[Video] How To Measure Echo In A Room

Gianluca Uncategorized 4 Comments

In the previous video of this series I showed you 3 simple tricks you can use to reduce echo in a room. In this video I’m going to show you how to measure the echo in a room.

Because it’s useful to put a number on the level of echo you can tolerate. That’s gonna help you adjust the rooms you’re in frequently, such as at home or at work.

And, you can show your family and colleagues a trick they never knew existed!

NOTE: The app I use in the video is called RevMeter Pro and it’s only available on the iPhone app Store. I haven’t tried any Android apps for the job yet, it’s still on my todo list.

In the meantime, if you search ‘RT60’ on the Android store you’ll find several apps that measure echo, some free some paid. A quick search shows these three with 4*+ ratings: AudioTool (Paid), ClapIR (Free), RT (Free). Let me know if you try any of these.

Enjoy the video and if you find it useful share it with your friends.

  1. Was disappointed that there were no subtitles here, and I found your voice more difficult to hear in this video.
    I wish, too, that you had said upfront that the app for measuring room echo was available only from the iPhone App Store. I have android, so–at least for now–this video wasn’t terribly helpful to me.
    I am glad there is someone like you out there, trying to make the world a more hearing impaired-friendly place. Thank you for your efforts. Will you please let us know if/when you find an Android app?

      Hi Diane,

      I am sorry you could not see subtitles, I have actually captioned this video too, but this time I did it through Facebook. So depending on your settings on Facebook you may or may not see the captions. Try watching it again on my FB page and see if it fixes the problem.

      I’m sorry it wasn’t clear that the app I use is only available for iOS, I edited the post to make that clearer and to suggest some Android alternatives too. Bare in mind that I haven’t tried them yet. I will as soon as I manage to get my hands on an Android phone.

      Will try to upload another demo video for the Android version, will let you know when that’s ready.
