耳新しい

I know that the word 耳新しい has both the meanings of novel/unfamiliar and something heard for the first time, but I'm unclear as to the usage of it in the first meaning. Can it be used idiomatically and refer to something unfamiliar in a sense not related to hearing, or is it strictly an auditory reference?

Thanks!
