Hydrops effect on hearing is, at least in part, physical

Found this paper that studies how EH effects the physical chain that conducts sound to your inner ear.

I’ve always thought my tinnitus and hearing loss is physical and not neural as I have a strange new resonant vibration at lower frequencies (which rears its ugly head when watching live music, ugh), although apparently no loss of sensitivity at low frequencies like menieres sufferers have when at normal volume and the tinnitus is the result of your ear and brain whacking up the gain to regain the lost amplitudes (hence a greater signal to noise ratio).
