Breakaway is a utility that will pause/resume iTunes for you whenever you unplug and/or plug in your headphones. You can now walk away from your computer for a moment without missing a beat of your favorite song, or disturbing anyone with your speakers coming on.

Optionally, you can enable mute button functionality, which makes your mute button act as a pause for iTunes. Need to take a call? Hit mute on your keyboard and talk all you need. As soon as you unmute, iTunes will resume once more.

Note: If you want to use Breakaway solely for mute button functionality, be sure to disable "Headphones mode"
