Measure the noise levels around you.
With our Noise Exposure App you can estimate the noise level around you. Use it to measure
noise at work, in your car or at your local sporting event.
In the Noise Exposure App you can:
• Measure sound levels in real time.
• Save and compare measurements over time.
• Learn about noise levels and regulations.
How does it work?
Hold the phone away from your body. Then direct the microphone at the bottom of your phone towards the noise you wish to measure. Start measuring by tapping the button. The app will keep measuring until you tap it again. Once finished, it will show the average value for your measurement. You can then choose to save and name your measurement. You will also have the option to share it with your friends or colleagues.
In the app you will find useful information about noise levels and regulations. You can also visit our website for more information about noise, regulations and when it becomes harmful to you. Our website also allows you to make more detailed calculations and estimates of noise in and around your workplace (in Swedish only).
Measuring with the noise exposure app can give you a good indication of the noise levels around you – at your workplace for example. Due to the phones’ limitations, the app does not fulfil European or international standards for sound level meters.
If your measurement shows that the sound levels are too high, we recommend you proceed by doing more accurate measurements with professional equipment. iPhones generally measure sounds well between 40 dB and 100 dB. But the microphones can differ in quality. Always use a professional sound level meter if you want accurate results.
If you do experience high sound levels at your workplace. Reach out to your employer. They are the ones responsible for making sure your work environment is safe. This includes taking preventative measures to ensure that the sound levels are not harmful to you or others.

I find this program very usefull.
Duer ikke. Måler 10 dB forkert.
Excellent idea, useless implementation
On iPod touch 4th gen: quiet talking at 1m results in measurements in the 90-100dB range. And seemingly no calibration options :-(
