decibel meter Sound Detector
Description
Track environmental noise around you with this easy-to-use decibel meter app. This app will transform your device into a professional grade sound detector with detailed visual analysis. decibel meter app uses the built-in microphone to determine the level of sound it detects and displays it in decibels (dB). Microphone audio data is used to calculate dB (Decibels) / AF (Audio Frequency) reading to the user. This app support polling functionality using web hooks to monitor the dB and frequency values for realtime data analysis. This app is also support share readings with Messages, Email, WhatsApp, Notes and more, if the user prefer to use dB / AF values for further analysis. Apart from that the audio or any other information is not collected, used, stored, transmitted or circulated in any way. The decibel reading obtained from this application is limited to the device microphone capabilities. It is not, therefore, recommended to use this app as a high quality professional grade meter. The dB reading obtained from this app is between 20 to 120 decibels without any calibration. Audible frequencies is limited to the standard range of 20 to 20,000 Hz. For additional information and comments please contact info@ashlogic.com FEATURES: - Accurate measurements. - Frequency Weighting A, B, C, Z. - dB range between 20 to 120. - Share reading with Email, Message, Notes, WhatsApp and more.. - Data polling using web hooks. - Audible frequency range between 20 to 20,000 Hz. - dB / AF line charts analyzer with zoom-in / zoom-out feature. - Intuitive design. - Threshold Settings - Display current, average and maximum values. - Display peak frequency. - Calibrated with processional quality dB measurement device. - Manual calibration. - Start / Stop / Reset functionality.

My bar is the same decibel level as my generator. Good smooth running, using synthetic, same weight as recommended in the instructions. Give you updates.
Adding a clock
by ThomasCao2324 on 2020/09/11 23:38
It’s great if a clock is on the screen to know the time to start recording.
Just what I was looking for
by Becky BT on 2020/09/06 20:17
This app is just what I was looking for to measure the volume of noise.
40% higher than all other apps
by Wombatmatty on 2020/08/22 19:53
The sound measurements are consistently 40% higher in this app than in any other app or handheld device.
Simple and effective
by vfupewfe on 2020/08/21 02:58
I’m using this to monitor listening levels of music in various rooms and systems. I’m just a recent hifi enthusiast but I find this app to be helpful in some basic audio measurement.
I’d give it a negative star if I could
by surfergirl915 on 2020/08/16 23:31
Similar to many other dB meter apps, so it gets the same review: Literally when your measurement reads 75 dB on this app, indicating a “potential hazard,” while in a quiet gentle breeze that I can fall asleep to, there is something seriously wrong with this app. It is by far the norm with these free dB meter apps, which leads me to think that access to your phone is the objective and not really to provide you with even a semi-accurate reading. I WOULDNT BOTHER DOWNLOADING IT! 😡

Wanted a baseline decibel reading for my home office before I bought a new video card. The room averages 40db and the card I’m looking at averages 30db. Now I can buy it without any doubt that I won’t notice the card’s fans. Thanks!
Great app!
by Patricia Joan B on 2020/08/13 03:58
This is a really good app if you want to monitor the level of sound. I used it to find the quietest fan.

Best app for decibals
by Boston Bonsai on 2020/07/02 01:38
Very helpful when buying a new air conditioner. First one I had to return, it was so loud! Second one was perfect and this app registers both decibals properly.
Add Sone levels please
by AHSMASSACHUSETTS2018 on 2020/06/28 07:55
Equipment noise ratings are measured in Sones which I must convert to DB and then to HZ !
Thank You

Attach date and time of recording?
by Eephoto on 2020/06/05 01:55
Wish it had the ability to capture the date and time of the recordings and also store the recordings on the app. I need it for evidence in a court case.
Great DB measuring App
by dong388 on 2020/06/01 00:06
Very accurate, I’m playing saxophone and make sure I’m monitoring my DB. This great and free. Hopefully will stay free!
Good meter

Good meter. A bit sensitive but still overall good. 4 stars.

To be accurate or not to be accurate.
by Xyleran on 2020/03/27 13:16
Frustrated with this meter. I’ve tested 6 different apps. This one is logging sound at an avg of 7-10 dba higher. Maybe the others are inaccurate?
Vibration
by Need More Receptive on 2020/03/01 17:48
Try adding an option for vibration so deaf could be alerted when someone is calling them, or a phone or doorbell rings.
Will not record data on noise disturbances during the night
by GreenTeaPod on 2020/02/16 12:24
Update 16-Feb-2020: The developer contacted me after my first negative review. I explained the bug and he fixed it. Works great now, can record forever! :) — Old review (outdated) I upgraded to remove the time limit so I could record data on the time of noise disturbances while I slept. The time limit is not removed, it is *increased* and it appears that 1hr is the limit with premium. They should write that this is the limit. As currently designed this app is useless for those who want to to get data while they sleep. Wast of money for me.
Pretty good, some bugs
by tabernar on 2020/02/12 23:11
Overall decent sound level app. The “Analyze” feature is a bit broken. It always shows just one recording in the list. I don’t know how to make it create a new, separate recording. The Analyze feature has a backwards time axis. The far left is the most recent time and the past extends to the right. Recording start time should be at zero, then extend right as time passes. Needs to be calibrated against professional equipment for absolute accuracy, but that will be the case with any such app. At least you can easily dial in your own calibration amounts.

Like the app very much. Compared to our laboratory standard unit, compares almost identically throughout the entire range.
Societal Din
by ccbasile on 2020/01/27 16:36
With the escalating noise levels of the societal sphere, both public and industrial, I’m surprised I lived without this device for so long. It is now an essential element in my regimen.
Amazing. Beautiful. Fantastic. Life changing. Monumental.
by Toby ws on 2020/01/24 13:21
This app is quite simply spectacular. It has veritably changed my life forever for the better. It is, without a doubt, the single greatest application I have ever had the privilege to set my humble eyes on. Incredible!
Great tool !!!

This is a must have now you can see how loud things are
False high decibels

by e=mc,sq on 2019/12/16 04:23
Sitting in a quite room in the house and the meter says 78 to 91 dbl’s yea right they need to recalibrate this program
Measures well
by N3hyb on 2019/12/13 16:11
Works well. I only wish it had a hold ability so I could measure the loudness of a gun shot.

Great app!
by rvsixer on 2019/11/04 23:44
Updated review (formally one star due to difficulty getting support from vendor, combined with Apple’s customer AI severely lacking in actually helping customer). Developer did eventually contact me, resolved ALL my issues, and even followed up to check on if things were still fine. AND the app works great. I am a very happy customer now. Recommended.
Great app!!

This is a great app!! I really like that you can lock in a decibel

Great app
Seems to be fairly accurate
by AzpyroGuy on 2019/08/09 02:38
I haven't tested it in a quiet room with a professional setup and calibration. But thats not what I wanted it for. I just needed something close, clean interface and was most of all ad free. It checked all those boxes so it was a good $2 spend.
SUPERLATIVE !

Sometime when you just need to know what dB your hearing/creating; this great app measures that s!$& :)

Disappointed, Upgraded to Premium but got no added functionality, Doesn't having damping or highest peak lock and only goes to 120, useless for industrial purposes.
Very Happy!

Clean Interface
by SCofBB on 2017/11/22 09:18
I cannot attest to the accuracy but I give this app high points for its clean user interface and for not looking like the Vegas strip. A few suggestions: (1) Would be very useful if it adjusted to a landscape view when the phone is tilted. In my office I would like to set my phone on its side. This seems like a no brainer. (2) The Reset High dialog box is jarring because it clashes so much with the UI. I suggest that a press and hold be an option to perform a reset OR just add another button... though a double tap on the Stop/Play button does the trick. Nice work.
Stunning masterpiece!
by royalkingdom005 on 2017/09/26 23:56
This is by far the best decibel meter I have ever seen. The amazing graphic design, the precise visual indicators, the accurate audio measurements have blown me away. Little descriptions of decibel ranges, average and max statistics, beautiful fluctuating graphs, and the ability to analyze the data you've been collecting only further confirms the fact that this visually appealing, sensitive but exact app would be perfect from academic purposes to industrial environments.
Great App.. 10 star!!

Track environmental noise around you with this easy-to-use decibel meter app. This app will transform your device into a professional grade sound detector with detailed visual analysis. decibel meter app uses the built-in microphone to determine the level of sound it detects and displays it in decibels (dB). Microphone audio data is used to calculate dB (Decibels) / AF (Audio Frequency) reading to the user. This app support polling functionality using web hooks to monitor the dB and frequency values for realtime data analysis. This app is also support share readings with Messages, Email, WhatsApp, Notes and more, if the user prefer to use dB / AF values for further analysis. Apart from that the audio or any other information is not collected, used, stored, transmitted or circulated in any way. The decibel reading obtained from this application is limited to the device microphone capabilities. It is not, therefore, recommended to use this app as a high quality professional grade meter. The dB reading obtained from this app is between 20 to 120 decibels without any calibration. Audible frequencies is limited to the standard range of 20 to 20,000 Hz. For additional information and comments please contact info@ashlogic.com FEATURES: - Accurate measurements. - Frequency Weighting A, B, C, Z. - dB range between 20 to 120. - Share reading with Email, Message, Notes, WhatsApp and more.. - Data polling using web hooks. - Audible frequency range between 20 to 20,000 Hz. - dB / AF line charts analyzer with zoom-in / zoom-out feature. - Intuitive design. - Threshold Settings - Display current, average and maximum values. - Display peak frequency. - Calibrated with processional quality dB measurement device. - Manual calibration. - Start / Stop / Reset functionality.

My bar is the same decibel level as my generator. Good smooth running, using synthetic, same weight as recommended in the instructions. Give you updates.
Adding a clock
by ThomasCao2324 on 2020/09/11 23:38
It’s great if a clock is on the screen to know the time to start recording.
Just what I was looking for
by Becky BT on 2020/09/06 20:17
This app is just what I was looking for to measure the volume of noise.
40% higher than all other apps
by Wombatmatty on 2020/08/22 19:53
The sound measurements are consistently 40% higher in this app than in any other app or handheld device.
Simple and effective
by vfupewfe on 2020/08/21 02:58
I’m using this to monitor listening levels of music in various rooms and systems. I’m just a recent hifi enthusiast but I find this app to be helpful in some basic audio measurement.
I’d give it a negative star if I could
by surfergirl915 on 2020/08/16 23:31
Similar to many other dB meter apps, so it gets the same review: Literally when your measurement reads 75 dB on this app, indicating a “potential hazard,” while in a quiet gentle breeze that I can fall asleep to, there is something seriously wrong with this app. It is by far the norm with these free dB meter apps, which leads me to think that access to your phone is the objective and not really to provide you with even a semi-accurate reading. I WOULDNT BOTHER DOWNLOADING IT! 😡

Wanted a baseline decibel reading for my home office before I bought a new video card. The room averages 40db and the card I’m looking at averages 30db. Now I can buy it without any doubt that I won’t notice the card’s fans. Thanks!
Great app!
by Patricia Joan B on 2020/08/13 03:58
This is a really good app if you want to monitor the level of sound. I used it to find the quietest fan.

Best app for decibals
by Boston Bonsai on 2020/07/02 01:38
Very helpful when buying a new air conditioner. First one I had to return, it was so loud! Second one was perfect and this app registers both decibals properly.
Add Sone levels please
by AHSMASSACHUSETTS2018 on 2020/06/28 07:55
Equipment noise ratings are measured in Sones which I must convert to DB and then to HZ !
Thank You

Attach date and time of recording?
by Eephoto on 2020/06/05 01:55
Wish it had the ability to capture the date and time of the recordings and also store the recordings on the app. I need it for evidence in a court case.
Great DB measuring App
by dong388 on 2020/06/01 00:06
Very accurate, I’m playing saxophone and make sure I’m monitoring my DB. This great and free. Hopefully will stay free!
Good meter

Good meter. A bit sensitive but still overall good. 4 stars.

To be accurate or not to be accurate.
by Xyleran on 2020/03/27 13:16
Frustrated with this meter. I’ve tested 6 different apps. This one is logging sound at an avg of 7-10 dba higher. Maybe the others are inaccurate?
Vibration
by Need More Receptive on 2020/03/01 17:48
Try adding an option for vibration so deaf could be alerted when someone is calling them, or a phone or doorbell rings.
Will not record data on noise disturbances during the night
by GreenTeaPod on 2020/02/16 12:24
Update 16-Feb-2020: The developer contacted me after my first negative review. I explained the bug and he fixed it. Works great now, can record forever! :) — Old review (outdated) I upgraded to remove the time limit so I could record data on the time of noise disturbances while I slept. The time limit is not removed, it is *increased* and it appears that 1hr is the limit with premium. They should write that this is the limit. As currently designed this app is useless for those who want to to get data while they sleep. Wast of money for me.
Pretty good, some bugs
by tabernar on 2020/02/12 23:11
Overall decent sound level app. The “Analyze” feature is a bit broken. It always shows just one recording in the list. I don’t know how to make it create a new, separate recording. The Analyze feature has a backwards time axis. The far left is the most recent time and the past extends to the right. Recording start time should be at zero, then extend right as time passes. Needs to be calibrated against professional equipment for absolute accuracy, but that will be the case with any such app. At least you can easily dial in your own calibration amounts.

Like the app very much. Compared to our laboratory standard unit, compares almost identically throughout the entire range.
Societal Din
by ccbasile on 2020/01/27 16:36
With the escalating noise levels of the societal sphere, both public and industrial, I’m surprised I lived without this device for so long. It is now an essential element in my regimen.
Amazing. Beautiful. Fantastic. Life changing. Monumental.
by Toby ws on 2020/01/24 13:21
This app is quite simply spectacular. It has veritably changed my life forever for the better. It is, without a doubt, the single greatest application I have ever had the privilege to set my humble eyes on. Incredible!
Great tool !!!
by Papa606 on 2020/01/15 23:35
This is a must have now you can see how loud things are
False high decibels

by e=mc,sq on 2019/12/16 04:23
Sitting in a quite room in the house and the meter says 78 to 91 dbl’s yea right they need to recalibrate this program
Measures well
by N3hyb on 2019/12/13 16:11
Works well. I only wish it had a hold ability so I could measure the loudness of a gun shot.

Great app!
by rvsixer on 2019/11/04 23:44
Updated review (formally one star due to difficulty getting support from vendor, combined with Apple’s customer AI severely lacking in actually helping customer). Developer did eventually contact me, resolved ALL my issues, and even followed up to check on if things were still fine. AND the app works great. I am a very happy customer now. Recommended.
Great app!!
by Kid123321 on 2019/10/22 11:12
This is a great app!! I really like that you can lock in a decibel

Great app
Seems to be fairly accurate
by AzpyroGuy on 2019/08/09 02:38
I haven't tested it in a quiet room with a professional setup and calibration. But thats not what I wanted it for. I just needed something close, clean interface and was most of all ad free. It checked all those boxes so it was a good $2 spend.
SUPERLATIVE !
by Clever Bastard on 2019/07/27 22:02
Sometime when you just need to know what dB your hearing/creating; this great app measures that s!$& :)
Excellent App!

So I purchased the in app upgrade. It does nothing. Restoring purchase does nothing. Redownloading app does nothing. Save your money.

Disappointed, Upgraded to Premium but got no added functionality, Doesn't having damping or highest peak lock and only goes to 120, useless for industrial purposes.
Very Happy!

Clean Interface
by SCofBB on 2017/11/22 09:18
I cannot attest to the accuracy but I give this app high points for its clean user interface and for not looking like the Vegas strip. A few suggestions: (1) Would be very useful if it adjusted to a landscape view when the phone is tilted. In my office I would like to set my phone on its side. This seems like a no brainer. (2) The Reset High dialog box is jarring because it clashes so much with the UI. I suggest that a press and hold be an option to perform a reset OR just add another button... though a double tap on the Stop/Play button does the trick. Nice work.
Stunning masterpiece!
by royalkingdom005 on 2017/09/26 23:56
This is by far the best decibel meter I have ever seen. The amazing graphic design, the precise visual indicators, the accurate audio measurements have blown me away. Little descriptions of decibel ranges, average and max statistics, beautiful fluctuating graphs, and the ability to analyze the data you've been collecting only further confirms the fact that this visually appealing, sensitive but exact app would be perfect from academic purposes to industrial environments.
Great App.. 10 star!!
by eJangar on 2017/09/24 21:20
