What about plasma microphones or recording the nerve impulses from a human ear at some point in the future?

We have to go beyond a vibrating mylar or paper membrane and a coil of wire if we wish to replicate reality at some future date. We must be able to record all the neural data going into the brain and then reproduce that in another individual. Take the current crude cochlear implants or auditory brain stem implants and extrapolate a hundred years of development with nanotechnology. Instead of today's mere couple dozen electrode array, implants would have a million electrodes in the device array. Where every individual nerve cell could be stimulated.
