Tech to Help Avoid the Noise

With loud music, high ceilings, and hard surfaces that don’t absorb sound, restaurants now find noise to be the top complaint. It can be hard to follow a conversation in this environment. Now there are apps to take decibel readings, before choosing a place for gathering and eating.

SoundPrint, iHEARu and others are working to compile decibel readings at public venues that go beyond Yelp’s customer ratings of background noise such as “average”. You can measure for yourself using Decibel X, Sound Meter, and NIOSH Sound Level, available for free. Normal conversation is about 60 decibels. If a restaurant’s noise is 70 – 80 decibels, you will need to speak up. New York City restaurants average 77 decibels, bars 81 decibels.
