General audio topics that don't fit into specific categories.

Not that way.

First, all natural sounds are heard via the transformations of the external, middle and inner ears and, so, bypassing them by direct auditory nerve stimulation would only require that we simulate their effects anyway.

Second, in order to stimulate the auditory nerve electrically, we would still need mechanical transducers to encode the sound into electrical signals.
