I try to find audio app which visualizes long audio files so i can easily skip quiet parts and find when there is talk.

What -kind- of audio files do you have?
Are they mp3, AIFF, WAV, or something else?

If all you want to do is listen to the files, try "Audacity", which I think is free.
http://www.audacityteam.org/download/mac/

You should be able to open the file in Audacity, and then observe the waveform. Just scroll "to the right" to find the quiet spots.

If you want to re-edit the files to cut out the quiet spots, Audacity can do that, too.
But for trimming mp3's, I find the utility "MP3 Trimmer" to work better, because it works in "native mp3 file format", with no loss of audio quality.
