    A usb speaker is attached to my laptop (OS X 10.8.3).

    When I plug in a headphone to my Macbook, the audio doesn't automatically get routed to the headphone. I have to manually select the "Headphone" option under Sound preferences.

    And when I unplug the headphones, the audio doesn't revert to the USB speakers. Instead, the audio goes back to the internal speaker. I have to go back to Sound preference panels and change the output device to USB speaker.

    Is there any way I could make the transition between USB speakers and headphones more seamless?

    If you hold option while clicking on the volume adjust in the menu bar, it gives you a pulldown that lets you select audio devices. Much faster than going to System Preferences.
