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.
