Hearing impairment is a disability wherein the ability to detect certain frequencies of sound is completely or partially impaired. Deafness can mean the same thing, but is more commonly applied to the case of severe or complete hearing impairment.

When applied to humans, the term hearing impaired is rejected by the majority of deaf people where the terms deaf and hard-of-hearing are preferred.
