Here is an example of what I mean.
Do you struggle using headphones that are placed inside the ears?
Are ear plugs just too big?
Well that is because Neanderthal ears not only have a smaller and narrower ear canal, making it harder to insert something into the ear. They also have a completely different and smaller inner ear.
Neanderthals have very sensitive hearing, and can hear high pitched sounds that modern humans can not. This extra sensitive hearing can be a disadvantage in a noisy city, as having the ability to hear everything in fine detail becomes confusing when there are too many different sounds. It makes it near impossible to focus on just one thing.
Walking past cash machines, the high pitch noise from them is deafening. Computers all make a high pitch noise too. TV sets, and most other electrical items make high pitched noises that modern humans are oblivious of.
Of course this sensitive hearing is ideal for hunting and other skills. It just isn't as useful when you live in a city.
