What makes this different from the mini sound level meter?
This sound level meter offers a greater pickup range of sound than the miniature version. It also has two frequency weighting options which give two different types of measuring sound levels. ‘A’ frequency weighting is designed to reflect the response of the human ear, whereas ‘C’ weighting is more commonly used for the measurement of peak sound pressure levels.

What would I use this meter for?
This meter is ideal for use in environments where noise could be a danger to health and safety. You could use it on construction sites where heavy duty tools such as jackhammers are in operation, or at busy airports to show that ear protection is needed in these areas.

How easy is this meter to use?
This sound level meter has been designed with ease of use in mind. Simply press the power button and the meter gives you an instant reading that constantly updates every 0.5 seconds.

How accurate is the sound meter?
This sound level meter comes with a 3.5 digit, large LCD display with 0.1 resolution and is accurate to approximately ±3.5dB.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from as a low cost sound measurement instrument, this has certainly paid for itself many times over. tested it against other, more expensive equipment and performance was more than acceptable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Light compact, looks professional I bought this item to check noise level of lift in adjacent apartment, it worked well and did not fluctuate between readings

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Upside down. This product is almost perfect for my needs except I need to take measurements with the product some feet away from me with it facing in the opposite direction. I cannot read the numbers upside down. I need a screen which has an alternating option.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product It does what it says on the package. However not sure about dBC range, always comes high even when it is quiet.

Hi, I use this device quite a lot and have damaged the Microphone Sponge. It now has a hole in the top of it. I was wondering if it possible to pick up spares? Thank You

On this occasion Maplin do not stock a product that exactly meets your requirements, or indeed anything close enough to offer you as an alternative.

Can I record the noise levels over a period of time, and if so how?

Asked by: Dave
This does not record, it just gives the present noise level.
