About this app

May 2023 Update - we are currently working on updating the app for the most recent operating system update. Appreciate your patience!

Find quiet places. Measure sound levels. Protect your hearing.
SoundPrint offers users access to the largest and only public database of sound levels taken at 100K+ venues worldwide. The easy to use app is an essential tool to find quiet places to connect with others and to preserve and promote hearing health.

Users (with select Samsung smartphone models) can also use the SoundPrint app as a decibel meter to measure sound levels and submit them to SoundPrint's database. At this time, ONLY Samsung S8, S9, S10, and S20 Galaxy series smartphones have calibrated decibel meters (NOT Samsung Note tablets). More models to be added soon! All other Android users can submit subjective sound level ratings.

SoundPrint is a member of the World Health Organization (WHO)’s World Hearing Forum, a global network of stakeholders promoting ear and hearing health care worldwide.

Download SoundPrint and join the QUIET mission

+ Search for venues (restaurants, cafes, arenas, retailers and more) based on noise level (quiet, moderate, or noisy)
+ Rate and submit the noise level of a venue to SoundPrint’s public database (actual decibel meter available for select Samsung models)
Note: Need to add Quiet List recommendation and Noise Complaint submission - this is very important
+ Share recommended venues with friends

+Calibrated decibel meter for certain Samsung Android phones!
+Bug fixes

+Why are the decibel meters only available for select Android devices?
Microphones across numerous Android hardware devices vary in quality and accuracy making calibration difficult (whereas the iOS system has more accurate and consistent microphones and software standards).
+How can I contribute to the database if I do not have the decibel meter?
Users can submit a subjective rating based on their personal impression of their surrounding sound level at a venue.

App is pretty solid and this is a concept that is desperately needed. Could use actual sound meter (not just on Samsung) and dark mode support, and being able to add somewhere you were earlier in the night, but what the app does right now, it does fine. Needs more users to get more useful data, but hopefully that will improve over time.

This is a very unique and essential app that assists us to find venues that offer a quiet environment so we can actually hear and enggage in meaningful conversations! The app is simple and easy to use and helps us to avoid those places where we can't hear our thoughts! Looking forward to when the decibel meter for the Android comes out on the app - fantastic concept!

I cannot believe there isn't a map view that would show the locations and their "color". Instead it is a list. Its like someone made a bike that runs on tracks instead of wheels. What the hell! I do like the idea though, and with extra effort this might be useful. But seems very unpolished due to the basic UX approach being so off (char limit) I see, but my review stays until the map view is the first and most promoted view of this app. Think if this was an electric scooter app. No list view!

Hi Max - there is a map functionality. On the screen you're referencing, on the upper right portion of the screen there is a "List/Map" toggle - it simply says "Map". Hope this helps. If for some reason, you're not seeing this on your app - please reach out to us directly and we'll work through it, etc.
