Dolphins have ears just as any mammal does. Their ears are designed to
hear underwater unlike terrestrials. There ears work (in general) just
like ours but their brain is more adapted to process sound than ours is.
Interestingly enough dolphins actually hear sound from their lower jaw!!
The jaw is directly linked to their ears. Their outer ears are no longer
useful.
