audiometry

 [aw″de-om´ĕ-tre]
measurement of the acuity of hearing through generation of tones of known frequencies and amplitudes. See also audiogram (def. 2). adj., adj audiomet´ric.
electrocochleographic audiometry measurement of electrical potentials from the middle ear or external auditory canal (cochlear microphonics and eighth nerve action potentials) in response to acoustic stimuli.
pure tone audiometry audiometry utilizing pure tones that are relatively free of noise and overtones.
speech audiometry that in which the speech reception threshold in decibels and the ability to understand speech (speech discrimination) are measured.

speech audiometry

A test of the ability to hear and understand speech. The threshold of detection is measured in decibels.
