretty accurate, and gives a pictorial graph of the dB as well as high and average. A handy tool Especially if you are curious about noise and what to know how loud or quite an environment you are in
Good to have
by djbmlp on 2018/11/20 19:16
I really like this app only problem I have is that I can't get it to toggle between the fast and slow mode. It would of gotten a 5th star if that worked. Still enjoy it and it let's me know just how loud my rock band plays.
Basic db meter - no instructions
by mystikmike on 2017/08/19 19:17
It's a basic one-screen db meter, but doesn't explain any of the settings. What is the difference between "Low" and "High", and "Slow" or "Fast"? It's nice that the app features dB-A and dB-C algorithms. The Information button just takes you to links for other apps by this developer. Meh.
Awareness…

I really love this app. I have Sound loss going back to when I was in high school and this is a lovely little check on where I should be and what I should do about it.
Very good
by Julia P. Hancock on 2017/12/07 14:48
I do like this app. It helps me measure sound levels with some sort repeatability. Nutters in the flat under ours keep complaining about my bedside radio! So I have some sort independent verification.

Does exactly what it's meant with a simple elegant. Can't comment on accuracy because I don't have a calibrated professional monito but most of the readings seem reasonable.
Neat dB meter
by Trust me, I'm not a hipster on 2016/10/20 18:08
This app is well designed and seems to work well. It has useful information about sound as well. Removed one star because it appears there is no way to reset max and average levels.
Good choice for your work!

I had a professional sound meter a while ago to do my stereo it got stolen and I installed this and it works well.

Works well, no messing around. Straightforward display, easy to use and feels like a good quality meter.
Don't bother... no other features
by gerper on 2017/09/02 06:38
This version of the app is NO different than the free one other than it does not have ads. I thought this would have a way of logging where you were at for different environments (i.e., home, busy streets, at a concert, etc). Nope. Save your money and use the free version.
Works as it should.

Confused
by yapishkahilt on 2017/09/09 01:38
One of the available option settings is db A and db C. There is virtually no explanation in the app for the difference other than offering a few examples. But what confuses me after Googling the terms is that some db A-based adjustments rely on information about the neighborhood in which the readings are being taken. As explained by engineers, there are seven kinds of neighborhood upon which db levels are adjusted, and the adjustment range varies from 0 adjustment to a +25 db adjustment. Yet the app doesn't ask you which of the seven standard environments most closely approximates the conditions in which you're using the app. Without that info, your reading can be off by as much as 25 db. That's a lot. If the app just picks one of those environments for every db A reading, which one does it pick? My point is that it doesn't seem possible for this app to detect the appropriate environment given how descriptive these environmental conditions are, and it doesn't seem possible to provide an accurate db reading (i.e. one without a +/- 25 db accuracy range) without the ability to input this info. To the extent that the developer has an explanation for how the app manages to compensate, id love to hear how.

I bought this with intentions on measuring the DB on the sound system in my truck. So far it's very accurate and precise challenging it to professional audio shows. They measure exactly. Now that I have this, I know I can be ready for further car shows. This app is very helpful and now I can help my friends measure the DB of their audio systems too.
dB Meter
by rbmw0896 on 2016/11/11 16:33
Simple, straight forward, easy to use. This app does a good job for establishing basic information in many common environments. The instructions are brief but thorough, concise and helpful. Using the app becomes very intuitive after the first or second use. Easily worth $2. One earlier review mentioned that there didn't appear to be a way to reset previous measurements. I found that if you close the app (returning to the home screen), double click the home button (showing the recently opened apps), then "swipe" the dB app out of the order resets it.
I love it

However, during my "getting used to it phase" I had some challenges listening to music or watching television and keeping a balance with others in the room. This app has been of great assistance in helping me discover common ground without driving everyone nuts!
Great app
by Gernob on 2016/10/21 03:51
Really Great
Best meter yet
by realmike on 2016/10/21 00:49
I have tried several db meters and most are just ok. This one outperforms the rest and the help screen provides even more useful information. I will most likely delete the others
An app with clear focus and execution
by Jeremyspade on 2016/10/21 00:11
Informative, accurate and very well done.
Neat dB meter
by Trust me, I'm not a hipster on 2016/10/20 18:08
This app is well designed and seems to work well. It has useful information about sound as well. Removed one star because it appears there is no way to reset max and average levels.
Good
by JackLeeTom on 2016/09/25 09:02
Is it possible for you guys to create a noise cancelling app.. that lets us create a quiet zone. By using sound waves of opposite phase value so that the sound signal generated can cancel the ambient noise. I can help you more with technicalities. But would love to see that idea put into reality. Anyway thanks
Professional decibel measurement
by MalcolmJoan on 2016/09/25 08:33
This is a very convenient to carry professional measuring decibels. Anywhere decibel environments can I measure. The measurement accuracy of the data.
Inaccurate, don't waste your money
by slp_sea on 2016/09/23 20:31
I downloaded this to use with one of my students who is working on controlling her vocal volume. In a completely silent room, the app read 70 db. It's a piece of junk. Don't waste your money.
Professional and very professional
by Roy iii uu on 2016/09/19 17:29
How to describe this app? Professional! Highly recommend it, because it works exactly as it describes as a great sound level meter on the go. It is creative and easy to use. Want to know how much the volume? Just open the app and start it, you can easily get your answer. Thank you for the developer.
Good looking, good help, accurate
by Filter_Emphasis on 2016/09/16 01:06
I chose this app because of the big font used for the main display, the clean design and the calibration put in to the development. I like to use this app. No complaints. One feature request: consider adding support for rotation to landscape, as many people (musicians especially) prefer to work on devices in landscape. Not a deal breaker but it does make it a pain sometimes, particularly if the device is connected to other stuff and is difficult to rotate without unplugging everything.
like it

This is a wonderful app with professional sound level meter. It is easy to use. I will keep it on my phone.
20 db off
by Alex Slack on 2016/03/21 21:47
This thing will say 120 db in a venue where we rarely hit 90. Maybe it was designed for a plug-in mic, but for the iPhone 6s mic it's pretty useless.
Not as expected
by Great-bears on 2016/03/16 18:36
Decibel 10th is free and better than this app.
Good
by Dudexxxxxxxh on 2016/03/09 13:25
It spikes high a little too easily but should be fine for measuring my tone db lvl from my guitar amp.
Useful app
by phan100883 on 2016/03/03 03:24
I work with my phone alot of time and this app is good to have a great sound for me. I will keep it in the futher for some noisy places. Thank you
Excellent Application
by PaulBarina on 2016/03/03 00:47
As an industrial engineer who focuses on human factors and ergonomics, I find this extremely helpful for the workplace. This is not a professional instrument as it uses your microphone from your iPhone. However, I do find it reliable and acceptable to rate general environments. It's an eye opener! Or better yet an ear opener.
Junk
by 254538719 on 2016/02/28 19:28
Don't waste your money. Put it in a closet where there was zero sound and it was measuring 34 DBA?? If that's were it starts it cannot be accurate at any other level.
Great app
by Tony778 on 2016/02/27 12:57
This is an awesome app. I can quickly and accurately measure sound level. The interface is intelligently designed, very easy to use. This app is simply outstanding in all ways. I absolutely love it!
Awesome and useful
by Nicotheo101 on 2016/02/26 23:19
Great app! Easy to understand and works perfectly. Useful on the go and overall, best app of its kind on the App Store!
Nice on the go
by closee91 on 2016/02/23 13:08
It's nice to be able to gauge sound around you with no extra equipment. Bringing nothing from my studio or lugging around heavy things. Just bust out my phone and start the app. It's simple and does what it does well.
Good app
by LA_213 on 2016/02/20 19:50
Probably very useful for anyone working with sound or concerned about their hearing safety. Works well, measures the sound nicely in a simple to read meter and seems to be accurate. I'd recommend it to people who need it, it's definitely worth it.
Useful on the Go
by eagle2019 on 2016/02/18 22:47
I like this app because it can be used with only my phone and no extra peripherals. It makes it easy to gauge sound levels when I'm in areas that are too small for traditional equipment, such as planes or cars.
Very useful app
by Zrczrcz on 2016/02/15 17:01
I work with sound for a living and always had to carry around a huge meter. This app allows me to detect sound levels as accurately as a phone can. Works just as intended.
Not accurate
by Diesel date on 2016/02/08 23:20
20db off. Always high compared to a dedicated db meter....useless
Useful App
by Julia Thois on 2016/01/14 10:46
This is a good app. It's very useful and seems accurate. From general noise (60db) to my Motorbike passing its MOT noise limit (94db). Even clocked rock bands playing at 120!!.. Great and all who have seen it have been well impressed. Great app. Thank u so much.🌷🌷🌷
Thanks.
by Tracy Moon Nguyen on 2016/01/12 09:30
This app is really helpful. With the threshold of each sound level, I can check whether the envrionment is safe for my health or not. Thanks
Very efficient and unencumbered tool

dB Meter
by rbmw0896 on 2016/11/11 16:33
Simple, straight forward, easy to use. This app does a good job for establishing basic information in many common environments. The instructions are brief but thorough, concise and helpful. Using the app becomes very intuitive after the first or second use. Easily worth $2. One earlier review mentioned that there didn't appear to be a way to reset previous measurements. I found that if you close the app (returning to the home screen), double click the home button (showing the recently opened apps), then "swipe" the dB app out of the order resets it.
Confused
by yapishkahilt on 2017/09/09 01:38
One of the available option settings is db A and db C. There is virtually no explanation in the app for the difference other than offering a few examples. But what confuses me after Googling the terms is that some db A-based adjustments rely on information about the neighborhood in which the readings are being taken. As explained by engineers, there are seven kinds of neighborhood upon which db levels are adjusted, and the adjustment range varies from 0 adjustment to a +25 db adjustment. Yet the app doesn't ask you which of the seven standard environments most closely approximates the conditions in which you're using the app. Without that info, your reading can be off by as much as 25 db. That's a lot. If the app just picks one of those environments for every db A reading, which one does it pick? My point is that it doesn't seem possible for this app to detect the appropriate environment given how descriptive these environmental conditions are, and it doesn't seem possible to provide an accurate db reading (i.e. one without a +/- 25 db accuracy range) without the ability to input this info. To the extent that the developer has an explanation for how the app manages to compensate, id love to hear how.

Inuse it for my construction company
by Vikiwiki2 on 2017/05/27 03:16
I have a construction company and many time i have problem with measurement , but from now im using only this app. I couldnt believe when one of my friend explained me what this app does. When i tried it i was shocked , wowww great app. Very easy to use , 100 percent correct, great theme. Get it now and you will see what this app does for you.
Very nice
by NWA Redneck on 2016/11/13 06:25
I bought this with intentions on measuring the DB on the sound system in my truck. So far it's very accurate and precise challenging it to professional audio shows. They measure exactly. Now that I have this, I know I can be ready for further car shows. This app is very helpful and now I can help my friends measure the DB of their audio systems too.
Useful app
by lyka144 on 2016/12/31 09:04
Loud noice disturb me and i am aware of the danger of permanent hearing loss as result of continual loud noise. This app allow me to cage if i'm just being sensitive or am i actually risking my hearing and the app allows me to prove to those that already have lost their hearing or don't want to mitigate it the actual level of noise. This app works flawlessly with an intuitive interface.
Easy to use...
by Santa Fe pix on 2017/08/28 21:57
Learning curve zero. Well written explanation to explain sound levels. No ads. Very enjoyable for my purposes. Installation was essentially automatic. As apps go, it doesn't get much more straightforward than this. I'm a happy owner. Would love to see a relative difference mode and a peak hold mode but I'm very happy with it as is.
Works better than the certified one I purchased!
by Rainbow Missy on 2019/06/30 01:23
Love it- all i want to make it better is the ability to timeline the spikes so I can coordinate with video I'm using to try to identify some really offensive noises. I love the explanations too- easy to understand.
27 decibel the lowest?
by DiscoTyler1 on 2019/02/22 18:00
When it’s really quiet in the room like the lowest it will go is 27 I think that it wouldn’t be 0 but I think that it’s quieter than 27, and I live in the country. I think that it may have to do with the sounds that the phone makes plus the electricity that powers the speakers so you guys should try to fix that please if this problem is a problem.
Works fine
by Earl the Pearl3 on 2017/01/24 15:30
This app is simple, quick, and easy to use. It provides a nice baseline for most needs. I use for onsite construction activities to determine if I need to go further on investigation before calling the experts. It saves lots of time and effort.
Love this app
by LobsterTelephone on 2017/01/22 22:29
Really excellent, super-simple app for measuring environmental noise. I also like that it includes a handy chart for showing dB levels and their corresponding safe daily exposure periods. App does exactly what I was hoping it would do. Many thanks to the developer.

by Baron220 on 2017/03/10 01:01
many uses! Especially non-critical ranges and determining if additional testing is required. It is impressive to have the ability to test for general purposes things like work mechanical spaces & equipment, apartment & home environment sounds internally and external. Baron H
Keeps me from ruining my hearing
by syclemorphyn4009 on 2017/01/13 14:26
Pretty accurate, and gives a pictorial graph of the dB as well as high and average. A handy tool Especially if you are curious about noise and what to know how loud or quite an environment you are in
Good to have
by djbmlp on 2018/11/20 19:16
I really like this app only problem I have is that I can't get it to toggle between the fast and slow mode. It would of gotten a 5th star if that worked. Still enjoy it and it let's me know just how loud my rock band plays.
Basic db meter - no instructions
by mystikmike on 2017/08/19 19:17
It's a basic one-screen db meter, but doesn't explain any of the settings. What is the difference between "Low" and "High", and "Slow" or "Fast"? It's nice that the app features dB-A and dB-C algorithms. The Information button just takes you to links for other apps by this developer. Meh.
Awareness…
by Darrel Sky on 2019/10/04 14:13
I really love this app. I have Sound loss going back to when I was in high school and this is a lovely little check on where I should be and what I should do about it.
Very good
by Julia P. Hancock on 2017/12/07 14:48
I do like this app. It helps me measure sound levels with some sort repeatability. Nutters in the flat under ours keep complaining about my bedside radio! So I have some sort independent verification.
Simple and effective
by Gettster on 2016/12/02 09:09
Does exactly what it's meant with a simple elegant. Can't comment on accuracy because I don't have a calibrated professional monito but most of the readings seem reasonable.
Neat dB meter

by icabodmud on 2017/03/01 04:27
I have just purchased a rangehood that claimed a52db noise level and have proved that my ear is was right, the manufacturer lied. I have since rated all my tools and now know which ones need ear protection to operate. Very helpful.
Lovely
by Tammy R. Kolb on 2017/12/08 14:44

Works well, no messing around. Straightforward display, easy to use and feels like a good quality meter.
Don't bother... no other features
by gerper on 2017/09/02 06:38
This version of the app is NO different than the free one other than it does not have ads. I thought this would have a way of logging where you were at for different environments (i.e., home, busy streets, at a concert, etc). Nope. Save your money and use the free version.
Works as it should.
by Hatkstrafjmgssnsg on 2017/09/15 14:16
This app works very well. I have compared to other dB Meter's and the results are comparable.
