If you were to put earbuds in your nose, would your brain interpret the sounds?

I hear that song in my nightmares
It'd be equally gross as using them the intended way.
Depends what sound you play through them, but some sound would likely be transmitted through bone to your inner ear, which you would hear as normal.
You would not hear 'directly' through your nose, as your brain interprets sound in the auditory cortex, which is connected only to the cochleas in the ears. Other parts of the brain do not interpret information as sound.
Interesting, thank you!
