Audiology is a branch of science that deals with hearing, specificlly the evalutation of hearing ability and the rehabilitation of hearing impairments.

Practitioners in this field are called audiologists. Audiologists use a variety of hearing tests and assessments to determine the hearing range of an individual and to diagnose any hearing or balance problems.

Audiologists provide rehabilitation for hearing impairments, including assistive devices such as hearing aids and cochlear implants, as well as compensation skills for hearing loss for people at all stages of life.
