Decibel Meter Pro
Our 5 senses are not perfect and can play tricks on us. Human ears are not that reliable when it comes to measuring the true levels of sounds going all around us. That is why audio engineers and those who deal with sounds for a living invest in expensive sound level meters to get accurate information all the time. Decibel Meter Pro won’t replace your professional sound level meter by any means. But it is a pretty decent application if you have trouble measuring the audio/sound level around you.
Decibel Meter Pro works almost the same way as Noise Sniffer. For starters, it has a beautiful interface that is nice to look at. Want to get quick sound level readings in your area? Just launch the app and let it go to work. It uses your phone’s microphone to measure sound level. The information will be displayed in large fonts on your screen. Average, peak, and max levels are shown.
Decibel Meter Pro is customizable too. You can change the sensitivity of it or change the way your device behaves when metering. We tested this app in our audio studio. It does seem to be fairly accurate. It won’t replace your professional sound measurement tools. But it is a nice app to have in your toolbox.
