    I don't think I understand how invulnerability could work for the ears. Don't the ears pick up vibrations to hear? If they were too dense, then "invulnerable" characters that do no have super-hearing like Hercules and Hulk* would surely be deaf.
    On the other hand, invulnerable charactes like "Superman" who do have super-hearing while perhaps not being deaf, would still vulnerable since their powers compensate.

    Don't even get me started on Daredevil and Wolverine. If you wanted to beat those guys, just use a whistle to mess them up.

    * Unless it's now the angrier he gets the better his hearing also becomes.

It depends on the nature of your durability. Some characters don't own their "invulnerability" to their increase density. The ear drum bleed resulting from a canary cry was always something illogical in the case of Superman because his ear drums are as thought has the rest. That they are more sensible should make him more susceptible to sensory overload (deaf) but not to injury. Superman has sensible eyes too and he doesn't burn his eye balls every times he look at the sun. Why the difference? It's a comicbook tradition like Wolverine doing the impossible and cutting through anything.
