NOTE: This sound level meter uses built-in microphone to measure ambient noise level, so the app is not as reliable as a professional noise meter, but it gives approximate values. The maximum values can be limited by the device (often limit is in a range 80 dB – 90 dB ). Very loud sounds may not be recognized.
Some devices are equipped with AGC (Automatic Gain Control). This system causes additional sound pressure level measurement error.
