Join SoundPrint's "Find Your Quiet Place Challenge" During "Protect Your Hearing Month" in October

Use the crowdsourcing SoundPrint app and your smartphone to measure sound levels at local venues

Soundprint Challenge 2023

SoundPrint's "Find Your Quiet Place Challenge" is held in October and focuses on crowdsourcing data on the noise levels of your local favorite coffee shops, restaurants, bars, and other venues to make it easier to find quieter places for conversations.

SoundPrint, a hearing health app, is promoting hearing health awareness in October with the SoundPrint Find Your Quiet Place Challenge.

During the month of October, 30+ prominent hearing related organizations will participate in the 2023 FYQP Challenge to collect sound level data using the SoundPrint App.

Sound measurements from the Challenge will enable SoundPrint to advocate for safe noise levels, help communities find quieter places, and protect the public’s hearing health.

It’s fun, easy, and prizes will be awarded! You're invited to join the challenge!

The details

Beginning Sunday, October 1 and continuing through the 31st, attention will be focused on sound levels in your community by taking sound measurements in public venues to promote hearing health awareness.

Use the SoundPrint app to frequently measure sound levels at local venues (restaurants, parks, shops, offices, theaters, cafes). The goal is to measure and submit as many sound levels as possible. Prizes will be awarded by SoundPrint to the most dedicated participants!

Using the SoundPrint app is simple. Once downloaded, your smartphone turns into a decibel meter allowing you to take sound measurements everywhere you go and submit them to the app’s database.

Visit the FYQP webpage to download the app, register for the Challenge, get the details on prizes and more.

About Soundprint

SoundPrint allows you to discover the quieter venues in your city. Using the app’s internal decibel meter, you can measure the actual noise level of any venue, which is then submitted to a SoundPrint database that anyone can access to find out if a certain venue is quiet or loud. A database for your city is created and, with each submission, is enriched and becomes more valuable. In addition, submitting SoundPrint measurements is an effective way to tell venue managers that you and others care about noise levels and that they should mitigate the increasing din.
