Streaming audio to two outputs

Hey guys, I tried looking for an answer to this in the forums and on Google first, but I couldn't find anything for my issue. I have a set of computer speakers that I like to listen to music through, and a USB headset that I like to listen to games and movie through. I switch back and forth pretty often, but every time I do, I have to log out and log back in for the newly plugged-in device to actually make sound. Is there any way to set up Win7 to play audio to both devices so that I can just turn off my speakers when not in use? Or does anyone else have any better ideas for a set up?

For my music, I use Google Play, so I'm not too sure if this is a Win7 or Chrome issue.

Hi, If you right click the Sound icon, then Playback devices, by right clicking one of the listed devices, you are able to disable it, choose it as the default one a.s.o.
