I have a Win7 (64bit) install with two sound devices - the built in sound card and a pair of USB speakers. I want to leave the speakers as the default device and selectively switch applications audio output to the head phones.

In the mixer I can select either device, but can't see a way to reassign one audio stream or application to the other device... am I missing something here?

I don't know which audio application you want, but it's possible with windows media player.

Open windows media player rightclick -> options -> devices -> double click Speakers, open the select audio device and then choose the device you want for playing music

Then you can still use another device as default sound device in Windows.

(works with windows 7)

I wanted (in this instance) to switch IE to the Realtek sound card.

So in short - it isn't possible... yet...

Well at least I wasn't being dim - trying to right click on the app in the sound mixer to re-assign it just seemed like the way it would work and left me wondering what I was doing wrong.

It isn't possible to do what was originally asked. Yet.
