'''Audiometry''' is the testing of hearing ability. Typically, audiometric tests determine a subject's [[equal-loudness contour|hearing levels]] with the help of an [[audiometer]], but may also measure ability to discriminate between different sound intensities, recognize [[Pitch (music)|pitch]], or distinguish [[speech]] from background noise. [[Acoustic reflex]] and [[otoacoustic emission]]s may also be measured. Results of audiometric tests are used to diagnose [[deaf|hearing loss]] or diseases of the [[ear]].

Audiometry is the evaluation of hearing ability and hearing impairment. These tests are usually administered by an audiologist or audiometrist .

Typically, audiometric tests determine a subject's hearing levels with the help of an audiometer, but may also measure ability to discriminate between different sound intensities, recognize pitch, or distinguish speech from background noise.

Acoustic reflex and otoacoustic emissions may also be measured.

Results of audiometric tests are used to diagnose hearing loss or diseases of the ear.
