I had read ears normally have an omnidirectional pickup pattern. Kinda wondering if they are modded with 'vents' if it affects the polar pattern?

That'll mess with the room correction on your AV Receiver...

On the hand, with sufficient research there might become available ear mods that get you Atmos/DTS:X without having to install speakers in the ceiling.

Ew. That would definitely mess with ones hearing.

Our ears are very specifically designed. Anything beyond piercing is like popping open a control panel on a spaceship and messing around with wires without any knowledge on the design.

Also, it looks hella nasty.
