Did a quick image search for the echidnas from SA and even they wear boxing gloves which is a bit weird considering their culture is so primitive...
Boxing gloves are just gloves for them. For echidnas, they're not advanced.

Just because boxing gloves aren't primitive for human civilization doesn't mean the same is true for a different civilization.

So how the hell can Knuckles hear without ears?

Who said he had no ears? They could be concealed under his spines or something. Birds don't exactly have visible ears yet they can hear just fine.

What slightly got me about Season 3 of Sonic X was that the ages of characters were ambiguous. Characters still have eyecatchers in the released JP versions of the episodes 53-78 yet no age is stated on them. IMO, this was a sneaky way of not referencing the weird way time flows throughout the series.

For instance, it is stated in episode 27 that 6 months passed between the time that episode takes place and episode 26. Then in episode 54, Tails states that only 6 months passed in his world/dimension between episode 52 and the time in that episode. Sensically, this must mean that all of the characters aged at least one year between season 1/2 and season 3 yet their info cards don't state any age;

Sonic should be at least 16 in season 3 as at least one year passed over the series.

Oddly, Cosmo's age was never stated on her info card, only her weight and height despite her not being affected by timeflow the same way the other characters are.

Echidnas lack the prominent ears that Hedgehogs or Foxes do, they still have the ability and functions required to hear, but they don't have ear flaps, meaning Knux's dreadlocks hide these ears anyway.

Somebody from Sega sees this and comes up with a new design for Knuckles:

That, my good man, is instant like for days! And it's actually not too far from what echidna ears look like.

Do Sonic's shoes have powers of their own, canonically?

Power Sneakers.

they grant no powers to Sonic whatsoever, but they absorb the near infinite heating and friction generated from going at hypersonic and relativistic speeds.

my headcanon.

Blaze's ponytail it's just hair/fur that she arranges as such

Knuckles has orifices for hearing, below his fur/dreadlocks.

Well, the American manual said that it was Sonic's shoes which made him run fast, but that got quickly retconned and swept under the rug.

Also, I find it weird how Blaze's hair are effectively feathers. Maybe her dad's a bird.

Wasn't there an issue of the comic (may have been one of the Knuckles ones) where both he and his dad (or a relative) took off their gloves which revealed that his Dad (or relative) had normal hands but Knuckles were slightly deformed which actual spiked knuckles due to the radiation of the Master Emerald while growing up?

What made Tails crash in Circus Park and what made the Egg Carrier crash during Kingdom Valley? Literally nothing gets explained properly in these games, it's like you're supposed to just "know".

Don't you know? "The Engines are malfunction!" - Eggman not finishing his sentence if you listen carefully.

Yeah but why didn't they have Mephiles attack the ship to try and get the princess so he can try and release Iblis or something?

And Tails is literally just chilling above Circus Park, then he randomly crashes. There's no indication as to where and he comes back to rendezvous with Shadow pretty damn fast.

...The scriptwriting?

"...and then Mephiles...WHAT?! Oh for the love of...Metal Sonic, watch the controls for a moment. I have to speak with my agent."

BUT THEY FORGOT TO PUT METAL IN

Alternatively, he just saw the script and had a heart attack.

Also I can't remember why Tails crashes in SA1. Is it because he loses control of the plane with the Emerald in it or something?

I assume the Emerald overloads the plane.

I maybe didn't phrase my thoughts too well, i meant it was funny that the Echidnas wore the exact same kind of gloves that the characters wear in the modernday, as in civilization has advanced from the primitve Mayan-like society of the echidnas to the advanced culture of modern sonic but they still make gloves in the exact same way, even down to the fabric it seems :P
