The transfer functions through these alternative pathways to the cochleae are unknown, but the lack of acoustic isolation between the cochleae resulting from bone conduction would probably lead to a disruption in interaural difference cues and also lead to stimulus properties that are inconsistent with those of the airborne sound.
