When you choose Horizon Audiology, Inc. as your hearing aid provider, the consultation starts with a test conducted by a skilled audiologist. If it’s determined that you would benefit from a hearing aid, the next step is to gain a full understanding of your needs. In addition to considering any underlying health issues, we’ll look at everything from professional demands to whether you spend a lot of time attending lectures, which requires the ability to hear and process speech, or if you prefer to fill your days with travel.
Although we’ll see you four times during your first year using hearing aids to monitor your improvement and make the necessary adjustments, knowing your options from the outset can help you make an informed decision.
Hearing Aid Styles
We offer a variety of hearing aid styles that offer many options in terms of style, application, and special features.
- Invisible-In-Canal (IIC) and Lyric: These hearing aids aren’t visible to onlookers. The IIC helps mild-to-moderate hearing loss, while Lyric is more suitable for helping patients with mild-to-severe hearing loss.
- Full Shell (FS/ITE): This larger model fills the outer ear bowl and can help with mild-to-severe hearing loss.
- Completely-In-Canal (CIC): The CIC is barely visible and helps mild-to-moderate hearing loss.
- Behind-the-Ear (BTE): The BTE hooks over the ear for security and is the ultimate in amplification.
- In-the-Canal (ITC): Custom-molded ITC hearing aids are designed to help with mild-to-moderate hearing loss.
- Open Fit (OTE/RIC): Petite and made to fit behind the ear, the OTE/RIC can help any kind of hearing loss, but it may be especially effective for those experiencing loss in higher frequencies.
Brands We Carry
As a certified Lyric provider, we’re proud to bring the incredible technology behind Lyric by Phonak to our neighbors in Mercer County. This innovative hearing aid is the first and only extended-wear hearing solution made to be 100% invisible. Once placed in the ear canal, Lyric is remarkably discrete yet still delivers clear, natural sound, and it’s comfortable enough to wear around-the-clock — even while exercising, showering, and completing other strenuous tasks.
Horizon Audiology also carries hearing aids from trusted brands, such as ReSound, Unitron, GN ReSound, Oticon, Widex, Starkey, and Signia. Whether you’re looking to change up the device you’re currently wearing or about to explore hearing aids for the first time, our team of experts can walk you through options and ensure you get the model and fit best suited to your unique needs.

Horizon Audiology is now a proud certified Lyric provider and the only Lyric provider in Mercer county! Lyric by Phonak is the first and only 100% invisible extended wear hearing solution. Once placed, it can be worn 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and is even designed to be worn during daily activities (like showering and sleeping).
