How App Works

Please see two videos below for how to:

(1) Take a SoundCheck

Measure the venue’s sound level and submit it to the database

Whenever out at a venue, begin with taking a SoundCheck and submitting the reading to the database. 

(2) Search for venues based on how quiet or noisy they are and other variables (by cuisine type, venue type, distance, and sound levels)

  • The Filter button allows you to adjust the search mile distance radius – default is 1 mile – so if you are in a suburban area, increase the distance
  • Also allows you to search by sound level category – i.e., you can choose to only see quiet places, moderate places, loud places or some combination

Note(s): (1) If you are located in an area where there have not been many submissions, the map will show black blank pins until more submissions are done. (2) The videos are a visual example of how the app works – no words are spoken (hence no subtitles)
