Pulse audio set default device to headset


I got a usb headset for christmas (windows based of course) but it seems to work. Anyway I cant get normal sound to go though the headset instead of the speakers, after looking around for a while I installed pulse audio, still nothing. Any ideas, questions, or comments would be appreciated.

Well, my dad solved it. Simply add asoundrc to your home directory, should look like this:

#
pcm.!default {
type hw
card (card id)
}
ctl.!default {
type hw
card (card id)
}

Or something more like this if you want to actually select it in pavucontrol. (assuming it is selectable)

#----- ~/.asoundrc
#
pcm.pulse {
type pulse
}
ctl.pulse {
type pulse
}
pcm.!default {
type pulse
}
ctl.!default {
type pulse
}
#-----


Maybe add

#-----
defaults.pcm.card (card id)
#-----

if the device in question isn't card 0. When I don't use pulse, this is often my only line in .asoundrc.
