Sorry for the horrible title!
I'll cut to the chase... I have a noisy neighbour and hear a lot of 'Impact Sounds', I believe the frequencies are < 100 Hz.
The council advised me to use 'The Noise App'. I made a short video, and hopefully you guys can makes sense of what I'm trying to demonstrate here. Just Off-Camera, I am banging a wall and there is a deep thud / boom sound (replicating the sounds I hear from my neighbours) - Decibel X shows up to 70db, while The Noise App records nothing.
This is annoying as I submit my 'evidence', they then listen to it (through what equipment, I am unsure) and hear nothing, in turn saying there is no noise.
How can I simply explain to them (without coming across as condescending) that The Noise App is not adequately recording these sounds, while you can see there is sound when referencing the SPL.
Hope you guys understand where I'm coming from.
