Easier way to switch sound output device

I bought a USB soundcard for my Macbook Pro, so I can use a headset mic for Skype. By default, the. sound goes to a pair of external speakers (for iTunes) or the built-in speakers (on the road/gaming)

"It sounds like you are after SoundSource:

SoundSource is a tiny tool for OS X enabling you to switch your audio input and output sources with a single click, and even adjust their volume settings.

Another program that does the same thing is PTHVolume."

You can press Option-Volume(Up/Down/Mute) to open the Sound Preferences directly, although you would still need to select the desired output.
