    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.

    Another suggestion would be Fission from Rogue Amoeba, which also works directly in the MP3-format (or AAC for that matter).
