It's possible. Or it could be that your ears are making your teeth sore. Go to the dentist and have the area checked or to the doctor and have your ears checked.

A failed upper root canal effected my hearing on that side. Going to neither dentist, neurologist, EENT Specialist nor family physician ever proved useful. X-rays, MRI and CAT Scan showed nothing. Hearing tests showed some hearing loss due to ringing/buzzing in the ear which began in conjunction with the root canal. Only temporarily, after use of antibiotics, the ringing went away but returned a week later and nothing has helped since. I have lived with ear ringing for 15 years and I am certain the root canal was the cause.

shown for people that have root canals over time have a lower white blood cell count than a person with more teeth.

Yes, having a root canal can cause hearing loss; I wonder if Rush L. ever connected his nine to ten root canals, for cosmetic purposes, to his hearing loss? Read Tooth Truth by Frank Jerome, Dentist. The truth will set you free.

There is no studied or researched direct effect.

Should you use an antibiotic to get rid of bad taste in your mouth due to failed root canal?

Since a failed root canal may result in an infection, you should consult your dentist rather than trying to diagnose and treat yourself. Even if you do need an antibiotic, it matters which antibiotic you use, and some are available only by prescription. Furthermore, the failed root canal should be repaired.

the best predictor is why you needed a root canal in the first place. if its due to trauma, success is extremely high. if its due to infection, success rates are a little lower. the root anatomy of the tooth also factors into success rate.

How much does a failed root canal job cost?

Call the dentist that did your root canal or any current dentist. When the nerve dies the tooth turns grey. Then the tooth has to be pulled. Depending on where your 'root canal' is, you may need a bridge or implant. This was my experience. Cost would depend on the dentist fee and insurance consideration. Blessings.
