I suppose the word you are looking for specifically, is "otic":
of, relating/pertaining to, or located near the ear
One could therefore say: "Nose" is to "nasal", as "ear" is to "otic."
Additionally, although "aural" is commonly associated with "sound", "aural" can also be used to refer to pertaining to the ear:
of or pertaining to the ear.
This can be compared to "nasal":
Of or pertaining to the nose.
One could therefore also say: "Nose" is to "nasal", as "ear" is to "aural"
Auditory is your word.
Of or relating to the sense of hearing: "the auditory nerves".
