The anatomy of our hearing or auditory system is extremely complex but can be broadly divided into two parts, one being called ‘peripheral’ and the other ‘central’. The peripheral hearing system consists of three parts which are the outer ear, the middle ear, and the inner ear. The outer ear consists of the pinna, ear canal, and eardrum. The middle ear is a small, air-filled space containing three tiny bones called the malleus, incus, and stapes but collectively called the ossicles. You can observe all of those arts in the following human ear diagrams.

The cochlea is connected to the central hearing system by the hearing or auditory nerve. The cochlea is filled with special fluids that are important to the process of hearing. The role of the outer and middle ear is to transmit sound to the inner ear. They also help compensate for the loss in sound energy that naturally occurs when the sound waves pass from air into water by amplifying the sound energy during the process of sound transmission.
