    Hello Everyone,

    This question is for an iMac running Lion ...

    I have a set of USB speakers that I use as the primary sound output on the computer. They do not have a headphone jack, so when I want to use my headphones I plug them into the iMac directly.

    This means I have to go into System Preferences and change the sound output device.

    So, does anyone know of an app that can place a little icon on the menu bar to quickly change sound devices? Is there some other way to quickly switch without having to go into System Preferences?

    You can click on the speaker symbol in the menu bar while holding alt/option to access output and input devices.
