I was wondering since Spock is Vulcan and his people have long ears, does that mean they have better hearing ability?

    It was stated that they had better hearing but not because of the shape.

    Spock was an old school aviator : google “Spock E6B”

    There were a couple of episodes where Kirk commented on Spock's "Vulcan" hearing... Assuming it meant that Vulcans had better hearing than humans. No proof that the shape of his ears had anything to do with it. If bigger ears mean better hearing, then a Ferengi like Quark should have been able to hear a whisper at 1000 feet!

    With the same amount of tissue you could build a rounder ear which would have more surface area.  More surface area=more sound captured.  So my answer is no.  The only reason for pointed ears in my opinion would be attracting mates.

    Yes, it has been pointed out that all Vulcans' senses are superior to humans'.

    Odd, i didn't learn about this in my A & P classes? My avatar is a Pratt R-320 engine spooling up on a 1928 Ford TriMotor.

    No need for good hearing. They can do mind melding and find out without words.

    Obviously this question does not belong here. I can only assume because it contains the word "Vulcan" the computer thinks he is asking about a plane. If only there were some way to move this question...

      Also, to answer your question, pretty much EVERYTHING about Spock was better. His hearing, intelligence, physical strength, endurance, and longevity were all more than a human.

    His long ears are the result of evolutionary need for better hearing in the thin air of Vulcan.

      Why would thin air require longer, pointed ears? They never gave a reason for Vulcans having pointed ears. They just wanted to make him look different than humans.

    Cats have much better hearing than humans, and have smaller ears than humans.

    Can you draw some conclusion from that?

    (apart from the fact that you are spending too much time on completely pointless and silly notions, that is)

    He's half Vulcan. He has better hearing, eyesight and everything else. Not because he's part Vulcan but because he's Spock.

    Live long and prosper.
