Background noise in our environment is something we tend to ignore. Environments with loud background noise have a significant impact on the hearing impaired, and those with auditory sensitivity, but also affect our entire population. It is time to pay attention to the sound levels in our surroundings, and recognize how it affects our health.
High sound levels are linked to many physical health issues. These levels also contribute to stress, and can permanently affect hearing over time.
The Lessersound app is designed to do three things:
AWARENESS – Create awareness to sound levels in your environment.
EDUCATION – Educate you on the risks of the sound levels you are experiencing.
ASSISTANCE – Assist you in finding locations with sound levels that meet your needs.

Every sound reading a user takes is stored in a database. This database is accessible to all users, so users can learn about the sound level of an environment before they are in it, or search for an environment with a sound level most comfortable to them.
