"To name the horizon in relation to the visual field is to name the World [...] With the auditory turn, however, the horizon does not show even such vague spatial significations except as thresholds of hearing."
In Heideggerian terms, Ihde describes the auditory horizon as the point at which sounds are given over into the present. Sound is a giving and listening is what "lets come into presence the unbidden giving of sound."
"Presence is situated within its horizons"
In describing visual depth and horizonal perspective, Ihde says the latter has "a constant ratio of present to hidden, of visible to invisible" and that, auditorily, "this hidden depth is silence"
