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.

+ Share recommended venues with friends
+Calibrated decibel meter for certain Samsung Android phones!
+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.
