I believe the answer is:

listener

I'm a little stuck... Click here to teach me more about this clue!

'ear perhaps' is the definition.
I can't judge whether this defines the answer.

'let siren damage' is the wordplay.
'damage' indicates an anagram (I've seen 'damaged' mean this).
'let'+'siren'='letsiren'
'letsiren' anagrammed gives 'LISTENER'.

Can you help me to learn more?

(Other definitions for listener that I've seen before include "One enjoying radio broadcast", "One paying attention", "Puzzle", "One trying to hear", "Difficult Times Saturday crossword".)
