Ears overview

With Ears you can quickly change your Mac’s sound output/input with only your keyboard.
Don’t open System Preferences or reach for your mouse. Just press a hotkey to change your Mac’s speakers and microphone.

Want to use that nice pair of Bluetooth headphones? Or pipe your coworkers’ voices on Zoom to your AirPods but make sure they hear you over your USB microphone? Done.

100% mouse-free. Summon Ears with the keyboard hotkey of your choice, and then pick your speakers and microphone with just your arrow keys or their shortcut key.

What’s new in version 1.5

Updated on Aug 01 2022

  • This update to Ears finally resolves the longstanding Instamute bug on macOS Monterey that would mute the sound output of Bluetooth headphones when muting the microphone. I was never able to work around this bug myself, so thanks very much to the kind Apple engineers who fixed this in macOS 12.4.
  • Also, a new preference has been added that will color the microphone icon red when not muted. Early versions of Ears (~2020) used this red icon, but enough users complained it was distracting that I changed it to black. Well, now enough users are speaking up again in the other direction, so now it's a preference. Black or Red. Your choice.
