Pretty self explanatory. I play vids on my computer with 5.1 surround, but at night it bothers the other people in the house so I'd like to have an easy switch to use my stereo headphones in a snap. Does something like that exist?

I don't have a speaker system with its own headphone jack, unfortunately (Creative T6160). That would be quite handy... :) 

Thanks!

This is what I use to switch default audio devices.

Thanks Wolfshadw, for that. However, I'm looking for a hardware option as I can't get both the speakers at 5.1 and the headphones at stereo even plugged in to the same system. So a script is meaningless for me right now...
