    I know that sound meter apps are notoriously unreliable due to lack of calibration, but decibel 10th seems to have a calibration adjustment.  

    I was curious if anyone with a dedicated sound meter could compare the differences if any.  My experience seems like it is very close.  For example my garbage disposal is 85d, ambient back yard is 55-65d.    All reading i have measured seem to be very close to sound levels if have found on the web.  

    The part of the app that i think is a nice feature is the ability to increase/decrease decibel readings to adjust baseline readings, IE:  calibration adjustment

    Isn’t the thing with phone apps that they cant react fast enough to spikes in sound? IE shots?
