Decibel Meter HD provides a way to measure environmental sound levels, showing the approximate dB level.

The app is based on the current calculations to determine the sound pressure level in dB.
Although we have tested the values with professional equipment, we can't ensure the
absolute correctness by international standard.

It also provides an approximate "decibel guide", so that you know what sound levels correspond to a health hazard.

The iPhone's built in microphone is sensitive from 0 to approximately 110 decibels.
Why aren't you getting a 0 decibel reading in a quiet room?
A decibel is an actual measurement of sound pressure
and aside from a vacuum chamber or out in space 0 dB is not really possible to read.
An average quiet room will be in the 40-50 dB range.
