We all risk exposure to harmful noises which could have an effect on the sensitive structure of the inner ear. I use the Decibel X app to measure the intensity of sound but then how accurate can the free apps be?

I haven't tried the app you mentioned. I use the free app that was created by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). It seems accurate to me. https://blogs.cdc.gov/niosh-science-blog/2017/01/17/slm-app/

I think that we often get exposed to dangerous noise levels, without even realizing it. I would easily go for the NIOSH Sound Level Meter app that meets certain testing criteria. It is equally important to settle on accurate app.
