In brief: Ehlers-Danlos?

I am assuming by "eds" you mean ehlers–danlos syndrome.
If so, then no. There are no hearing problems that are associated with eds. Poor balance (which s an inner ear problem) is common.

I should re-phrase the answer. Hearing problems are not a usual feature of EDS. It can occur but it is rare.

The hearing mechanism of the inner ear can be effected.

In brief: Yes

There are multiple types of ehlers danlos syndrome and the different types have different genetics and problems.
The most common is eds type 3, joint hypermobility syndrome which is associated with loose joints and sometimes skin & joint and muscle pain. Hearing and visual problems are uncommon.
