About this app

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.

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!

The app is a good start. There are too many restaurants in this area with sound levels that are too high. The app needs a sound meter. I would be fine giving location permission when I'm in a location taking a sound level reading. Please add those features to the app. Also please modify the app so it works on my tablet in landscape mode. Thanks!

Awesome resource for people with difficulty with hearing. Helps find pages where I can eat with my mom and still hold a conversation. It also provides a ton of links to amazing resources relevant to those with hearing loss!
