Windows 7: Audio from speakers, not from headset, vice-versa.

Audio from speakers, not from headset, vice-versa.

I have 2 speakers, nothing fancy. And a Sennheiser USB headset. Problem is when I set my default audio device to Realtek High Def Audio, my speakers work and my headphones don't. I have to manually set the default device to my headphones, but then my speakers don't work.

Is there a way to have audio through both?

Unless the program has the option of using an audio device other than the Windows default (and a USB headset is a second audio device with its own driver, and fucntions completely independent of whatever other sound card is installed), then what you are looking to do isn't going to happen.
