How's Your Noise? A Poll of All MHs

Wifey just installed the decibel meter app on her iPhone, and we've been having great fun, measuring various noise levels.

For those of you with iPhones willing to plunk down $.99 for this handy tool, how does your rig rate?

We took an audio snapshot at 65 mph on smooth pavement in light winds, scored 71-73 dB in the front seats of our 2005 Fleetwood Excursion. By comparison, her new Honda Crosstour rang in at 69 dB.

Remember to turn off your stereo, tell the kids to hush...

I WORK IN A REFINERY AND I BELIEVE 90db IS THE LEVEL WHERE OSHA MANDATES HEARING PROTECTION.....
I AM NOT AT ALL SURE HOW HIGH MINE IS.

I just downloaded the sound meter for the Droid. Very nice app and the price is right (free). It shows the max, min and median values and has a comparison chart that ranges from whispering to a jet engine.
