soundlevel: Decibel Reading
Description
sound level is a simple but powerful tool for getting a quick sound reading of the current environment. The readings have been calibrated to dBA, which is a weighting that matches the human ear, and sound level provides comparison values so you know what the sound is equal to. All results are graphed so you can go back in time and take a look. If you have the pro features (a one time in-app purchase), you even have the ability to export your results as a CSV file! Key features: * Quick sound level measurements * Beautiful, intuitive UI * Peak and max volume count * Baseline sound comparisons sound level is that must have app for quick and painless sound measurements.
Lot's of lag time, not very accurate.

Used this meter while chaperoning a high school dance. It did not work very well. As a physicist I also had an Extech dedicated meter. This app never matched the Extech. Even with obvious changes in loudness (song stopped) the meter did not change its reading. Downloaded Decibel 10th and it worked much better.

Worked fine

It was fine for me, it worked fine and was accurate, but it takes up so much space that I had to delete it.
A joke?
by fourpssss on 2011/11/05 01:52
I tested it in a GnR concert. Amazingly in and out of the arena its the same level of Db.
No way
by Catfish77 on 2011/08/03 13:27
I sniffed and it read 70 decibels.
Not accurate

Please, don't even waste your time with this app. Look elsewhere.
Accurate. Easy. Wonderful
by Gunship1 on 2011/03/12 16:40
Measurement of dB levels corresponds very well with my professional dB meter. Surprisingly accurate. Much better than other apps I tried. If u want a numerical reading upgrade to pro version. Kudos.
Fake App!!
by Lonewo1f007 on 2010/11/18 13:20
Don't waste your time on this app. I hardly ever write any reviews but felt compelled to write this one. This app is a fake, it doesn't work, I wasn't expecting miracles for free but come on 70 decibels being registered on an iPod touch with NO microphone attached!!
Simple but does exactly as advertised

Scrutinize w/ your own tests!! Awesome!

Turn on your "shop vac" That's about 70db I "tested/tried" this app because I run a WVO centrifuge in my neighborhood garage. I also have my 37" Vizio blaring (so I can hear it over the centrifuge). Well I'm thinking about moving my operation to the back of my place, yet need "quiet" so not to upset neighbors. This thing was 100% spot on for my noise tests!!! I gave it 5-10 relative tests. Always coming back to the centrifuge to calibrate. Spot-on!

Well, it's free, and gives me just what I need: the decibel rating of the sound. It works fine on my iPhone 3GS, directly from the built-in microphone. It's free, so I'm not asking for much--and it works, so I'm happy :)

EVERYTHING is 70 to 92 db
by Mindtickler on 2009/10/24 04:33
I've been to several rock concerts and if the band isn't playing at all the app registers 70 db. If they play a heavy song it registers 92 db. Then when it's REALLY loud (I used earplugs) it still registers only 92 db. I tried rotating my iPhone in several different positions with no change. Pro version shows same issues according to reviews. Fun to try but don't rely on accuracy.
Doesn't go to 110
by Metal dan on 2009/10/17 06:40
Says it goes to 110 with the mic but still Peaks at 92.

Works well for it's simplicty as a lite app; as for the advertisements, well it is a lite version, and that's a normal occurence, so there really isn't a necessity to complain.

I've been to several rock concerts and if the band isn't playing at all the app registers 70 db. If they play a heavy song it registers 92 db. Then when it's REALLY loud (I used earplugs) it still registers only 92 db. I tried rotating my iPhone in several different positions with no change. Pro version shows same issues according to reviews. Fun to try but don't rely on accuracy.
Doesn't go to 110
by Metal dan on 2009/10/17 06:40
Says it goes to 110 with the mic but still Peaks at 92.
Must use
by Xhizorsvamp on 2009/09/24 14:01
This app is pretty good & helpfull for checking sounds.There is no point spending on expensive gadgets. I never had any problem with this.Keep it up.

Works well for it's simplicty as a lite app; as for the advertisements, well it is a lite version, and that's a normal occurence, so there really isn't a necessity to complain.
Amazing
by Kylegier on 2009/09/16 00:56
It works as it should. Its the best. Even better than the voice memos app
Worst app

Crashed my iPod touch
Cool app

Cool app. Very good for quick level of noise check.
Get rid of the ads
by jPicks on 2009/08/23 17:57
I have little tolerance for advirtisements flashing across my screen, free app or not. And, the constant request to update to the paid version - perfectly inelegant. I'm removing this app asap.
Great app
by Ak47love on 2009/08/23 07:33
Great app, pulled over by a cop saying my exhaust is too loud, but he doesn't have a decible meter to ticket me, pull my phone out and proved him wrong
Great free app
by Jsafety on 2009/08/18 19:08
Won't replace expensive monitors but great for boring days in the field
Not bad :-)
by rjg1968 on 2009/08/15 01:35
Ok this app is pretty good very helpful for sound checks. And for all the stupid people tht r like "well it doesn't work for my itouch" maybe u should try buying a microphone like I did. It's 40 bucks at best buy !!!!!!!
Excellent for what it was made for!
by Skulldragger on 2009/08/06 01:26
Use it all the time running sound booth at church. Never has a problem.
Great! Please read itouch users!
by ZachKurth on 2009/05/26 02:35
OF COURSE IT DOESNT WORK ON THE ITOUCH! THE ITOUCH HAS AN INTEGREATED MIC THAT HAS NOT BEEN INCLUDED IN THE MOST RECENT UPDATE! GET THE MIC EARPHONES!!!
It's good
by Matgetsan on 2009/05/24 23:28
It works great but a little pointless
It works but...
by Blargie on 2009/05/23 16:44
It is a waste unless u need to find decibels or something
It doesent work

Worked fine
by Oobgular on 2011/12/20 19:58
It was fine for me, it worked fine and was accurate, but it takes up so much space that I had to delete it.
Scrutinize w/ your own tests!! Awesome!
by dslnut on 2010/09/29 03:50
Turn on your "shop vac" That's about 70db I "tested/tried" this app because I run a WVO centrifuge in my neighborhood garage. I also have my 37" Vizio blaring (so I can hear it over the centrifuge). Well I'm thinking about moving my operation to the back of my place, yet need "quiet" so not to upset neighbors. This thing was 100% spot on for my noise tests!!! I gave it 5-10 relative tests. Always coming back to the centrifuge to calibrate. Spot-on!
Basic sound meter, works on 3GS
by KObano on 2010/06/02 01:43
Well, it's free, and gives me just what I need: the decibel rating of the sound. It works fine on my iPhone 3GS, directly from the built-in microphone. It's free, so I'm not asking for much--and it works, so I'm happy :)

by Jason9209 on 2010/05/01 19:40
If you just want something to check an analog reading of the current db, then get this app!
Lot's of lag time, not very accurate.
by tachyonbb on 2012/12/11 20:58
Used this meter while chaperoning a high school dance. It did not work very well. As a physicist I also had an Extech dedicated meter. This app never matched the Extech. Even with obvious changes in loudness (song stopped) the meter did not change its reading. Downloaded Decibel 10th and it worked much better.
Simple but does exactly as advertised
by Mark in Tahoe on 2010/10/06 15:28
Worth the small change to upgrade to Pro
Great app

Was about to run sound and forgot my db meter at home. I got on the app store down loaded this app and it saved me. It works great!!!!!

I can easily say that this is 1 of the best Apps I've ever used when shopp for products as a Gamer / Airbrush Artist...... Thanks guys.
It's more of a conversation app
by Jazz2010 on 2010/01/20 21:51
I don't really believe it is that accurate. Averaging and recent history would be features to add before I would pay money for this app assuming the accuracy issue gets addressed.
Fake App!!
by Lonewo1f007 on 2010/11/18 13:20
Don't waste your time on this app. I hardly ever write any reviews but felt compelled to write this one. This app is a fake, it doesn't work, I wasn't expecting miracles for free but come on 70 decibels being registered on an iPod touch with NO microphone attached!!
It works but...

This application does not work however it is just an advertisement to purchase the upgrade instead.

Ok
by Diggidydog1 on 2010/01/14 22:25
People who say it doesn't work. You probabbly need a microphone to use this. You can buy them on ebay
upgrade needs an upgrade
by skendrix on 2010/01/10 20:28
really no need to upgrade from free version…does not show peak level so this app is useless, you can't get any accuracy…a simple peak hold function would fix that…the developers must know this…duh
Weak
by Chimacy on 2009/12/02 19:26
This app blows. Worst I've downloaded thus far. Really just an ad for full version
Joke
by The_Original_Spartan007 on 2010/08/26 21:38
This app doesn't even work.
A joke?
by fourpssss on 2011/11/05 01:52
I tested it in a GnR concert. Amazingly in and out of the arena its the same level of Db.

Measurement of dB levels corresponds very well with my professional dB meter. Surprisingly accurate. Much better than other apps I tried. If u want a numerical reading upgrade to pro version. Kudos.
Not bad :-)
