A program that easily changes speakers, headsets, and earphones to one hotkey

Typical users connect the speakers to the rear panel and connect the terminals to the front panel when you need to use an earphone or headset. In this way, the default setting of the Realtek HD Audio Manager ignores the back panel when the front panel is plugged in, so the speaker automatically mutes and the sound is heard through the headset.

As most users use this method, it is a very intuitive and convenient way to look at it at first glance, but there is a fatal drawback to plug and unplug the headset terminal every time. Unless you really need to change the output device occasionally, it will have a big impact on the durability of the terminal as well as the hassle. In short, if you put it in and out, it will quickly break. So if you need to change the output device frequently, such as a PC room, where both hassle and durability are important, you can easily change the output device and sound card with one button with a speaker on the rear panel and a headset on the front panel.

But in a PC room, it's usually solved through hardware,'AudioSwitch'It is very simple and can produce the same effect anywhere.
