I'm wondering how far is the hearing radius for elves, humans, dwarves, etc.?
For example, I'm a Wood Elf and I'm in a battle (assume the battle is loud). A wizard casts Darkness within 5 feet of me (thus, I am Blinded). Meanwhile, 55 feet from me, a person is hiding in a bush, but whose Stealth check hasn't beaten my Passive Perception. Can I hear him rustling through the bush, even though he is 55 feet away? It sounds impossible to hear him from that distance.
Is there a radius in which:
I can hear clearly (no Perception penalties)?
I can hear less clearly (with penalties)?
I can't hear at all?
