What is Silenz?

Silenz is an app dedicated to headphones users who listen to music as a way to keep focused.

The app solves problems encountered by virtually every headphones user. Thanks to it, you no longer need to remove them each time you need to hear what is happening around.

It monitors the sounds of your surrounding in a smart way; once it detects a significant sound (e.g. human speech or telephone ringing), it reacts by pausing or adjusting the volume of media players.

The app can also amplify the registered outside sounds and mix them with the currently played music.

Apart from that, Silenz helps you avoid irritating activities like pausing music when you want to unplug headphones or lock your computer.

Key features:

  • Pausing music and sound muting on headphones disconnect or screen lock
  • Pass-through of microphone sound
  • Smart monitoring of surrounding sounds
  • System-wide key gesture for pausing music and enabling pass-through
  • Custom system-wide shortcuts for mute toggle and mode selection
  • Playback and volume control of the following media apps: Apple Music, Apple TV, iTunes, Spotify, VOX, Radium, Audirvana, Swinsian, Decibel, Radiant Player, Hermes, Downcast, Broadcasts, Anesidora, VLC


Silenz is available on the Mac App Store and Setapp.
