As long as AutoMute is running, whenever your Mac goes to sleep, wakes up, or a pair of headphones gets disconnected - the sound is automatically muted.
Works with bluetooth headphones as well!
This is meant to prevent those embarrassing moments when you're arriving at your perfectly silent office or school, opening up your mac, only to find out your beloved "Best of Shakira" playlist is still playing at full volume from last night...
It will also prevent the classic "walk too far away with your bluetooth headset" scenario, where again your mac will take over the sound and allow your co-workers to bask in your embarrassment.

- Fixed an issue where auto-muting wasn't working well with some headphones.

Great App - Amazing for those with office anxiety
This App is absolutely perfect! I got so tired of sound blasting out of my computer when I remove my headphones. This App solves that problem.
It also has the added bonus of preventing my computer from making embarrasing noises when I first open it for the day.
I highly recommend this App.
Works on 2016 MBP w TouchBar
This is really great! My iPhone pauses the active sound source when headphones are removed.
Since Mac OS can have multiple simultaneous sources, muting is the next best thing.
I tested briefly with my in-ear headphones and the application did seem to detect the insert and remove events.
The menu-bar status icon is a very nice touch.
Great utility, needs to support muting upon connection
Great idea for a utility, it works well. One big missing feature for me is muting when headphones *connect*. Often I’ll have my Mac muted, then when I plug in headphones, the computer always remembers the headphones’ last volume.. which sometimes makes for a rude surprise.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
