Both actually: Most ENT work with audiology to assure a complete assessment of one's hearing. Obviously, you'll need a thorough hearing evaluation (from audiologist) but you'll also need an assessment of your ear anatomy and physiology to understand the reasons for hearing loss.

ENT: Recommend seeing an ENT first to rule out certain disorders associated with hearing loss. Then the audiologist.
