In brief: Bone loss

Sound from the air is transmitted through a mechanical system (ear drum, ear bones) into a fluid system of the inner ear that then activates a neural system (electrical).
The electrical system is what is responsible for neural hearing. The ear drum and ear bones provide the conductive hearing. Damage to the ear drum or ear bones (ossicles) leads to conductive hearing loss.
