I've downloaded this app three times to different Samsung Galaxy S4 phones. It is very useful and I found it to be quite accurate. I have been dealing with land use issues at my business for five years. I have several grumpy neighbors who had been making very wild claims about the noise and vibrations at my site. I've hired a professional audio engineer to do sound studies and I was able to compare the readings of the Sound Meter Pro with highly accurate recording equipment. The Sound Meter Pro was producing readings that within +/- 1 dB relative to the $15,000.00 system the engineer was using. While the app would not be admissible in court and I cannot do 24 hour recordings that can be analyzed later, it does give a very good picture of what is happening in the moment and for brief recordings. An added benefit was finding that there is a vibrometer built into the app as well. This was extremely important in my land use issues as well. I was able to do a quick vibration study at the site that the land use hearings officer found far more compelling than the neighbors across the street claiming that the windows in their houses were rattling.
Very useful tool! I used the sound detector to locate worn out bearings in the engine compartment of my car and it worked!
Nice job. I use it to measure loud music.
I love it! A great little app. Fun and with a serious side on measuring sound exposure.
Why 180dB? My Nexus 5X only measures a maximum of 90dB, so it seems wasteful to have the decibel list go up to 180dB. Why not let pro users limit how high this chart goes?
Good little app Very handy for measuring noisy environments.
