Audiology would probably be the most relevant course.

Southampton has such a course, which also works closely with their engineering departments to explore it from technological perspectives as well. That would also qualify you (or at least move you towards qualifying) as an audiologist, outside of research (which they do a lot of there anyway). While nominally a clinical course allowing you to become an audiologist, it does have research experience and a 4 year undergrad masters (MSci) version with more in depth masters level research (which would be a suitable background for a relevant PhD project).

More generally Biomedical Sciences or Physiology/Anatomy type courses might be suitable (perhaps Neuroscience for that side of things), but if you want to focus on the ear and hearing anyway then Audiology is probably the most directly relevant to your interests. If you were much more interested in e.g. developmental biology of the ear or neurobiological aspects of hearing then one of these courses might be more suitable to give you a broader background in human biology before specialising into the ear and hearing for your PhD.

I would imagine you should be able to do a medical degree then continue to a PhD relating to that area, maybe unless the PhD is very psychosocially oriented in which case you might want/need to do a masters focusing more on that area? I think you'd probably be able to do such a PhD from a medical degree anyway though.

ecolier might be able to advise on it a bit from a neurological perspective perhaps?
