Another book you may want to read after those two is:

"The Mammalian Auditory Pathway: Neurophysiology", Popper and Fay,
Editors, Springer-Verlag 1992.

The book tries to be a bridge between intro books and journal reading.
Another good book with the same aim is

Auditory function : neurobiological bases of hearing / edited by Gerald M.
Edelman, W. Einar Gall, W. Maxwell Cowan.  New York : Wiley, c1988.
Series title:  Neurosciences Institute publications series.

Although its a few years old, the chapters in this book are noteworthy
for how well they address the reader who is familiar with neuroscience
but relatively unfamiliar with the specifics of audition.
