Hearing provides the basis for localization and ensures that you correctly perceive the direction of the incoming sound. In road traffic, in particular, this can be a matter of life and death. How often have you heard a car before you have seen it? To sense how far away a car is and the direction from which it is coming you need two properly functioning ears. In conversation with friends as well, good hearing is indispensable. In a conversation it's not just the words themselves that count. Only the emphasis and volume can give them their precise meaning.
