Description
"The best way to meter sound levels" - AppAdvice Decibel Meter is full of features sound level meter with exclusive accuracy of measurements and integrated spectrum analyzer. Calibrated with professional db meter. The world is a noisy place: cars, power tools, crowds, machinery, and other common sources produce amounts of noise that can, with continued exposure, lead to permanent hearing loss. Sound level meters are useful for anyone who wants to avoid exposing their ears to harmful noise levels, but who wants to spend hundreds of dollars on one? db meter is free app which provides professional-quality measurement results, calibrated using an actual Nor140 high-precision decibel meter. With db meter, you can measure ambient noise levels, save your measurements and their locations, and share your measurements with others. db meter couples utility with stylish design and a polished user experience: a powerful tool in a sleek package, and at a tiny fraction of the cost of professional sound level meters. (Please note that db meter soundmeter app is not a replacement for professional devices and should be used for personal purposes only.) FEATURES: ● Saves location data for each measurement. ● Save measurements with custom names and rename existing measurements. ● Export measurements in CSV or Audio format. ● Allows you to save, export and play back recorded measurements. ● Highly accurate measurements. ● Integrated Fully Functional spectrum analyzer ● Octave Band Real Time Analyzer ● FFT Plot (Fast Fourier Transform) ● Linear and logarithm scales ● Up to 16384 FFT size ● A lot of available window functions ● Tracking for max value ● Max and Min for any selected frequency ● Stunned graphics Have any questions or suggestions? Write to us: support@dbmeterpro.com DB Chart 150-160 dB = Eardrum rupture 140 decibel = Aircraft carrier deck. 130 dB = Jet take-off (100 meters), gun blast at close range. 120 dB= Human pain threshold, loud rock concert. 110 decibel = Serious hearing damage if sustained for more than 1 hour. 100 dB = Serious hearing damage if sustained for more than 8 hours. 90 decibel = Likely hearing damage if sustained for more than 8 hours. 80 decibel = Potential but unlikely hearing damage if sustained for more than 8 hours. 70 dB = Just annoying, but probably safe. 60 dB= Typical conversational volume. 50 dB = A quiet, library conversation. 40 decibel = A whisper. 30 dB= Barely audible sound. 20 decibel= Threshold of human hearing.
Now I know how loud the television is at home!

I love the app. I purchased it some time ago and now my purchase isn’t restoring.
Great app!!!!

Nice to have a meter like this in your pocket or on your wrist. Well done!
Doesn’t seem to register loud invironments
by guycguy guy on 2018/08/19 00:22
I am not sure if I know how to operate it. But several places were so loud you couldn’t talk and the meter registered quiet street.

Keeps trying to sell me a Pro version
by Frog Grigson on 2018/01/10 00:20
Totally unacceptable. Also, the amateur who designed the UI doesn’t like combo boxes. Instead, you get a button that cycles through all the options. Laughably bad UI design.
Upsell

Latest update takes away the ability to use the app for an unlimited amount of time, which we previously paid for.

Having purchased this app, I was quite pleases, however, after a recent update, suddenly a feature that I rely upon is broken as after a few minutes of use the screen is replaced by an advertisement.
With hearing aids
by denied1313 on 2017/10/30 19:24
Profoundly hard of hearing. I use this app to determine what normal sound is, adjust tv, then adjust aids so everyone is hearing at same volume level.
Really handy tool
by twalkersr on 2017/08/26 17:52
Having a tool to measure sound level anywhere, anytime is very helpful. I'm using it to gauge the effectiveness of sound insulation on my in-house air handler. Otherwise, it would be only guesswork. Great app!!

Great app!
by John Sheetz on 2017/03/22 18:04
This is an awesome app. I'm an audio engineer for my church but we can't afford SMAART or any of those awesome RTAs. This app is a great substitute. It could use a couple improvements. On the RTA, there's a bar you can use to help you find a frequency, but it doesn't tell you what frequency you're on. It would be awesome if next to the bar it told you what frequency you're on and what the relative dB reading is. Also I do like that the app runs in the background, I just wish it didn't freeze and reset every time I go back into the app. We use Planning Center as well, so I switch back and forth between the apps a lot. Overall, great app that could use a few tweaks to make it better. 4.5/5 stars.

I use it to make sure I have our sound machine for our kids set at an appropriate noise level. Super convenient.
Great app!
by videojeff on 2017/01/28 14:54
I have developed tinnitus over the years and I don't want to make it any worse. So long, in the ear earbuds... I still like to rock out with the great home stereo gear that I have, and this app lets me see at a glance if I'm overdoing it. It's also great to know just how crazy loud it can get in a car. Snow tires increase the interior loudness by a lot... Save your ears! It's worth it.
Used product since release
by jscoggi on 2017/01/21 14:54
Developers have kept the app updated since 2011 and continue to improve it, clean, beautiful,and simple UI but filled with the information you need to monitor and analyze any acoustic environment I have used it to monitor ambient noise in empty concert halls, classrooms and houses, as well as silly stuff like proving how loud someone snores ;-)
Excellent!

Sweet Decibel Meter
by Seth Pearson on 2016/12/16 08:04
Great iOS and watchOS app. Appreciate the noise level exposure charts built in, I always forget the different recommendations. One thing I'd change, is get rid of the 3D rotation transition. It gives me pre iOS 7 vibes.
Works great! Have compared it to pro meters
by Lunarlarry on 2016/09/18 07:27
Being an AV technician and DJ on the side I found this to be very useful balancing systems and keeping in line with local sound ordinances. Works best with my iPhone out of case and held upside down
Works OK
by duckbearpig on 2016/09/15 12:04
I'm honestly not sure what to do with this app. It seems to record varying decibel levels ok, but I can't export the saved audio clips, it's like it's glitched or something. I would like to see the clips play with a bar graph of the decibel levels and also it would be nice to hear the audio and pinpoint in the audio event where the peak is. This app needs some work as it's really only a one trick pony right now.
dB Meter
by mojo191 on 2016/06/19 04:40
Very helpful for use in comparing and balancing the volume levels of recorded tracks when assembling them for a CD.
Nice proof.
by Billycase on 2016/04/01 05:31
Neighbors who would have you believe that your music is too loud will want to reconsider giving you grief when you can prove the actual volume. Takes much of the subjectivity out of neighborly complaints.

On a committee to redesign a senior condo dining room. Noise level is top complaint. This app has been very helpful to determine the ambient noise level and whether we should take steps to absorb sound in that room.

Terrific tool
by RPW27514 on 2015/10/12 20:48
This is an easy to use app that is a must have for anyone interested in protecting their hearing. I highly recommend it. The app developer is quick to answer questions and provide support.
Good db meter
by Sm2post on 2015/08/08 03:19
Very smart, easy to use and accurate db meter. GPS location is what I need for my reports and this app let me send the record for each location. 5 stars
Awful
by caseypenk on 2015/05/25 04:39
Good design is all this has got. When you switch to another app and then come back it stops measuring.. It displays the peak as 0. The peak isn't as instantaneous as on competing apps, and it's not a peak anyways (it's the current level). The graph doesn't provide much useful information — a free app can do better. What a waste of money.

Does the job surprisingly well
by Mekinol on 2014/08/01 14:34
Side by comparison with another calibrated meter using wide dB span of white noise and real life sounds showed very close results with minimal adjustment to app. The app provides reasonable data that is helpful for basic sound evaluation. A certified and calibrated meter would be required if you are involved in a technical or legal matter.
Almost perfect
by Sahara Spring on 2014/07/13 16:17
I love this App and the ability to save records. I would have given 5 stars if there were a way to clear the data, or a way to contact tech support about this.
Garbage app
by Jonny500 on 2014/06/22 13:45
The app shows a db rating of 55 even in complete silence. Completely inaccurate. Horrible layout as well and no instructions in the app. I tried calibrating it and it didn't work. Garbage app. Heavily do NOT recommend.
Fantastic Decimeter!
by "signature" on 2014/05/08 03:30
Literally the best decibel app on the App Store. I needed to use a decimeter for a physics project and this was the only one I could find that was consistent and easy to use! 👍
Thanks Vlad!
by shin_jeremy_333 on 2014/05/04 15:49
Near perfect Db meter in a modern and sleek iPhone 5 laid out screen. The only issue I saw was a spelling issue. "Rusting" Leaves should be Rustling Leaves. I won't let that keep it from 5 stars though.
What's the point?
by Jessiewoowoo31 on 2014/03/07 18:42
Yeah this app works okay. But really I don't see I point to it. Cool to mess around with for like 5 minutes and then never open again.

Very handy on measuring db in surrounding area . Great to use at sports events to see how loud it is, or just around the house. It is great for the price and is pretty accurate
See report number 3 below
by No app ad-man on 2014/01/25 00:01
(See update) (original review--5 stars). The calibration feature is uncommon among sound level apps–good feature. Clean design. The addition of a higher contrast screen toggle would be awesome. Another app that makes our phones that much more useful. (Update--3 stars). I want to like this app. Developer states for personal use. Suspect most higher ratings from those who haven't confirmed operation of app. I have since checked against Quest metering and calibration equipment. There's no easy way to calibrate this app without crashing. Tried everything: reset phone, shutdown/restarted phone, try calibrating again and again (5s).... Won't get into specific readings and numbers. Bottom line: not accurate as I hoped it would be but find it roughly acceptable for gross measurements only--quiet, noisy, loud enough to probably need hearing protection--dbA only. DbB, dbC not even close. To be fair let's consider that the app resides on a "phone". Be careful. 3 stars down from 5. (Report 3, Jan. 24, 4 stars) Update released January 24… Good news, at least for me, no more crashing during calibration of DbA. But, DbA calibration tricky at higher noise levels. Measures accurately at mid levels. (See #value delta of cal. screen vs. live measure screen). Developer: thank you for conscientious updates. On your way to "best-of" app Users: quick note – remember to hold your phone upside down, microphone in the air, not in the palm of your hand blocking microphone. Developer--possible tweak for future updates??-flip screen 180 degrees feature!!

Description
"The best way to meter sound levels" - AppAdvice Decibel Meter is full of features sound level meter with exclusive accuracy of measurements and integrated spectrum analyzer. Calibrated with professional db meter. The world is a noisy place: cars, power tools, crowds, machinery, and other common sources produce amounts of noise that can, with continued exposure, lead to permanent hearing loss. Sound level meters are useful for anyone who wants to avoid exposing their ears to harmful noise levels, but who wants to spend hundreds of dollars on one? db meter is free app which provides professional-quality measurement results, calibrated using an actual Nor140 high-precision decibel meter. With db meter, you can measure ambient noise levels, save your measurements and their locations, and share your measurements with others. db meter couples utility with stylish design and a polished user experience: a powerful tool in a sleek package, and at a tiny fraction of the cost of professional sound level meters. (Please note that db meter soundmeter app is not a replacement for professional devices and should be used for personal purposes only.) FEATURES: ● Saves location data for each measurement. ● Save measurements with custom names and rename existing measurements. ● Export measurements in CSV or Audio format. ● Allows you to save, export and play back recorded measurements. ● Highly accurate measurements. ● Integrated Fully Functional spectrum analyzer ● Octave Band Real Time Analyzer ● FFT Plot (Fast Fourier Transform) ● Linear and logarithm scales ● Up to 16384 FFT size ● A lot of available window functions ● Tracking for max value ● Max and Min for any selected frequency ● Stunned graphics Have any questions or suggestions? Write to us: support@dbmeterpro.com DB Chart 150-160 dB = Eardrum rupture 140 decibel = Aircraft carrier deck. 130 dB = Jet take-off (100 meters), gun blast at close range. 120 dB= Human pain threshold, loud rock concert. 110 decibel = Serious hearing damage if sustained for more than 1 hour. 100 dB = Serious hearing damage if sustained for more than 8 hours. 90 decibel = Likely hearing damage if sustained for more than 8 hours. 80 decibel = Potential but unlikely hearing damage if sustained for more than 8 hours. 70 dB = Just annoying, but probably safe. 60 dB= Typical conversational volume. 50 dB = A quiet, library conversation. 40 decibel = A whisper. 30 dB= Barely audible sound. 20 decibel= Threshold of human hearing.
Now I know how loud the television is at home!

I love the app. I purchased it some time ago and now my purchase isn’t restoring.
Great app!!!!

Nice to have a meter like this in your pocket or on your wrist. Well done!
Doesn’t seem to register loud invironments
by guycguy guy on 2018/08/19 00:22
I am not sure if I know how to operate it. But several places were so loud you couldn’t talk and the meter registered quiet street.

Keeps trying to sell me a Pro version
by Frog Grigson on 2018/01/10 00:20
Totally unacceptable. Also, the amateur who designed the UI doesn’t like combo boxes. Instead, you get a button that cycles through all the options. Laughably bad UI design.
Upsell

Latest update takes away the ability to use the app for an unlimited amount of time, which we previously paid for.

Having purchased this app, I was quite pleases, however, after a recent update, suddenly a feature that I rely upon is broken as after a few minutes of use the screen is replaced by an advertisement.
With hearing aids
by denied1313 on 2017/10/30 19:24
Profoundly hard of hearing. I use this app to determine what normal sound is, adjust tv, then adjust aids so everyone is hearing at same volume level.
Really handy tool
by twalkersr on 2017/08/26 17:52
Having a tool to measure sound level anywhere, anytime is very helpful. I'm using it to gauge the effectiveness of sound insulation on my in-house air handler. Otherwise, it would be only guesswork. Great app!!

by John Sheetz on 2017/03/22 18:04
This is an awesome app. I'm an audio engineer for my church but we can't afford SMAART or any of those awesome RTAs. This app is a great substitute. It could use a couple improvements. On the RTA, there's a bar you can use to help you find a frequency, but it doesn't tell you what frequency you're on. It would be awesome if next to the bar it told you what frequency you're on and what the relative dB reading is. Also I do like that the app runs in the background, I just wish it didn't freeze and reset every time I go back into the app. We use Planning Center as well, so I switch back and forth between the apps a lot. Overall, great app that could use a few tweaks to make it better. 4.5/5 stars.

I use it to make sure I have our sound machine for our kids set at an appropriate noise level. Super convenient.
Great app!
by videojeff on 2017/01/28 14:54
I have developed tinnitus over the years and I don't want to make it any worse. So long, in the ear earbuds... I still like to rock out with the great home stereo gear that I have, and this app lets me see at a glance if I'm overdoing it. It's also great to know just how crazy loud it can get in a car. Snow tires increase the interior loudness by a lot... Save your ears! It's worth it.
Used product since release
by jscoggi on 2017/01/21 14:54
Developers have kept the app updated since 2011 and continue to improve it, clean, beautiful,and simple UI but filled with the information you need to monitor and analyze any acoustic environment I have used it to monitor ambient noise in empty concert halls, classrooms and houses, as well as silly stuff like proving how loud someone snores ;-)
Excellent!

Sweet Decibel Meter
by Seth Pearson on 2016/12/16 08:04
Great iOS and watchOS app. Appreciate the noise level exposure charts built in, I always forget the different recommendations. One thing I'd change, is get rid of the 3D rotation transition. It gives me pre iOS 7 vibes.
Works great! Have compared it to pro meters
by Lunarlarry on 2016/09/18 07:27
Being an AV technician and DJ on the side I found this to be very useful balancing systems and keeping in line with local sound ordinances. Works best with my iPhone out of case and held upside down
Works OK
by duckbearpig on 2016/09/15 12:04
I'm honestly not sure what to do with this app. It seems to record varying decibel levels ok, but I can't export the saved audio clips, it's like it's glitched or something. I would like to see the clips play with a bar graph of the decibel levels and also it would be nice to hear the audio and pinpoint in the audio event where the peak is. This app needs some work as it's really only a one trick pony right now.
dB Meter
by mojo191 on 2016/06/19 04:40
Very helpful for use in comparing and balancing the volume levels of recorded tracks when assembling them for a CD.
Nice proof.
by Billycase on 2016/04/01 05:31
Neighbors who would have you believe that your music is too loud will want to reconsider giving you grief when you can prove the actual volume. Takes much of the subjectivity out of neighborly complaints.

On a committee to redesign a senior condo dining room. Noise level is top complaint. This app has been very helpful to determine the ambient noise level and whether we should take steps to absorb sound in that room.

Terrific tool
by RPW27514 on 2015/10/12 20:48
This is an easy to use app that is a must have for anyone interested in protecting their hearing. I highly recommend it. The app developer is quick to answer questions and provide support.
Good db meter
by Sm2post on 2015/08/08 03:19
Very smart, easy to use and accurate db meter. GPS location is what I need for my reports and this app let me send the record for each location. 5 stars
Awful
by caseypenk on 2015/05/25 04:39
Good design is all this has got. When you switch to another app and then come back it stops measuring.. It displays the peak as 0. The peak isn't as instantaneous as on competing apps, and it's not a peak anyways (it's the current level). The graph doesn't provide much useful information — a free app can do better. What a waste of money.

Does the job surprisingly well
by Mekinol on 2014/08/01 14:34
Side by comparison with another calibrated meter using wide dB span of white noise and real life sounds showed very close results with minimal adjustment to app. The app provides reasonable data that is helpful for basic sound evaluation. A certified and calibrated meter would be required if you are involved in a technical or legal matter.
Almost perfect
by Sahara Spring on 2014/07/13 16:17
I love this App and the ability to save records. I would have given 5 stars if there were a way to clear the data, or a way to contact tech support about this.
Garbage app
by Jonny500 on 2014/06/22 13:45
The app shows a db rating of 55 even in complete silence. Completely inaccurate. Horrible layout as well and no instructions in the app. I tried calibrating it and it didn't work. Garbage app. Heavily do NOT recommend.
Fantastic Decimeter!
by "signature" on 2014/05/08 03:30
Literally the best decibel app on the App Store. I needed to use a decimeter for a physics project and this was the only one I could find that was consistent and easy to use! 👍
Thanks Vlad!
by shin_jeremy_333 on 2014/05/04 15:49
Near perfect Db meter in a modern and sleek iPhone 5 laid out screen. The only issue I saw was a spelling issue. "Rusting" Leaves should be Rustling Leaves. I won't let that keep it from 5 stars though.
What's the point?
by Jessiewoowoo31 on 2014/03/07 18:42
Yeah this app works okay. But really I don't see I point to it. Cool to mess around with for like 5 minutes and then never open again.

Very handy on measuring db in surrounding area . Great to use at sports events to see how loud it is, or just around the house. It is great for the price and is pretty accurate
See report number 3 below
by No app ad-man on 2014/01/25 00:01
(See update) (original review--5 stars). The calibration feature is uncommon among sound level apps–good feature. Clean design. The addition of a higher contrast screen toggle would be awesome. Another app that makes our phones that much more useful. (Update--3 stars). I want to like this app. Developer states for personal use. Suspect most higher ratings from those who haven't confirmed operation of app. I have since checked against Quest metering and calibration equipment. There's no easy way to calibrate this app without crashing. Tried everything: reset phone, shutdown/restarted phone, try calibrating again and again (5s).... Won't get into specific readings and numbers. Bottom line: not accurate as I hoped it would be but find it roughly acceptable for gross measurements only--quiet, noisy, loud enough to probably need hearing protection--dbA only. DbB, dbC not even close. To be fair let's consider that the app resides on a "phone". Be careful. 3 stars down from 5. (Report 3, Jan. 24, 4 stars) Update released January 24… Good news, at least for me, no more crashing during calibration of DbA. But, DbA calibration tricky at higher noise levels. Measures accurately at mid levels. (See #value delta of cal. screen vs. live measure screen). Developer: thank you for conscientious updates. On your way to "best-of" app Users: quick note – remember to hold your phone upside down, microphone in the air, not in the palm of your hand blocking microphone. Developer--possible tweak for future updates??-flip screen 180 degrees feature!!
