About Decibel X: dB, dBA Noise Meter

Developer Description

"Decibel X" is one of very few noise meter apps on the market that has highly reliable, pre-calibrated measurements and supports dBA, dBC. It turns your iOS device into a professional sound level meter, precisely measures the sound pressure level (SPL) all around you. This extremely useful and beautiful tool will not only be a great tool for many uses but also bring you a lot of fun. Have you wondered how quiet is your room or how loud is a rock concert or sport event? "Decibel X" will help you answer all of those. WHAT MAKE IT GREAT AND STAND OUT FROM OTHER APPS: - Trusted accuracy: the app is tested and pre calibrated for all Apple devices. The precision is matching with real SPL devices - Apple Watch support: see noise level right from your wrist - Frequency weighting filters: ITU-R 468, A, B, C, Z - Powerful, smart history data management: + Recording data can be saved into a list of history records for future access and analysis + Each record can be exported as hi-res PNG graph or CSV text via sharing services + iCloud support which synchronize all history records across your Apple devices + Fullscreen mode to give overview the whole history of an record - Dosimeter with NIOSH, OSHA standards - FFT and BAR graphs to display real time FFT. Those are very useful for frequency analysis and musical tests. Real time predominant frequency is also displayed. - WAVE graph with 2 display modes: Rolling & Buffer - InstaDecibel to capture your dB report overlaid on photos and easily shared via popular social networks (Facebook, Instagram, Messages, etc.). - Support both Portrait and Landscape layouts - Beautiful, intuitive and carefully crafted UI design - Optimized for iOS 11 OTHER GREAT FEATURES: - Standard time weightings (Response Time): SLOW (500 milliseconds) and FAST (200 milliseconds) - Trimming calibration from -15 dB to 15 dB - Standard measurement range from 30 dBA up to 130 dBA - HISTO graph for plotted history of the recorded values - Real time scale level chart - Display Current, Average/Leq, and Max values with both nice and clear digital and analog layouts - Quick reference text to help you compare with real-life examples - "Keep Device Stay Awake" option for long duration recording - Reset and clear current recording at any time - Tap on Max value to reset at any time - Pause/Resume the tool at any time NOTES: - Please do not expect a quiet room reading will be 0 dBA. The range 30-130 dBA is the standard usable range and an average quiet room will be about 30 dBA. - Although all devices are pre-calibrated, custom calibration is suggested for serious purposes requiring higher precision and accuracy. You will need a real external device or calibrated sound meter as a reference, then adjust the trimming calibration until the reading matches with the reference. If you like it or have suggestions, please support us by rating and giving us comments and feedback.

App Reviews

  • Really Nice; How About This.

    By MSLeach
    This is a great tool for audio enthusiast and semi pro apps.. very useful. How about this developer... what if you had a filter for the audio enthusiast that instead of showing air plane, riveter, streets noise, etc, it showed whispering, quiet conversation, normal conversation, public speaking, quiet church music, typical church music, loud church music, Jazz, Orchestra, Country Music Concert, Rap Music, Rock Concert. Each of these have associated typical levels such as... 60~67 Quiet Conversation 67~70 Normal Conversation 70~72 Public Speaking 82~92 Quiet Church Music 92~95 Typical Church Music 95~102 Loud Church Music 115~125 Rock Concert Etc... you get the idea These are all subject to I individual styles and preferences but the ideas is to get close, some type of base line for people who really have no idea what they’re doing but they knobs anyway (and you know who you are). This is very common in church music and small clubs where speakers mics are either so soft people lose interest or so loud it’s annoying. Or when the band is so soft it ruins the mood or so loud it’s dangerous to your ears. Many churches have no idea what is appropriate sound levels or what is borderline dangerous. I think this might be very helpful.
  • DB meter for pro use

    By Tzer
    I am a full-time professional audio engineer. I have run sound for a virtual who’s who in rock ‘n’ roll R&B, blues, funk, Motown, bluegrass, and for the most part country. I am currently working for a band that are Sony recording artist. The decibel meter does exactly what it should and does it well. I have paid many times this price for DB meters in the past that We’re just as accurate but nowhere near as convenient. This one is always at arms length when I need it … i’ve been using it for a year or so and I am submitting this review just to let you guys know how convenient,easy and accurate this app is to use.

  • New version works on XS MAX

    By Capt. Gizmo
    Developer responded to notify me that the new version works on the XS MAX. Glad to say it does. Unfortunately, the one time I needed it in months and months, was before it was fixed. Oh well, it’s a great utility though and nicely laid out. I can’t stand the ad header though. Holding back Pro features is fine, but I detest “ad removal” ransom on any app. This is mainly because it’s a distraction from the UX and, hopeful, thoughtful design that developers have poured into their apps...only to have them butchered by some ugly banner flying over part of their work.
  • Awareness of loud sounds

    By plug ping
    I was not aware how important my hearing was to me till my daughter, whom is a doctor brought to my attention about my hearing. she mentioned to me I don’t seem to be hearing so well. It dawned on me that at work. I work with a lot of loud machine (I’m a cook). I proceeded to looked up a free Doppler to help me judge sounds around me. It’s important to me that I keep my hearing about me, well into my 90’s., if I live that long. I carry w/ me now at all times ear plugs for my safety! Thank goodness for the free Doppler device!
  • Excellent

    By TSNewhart
    We needed a sound level meter to measure some barely audible mechanical sounds in an aircraft cockpit. This app worked perfectly. We then used it to measure extremely high sound levels to test passive sound attenuation of various combat helicopter flight helmets. Again the app provided extremely accurate and therefore useful data. Excellent piece of software. Highly recommended.
  • Excellent

    By Kfab12
    The app is easy to use and understand. Comparing it to the decibel meter I have from Radio Shack they are very close. It’s like comparing one temp thermometer to another, the usually don’t match but one degree or very close is good enough and that was the same when holding the two decibel meters side by side. Spend the $1.99 and get rid of those ads. I consider this decibel meter accurate (or in the ballpark) and dependable.
  • Great for older folks

    By Aruba4us
    Being of an older age but thinking like someone younger, this app allows me to understand why I get so annoyed in most restaurants, movie theaters, and other public places. I will now carry ear plugs and put them on at a particular sound level. Maybe this will help with my getting annoyed. Maybe cold restaurants and other places is your next app.
  • Retired CIH

    By OSHAretiredCIH
    As someone who used sound level meters over 35 years with OSHA this is an interesting concept. Technique for microphone orientation (perpendicular to line of noise or pointing directly at the source) could help with accuracy. Also, I could not find any peer reviewed professional articles on the accuracy of this device. I liked the integrating graphs and ability to change settings (fast/slow response, NIOSH/OSHA doubling) features.
  • Volunteer enthusiast

    By ThumpBangs
    I run sound as a volunteer at my church and in my own band. With my iPad sitting next to my smart monitor ? In comparison I am happy and confidant each programs measurement and am confident my field use is accurate enough for true adjustments even with the iPad mic. I like this app a lot and probably still will hook it up to a true reference mic but as is out of the box ? It's spot on.
  • Great little utility!

    By Medsmon
    I love this little decibel meter. While there is no easy way to calibrate it perfectly without having an absolute accuracy decibel meter for reference, it does a fantastic job of giving relative decibel measurements. And you can get the calibration quite close if you can find a very quiet room. Five stars for this great little utility!
