I currently have 3 output devices, a digital output on my Xonar HDAV, analogue speakers on Xonar HDAV, and a Bluetooth speakers (it's a Bluetooth headset). If I want to control my main speakers volume, I change it to "Speakers (ASUS Xonar HDAV 1.3 Audio Device)". If I want to control my bluetooth headset, I'd change it to "Speakers (Bluetooth Audio Device)", etc... You get the idea...

Can you make a screenshot of your volume mixer? Just in case we're not talking about the same volume mixer...

I hope that my attachment will submit.
Yes, that is the same mixer only comparing to your mixer, I am not able to change anything there.

Sound out of Speakers, not headphones
On my brand new Asus laptop, I have not been able to figure out how to get sound out of my headphones when I plug them in.
